Betsy - Heidi Swapp Cards

Betsy here this morning to participate in CENTRE STAGE.

Heidi Swapp is the guest , for the month of November, on Centre Stage, at Artfull Crafts and what a privilege  it is to have her on board. She does have some gorgeous collections, but reviewing her blog I find that she doesn't do many cards. She appears to do a lot of albums, mini books etc which are really lovely, but being me and only a card maker, I have branched out. Do hope she doesn't mind!

Here are four that I have played with - the collection being Mixed Company.

There are so many bits and pieces that come with this range and I had fun putting it all together. The four cards are 5 1/4" square, as I find them much easier to work with, especially when there are lots to attach!!

With the collection comes a packet of Ephemera, which on first glance looks pure white. By spraying them with Heidi Swapp's Colour Shine, they really come to life. The butterflies would be one, also the word tag - it comes up gorgeous! I coloured the frame in the same way, again it was in a pack with the collection.

How could one do a card session without lace, bling, flowers etc?! Yes, I did have to add at least one!!

I have used the Colour Shine quite extensively on this card, firstly spraying the background paper, then most of the embellishments. Tim Holtz's Picture Wheel die was used to add another interest.

That's it from me today ladies, do hope you have enjoyed the beginning of the Heidi Swapp, Centre Stage.
There, no doubt, will be lots more to follow from our very talented team.

The Theme of the Month is Colour Fun - as long as you have four different colours on your project, you're in! There is also the sketch provided by Heidi Swapp which looks like it could be quite fun. Do wish I was a scrapbooker, at times! There are quite a collection of products to be won this month, thanks again to Heidi Swapp.

Happy crafting everyone, God bless,
