DAY NINE: Spring 2016 One-for-One Swaps

DAY NINEAll good things must come to an end – right?  Brace yourselves because today is the final day of the cards I received during April’s Spring One-for-One Swap.  You’ve told me how much you’ve enjoyed seeing all these beauties – and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed sharing them with you.  Each one is filled with beautiful inspiration – so much to love about the care that went into each and every card.

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).

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:

  1. Hello,
    I received Frenchie Hum’s card. I think it’s a really charming card. I think this card will make a great relief card. The saying “Let me pedal for awhile ” kind of sounds like”Let me help out for awhile”.
    Thank you Brian for putting this swap together. I enjoyed my first swap and looking forward to the next.

  2. So many great cards to get some new ideas from in this group. Each card would be a delight in my mailbox ! Diana and Karen convinced me to go ahead and get those stamp sets they used before they retire . I have been trying to decide and their cards are both great so I am getting both .
    Thank you Brian ! This has been fun !!

  3. I was so thrilled to receive Jennifer Ardent’s lovely card in the mail. Never can get enough of this set. Thanks Brian for organizing the swap. Can’t wait till the next one.

  4. Paula Poindexter

    The very last card is the one I got!
    Thank you Sue Johnson. It is very pretty and my elderly mother is going to love it!
    Thank you Brian for hosting this wonderful swap!
    Was my first, won’t be my last!

  5. This has been fun, I like seeing where all of the cards came from and today Nan Farwell’s card showed up from my town! Hi Nan, my card posted yesterday. I wonder who received it? Thanks for hosting Brian, lots of inspiration on these pages and our wish lists got longer!

  6. This collection of beautiful cards makes me smile. I’m definitely inspired!

  7. I received Nan Farwell’s beautiful card. Such detail. Thanks.

  8. Hi All! Brian, thanks so much for doing this. There are certainly a lot in this swap. I too have been patiently waiting for the card that I received, but enjoying the suspense at the same time. I see they are in alphabetical order? The card I received is shown today by Karen Greiss. The cut out is perfect, but the fish peeking out is gorgeous. You cannot see it here, but it is iridescent!!! It looks very “fishy-ish”. The little seahorse is just adorable. Great card!
    Thanks a bunch!

  9. Oh how I hate waiting. I finally see the card I received. I got Shirley’s card with the butterflies. It’s so pretty! I love it! I will surely be casing it. Thank you Brian for hosting these swaps. They are so much fun!

  10. Being a former “typing” teacher, I love Jane’s card. Please have more of these swaps–I enjoy the talent of all of your followers.

  11. From beginning to now the end, the cards have been amazing. So many great ideas. Thanks Brian for hosting this fabulous swap.

  12. Oh Brian – it’s been so much fun to see all this wonderful creativity and to track where everyone is located! It is amazing how computers have brought people from all over the U.S. and world for that matter together to share their unbelievable talents. Thanks so much for doing this exchange and sharing it with all of us. You certainly have a fabulous group of talented people that follow your blog.

  13. Such inspiration! I really love Georgette’s design.. I adore washi tape and buy it by the handfuls …. and then get stuck on exactly how to use it. This was a great way to showcase it.

  14. This is another group of beautiful cards. I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing and being inspired by all the various designs and colors from this very talented group. I’ll definitely participate next time. Thanks to all of you and to Brian for bringing us this great swap.

  15. I was the lucky person to receive Julie Hulka’s gorgeous Springy card…Love the flowers, the layout and colors…I mean, what is not to love about this card…Thanks for the beautiful card Julie…I have a very special person in mind to send this to!

  16. What a great parade of cards this spring. There are several I’ve saved and will use for ideas! Thanks to all for such great cards!

  17. Although all the cards are great, I love Georgette’s use of washi tape.

  18. Everyone’s card has given me ideas and inspiration. I received Jesse Naylor’s card and it is perfect for me. I love black and white and newsprint. Thanks so much for the hard work with the swap Brian. Now I need to get busy!
