More Shoebox Swaps

Here are some more ideas I shared at my Stampin'Up! Open House at the beginning of October.  
The projects shown in this post are from the August Shoebox Swap at Tara's house.  We had a great time making each others projects, and I came home with new ideas.  

I love this card!  My friend Glenda made it.  So fun and easy!!  We used the Envelope Punch Board to make the card, glued down the center pieces, and I love how she added the Butterfly Punch and silver ribbon.  It made it so elegant.  Can you imagine making this into a Holiday card, or how great would this be as a gift card holder?  

This sweet card was Angela's card, I love the stamp set, it's a hostess set, so if you host a workshop or place an order of $150 or more you can order this as part of your hostess dollars.  
Here's the whole stamp set, too cute.

Masking Tape!  Yes, that is a technique, and this card is a great example.  How do you do it?   It's so easy, here's the how…

Take a strip of masking tape, ink it on your ink pad, and then put it on your paper.  
I had never done this before, and now I cannot wait to do it again.  I inked my masking tape and then gently laid it on my Whisper White card stock.  I started from the top and worked my way down.  I lightly ran my finger along the tape while it was on the paper, then gently pulled the tape back off the paper.  Be careful not to ripe your paper by pulling to fast or pressing your tape down too hard.  The harder you press your tape to the paper the darker your ink will be. So you can really very the effect.  
For this card we used Pistachio Pudding ink, Crisp Cantaloupe and Baked Brown Sugar.  What a soft wonderful effect. 

 Here's a photo of all the cards from the Shoebox Swap.  Love the ideas!

Hope you enjoyed all the ideas.  Come back for more!
