A few more cards...

Card Swap 2

 For this swap I had to create 5 cards that were all the same.  You had to use this fold of card.  So here is my take on the card.
Card Swap 3
This swap consisted of creating 3 Thank You cards.
Here is mine.

This is a clean & simple card.  Two pieces of printed paper on a cream base.  The inside is blank.

This one is just the hot pink glossy card stock ran through the thanks embossing folder on a white card stock base.  The thank you circle stamp in stamped at the bottom of the inside.
This one was created with Washi tape, a thank you stamp and white card stock.  Super simple but I just love how it turned out.

Well that is it for now.

A few cards...

Thought I'd share my newest swap cards.  I'm currently involved in 3 different card swaps from different scrappy groups that I'm involved in.  So over the next couple of days, I thought I would share a few of the cards that I've created for this months swaps.

Swap 1
The theme this month for this swap is Seasons.  I had to create 4 cards, one each for each of the seasons of the year and the technique challenge was folding.  On the fall card I cut 4 pumpkins with my Cricut.  Sorry I can't remember which cart I used.  I folded 3 of them and adhered them to each other and to the 4th pumpkin.

Here are those cards.

Sorry it is sideways.  This is the inside of the fall card.  I created it on my Gypsy and cut with my Cricut.
 For the summer card I used a stamp set from Close to my Heart and a framlit from Stampin Up, the floral fantasy embossing folder by Cricut and some glossy hot pink card stock that I bought at Joann.

The spring card is created using a new folding technique that I learned for another swap that I'll post about later.  I "folded" the ribbon on the inside of the card.  The turtle is lifted up using a Wobble.

Sorry these are sideways, can't get them to turn.  This is the spring card.

For the winter card, I made a lollie, using some printed paper and the stamps are from CTMH.  I shortened the front of the card and used an edge punch to fancy it up.  The sentiment is actually stamped on the inside layer of the card and serves both the inside & outside of the card.  I stamped a couple of snowflakes in the top corner of the inside layer.
Sorry it is sideways.  This is the inside of the winter card. 

Hope you like them.
