Chain Card Swap Blog Hop – Genna

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 9 Simply Sparkling

This card was so much fun….I got to CASE a lovely friend of mine Kayla, I received her cards and got so excited for the layers and fun her card shared.So I hope mine also shares the same fun and excitement.

For this card I used the Simply Sparking Bundle and paired it up with the Bright & Beautiful Designer Series Paper. The Simply Sparking Bundle is one of the Online Exclusives, a great Bundle for the young or young of heart.

I stamped my image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, adding the swirl on the can with Berry Burst and the wording also with Memento Tuxedo Black. This was fun to colour using the Stampin’ Blends in Smoky Slate, Berry Burst and Bubble Bath.

  • Card Base – Lemon Lime Twist
  • Matte – Berry Burst
  • Card Front -Bright & Beautiful DSP
  • Basic White panel embossed with the Splatters Embossing Folder from the Stripes & Splatters 3D Embossing Folder Duo
  • 2 thin strips of Bright & Beautiful DSP
  • Bubbles cut from Bright & Beautiful DSP
  • Sentiment stamped in Tuxedo Black on Basic White

I love all the layers and the Kayla’s folded corner.
