DAY EIGHT: 2018 Holiday One-for-One Card Swap

All good things must come to an end. I’ve loved sharing the cards from my 2018 Holiday One-for-One Card Swap – and I’m so excited to share the last batch of beautiful cards from my 2018 Holiday One-for-One Card Swap. There’s so much wonderful inspiration to share!

2018 Holiday One-for-One Card Swap - Day Eight, 8 great swap cardsThe cards in this final batch of projects feature beautiful Fall or Christmas florals. What a bunch of beauties! I love these swaps because they showcase beautiful projects from card makers 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:

  10. Oh no – they say all good things must come to an end but “they” don’t say we can’t be unhappy about it. It’s been such fun to see so many creative and beautiful cards. Thanks to all the ladies sharing their talents. Great job! Thanks Brian for letting us share in the amazing talents of your followers.

  11. Wow, another round of great cards! Thanks for proving us an opportunity to share so many great cards!

  12. Another day of wonderful cards. I received Laurel Watkins beautiful card. Thank you so much! It was so fun to look forward to the cards for each day and see if the card you made was there or the one you received. Thank you Brian for doing this for us.

    • I love all the traveling my card did! From Texas to Georgia to California! Thanks for letting me know where it ended up, Shila! Merry Christmas!

  13. Fantastic ! This group is just as lovely as the others and very good ideas on how to use dsp to accent or decorate .
    You really did get a ton of great cards . What fun to open your mail each day !!

  14. Kerry Donaldson! I was the incredibly lucky person to receive your card! The muted color scheme is so gorgeous! the other things I love about your card are the way you arranged the sprigs and your use of the border die from Petal Pallette to frame the sentiment. (Thanks to you, I now know one way to use this die, LOL!)
    I can’t believe that you needed courage to share your artwork, as your note said. I was blown away by its beauty. Your bravery paid off! Keep on stampin!!!!! (And is it Kerry or Jacquelyn? Your personal stamp says Jacquelyn)

  15. Hi Adrienne! I received your lovely card this year. Thank you for sharing with me!

  16. Love the non-traditional Christmas colors on the cards.

  17. Gorgeous cards by all! Lots of talent out there.
