This is the first of two posts with photos of the Stampin' Stars WOW Swap that I took part in. They are a bunch of very talented people.
Today I thought I would share the non Christmas swaps that I received.
This cute UPS delivery van was made by Lesley Lendon. Those of you who have ordered from Stampin' Up! or who are demo's know how dear to our hearts the UPS van and drivers are. The van is based on a design originally by Jill Hilliard.
This box of six coasters was made by Rebecca Willmore. She re-cycled some of the cardboard that comes in the designer series paper and other 12" x 12" packs. She used the Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper to decorate one side of each coaster. The box was stamped using the Blooms & Wishes stamp set.
This fabulous heat embossed packet was made by Char Wijers. She used copper embossing on the leaf, which had been stamped (can't figure out what stamp) and embossed using the Woodgrain embossing folder first. The main panel that the leaf sits on is a stamp called A World of Thanks.
This very cute box (which only measures 4 cm x 4 cm x 4 cm) was made by Pauline Barnfather. It too features the Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper. The box "explodes" to reveal Blushing Bride embellishments that have been fixed to a piece of Whisper White Baker's Twine. It wasn't the easiest thing to take a photo of - it's far cuter in real life.
I think you will agree that these are fabulous swaps from a very talented group of ladies.
Lastly is the swap that I made. I wanted to do something non Christmas with the Sweet Home stamp set and Home Sweet Home Thinlits Dies (available individually and as a bundle). This is what I came up with.
I have a few more WOW swaps to share with a Christmas theme and I'll be posting photos of them very soon.
