Holiday Mini Card Swap

I participated in a card swap with some very talented demos on SCS this month. I received the swap cards back on Saturday, so I thought I would share them here with you today. There were so many cards that it was easier for me to just scan them as groups instead of individually. It was so much fun opening that package and going through all the cards! The best part was seeing sets, ribbons and paper that I don't already have. The only bad part is now that I see it all in person it makes me want to buy even more stuff! I love the Apple Cider double sided papers (shown above) even more after seeing them in real life as opposed to just printed in the catalog
The Chocolate Chip Satin ribbon shown on the tag card above is just gorgeous! It comes in Pomegrante too! It was nice to see the Snow Blossom punch used on a couple cards...that is one punch I don't yet have. The Snow jumbo wheel sure is cute and so is Snow Burst! (I have been resisting getting this set...but I have a feeling it will somehow find it's way here;-)

This last grouping has two samples showcasing two of the new double sided designer paper assortments offered in the Fall~Winter Collection: Wintergreen, which is used on the Season of Joy card and Dashing, which is used on the Merry & Bright card. I love both of those assortments of paper! In fact I just got some of each on my last order but haven't created anything with them yet.

I must say, there sure was a nice variety of colors and sets used, wasn't there? Honestly, I was a little surprised that there were so few cards created with the traditional Christmas colors of red & green... but for me that made this swap even better! Thank you to all the talented demos who participated in this swap...I'm excited to share them with all my stamping friends at my upcoming workshops!
