Chain Card Swap Blog Hop – Cheryl

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 2 – Circle Sayings

The design elements I used from the card I received were

  • The strips of Designer Series Paper on the card Base
  • 3 punched elements

Using the White Center 12 x 12 Specialty Paper, I tore strips showing the white core of the paper to add texture and maybe a hint of the ocean. These were then adhered to a Night of Navy Card Base.

I then punched 2 circles using the 2 3/4″ Punch that comes with the Circle Sayings Bundle in Azure Afternoon and Daffodil Delight Cardstock.

On a piece of Basic White Cardstock I stamped the ocean image from the Circle Sayings stamps in Memento Tuxedo Black. Using Blends this was then coloured – Daffodil Delight, Lemon Lolly, Azure Afternoon & Night of Navy.

Along the edges of the breaking waves I added a little white with the White Watercolour Pencils. This was then punched out with the 2 3/4″ Punch. A twist of White Bakers Twine under the stamped circle and a few Tinsel Gems added to finish the card.

    I loved what you did with the torn strips here – and started a whole new trail of design choices in the process.
