SCS Card Swap-Whipper Snapper & Penny Black Stamps

I received my cards from the hostess of this Whipper Snapper & Penny Black Stamps swap the other day. I finally got the pictures taken.

I signed up for one Penny Black spot so I got 5 cards back. This first one was made by Gay. It is all sparkly. I love it! Loretta. So cute.

This is a square easel card made by Jean. Another cute card.

Leslie's hedgehog. I have this stamp. I love the color scheme she used.

Carol. Sweet Sheltie being led by a hedgehog. The whole image was cut out and popped up.

I signed up for 2 spots of the Whipper Snapper stamps so I got back 10 cards. This first one is by Carol. The turtles are adorable.

Here's the inside of the card.

Laurie. The sweetest scarecrow I've ever seen. :) It's a larger card so she included an envelope.

Lisa. She left some space for a sentiment. So cute!

Loretta. I got 2 Whipper Snapper cards and 1 Penny Black card from her. The image is completely cut out. Love the goggly eyes! :)

This is the other Whipper Snapper one from Loretta. The head of the cow was cut out and popped up. This is a seriously cute card...makes me smile. :)

Terry. I absolutely adore this card. Need to figure out how she made the flower.

Evelyn. She cut the image out and added a bbq fork brad. So cute!

Laura. Another adorable card.

Heather. Love the colors she used and the nesties she used to cut the layers.

Adelle. Another adorable card. That little pup is the cutest thing.

Another great swap.

I looove the detail on all of the cards . . . so much work. I think my favorite is the cow cause it reminds me of Leslie. She liked cows.

Thanks, Jalna! The cow is my favorite too. Somewhere I read that card making has become more decorating the card rather than the stamping. I don't think that is the case with these cards. There is a lot of detail in the stamping with just a tiny bit of decorating the card. I think some stampers go overboard with all the embellishments they use on their cards.
