Cool Treats Swap Shares

Cool TreatsHi Everyone! Today I thought I'd share a few SWAP cards I received from other demonstrators. Unfortunately, the swap above did not have a name included. Put I love the play of using Very Vanilla Cardstock as a base. It works even though Whisper White is the color in the Designer Paper.

DSCN6241This card was designed by Monica Giberti. Love how this card showcases the cone swirl stamp that when used, makes the cone look like a tasty treat! A dash of Clear Wink of Stella adds some sparkle!

 And holy schma oly! This card is layered up as high as the ice cream cone on top! Stacey Lane is the designer and I love the layers!

This weekend I will have a One-Sheet Wonder made with this suite! It will be a FREE online class with any January order.
