A Little Bit of Sparkle….


Well I did it again this year.

What’s that you ask?

I said I wouldn’t be making swaps unless I had time and would not be doing them ‘last minute’.

I guess I must have had time because I did end up making some but it was last minute. By last minute I mean I left for Convention on the Wednesday last week and started my swaps the Saturday afternoon/evening before….lol

Mind you the inspiration for this one came from a recent card I made for Mynnette’s Birthday Blog Hop and also one of the cards I made for my ‘Biggest Morning Tea’ Make & Takes.

I sat up till the wee hours of Saturday night cutting up cardstock, punching those pieces that needed punching and measuring and cutting the ribbon. Sunday I had Markets so I sat and stamped and put some together there as it was the quietest one ever. I also printed up my Project Recipe onto labels before I left on Sunday morning so I could add them to the backs and bag each swap as I made them.

I didn’t get them all done at the markets but I had them finished before midnight on Sunday night.

All up I made 51 swap cards plus my full card that we were asked to make.

Here’s the swap card I made.

Lots of sparkle on this card but it’s not that great a picture to show that off. I have added a strip of Red Glimmer Paper on the front and added Rhinestones to the small flowers and the black Scallop Trim edge piece.  I was really happy how this turned out and received lots of compliments.

it’s a great set for some quick cards and they still look great.

Stamp sets: Summer Silhouettes, Petite Pairs
Card: Basic Black, Whisper White, Real Red, Red Glimmer Paper
Ink: Basic Gray, Stazon Jet Black, Real Red
Accessories: Scallop Trim Border Punch, 3/8” Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon, Basic Jewels – Rhinestones.

Would love to hear what you think of my card? Please leave me a comment and make sure you add your blog so I can return the love.
