DAY SEVEN: 2017 Holiday One-for-One Card Swap

Holiday One-for-One Swap, Stampin' Up!All good things must come to an end.  I can tell from your comments and enthusiasm for the first six Holiday One-for-One Swap posts that you love the inspiration from these fun cards.  Today, sadly, is the last day of the swap – the conclusion of all the cards I received during this wonderful swap.

After collecting a batch of beautiful Holiday One-for-One swap card over the past month, I am excited to share them with you.  This swap is filled with beautiful inspiration, and I know you’re going to love these projects.  In a series of several posts over the next two weeks, I will share these cards with everyone.

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 shows up on my blog – that way, the creator of that card will be sure to see your comments.

The collection of cards I’m sharing today might not all have current Stampin’ Up! products, but every card gives great ideas for color combinations, layouts, techniques – every project is sure to inspire you.  Without any further ado, here is the final batch of your beautiful cards:

  3. I have been admiring my card from Margaret Hendricks waiting for it’s debut. Today it is shining in all it’s glory. I love the simple design and dollies always add a special touch. Thank you Martha!

  4. Thanks for sharing these fabulous ideas. I love seeing the states where the artists are from, too!

  5. So festive! These cards make me want to go right to my craft room and stamp. Every card is an inspiration!
    Happy Thanksgiving to All!

  6. Oh my ! So many great ideas and inspirations! I think each one of these cards are winners ! The Swirly Bird wreath one by Shirley just rang my bell because it is so cute yet simplicity at it`s best !!
    LOVE THIS PARADE !! Thanks Brian !

  7. Carla Endris…I was so excited to get your card! I love deer and anything woodsy. I’m guessing that Brian knew how much I would love it. All of the cards are amazing!!!!

  8. These are all great. Why am I not surprised I love Linda’s a ton?

  9. Another great showcase today. Fantastic use of DSP, embellishments and die cuts. So many ideas to CASE. Thanks Brian for putting us all in the holiday spirit.

  10. Another bounty of beauties! I was the lucky recipient of Gay Lynn Morrison’s card which brought lots of good tidings and joy! I think Brian remembered I love the layers and mat – boy, this one is so pretty! Love the little dots for berries as well. Just a really fun and festive card with an old timey greeting. Thank you Gay Lynn and thank you again Brian for a fun swap. I just love seeing all different cards.

  11. Oh no! The parade of cards is over? How can this be? I guess I got spoiled getting to see all the talent from your followers all over the country. They are truly all gifted. Thank you all for doing such a fantastic job and thank you most of all Brian for sharing them. It was such fun.

  12. I got the beautiful card that Deborah Peters made. It is so much prettier in real life where you get the full effect of the glimmer paper. Even my husband said “wow” when I pulled it out of the envelope. Thanks Brian and Deborah.

  13. Great cards one and all – but love the simplicity of the one by Shirley. Great design, very attractive and just overall really nice card. I don’t know how to contact Shirley – so please send my thanks for great design to her.

  14. Peggy (Margaret) Hendricks

    I received Shirley’s fun and festive card! I love the upcycle of the “wreath” circle from Swirly Bird. Thank you for using the red-green-white palette! Nothing says Christmas like red and green. Thank you so much for this beautiful card! I was so excited to swap and see these lovely examples of holiday cards. Thank you, Brian! You really are the King!!!

  15. Apologies to Margaret Hendricks. I signed off thanking her as Martha.

    I received the lovely card that was made by Debra Olsen. I loved how she did the coloring and shading on this card. We have had seven days of wonderful cards from all over this country, so many talented people it is sad to see it come to an end.

  17. Linda Callahan, Thank you for your adorable greeting!! I was so excited when I opened your beautiful card. I so enjoyed being a part of this awesome card swap event.. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
