Newcomers--check out this fun swap! Great for stimulating your own creativity and showing others how much you can do with basic materials.
Here's how this will work:
Join a group below...or suggest a set and a "recipe" (which must include stamp image, CS, and ink color...and can also include embellishments, type of card (birthday), etc.
Sign up for any group(s) you want. Be sure that you own or have access to the set.
Here's where individual creativity comes in...add embellishments, additional layers, color in, distress, tear, stamp some more, whatever to make these ingredients into a great card. Then duplicate it for the other gals in your group. Send to me and I'll swap out. You'll end up with 5 similar yet different cards! Try to use the listed ingredients but if you need to substitute because you don't have something on hand that's okay.
***Make 5 full cards and send all 5 in...you will get one of your own back.***
*no recipes needed but please sign, initial, or stamp your cards*
I'll start with one recipe....submit your own too! If you submit a recipe, I'll assume you'd like to be in that group.
Postmark deadline to get them back to me:
**September 15** if mailing from Canada
