Each month at the Pebble Creek Posse meeting we hold a Stamp Set Card swap.  The stamp set chosen for October was:  Season of Joy.

If you click on the photo you will see the creator of each.

Note:  some are missing the creators…I need to get sorted out with who did what since not all were marked.

Viola Wine Topper

This was what I made for my 3 dimensional swap for the Stampin’ Up convention in July 2007. Since this is a scan you’ll have to use your imagination on how it looks on a wine bottle. I did it as part of my gifties class last week. I think it would be really a fun way to present a wine bottle as a hostess gift when you are invited out to dinner. If you’d like to see the details of what I used to make this click on the photo and then next page will have them.

I got the idea of a paper wine topper from a magazine. I immediately thought of the little chef in the Viola Stamp Set as the perfect way to convert the topper pattern into something stamped.

Today when I was checking out the Stampin’ Up! demo web site I saw a very similar version of my wine topper on the Showcase Gallery. I wonder if the person who did it got the idea from my swap. I’d like to think so since I’ve gotten so many good ideas from the people I swapped with.

Merry & BrightEach month my stampin’ buddies and I have a Pebble Creek Posse meeting. The meeting is for my Stampin’ Up! downline and whoever else would like to attend who may be interested in joining Stampin’ Up! as a demonstrator. For the last several months we have been picking out a specific stamp set and everyone makes a card and then we swap! It is great fun. Here is my card for the swap.

I’ll post what everyone else does to my blog over the next few days. I totally CASE’d (Copy and Share/Steal Everything) from someone. Unfortunately I didn’t keep track so if this is your card that you are seeing on my blog, please let me know and I’ll give appropriate credit. I really loved the design. If you click on the picture and then in the next window click on the picture again, you’ll see the recipe.

Update:  Mystery is solved.  This is too funny.  I got this from a Stampin’ Up demo in Texas, Linda McClain who had it posted on her blog as part of a group of cards from her LoneStar Stampers group, Jane Schenck is the creator of the card.  Then I used it in my Pebble Creek Posse Swap.  Finally one of my other online buddies from California, saw it in my newsletter to my customers and made a couple changes and posted it on her web site. My friend Alyce says there was one original card…all others have been CASEd from it…I am beginning to believe that.

Just goes to show you, that you don’t have to be creative to produce some beautiful cards and stamped projects with so many Stampin’ Up! demonstrators willing to share.  Gotta love it!
