The End is Here!

Yes, folks… it’s finally here.  This is the last of the cards I designed for a recent swap.  Don’t be sad… I can make other cards!  And I will.

So, before I introduce you to the last card, let’s recap…


I made 13 cards for a recent swap. You may be asking yourself what is a SWAP?  A “swap” is a very simple thing.  You swap (trade) things with other people. They are done in many different ways.  This was a swap through the mail.  Swaps can also be done in person.  You find out how many people will be participating.  Each participant makes a card for all the other participants.  In this case, you also make one for the person hosting the swap, because they are not participating.  This swap was also a full card swap.  Sometimes, swaps are just card fronts.  People do that so they can get more cards out of a piece of cardstock.  Some people do a  full card but do not do anything on the inside.  They leave that for you to do.  Which is sometimes great and sometimes not-so-great!  So, my full card swaps always include at least graphics inside.

Here are all the cards again…

I have included the directions for each one within those blog posts.  I will create a page that has them all one day soon, but until then, just go back through.  I know, I am out to make your life difficult.  Just kidding, but I am still getting used to this whole blogging thing!

So, I think that the last card is one of my favorites.  It is clean and simple.  It’s all about making the stamp set stand out and shine.  No fancy embellishments.  Of course it was hard not to add a little Wink of Stella… but I restrained!



And there you have it folks…  13 cards using stamps sets from the new 2017 Occasions Catalog and the new 2017 Sale-a-Bration flyer!

Let me see what you have been busy making with the new items!

Until next time, keep it simple, Stampers!

🙂  Joanne
