Chain Card Swap Blog Hop – Carolina

Back in October 2023 I joined a group of Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators to take part in a ‘Card swap with a Twist – Chain card Swap.

How does this work?

The swap is similar to an old fashioned chain letter or I would say…”Chinese Whispers with Cards’

  • We were given a list of names – 11 in total (not including myself)
  • Create a simple card
  • Send to first person on the list
  • Wait to receive a card from someone…
  • ‘CASE’ that card and send it to the 2nd person on your list
  • Repeat until all people on the list has received a card

Now this is the fun part….When you CASE the card you received, it’s your interpretation of the received card. Just like ‘Chinese Whispers’ you may not end up with what you originally designed

Round 4 – Meandering Meadows

This card makes my heart sing….I love the way it turned out. I used Meandering Meadows Suite for this card, which you will find in the Online Exclusives.

For my card I changed the orientation of the card, from a landscape to a portrait. The back ground I stamped the small images with Fresh Freesia Ink onto Fresh Freesia cardstock.

A strip of Lemon Lolly cardstock adds a little extra colour next to the Meandering Meadows Designer Series Paper.

A White Vellum circle was cut using the Deckled Circle Dies. The flower images were stamped using Basic Gray Ink and coloured with Blends…Granny Apple Green, Lost Lagoon, Shaded Spruce, Fresh Freesia, Lemon Lolly, Blueberry Bushel, Misty Moonlight and Daffodil Delight.

The sentiment was stamped in Fresh Freesia Ink.

    How fun that you brought the vellum back in without knowing it was used on the original design.
