I’d sworn off swapping.

At least I thought I had, anyway.   I really don’t do classes or workshops or anything much anymore, so I don’t have much need for bajillions of stamped samples each new catalog and new mini-catalog. But then came Jami’s swap.  I caved.  A couple of full cards in a small quantity? I could certainly do that!

Now that swaps have been returned, I can share what I created for the two small rounds I participated in.  Thank you for a wonderful swap, Jami!  If you’d like to see what the other swappers created, click here.

Here’s the first one, a 4 1/4″ square card using the new Heart Flutters set.


Here’s the second (and last) one, a regular sized, top folding card using the Confetti Scrappin’ Kit and Priceless.

Heart Flutters Card

Stamps: Heart Flutters

Ink: Real Red Craft & Classic, Creamy Caramel Classic

Cardstock: Real Red, Chocolate Chip, Kraft, Naturals Ivory

Accessories: Pretties Kit, Chocolate Taffeta, Red Gingham, Pewter Hodpodge Hardware, tons of glue dots

Some of these were stitched . . . . I hadn’t yet figured out *not* to thread the bobbin ribbon through the needle, so I had tons of jammed threads, and finally just sewed with no thread!  And dang, I should have adhered the hardware and not just left it hanging. It looks wonky here!

Priceless Confetti Card

Stamps: Priceless, So Swirly jumbo wheel

Ink: Purely Pomegranate, Taken with Teal

Cardstock: Taken With Teal, Old Olive, Purely Pomegranate Textured & Striped from kit

Accessories: Wide Olive Grosgrain, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Stampin’ Dimensionals
