Featured Swapper: Denise Hinton!

Since I was sitting down to browse Denise's gallery yesterday to find something of hers to CASE due to her being the GSG Featured Swapper this week, I decided to combine a card of hers I LOVE with yesterday's Ways to Use it Challenge (WT165). The only stipulation of the challenge was to use chipboard somewhere- No Problem! My good friend Nicky gave me a big supply of chipboard that she had extras of a few months ago and I've been thinking about this bird ever since. The set also included lots of neat frame thingys too!

Here is Denise's (aka Geekgirl415) card I chose and I decided right away I wanted to use my chipboard bird with it to mimic hers. My layout ended up almost upside down from hers which I didn't plan, but it just worked better that way once I did the stamping. I used her colors, general theme and her layout to an extent! Thanks Denise for the excellent inspiration!

Also, be sure to check out Denise's Blog, Geekgirl's Random Ramblings, she is so fun and very talented! Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Awesome card, Kristin! I love those colors and I still have way too much of that DSP. Thanks for the reminder to dig that out and use it up!! For some reason I couldn't get the link to Denise's card to work. Probably user error! *wink* I can't wait to play along later today.

  2. I fixed the link Britiney- thanks for letting me know!
