Susan Johnson

How much fun! I would love to trade stamps with someone to see what we each come up with. You gal's are amazing!


I really enjoyed the out of the box use of the fans to create the flower and butterfly. As always love the crispness of amuse designs.

Cindy Redding

I love the way you used all the different borders. I've got to check my stamp stash and see what I can come up with!


These are some great ideas!! That fan for the butterfly is amazing!! Can't wait to try it with my own stamps.


SUCH clever ideas from such supah clever girls! Thanks for "swapping it up" for us! :) Fingers crossed...


Super great creativity. You guys rock!


awesome cards lisa--i must save my sushi grass next time i bring it home for dinner! i've followed your work for a while after clicking on a link in julie's sidebar way back--what a fun swap!


These cards couldn't be any cuter! I am a new stamper and really love looking at all of the different teechniques you ladies use on cards. :)

Brenda T

both designers did a FANTASTIC job with their swaps. Thanks for sharing!!

Dana Klinkner

What a FUN idea to do this designer swap - loved it! The ideas you both came up with were amazing! I'm a big Amuse fan and I loved all the new ideas....thanks! :)


How fun--and I would love to win! thanks for the great inspriration--the swap was a great idea!

Susan Engel

What a great idea these stamping swaps are. I hope to see more in the future as they are a popular hit amongst the stampers. Its nice to learn a little about each artist and meet them and find out about them and what they like to do ect. A fun idea I'd like to see again soon! Cheers, Susan

Sue Bone

What a great set of cards. I've never tried sushi. Perhaps I should to get some sushi grass ;)

Monika  in VA, USA

Lisa did a fabulous job & I totally enjoyed both blogs! Thanks for sharing your inspiring works of art with us! And those little twinkle stickers add such a great touch!

Theresa Romani

I love "out-of-the-box" ideas! The flower and butterfly are just great. Love the coloring job.



What a fantastic idea, a designer switch! These cards are FANTASTIC! And I love the sushi grass. I might have to steal that idea!


Talk about innovative! :) It was so nice to see how versatile so many of these stamps are, even if novices like me only see one image when we look at them! :) This swap was such a great idea!!!!


I adore the wheely girl going up the hill --- simply adorable but leaves me breathless, pant pant pant.


Is a very creative use for stamps, love it all! and clever idea both Muse and Hero stamps in a swap!!!

Brenda H.

Wow, what a great idea...love the swap! Awesome cards Lisa! Thanks for this chance to win!
~Brenda H.


These are unbelievable. You make me want to buy all of them just so I can cardlift the designs. Would love to win one or two of them.


Oh my goodness! Looking at both blogs was so much fun. I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED all the ideas! The use of the fan to make a flower and butterfly, wow! Please do this type of swap again.

Lisa Foust

Wow - what a great idea to swap stamps! Great cards!

Could these cards be any cuter? I especially love the ones with the fan stamps!


What a great idea. You both are so very talented. Thanks for some new ideas.

Stephanie Z

I liked all your cards - Pretty neat :)


The way my 5-year old DD says "parten (pardon) me" is the last thing that made me smile...I smile a lot around my girls (and their daddy) so I hope that's how they remember me in years to come! Thanks for sharing this designer switcheroo, it made me smile as well...

L Eterno

Great cards.


Oh man! Those were some brilliant ideas! I saw Julies Hero Arts creations and those were just as great!! Hope you guys do this again sometime!

Wow, Julie! Lisa's cards are so darlin'! I'm blown away by her genius. She needs to teach us how to see our stamp images as totally something else. Thanks for doin' the swap! Its wonderful!!
