Swapping and Sharing

Swapping is a fun way to share ideas.  You design one card to fit a certain theme and then you duplicate it a set amount of times.   At our Spring Sensation Stamp camp we had a Spring card swap.  

When it was time to swap, everyone lined up in a big circle.

Then you walk from person to person swapping cards with them.

It's kind of like trick or treating but without the tricks!  I think receiving a bag full of hand stamped cards is definitly a treat!

There were so many beautiful swaps.  Here's a bunch from my bag.  Our theme was spring cards for any occasion.  I love having all these wonderful samples to inspire me.

Glenda's card has a wonderful message on it.  A scripture from I Thessalonians 5:17 that reminds us the importance of giving thanks always.  This was also a fun fold card.

This is what it looks like when you open it up.  I love how she made the inside just as beautiful as the outside.

My favorite card in the swap was this beauty made by Robyn.

I loved how she used her simply score board to made an embossed back ground.  I love the tropical flowers and leaves made from the Botanical Framelits.  I love the way she sponged the texture and added a tiny drop of dazzling detail to make this card sparkle.  I also love that the sentiment on this card celebrates the gift of friendship.  Love, love, love, love it, could you tell?  I would definitely give this card to a wonderful friend.

Well as you can see if you participated in the swap at camp, you were blessed to receive some really beautiful cards.  I hope that everyone who joined our Spring Swap and Drop enjoyed these fabulous swap cards as much as I did.

Hope you have enjoyed Spring Sensation week so far.  I know I've shared a lot about this event but there is STILL more to come, so stay tuned.
