From the Fine Line card swap, the winning Stampin' Up! card used Everything Eleanor! What a beautiful set and what a beautiful card by Dianne Logeais:
The butterfly is made with the Stampin' Up! Big Shot and the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die (p. 193 #114507 $21.95). The row of pearls is a classy accent. Notice that both the butterfly and one of the flowers are popped up with dimensionals.
The butterfly and the paper on the left side of the card are from the Floral District Designer Papers (p. 163 #126919 $10.95). The colors of the inks and card stock are Rich Razzleberry, Lucky Limeade, and Daffodil Delight. Isn't that a great color combination?
Everything Eleanor (p. 112 #124162w $36.95, #124164c $26.95) is a versatile set of eight stamps with three flowers, the large swirly stamp, a bird, and more.
Taking second place is this elegant card by Cathy Seal:
She used the Layered Labels stamp set (p. 103 #127070 $33.95, #127072c $25.95)along with the coordinating Apothecary Accents Framelits (p. 127003 $24.95) and the Stripes Embossing Folder (p. 189 #123128 $7.95). I love the simplicity of this card using mostly Whisper White card stock with just of touch of Midnight Muse.
Third Place went to Jessica Lee with this birthday card:
On my post yesterday, you saw this card with a coordinating gift box containing cookies. They made a great gift package!
This card is beautiful but also simple to make. It uses one of the new host sets, A Cherry On Top, which you can choose with a $150 order! Jessica used Chocolate Chip and Cherry Cobbler Card Stock. The side panel was put through the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder (p. 189 #117335 $7.95) and then tied with 1/2 inch Scallop Dots Ribbon.
Isn't it fun to see what people are choosing as their favorite hand stamped cards? For this swap, the winning Stampin' Up! card used Everything Eleanor! I'm sure these three featured cards have given you inspiration to try out your own ideas!
