Christmas Swaps

These are some of the swaps I have been receiving lately. I am grouping them by category for easy posting and reference. All these cards can be easily mass produced. This 1st card is using the "Spotlight Technique". This card was made from an open house event - creator unknown (sorry about that). Of course, I love the colors!

Here's another great card from the open house event (creator unknown): The reverse side of Designer Paper used cleverly for contrast on this card. The pointseta, popped up with a dimensional, has (3) Gold brads in the center.

This card was from a shoebox event: (Creator unknown). The ornaments are not secured. The "string" is knotted through the top of the ornament and is loose.

This is another card made at an open house event. I love how the Scallop Oval punch fits inside the Wide Oval Punch (Designer Paper), then popped up with dimensionals. The great ribbon (available in the Holiday Mini) works well with this card.

This card )Creator Unknown) is the unique: uses the "Sponging technique" for the background and swirl pattern (template for the swirl pattern made from the Big Shot Sizzix. Shimmer paint (from the Holiday Mini) is used along the top of the "hill". 2 Way Glue pen is used to apply the Dazzling Diamonds glitter. A Gold brad for the Reindeer's neck.

Lyn made this swap card: The Reindeer makes an appearance again. This time the Dots are hand made using the white gel pen. LOVE LOVE LOVE that Red dotted ribbon (which is available in the Holiday Mini).

This card (from an Open House event) showcases the new Petals-a Plenty Impressions folder. Also the Merry Die tag has an overlay of acetate which is sanded to reveal the words. I had a "heavy hand" in my sanding. And there's that great ribbon again along with elastic gold cord which is only available in the Holiday Mini.

This swap card (Creator Unknown) is using White Glossy paper, in color Rich Razzleberry Ribbon and Card Stock along with Soft Suede for the "wall".

Thank you for visiting today...............thank you to all the creators who made these wonderful cards.
