Day Three: Spring One-for-One Card Swap

Day Three of my Spring One-for-One Card Swap is all about my InKing Royalty Group.  Since so many of my Royals participated in the swap, I thought it would be fun to give them their very own post to showcase their beautiful cards.

In a series of several posts, I am sharing cards from my Spring One-for-One Swap.  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.

If you missed the first One-for-One Swap posts, you can see them here:

The collection of cards I’ll be sharing today might not all have current Stampin’ Up! products, but every card gives good ideas for color combinations, layouts, techniques.  Here are the cards shared by my wonderfully talented team members:

  4. WOW!! another wonderful and beautiful batch of cards, all of them truly lovely. I’m partial to the ones done by my fabulous friends and card swapping buddies, Sonny Peterson and Lisa Poe…..girls, your cards are beautiful!!!
    Thank you so much for participating, whoever receives any of these cards, will absolutely love them.
    And, thank you Brian, for hosting this fun card swaps.

  5. How lucky I am to have received Robin’s beautiful card. I love the technique used on the background…so creative. The picture really does not do justice to it. So very pretty. Also a little ironic that it originated in Southeastern PA and ended up there! Thanks Brian for the swap and Robin for the great card.

  6. These are beautiful cards! Such a variety of techniques.

  7. All the cards are simply superb and over the top! I received Brenda Sprenger’s card after it was highlighted by Brian on his 3 things I like post. He has a link above you can check it out. The reason I bring this up is because Brenda mentioned today she received my swap card. How cool is that. Thank you Brenda, your card is so beautiful in person. It is sitting on my shelf in all it’s glory. Brian, great idea to showcase your InKing Royalty Team!

  8. Wow! They have outdone themselves!Talented downline, Brian.

  9. I am so glad to see the lovely card I received showcased today. Sonny’s sweet turquoise and white double-butterfly card is so joyful and beautiful. I will share it with someone special, but for now I have it sitting up in my work area so I can enjoy it. Thanks Sonny for sending such a cheerful “Hello” card.

  10. It’s easy to see why you are all members of the InKing Royalty Group — the techniques, color combinations, and designs are great! I was delighted to find Shawn’s beautiful card in my mailbox! I really like the colors he used — Coastal Cabana is one of my favorites — and I especially love that the “amaze me” banner is tucked into the loop of the “y”! Thanks so much for sharing your talent and creativity!

  11. What talent to behold ! All of these cards are just great and thank you Robyn for mentioning that you received mine . Love those butterflies !! This is such fun !!
    Plus there are more to come !!!

    All the cards you’ve featured are fantastic. It’s so fun to see all the variety of styles each time you host these swaps (thanks, Brian!) and I come away with so many ideas. I received the card made by Maureen and I love it! Thanks, Maureen!!

  19. I love these cards! Everyone did a wonderful job! Thank you for sharing them.

  20. Angie in Illinois

    This one for one swap has so many great card ideas – can’t wait to stamp over this holiday weekend! I received Jackie Beers card and the picture doesn’t do it justice. It’s even better in person – the colors are so vibrant! Thanks for doing the swaps, Brian. They’re always lots of fun and so is your blog!

  21. Great cards Brian.
