The top photo is the swap cards from this month's Stampers 10 club. Not everyone was in attendance, but what nice cards we exchanged!! Great work girls!

Now these next photos are the club girls finished projects, we did the Striped Wipe Swipe technique that was highlighted on Splitcoaststampers this past week! Check it out for lots of stamping and scrapbooking techniques, gallery of artwork, forums and much, much more! I bet I check it once a day and then some.
Getting back to our project, it's a simple technique that gives LOTS of BANG! You need glossy white cardstock, basic black ink, baby wipes, and your choice of reinker colors. (my KISS - keep it simple silly, rule of thumb is limit yourself to 3 colors.) I wanted the gals to play with the new In Colors Stampin' Up! came out with this last catalog. Pacific Pointe, Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango, and Riding Hood Red. The only regular color used in our swipes was Summer Sun. (other In Color colors not used are Pink Pirouette and Baja Breeze - they were to light)
Once you do a few, it's very addicting and you want to make more. So if that happens to you, just make cards! Go with it! I went looking for more solid stamps to stamp in black and a great one for this time of the year is the cat from retired SU set Cool Cat. I even had some green cat eye jewels to embellish my Halloween cat. You'll find other stamps that will give the desired effect, just go play, you'll be very pleased!
Thanks girls! Great job on the cards, and we sure do have fun!
