I hosted a card swap for my team recently and today I am showing you all of the projects. My only stipulation was that we use current Stampin' Up! products only. If you are not part of a team and would like to be, I would love to have you! We are into the final weeks of the special promotion on joining Stampin' Up!
Right now Stampin’Up! has an awesome special on the Starter Kit! You can choose $125 in Stampin’Up! product of your choice, plus 2 free stamp sets of your choice, for just $99! That’s almost $200 in product for $99, plus free shipping!
What I love most is that it is No obligation:
- No selling
- No parties
- No requirements
This is the card I created for the card swap. I used the Basket Bunch Bundle for my stamp & die images and the Succulent Garden Designer Paper for the background layer:
I love how quickly I was able to stamp and cut all of my pieces using my Big Shot Machine and the dies. I also used the Stitched Shapes Dies for the oval to house all of my pieces on. I'll list all of the products I used at the end of my post!
Janet Bagnall created this beautiful springy card using the Swirly Bird Bundle. I love her choice of colors. I want spring to get here now and this card makes me want it even more!
Beverly Lazarz made this beauty using the Floral Boutique Suite. So pretty with the Lace Doily added in as one of the layers and the placement of the sentiment looks so striking layered as the top layer:
Janet Meiwes is one of my newest Downline and this is the first time she participates in a team event. Her bundle choice was the Dragonfly Dreams. Janet used white cardstock under the dragonflies and colored using Stampin' Write Markers. What you can't see is the Clear Wink of Stella she painted on the both dragonflies...so elegant!
And how about Maggy Everett's cut little fella sitting on a piece of Washi Tape? The Love You Lots stamp set was used and I love how Maggy colored her background and frog image!
Salli Graham is also one of my newest Downline and she is a little timid about sharing her work. Isn't this card using the Hey, Chick stamp set adorable? The purplish hair is a scream!
And finally, this beauty was created by Sandy Boutilier with beautiful colors and coloring of the image from Pretty Kitty. Notice the little trick she used by outlining the stamped image? This makes the other colors really pop!
Thanks so much to my team for creating these samples for our swap. I hope to have more to show you next time I host this event.
Have you heard about the Bundt Pan Roasted Chicken recipe? I found it in my Facebook Newsfeed a few days ago and just had to give it a whirl. Looks how tasty my roasted chicken looks. It was so delish! And yes, I even have the recipe for you below the photo!
I made this "Bundt Pan Roasted Chicken" recipe that I found on Facebook a few days ago and OH MY! The chicken was so moist and the veggies so tasty. I thought I would share this recipe success with you!
- Using a Bundt Pan, add a piece of foil to cover the hole in the center of the pan.
- Place cut up veggies in the Bundt pan. I used a russet potato, buttercup squash and brussel spouts. I cut up enough veggies for two people. Sprinkle with olive oil, salt and pepper.
- Wash a roasting chicken under the faucet and place over the bundt pan center by positioning the neck of the chicken over the foil center and wiggle as far as it will go. Sprinkle with olive oil, salt, pepper and I used a chicken seasoning blend on mine.
- Place in the oven at 350 degrees and roast until the chicken is cooked according the temperature recommendations. Mine took about 2-1/4 hours.
And now on to the list of Stampin' Up! supplies I used:
