My swap for my friends

I have just returned from meeting up with all the lovely ladies from the Stampin' Starlets team.  What a lovely day I have had making lots of different things. Isn't it amazing how we all have our own take on things.  Even though we are supplied with same card to follow, everyone puts their own slant on it! 
Anyway, I had so much fun and I will endeavour to share with you all of our contributions to the day.

I always like to try and do something different for my swap when I go to our team meetings.  So .........
Here they all are in their little boxes which I made using SU cardstock, the score board and the framelit dies
You can see the pressie inside the box through the shape cut using the framelit die.  This box was made using So Saffron colour cardstock from the Subtles collection.
 Raspberry Ripple cardstock from the In Colour cardstock from the Spring/Summer catalogue
Pacific Point cardstock from the Brights Collection above and Wild Washabi green from the Subtles collection

These pictures show the plaque in the box and again hanging.
To make the plaque I cut the mountboard/DSP & plain card using the framelit die on the Big shot.  I then covered the mountboard with plain card on the back and the DSP on the front. 
All the papers that I have used were from the Spring Summer Catalogue.  Tea for Two DSP, More Amore & Sunshine & Sprinkles.  Crochet trim was used as the hanging loop.  Butterflies were made using the Elegant Butterfly punch and the Papillon Potpourri stamp set.  To decorate I have used Antique brads, Rhinestones, pearls, Button sizzlets.   Phew!  Hadn't realised just how many different products I had used!!
It really was a labour of love to get these completed for my friends.  I hope they liked them as much as I enjoyed making them!

Thats it for today.  Hope you have a lovely Easter.

Take care
