DAY FOUR: Holiday One-for-One Swap Cards

day-fourAfter collecting a bunch of amazing Holiday cards over the past several weeks, I am excited to share them with you.  This swap was filled with beautiful inspiration, and I know you’re going to love these projects.  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 about that card when it debuts here.  That way, the creator of that card will be sure to see your comments.

If you missed the previous Holiday One-for-One Swap posts, you can see those projects 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.  Without any further ado, here is the next batch of your beautiful cards:

  2. Aren’t they all beautiful? I love how some of them have mixed and matched stamp images, sentiments and DSP.

  5. So much creativity! I’m grinning from ear to ear looking at Mimi’s card. Mimi brought me to my very first stamping class four years ago and opened a whole new world to me. Thank you Mimi!!! And thank you Brian for a beautiful parade of cards.

  6. These are a beautiful group of cards with fantastic layouts and awesome coloring. Loved how the DSP added so much interest to the cards.

  14. Florence Pangelinan

    Such lovely cards. That pine cone die really is one I need to get–it sure dresses up any Christmas/winter scene.

  15. Thanks, Christina! I received your jar of joy! Very cool.

  16. Chris R. from Iowa

    Be still my beating heart! All of these cards (in addition to all the previous ones) are so wonderful! So fun to figure out what they used to make these and what to CASE. It is just so much fun to see what everyone has done and read the comments. Again, thanks Brian for facilitating the swap and encouraging us!

  17. Christmas started for me when I received Linda Callahan’s beautiful card. It is much prettier in real life. A camera can’t pick up the different levels of this card. I was especially excited to get a card from Linda because I’ve been checking out her blog for years.
    Thanks so much, Brian for your swaps. You’re wonderful for doing this.

  18. Well Jackie you just made my day! I am sitting here by the fire recovering from pneumonia feeling sorry for myself and you just made me smile! Thanks so much for those kind words!

  19. o – o – o – o! I almost missed this, and the card I received made by Mimi Colwell is here! All of the cards are lovely, but Mimi’s coloring is outstanding and her layering sets it off perfectly; hers is my favorite 🙂

  20. Another batch of amazing cards! Love them all, but especially the first one…the one I received from Sacha! Adorable and beautiful!!

  21. Great swap! My first time participating in Brian’s swap. I received Jeanie Stark’s card and love it! Nice work everyone!
