Tricia Traxler – July Swanky Stamper


July 2015

If there is one thing I love, it’s textures and patterns and colors. Nothing can make my jaw drop faster than a card that mixes all three of these things I love, like this Swanky Stamper winning card by Tricia Traxler. She uses “Drop In” to create a whimsical scene, and mixes patterns in the panels that float behind the bunny, and texture with an embossed background. Then, she finishes the card off with grass and stitched clouds for extra texture. LOVE!


Also in the LOVE column is this card by Joan V using Birdhouses and the stamp set that goes with. Check out the texture in the posts! SQUEEE!


Also, worth a Squee or two is this card by Indy! The bunny travels all over the world in his beautifully patterned balloon. I would love to float alongside him.


Brenda also uses this bunny, but he is heading only one way. Up. That’s because Brenda Nakandakari  uses the Slider die to make this card extra special.

BrendaNHere it is completely slid open. I am crazy about the different color paper she placed above the cloudline and the stitched clouds she added to the balloon.
