I recently participated in two card swaps. One swap was made up of 40 people and we had to have 2 sets of 39 cards each in that swap. And the other was made up of 16 people…2 sets of 15 each. 108 cards total!
These were the 4 sets of cards I contributed to those swaps. I've shared each of these already here in my blog. Check them out! This first bundle of cards are the wreath cards I shared yesterday.
This second bundle contains those origami twist fold cards I shared on September 7th. (Thia post includes a how-to video.)
This z-fold card was featured in my August 24th post.
And these green ones were shared on September 2nd. (My favorite!)
It was a lot of work putting these together. But it was worth it, because I got a ton of fabulous cards in return. (Thankfully I had my friend, Vicki Spicer and my hubby, Tim to assist me one day!) Here are just a few of the cards I got back.
This first one was made by Becky Edson. She really did a great job showing off the Year of Cheer suite of products.
I adored this card by Juliann Knudsen. I even CASED it to create a couple scrapbook pages that I'll be sharing soon. This just proves that you can make the flowers in that Painted Harvest stamp set any color you wish.
This center step fun fold card by Carol Rosengren is so perfect in black & white. The images and dies from this Hearts Come Home bundle are so amazing that you honestly don't need anything else.
This fun Halloween card was made by Sue Lehrer.
This next swap was designed by Shari Caspers. I love that color combination! And if you own the Big Shot for die-cutting and embossing, these Layering Ovals Dies and the Stitched Shapes Framelits are must-haves!
There were so many other great cards, but hopefully you gained some inspiration from the few swaps I shared.
These last two cards were not part of the swap, but my friend Cheryl Lee gave them to me recently and I had to show them off! Aren't they amazing!? For this diorama card, she used the Carols of Christmas bundle and the Layering Ovals Dies.
I'm in love with all these cards, and I'm so glad you got a chance to see them! Enjoy your weekend!
I just ordered my last round of shares. But I had someone cancel unexpectedly. So now I have two paper shares up for grabs again.
