I joined a Project Life Swap group on Facebook a few months back and have really been inspired. Basically every month, the admins post swap themes (8-10 usually). You sign up for how many you want and commit to making usually 10 cards utilizing the theme. Before the due date, you send your cards to the swap host. She collects everyone’s cards, sorts them, and sends you back a packet of cards.
This month, I joined nine swaps. I'll be showing the last four of the swaps today:
Movies -- While simplistic, I think it does the topic justice. I just did some simple stamping with my alpha stamps and star stamp (masked out the other two stars). Mounted on nice red paper, it was still missing something until I added the gold washi tape.
Stars -- My favorite PL swap card of the month. These look amazing in person. I stamped Midnight Muse stars onto the navy paper and then stamped a star and moon cluster in craft white. The craft white is much more of a contrast in person. I then add some silver glitter tape and alphas. I ran out of appropriate letters in silver so a few cards have gold. Both look very nice.
Coffee -- I always forget about this stamp. It's an oldie but a goodie. I stamped in Blackberry Bliss and Baked Brown Sugar onto vanilla cardstock. I threw on some Color Me Autumn washi tape for added visual interest. Finally I mounted the small card only some lovely brown polka dot paper.
Nontraditional Christmas Colors -- For this swap, we had to make a Christmas card in nontraditional colors. A few options were given and I went for the pink and lime. I really like how these came out. I stamped a sentiment and star from Christmas Bliss in Melon Mambo or Wild Wasabi. I added some gold chevron washi to the background layer for some added interest. Finally I punched out a gold shimmery paper Christmas tree. This is a fun card!
