Fun idea to do a designer swap. Both of you have talents! I am now introduced to AMuse which I had never seen before. The sushi set is on my list of "must haves" but winning the cute bicycle would be a treat too.

Kate Cecil

I enjoy both of these artists and love the idea - Designers swapping amonst themselves - FANTASTIC!! THanks for sharing your creativity with us!


What happens when two designers swap stamps? CREATIVITY!!! What wonderful cards and ideas! Thank you Lisa for sharing!


Okay the designer swap was genius! Lisa, nice work with the A Muse stamps! Great way to introduce people to other products, too :) Great... now I may have discovered something else to get addicted to... ;)

Oh yeah, and I've been saving my sushi grass, too!!! I never thought to use it on a card, but I'm such a hoarder, I couldn't bear to throw it away! Now I know just what to do with it!!!


WOW - what a great stamp!

Dawn Phelps

How fun! Now I think I have to get the sushi set and I don't even like sushi :eyeroll:

WOW, so creative! I loved the fans for the flowers and butterflies, what at a fun idea! Going to have try some of these.


The fan into a butterfly is genius!

Okay, now I'm off to see what Julie did with some Hero Arts stamps.


What a wonderful array of lovely happy cards - well done :)

Sandie McCarthy-Roberts

Amazing!!! Creativity is spilling out of her head and heart. Beautiful work. thanks so much for sharing.


Julie & Lisa -

What a wonderful Friday treat! I can't wait to check out Lisa's blog. Amazing things here and what awaits there? Probably just stunning stuff!



Fantastic! Love Lisa's creative, out-of-the-box thinking with all the stamps. But to see ice cream scoops out of that border is AMAZING! Thanks for the peek into her imaginative brain :)

Heather R.

WOW! Terrific cards!!!!


I love the fans used as flowers and butterflies. I love how those kinds of stamps can be used in different ways! I've never really checked out the Amuse stamps...I think I'm going to have to do some websurfing now...



what a great idea to 'blog swap'!!! I love all the cards, especially the 'wheely girl'.


It's not fair that someone can come up with such amazing alternative ideas for stamps! I so wish I could think out-of-the-box like that!

Kim Raymundo

I love all the creative way these stamps are used. My favorites are the ones used with the "Sushi" set. Now I REALLY have to get this set! Hugs, Kim :o)


Wow, Lisa you did a fantastic job. I am thinking about making a sushi card too. I couln't find a stamp to make it works. I love sushi too. And the fans, that's incredible. Love them all. Thank you for sharing with us.

Sherri Long

Great cards! Bright! Cheerful. Like the exchange idea lots!


Such cool card ideas!! I love what you did with the fan stamp - turning it into a flower and butterfly. And stamping your images in brown ink instead of black - such a simple idea but it really changes the softness of the images.

Pamela Fredrickson

Lisa's cards are very inspiring! There are too many to choose from to name a favorite.


Oh my goodness. These cards are so stinkin' cute. I just love the different ways she the fans. All I can say is WOW!


This is a happy day for me to see Lisa and Julie switch and to design such lovely and creative cards. It puts a smile on my face =)looking at all the cards.


Wow. My brain is filling with ideas after seeing all of this lovely inspiration!


Those cards are terrific! They really made my day, and made me want to run up to my stamp room and start thinking "outside the box." Thanks for sharing them with us. :)


I LOVE the fact that my two favorite companies are promoting each other's designers, it truly shows a level of comraderie and self-assuredness among the companies and the designers that isn't often seen between "competitors".

Like everyone, I LOVE what Lisa has done with those fans - y'all are too clever for your own good!


It's such a treat getting to see new designs and inspirations! Thank you for agreeing to do the Designer Swap with Hero Arts! :)


I have never heard of A Muse Stamps before now. I am so excited to explore your site!

And Lisa, my goodness . . . you are amazing!!! Great Job!!

Rebecca Attwood

Great job Lisa- those cards are adorable! Love the "On-a-roll" spinner!!!


All of the cards are so great! I especially love the fan butterflys...genius! :)

Lee Anne

All of the cards are fantastic! My favorite is the one with the ice cream scoops. How creative is that!!!! Oh, I forgot about the fans...too cute!


I love getting inspiration here. Great cards!

sarah c. (WAstamper on SCS)

SHUT UP!! These cards are fantastic. OK, I must be the last person on the planet who doesn't like sushi, so I managed to talk myself out of "needing" that set. Ummmm, guess it's going to the top of my list now.:) Love, love, love all the ways the Fancy Borders were used too(again, another set I don't have!) And what a great way to use the Coffee Break steam. Genius!


Beautiful cards!


WOW, Lisa, I love your creative, beautiful cards! I especially love your use of colored pencils on the images ~ So soft and pretty! This "Designer Swap" is so fun ~ I'm off to check out what Julie did with the Hero Arts stamps! Thanks for the fun!!

Rachel D

The cards are great!! Love all the little details! Thanks!

Samantha P.

These are all so great! I L-O-V-E the use of the sushi grass! Recycling and creating a cute card at the same time? You girls rock! 8^)


Too too cute and creative! I love it when stamps are used with "outside the box" thinking!

paola norman

I love everything here wonderful! Those fan flowers and fan butterflies were ingenious! Love the creativity!
