SAB Swap

I finally got my SAB preorders, so I got to make my swap this weekend. I am very happy with this card, and am proud to say I came up with the color combo all on my own! (I am very dependent on the Color Coach.... to a ridiculous degree!)

I made 16 of these for a swap, and I may keep this design as one of the cards for my upcoming SAB sampler class.... but maybe change out the sentiment to something more general like Thank You or Thinking of You.

I am looking forward to receiving my full heart punch soon! Cutting out 16 of these hearts was WAY too much work for me. UGH. This card would also be easier, and probably look better, if I had a Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the hearts, but I don't have one, so I eyeballed it. Oh well. Aren't minor flaws what make homemade cards so endearing? :)

Stamp Set: Polka Dot Punches
Cardstock: Riding Hood Red, Regal Rose, Whisper White
DSP: Delicate Dots
Stamp Pads (Classic): Regal Rose, Riding Hood Red
Accessories/Tools: Scallop Edge Punch, Heart to Heart Punch, Word Window Punch, White Taffeta ribbon, dimensional

I can't wait to place a big fat order on Feb. 1 so I can get the other SAB sets. The more I see of them, the more I like them. I'm sure I'll fall even more in love with them when I get my swap back next week. :)


  1. What a great swap card! I love the row of hearts and the scalloped edges!

  2. What a cute card - I love the heart from the SAB set.

  3. Very cute! You did a great job with the colors!!


  4. Very cute card. I just did a card workshop where we used the Always stamp set and I ended up cutting out a ton of hearts. The full heart punch is going to be so great once we get it in our hands, huh? :)

  5. Great job on the card and I love the colors! :)

  6. Pretty card! I wasn't sure I really loved this set, but your card is making me reconsider.



Imagine a beep. Then leave me a message! I love hearing from you, thanks!
