One stamp set demonstrators could purchase early last month was Painter's Palette. I have a theory: Stampin' Up! gives us stamp sets to purchase early that they don't think will be immediate best sellers. They sure know what they're doing. Painter's Palette was DEFINITELY one of those stamp sets. Several of us took one look at it and grumbled when we saw it on our pre-order list. Or maybe I just assume that everyone had the same reaction as I did. I feel the same about the Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack. Now, you may be thinking - but I love both of those! And, that's the beauty of it! There's something in the catalog for everyone.
Today I'm sharing with you some of my favorites that use some of those products. I instantly fell in love with the first card (pictured above). It was created by Glenda Travelstead. I absolutely love her. She reminds me of Lucille Ball. Maybe I'm the only one who thinks that. But, when she stamps on stage, she'll have us all ROLLING on the floor laughing. Almost literally. She (and the creators of all of today's cards) participated in the Leader's Swap I organized last month. I've been sprinkling their swap cards into my posts for the last couple of weeks. ANYWAY, Glenda made a couple of different cards for the swap but this one was my favorite. She tells me that she can't take credit for the design. Apparently someone swapped a similar card with her at OnStage. I didn't see the original. But, Glenda used the 5 new in colors to make this card - as well as Painter's Palette. And I LOVE the result!
This next card was created by Terri Meehan. I think I shared another of her cards earlier in the week. But her card caught my eye - maybe it was all of the white because that's my style. But, I also loved how she added the sentiment from Endless Thanks as well! She embellished with some of the Playful Palette Washi Tape and rhinestones. Is this stamp set growing on you yet? See how that happens?
The third and final card for this morning (and I say this morning because there's a blog hop this afternoon) was created by Karie Beglau. There were a few things that stood out to me about her card. First, she took the time to stamp and cut out the frame and pop it up making it look more realistic. And, I loved that she used the Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack to make a piece of art! Now, I actually like that DSP when it's used like that!
