Shoebox Swap Cards

I attended the Gateway Glitter 'n Ink group Christmas party back on December 11th. It's always a fun time with a "shoebox swap," gift exchange and food! This year we made 14 swaps. If you're not familiar with what this is it is where you create a card or 3-D item and furnish all the supplies for the attendees to make your project -- placed in a "shoebox." Well, actually not really a shoebox but everything should be ready to stamp and assembly and placed in a container. We then go around the tables and create everyone's projects. We try to make them quick & easy so we aren't there all night trying to get every card made. Here are some of the cards that we made that night:

Gift card holder using clear-mount stamps (Vintage Vogue) by Mary Derhake.

Love this winter "easel" card by Sarah Klassing.

This one is my shoebox swap. Simple but cute!

We learned how to do "iris folding" with Sally Nusbaum's card. (Oh, I forgot to color my little guy, LOL!!!)

An adorable Valentine card using one of my all time favorite stamp sets -- Crazy for Cupcakes. When I use that set it always makes me hungry for cupcakes!! This card was made by AliciaTomicich-Wiley.

Another cute card using new product from the Occasions Mini - I {heart} hearts stamp set and the new punches!! Card made by Earleen McDaniel.

Loved this beautiful butterfly card. It is so spring-like. Unfortunately, I can't remember whose swap this was ... sorry!

I love the new speciality DSP on this card ... Sending Love ... it's all glittery and sparkly! Card made by Cathy Reash.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at all the wonderful cards made by a great group of stampers!!!
