Hey there stampers! It's time for Sunday Swap Day, yay!
First, fellow Stamper's Dozen Blog hopper Judy Garza gold heat-embossed the Definitely Dahlia stamp on Party Animal Designer Series Paper for an elegant look.
Phrases from Thoughts & Prayers and Gold Metallic Enamel Shapes are the finishing touches.
Next, Janace Charbonneau used the "split negative" technique for her Definitely Dahlia card.
To accomplish the "split negative" technique, she stamped Definitely Dahlia twice, once with Sweet Sugarplum and once with Perfect Plum, on Whisper White squares. She then cut both squares in half so she could put them back together with the colors switched. Sweet!
Perfect Plum bumblebees, cut with a Detailed Dragonfly Thinlet, add depth and dimension.
Kathy Johnson used the "emboss resist" technique with Sweet Sugarplum, Basic Black, and Whisper White for her creation.
A Rose Wonder phrase is accented by a Stitched Shapes oval and a Layering Ovals scallop oval, as well as a Basic Black butterfly punched from the Bitty Butterfly punch, which is retiring.
Finally, a nameless-but-lovely swap using Floral Phrases, Papillion Potpourri (retiring), and the Bitty Butterfly and the Elegant Butterfly punches (both also retiring)
After stamping with Night of Navy, Mint Macaron was sponged for a soft look.
The creator also used Dragonfly Dreams elements to pull it all together.
