Holiday One-for-One Swaps: Day Three

All good things must come to an end.  I’ve so enjoyed sharing the Holiday One-for-One Swaps with you this past couple of weeks, but they all wrap up today.  I’ve really enjoyed the projects that have passed through my mailbox on their way to someone else’s – and I’m excited that I get to share them with you.  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).

The collection of cards I’ll be sharing might not all have current Stampin’ Up! products (although that was requested), but every card gives good ideas for color combinations, layouts, techniques.  Without any further ado, here is the third (and final) batch of your beautiful cards:

  13. Great cards again this time Brian. I agree with you that there is an amazing amount of creativity out there. Meredith Liebman’s Hanukkah card is so simply beautiful. With the blocks of color lightly stamped under an elegant menorah she has created a very tasteful and elegant keepsake.

  14. Judging by the beauty and talent on display today and in past swap posts, I’ve got a looong way to go! Thank you to Brian and all the stampers that shared their work for the inspiration:) Happy Holidays!

  15. Brian, I can’t say thank you enough for sharing these beautiful cards. I have been so inspired by the creativity of these talented crafters.

  16. Thank you, Liz, for the beautiful cardinal card you created! As soon as I opened it, I set it out so I could enjoy it everyday & so others could also admire it! We have several bird feeders in our yard and are so happy when cardinals stop by — so this was the perfect card 🙂 Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!

    • I’m glad you are enjoying it. I loved making it. Thank you so much for yours. I love the way you have the little star suspended with twine. The whole card is very festive. Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas too!

  17. This was such a wonderful “gift” to be involved with ~ thank you Brian for being such a gracious host and facilitator! I absolutely loved the card I received from Sharon Jones! Blue and silver are my favorite Christmas colors and the added bling was joyful. I hope you saw my reply to your comments from the first group of cards posted – I’ve already begun CASe-ing your design for a birthday card. Happy Holidays everyone!

  18. All of the cards you have posted are just wonderful. Thank you for doing this for all of us Brian. Merry Christmas to you and your family. 🙂

  19. @kim nolden….a blast from the past…thanks for making this card, it is a favorite of mine!!!
    Brian, thanks for sharing!! Every one of the shares are gorgeous!!!!!

  20. I received Traci’s cute snow jar card. I love all of her little details – particularly the merry banner and the sequins. Several of the sequins have parted ways with the card, and I have enjoyed finding them on my work table, on the floor….. 🙂 It’s a happy reminder of the beautiful card I received and of this fun swap. So glad I (and all of the other talented stampers) made the effort to participate!

    • Oh no, lost sequins! I notice in the photo one of the bows is missing from the banner too. Better rethink my adhesive choices. Enjoy!

  21. All the cards are great. Must send good thoughts to my friend Laura L. Didn’t get to see in person but love the mustache and big/small dots. Great job my friend.

  22. Awesome cards! I have Gayle’s card hanging on my tree in my stamp room 🙂 Thanks Gayle!

  23. Lisa, your peacock is colored to perfection. Please share the details in making this beautiful stunning card.

  24. Lots of wonderful creations here again, Brian. Thank you so much for hosting this great swap. It was a lot of fun…. And by the way, congratulations on your promotion to Senior Manager! Whoo hoot! Totally deserved and not surprising, one little bit! 🙂

  25. All of the cards here are amazing! I was lucky enough to recieve the card from Carrie – it’s even more beautiful in person! Thank you Brian for organizing a great swap!

  26. I agree with everyone that this has been a fun and amazing challenge. So many fantastic ideas. Thanks Brian for all the work you did to organize this swap. This was my first time participating. I am definitely looking forward to another. Have a wonderful holiday.

  27. I received Laura’s card and love it! My grandson turns 19 on Dec. 24 and what a perfect card for him!! Thanks Laura! And thank you, Brian, for sharing them with us. I love all the cards and am awed and amazed at all the creative people out there. Great to see what everyone else comes up with. Thanks again.

  28. what stamp was used for Mary Nolt’s card

    • Dominique, Thanks for the question. Mary used a retired stamp set called Seasonal Sayings. Lots of great sentiments and fonts in that set! 🙂
