My January swap card

February 5, 2011

Each month I participate in quite a few swaps.  Okay, perhaps too many… I'm up late nights and spending many hours over the weekend creating these cards.  Okay, so I love it…  NOW, the best part of this all is receiving the swap cards back in the mail…  As a stamper, can you imagine receiving a Priority Mail flat rate box and knowing what is inside???  My world stops!  I stop whatever I'm doing and sit down so I can savor the moment. I seem to have come up with a method for reviewing the cards…  1st look thru quick…  2nd time thru I look to see if any of the ideas will work for a monthly party project (I usually like the colors or the layout or how a stamp set was used)…  3rd pass thru is to try and find a few of my favorite artists cards without looking at the back.

Here's the card I sent off to the swap hostesses (the girl that gather the cards, sorts them and sends them back to all the participants) for January.

This card uses the Bliss Sale-a-bration stamp set.  I love this set (okay, you will see it quite a few times in the next few months)!  I embossed the mambo & white (already stuck together before I ran them thru the Big Shot) together.  The little butterfly is perfect here.  I added a bit of bling to the Bliss stamp and to the butterfly's tummy.  Very simple, but nice!
Happy Stampin!
