DAY SEVEN: Spring 2016 One-for-One Swaps

DAY SEVENCan you believe the train is still moving on these amazing One-for-One Swaps?  I never dreamed there’s be so many, and I certainly can’t share all of them at once.  Are you enjoying the parade of card?

I’m so happy to be showcasing the wonderful cards I received in April for my Spring One-for-One Swap.  Each one is filled with beautiful inspiration, and I know you’re going to love these projects.  If you have missed any of the previous days of these swaps, be sure to check them out here:

I love these swaps because they showcase beautiful projects from cardmakers at ALL SKILL LEVELS – some are brand new to the craft, and others have been creating for years.  Please look them over, admire their beauty and then let the creators know how beautiful their cards are (I already know you’ll be kind with your comments, but I am going to request it, anyway).

If you participated in the swap and don’t see the card you received here, please wait to comment on the card when it debuts here.  That way, the creator of that card will be sure to see your comments.

The collection of cards might not all have current Stampin’ Up! products, but every card gives good ideas for color combinations, layouts, techniques.  They are sure to inspire you.  Without any further ado, here is the next batch of your beautiful cards:

  13. So much has been said about all the beautiful cards posted here, but I want to add another thanks to you, Brian, for hosting this swap. Knowing what it takes to upload my own photos to Facebook, I can’t imagine how much time you spend uploading our cards and making them look good.

Thanks for all you do for us fellow crafters: the inspiration, the humor, the encouragement, the leadership.
