I created this card for a recent card swap that I participated in and I really like how it turned out.

I was inspired by the rich colors of Autumn, I love when the weather turns a bit cooler and the trees start to show all their beautiful colors.

Some of my favorite elements of this card…

  • the Wood-Grain and Gingham Checkered pattern paper from the Gather Together Designer Series Paper pack
  • I used the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for added interest, I love how it gives the Champagne Foil Paper a little something EXTRA!
  • and the Crumb Cake Ribbon with Satin Edge, it is super soft and very easy to work with!

The front of the card is filled with textures and rich warm autumn colors!

But check out the inside…I adore the large maple leaf!

Inside Sentiment: May this season bring you smiles and love that will last all year long

Here is a closer look at the how the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Folder gives the Champagne Foil added interest!

Halloween Swap Cards

Halloween Swap Cards…no tricks just treats!

Do you remember trading baseball cards as a kid?

My brothers traded baseball cards but I traded Charlie’s Angels cards and Garbage Pail Kids cards.

And yes, it was the original Charlie’s Angels – Farrah Fawcett, Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith.

What does that have to do with Swap Cards?

I see Card Swaps as being similar to trading baseball cards.

I love everything about Card Swaps…

  • making the cards
  • sending them off to the coordinator
  • but mostly, getting the package back in the mail!

I recently participated in a Holiday Catalog Swap featuring Halloween and Fall themed cards. As always, the cards I received were FABULOUS! I will be sharing them over the next several weeks. Ready to see some cards?

Swap Card-Annual Catalog

A Swap Card is a great way to exchange ideas & pretty cards with others…it is one of my favorite things about being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator along with …

  • the 20-25% discount on products
  • friendships with other demonstrators and customers
  • sneak peeks at upcoming products
  • and an opportunity to be a part of the Stampin’ Up! family!

I participated in a Card Swap way back in June but never shared the cards I received.

So…I decided it was better to share them late than never share them at all.

The variety is amazing, I hope you enjoy them.
