DAY SEVEN: 2022 Holiday One-for-One Card Swap – Jacquelynn Donaldson

Before I share another AMAZING post from my Holiday One-for-One Card Swap, I want to share some incredible news. Stampin’ Up! is hosting ANOTHER Free Shipping Day TODAY. On orders over $75, you pay no shipping – what a great way to shop the Annual Catalog and take a last pass through the Last Chance Sale and recent Clearance Rack update. Oh fun!

I hope you will spend some time with your catalogs and place a $75+ order today. Yay! To begin shopping, CLICK HERE.

Over the past several weeks, I’ve been running to my mail box to collect the GORGEOUS cards you’ve sent for my 2022 Holiday One-for-One Card Swap. In a series of several posts over the next couple of weeks, I will share each of these beautiful cards with everyone. There’s so much wonderful inspiration to share!

2022 Holiday One for One Card Swap, Day Seven, Stampin Up!, Brian King

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. 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.

It takes A LOT to gasp when opening cards, but I did that SEVERAL times when opening the one-for-one swaps. There were SO MANY gorgeous cards in the One-for-One Swap that I could have showcased each one and told you all the things I loved about each one. I pulled two from the bunch and am showcasing them separately. Today I’m sharing the second of the two cards that gave me a HUGE smile. I hope you love this amazing card from Jacquelynn Donaldson as much as I do:

by Jacquelynn Donaldson, 2022 Holiday One-for-One Swap hosted by Brian King, Stampin Up!What’s black and white and red all over? This gorgeous card! I was stunned to see this new spin on a classic that’s been around for a while. SO gorgeous! Jacquelynn showcased the pine cones, leaves and berries from the Christmas Season stamp set in Stampin’ Up!’s 2022 Annual Catalog. The images in the set are beautiful in browns and greens, but there’s something AMAZING about seeing them in black and gray on her card.

Here’s a look at the watercolored images in the Christmas Season stamp set:

Christmas Season, Stampin Up!, 156293The Seasonal Labels Dies, also available in the 2022 Annual Catalog, includes some leaves and pine cones but many labels that can be used throughout the year. Jacquelynn used these dies to crop out the focal arrangement on her card. Here’s a look at the Seasonal Labels Die:

Seasonal Labels Dies, Stampin Up!, 156299Jacquelynn was smart to showcase her arrangement of pine cones, leaves and berries on a black-and-white pattern from the the Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper. This pack of 48 pages of 12″ x 12″ papers retires on January 4 (or when they are sold out). The price on these papers is reduced from $30 to $18, making them one of the best deals in the Last Chance Sale.
