The One And Only Heidi Swapp!!




Heidi Swapp is a creative genius when it comes to scrapbooking! She has been an inspiration to many of us, teaching us new ways to spice up our scrapbook pages and cards. Her style is young, girly and is simply a breath of fresh air. She continues to bring us new innovative products and demonstrates fun teqniques to try, always leaving us wanting more. It is no wonder she has become such a popular name in the scrapbooking industry.

I was browsing on SplitCoast Stampers, a popular scrapbooking website I am sure most of you are familiar with, and found some fabulous cards that I had to share with you all!! I was blown away with the creativity I saw and I couldn't wait to post the cards for all of you to see.



I wanted to blog about one of my favorite stamps, the Heidi Swapp clear Chandelier. The card above was one of the first I found and was designed by Julie Ranae. She used VersaMagic and Ranger Archival Jet Black ink to stamp the images and finished by using accessories from Martha Stewart and paper by Bazzill. This card is simply stunning! It caught my eye right away and I'm so glad that she is allowing us to share it with all of you. :)

You can see more of Julie's work in her blog at http://juliesopenwindow.blogspot.com.



The second card was designed by Susan. Susan says "I used black craft ink and clear embossing powder to give the chandelier a shiny effect. Added some liquid pearls for the candle lights and then some bling." She was going for a simple yet elegant card and I think she definitely achieved it!!

The last card shown above was designed by Rachel Hope. HEEELLLO CREATIVITY! I love how she turned the elegant chandelier into a spooky Halloween card!! How cute are the little spiders hanging from the light?!

Another fun Heidi Swapp product are her playing cards. Here is what Heidi Swapp says she likes to do with the cards:

"When I hit a creative 'rut', I need a diversion. Something that totally redirects my thoughts, takes away all expectations, and just allows me to PLAY! Here is what I do...

1. Think of a message, a quote - something you wish to remember; something that inspires you.
2. Pull out a variety of items from your 'stash'...stuff you love. Colors that move you at that very moment!
3. Try something NEW! Allow yourself to go out of your comfort zone!" - Heidi Swapp
