Splitcoaststampers Sweet and Sassy Swap!








Hello all! Today I am sharing my swap cards that I made for a swap that I signed up for way back in May. Of course, it took me all summer to get to them! But, they are done, and I am very happy with how they turned out!
The first set of cards is for the Sweet swap! I just recently purchased Multi-Step Berries from Kitchen Sink Stamps and wanted to try them out! Oh my gosh, can I tell you how much I LOVE this stamp set?! You will be seeing a lot of berry cards on here in the coming weeks! And let me tell you, doing the multi step stamping is really easy! Maria Colosimo, the owner of Kitchen Sink Stamps, provides color recipes both on her blog and on the website. The design team members also provide their own color recipes which are SO nice to be able to use! Like in this case, I used Maria's color recipe for the strawberries! Perfect!!! I was so doing it wrong, until I read her recipe again.
Oh, and I copied the idea for the card shape from Linda Beeson's blog! She has this awesome card that she came up with using the Labels One nesties for the shape of the entire card! I just had to try it for myself! Thanks Linda for the awesome inspiration!!!!
The second set of cards is for the Sassy swap! I used my MFT set Maid for You. The sentiment is from Twisted Swo. You can find this in the Tongue in Cheek section in the MFT store!
Happy Stamping!!!

  2. Erin these are so so cute. Love that strawberry card. When did you get that set or did we talk about it? I remember looking at them online while we talked on the phone. Anyhow, you did an amazing job. I broke out some MFT stamps today and created a fun little gift set & box and then saw that I had met the requirements for one of their challenges. Woooohoooo, I will enter it tomorrow
