Fresh Freesia Monochromatic Swap Cards


  • Fresh Freesia Monochromatic Greeting cards
  • Final week to earn additional $25 in Stampin' Rewards
  • June Host Code
I mentioned last week that I was participating in card swaps with other Stampin' Up! Demonstrators.  This week I'll share some of the wonderful cards I received from these swaps.  Today, I have a few cards from the Monochromatic In Color swap.  These card feature Fresh Freesia, which Basic White and Basic Black accents.  I love this new In Color.  It works so well with florals, butterflies or dragonflies!  I'm so glad we have coordinating ribbons and accessories on top of cardstock, designer series paper, and inks in this color.  It makes cardmaking almost effortless when you know your papers, inks, and accessories will match.

The card below was created by a Demonstrator friend, Lorrie Skinner.  She used the Color & Contour Stamp Set for her floral images.  She created the Fresh Freesia background using the Brick 'N Mortar Embossing Folder.  The curved section was created using the Inspiring Canopy Dies.  The basecard is Thick Basic White, and then a layer of Basic white specked with Fresh Freesia dots.  The Color and Contour Dies were used to die cut the stamped and colored flowers.  The flowers were colored with Fresh Freesia Blends.  Three Rhinestones adorn the upper left corner.  I love the way the bricks show through the curved area.

This next card, below, uses the Flowers of Friendship Stamp Set.  This set is part of a bundle that includes a punch for more flowers and leaves. Again, the main colors used on this card are Fresh Freesia Cardstock and 2021-2023 6" X 6" In Color Designer Series Papers.  The sentiment uses the Double Oval Punch and Highland Heather ink for the stamped flowers and Fresh Freesia ink for the sentiment.  The beautiful 3/8" Open Weave Ribbon and bow adds a soft touch, as does the butterfly die cut using the Brilliant Wings Dies.  Unfortunately, there was no name on this beautiful card..  If this is your card, thank you for the beautiful use of Fresh Freesia.

This final card, below, was a card I created for this swap, and posted previously.    I also used Fresh Freesia Cardstock as my Basecard along with 2021-2023 6" X 6" In Color Designer Series Paper, and Basic White Cardstock.  I used the Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set and the coordinating Dragonflies Punch to create the images on this card.  I added a sentiment using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and a Pastel Pearls as an accent.  The dragonflies were stamped on 2021-2023 In Color Shimmer Vellum with Highland Heather Ink.   You can find a more detailed explanation for creating this card in this earlier post.
