I can finally share the card I made for a swap since everyone who participated should have received their cards by now.
I joined a small group swap and chose the Dies category. I needed to make 6 cards using dies. Here is what I came up wtih.
I used colors that remind me of the fall. The swirls were cut in Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Tangerine Tango from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits. I used Early Espresso embossed with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder as my 1st layer. The leaves were cut from the Botanical Builders framelits in Old Olive & Early Artichoke. Hope was cut in Cajun Craze from the Sunshine Thinlits.
I used the Copper Floss, Silver & Gold Sequins trim and a Gold Paper for the Butterfly from the Sunshine thinlits. To add some texture to the card.
No stamping at all on this card.
I am so happy with the card. That I made 2 for me along with the 6 I made for the swap.
Ever make a card that just makes you happy
Well that's this card for me
Love Love Love
Hope you like it as much as I do!
These were the "Die-lovers" cards I received back from the swap. Too bad not everyone that signed up sent or cards were received on time.
Back in March, I blogged about bringing birthdays back. I offered a challenge to anyone who commented or emailed me that I would send you a birthday card that you could use. You can read the original #imbringingbirthdaysback post here.
The original #imbringingbirthdaysback was started by Shannon West and a stamp was designed. Love it!!! You can read about Shannon West's challenge here.
So my challenge was: I challenge you to mail birthday cards out to those that you know the dates on. AND...comment on my blog with the #imbringingbirthdaysback and I will mail you a birthday card, handmade from me.
After commenting, I will need to ask that you email me your full name and address so I can mail you the card. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
I received a wonderful response via email, which is great!!!! I know most won't want any personal information on a website. Soo with that said, I am going to offer this challenge again and I am going to offer this challenge from now until December 31st. With the exception, I am going to send you 2 birthday cards, (a traditional style birthday card and a non-traditional (may be seasonal or holiday themed)).
For more information on the #imbringingbirthdaysback stamp, you can click on the image below.
There's no purchase necessary and no soliciting! You will receive the cards from me in approx 7-10 business days, depending on the response and whether I need to create more cards.
I really you will except this challenge, I look forward to hearing from you all again!!!
