Swapping Cards is Time Well Spent

At our SU! group Christmas party on Sunday we did a card swap using the new hostess set Time Well Spent. All the cards turned out so darn cute! I really like this set, and can't wait to have more time to do some scrapbook pages with it.

This first card was made by Karman. I love the colors she used and the textured background! She said she ran her white Craft pad over the background to really highlight it more and soften the color of the Wild Wasabi card stock. I've been trying to resist getting a Cuttlebug...but seeing cute cards like this one makes it even more tempting!

This card was made by Bea. I love how she used the wire for the butterfly's antenna and the way she popped up the center of the flower with the rhinestone brad.

This adorable bookmark was made by Jodie. I said she must really like us to have done so much cutting...she stamped and cut the big flower twice and layered it with the leaves. Then she even shared some of her Pretties with us. The center flower and pearl are from the pretties kit. She said she dyed the flower with her red Craft ink pad and carefully dried it with her heat tool.
This next one is a post it note pad cover made by Kelly. Isn't it cute?! I just love the Fall Flowers designer paper she used.
This last card was made by me. I water colored the big flower with the inks from the coordinating card stock I used: Pomegranate, Blue Bayou, Soft Sky & Guava. Then finished it with a pearl from the Pretties kit and glitter pen on the dots on the flower...which doesn't really show in the photo.
Like Jodie said after our get together...Spending time stamping with friends is Time Well Spent! I agree! Thanks for doing such an awesome job on the swaps ladies!
