Parade of Swaps Post 13

Prepare to be inspired with over 50 designs posted in the coming weeks covering a wide variety of images, colors, techniques, shapes and themes. These designs were swaps from fellow demonstrators at the annual Fall Fling that I coordinate. Everyone did a fabulous job with their designs! I’ll give the demo credit that created the card if I have that information. If you see your design, add a comment about your card!

Snowpeeps throwing snow designed by me, Shirley Merker. The snowflakes were die cut using the Seasonal Layers dies. The Epoxy Droplets looks like snow without getting the card wet;)

So, these photos were taken from Mom’s set of swaps. Not sure what was suppose to be where the remnants of the 2 dimensionals are. It’s a pretty card, non the less. I think either Norma Artman or Christine Davis designed this one.10 19 40-001

Cheryl Hill designed this unique fold that lays flat during delivery. Then, expands at the base for depth.

I hope you are inspired with over 50 designs shared in the past few weeks of swaps covering a wide variety of images, colors, techniques, shapes and themes. These designs were swaps from fellow demonstrators at the annual Fall Fling that I coordinate. Everyone did a fabulous job with their designs!

My Mom designed this Merry Christmoose card. She knew when she saw these products in the holiday catalog (page 27) that she wanted to add them to her collection because the images would make good guy cards.

There is a coordinating Moose Punch. The hat and scarf were fussy cut though using paper snips (item number 103579). The background was created using the Birch background stamp (item number 149256).10 19 45-001

The moose punch was so popular, it is no longer available. But the stamp set is available for purchase.

Moving into the winter season for the rest of the swap posts. Starting with a gift card holder design from Christine Davis. WOW, look at all those details!

It opens to reveal a gift card holder. A fun and unique way to deliver DIY shopping. It only uses a half sheet of 8.5×11 cardstock for the base so is easily mailed in a regular envelope.10 19 35-001

Check back soon for more inspiration. I’ll group about 3 design themes per post.
