I was fortunate to participate in a January-April 2024 Mini Catalog & 2024 Sale-A-Bration Swap with a fabulous group of demos led by the lovely Lisa Hardin (The Stamping Zoo). I used the Inspirational Sketches stamp set focusing on the mushroom image with the Annual Catalog Tree Rings Hybrid embossing folder with Sweet Sorbet accents & Cork Rounds for my Mini Catalog swap. The Inspirational Sketches stamp set is a beautiful Distinktive stamp set that has a special texture that gives added depth and dimension in a single step, creating photo-realistic images.
Inspirational Sketches Mushroom Swap Card
Start with a Crumb Cake cardstock card base. Then cut a Sweet Sorbet cardstock panel layer and a Crumb Cake cardstock panel dry embossed with the Tree Rings Hybrid embossing folder panel layer wrapped with the Sweet Sorbet Bordered ribbon.
Die cut deckled Vellum cardstock & Very Vanilla cardstock circles with the Deckled Circle dies. Stamp the mushrooms from the Inspirational Sketches stamp set in Sweet Sorbet ink and add Wink of Stella to the under side of the mushrooms for sparkle. Add Cork Rounds & a Sweet Sorbet Bordered ribbon bow.
Stamp the mushrooms & sentiment from the Inspirational Sketches stamp set in Sweet Sorbet ink on a Very Vanilla cardstock inside panel. Add a dry embossed strip of Crumb Cake cardstock to the inside and back of the card to pull the theme through.

Flight & Airy DSP Hello Swap Card
I used my favorite Sale-A-Bration item – the Flight & Airy Designer Series Paper with the sentiment from the Sale-A-Bration Heartfelt Hellos stamp set for my 2024 Sale-A-Bration Swap. I layered the B-side of the Flight & Airy Designer Series Paper with a fussy cut bird from the Designer Series Paper’s A-side. I added a Wild Wheat Luster Specialty paper die cut leaf sprig from the Textured Florals dies, a dry embossed scalloped rectangle with the Sale-A-Bration Softly Sophisticated embossing folder, and add a few Rainbow Adhisive-Backed Dots for color.
Start with a Boho Blue cardstock card base. Layer a Wild Wheat cardstock panel and a Flight & Airy DSP panel. Die cut a Vellum cardstock scalloped rectangle with the Scalloped Contours dies and dry emboss it with the Softly Sophisticated embossing folder.
Stamp the sentiment from the Heartfelt Hellos on a Basic White cardstock deckled circle and die cut a Wild Wheat Luster Specialty paper leaf sprig with the Adhesive Sheets (so it attaches like a sticker) with the Textured Florals dies. Fussy cut a large Flight & Airy DSP bird and add Rainbow Adhesive-Backed Dots.
Add a Basic White cardstock inside panel to write your message. Stamp the sentiment from the Heartfelt Hellos stamp set, add a strip of Flight & Airy DSP, a fussy cut small Flight & Airy DSP bird and Wild Wheat Luster Specialty paper leaf sprigs (cut down to fit) to the inside and back of the card to pull the theme through.
