Hello everyone! Hope you are having a terrific Tuesday, so far. I thought I would post my completed swap cards today, since I have been under the weather since yesterday and haven't been getting much done in the creative department. Blah! :(
About a month ago, I entered my first online swap. It was to use ONLY new release sets in the SU! catalog. After everyone was signed up with their stamp sets, the magic number to create was 30 cards. Why would I want to sign up for one of those 6 card swaps when I could tackle 30? (*read with semi-sarcastic undertone*)
My chosen stamp set was Aviary and let me tell you, I broke that set in pretty well with this project! 30 cards for the swap, plus a couple more for me. With this many birds, I was close to starring in a remake of an Alfred Hitchcock movie! Eeek!
This whole endeavor took over 2 1/2 days to accomplish, but it was a fun little project. I can't wait to see what everyone else has created when the cards are returned next week. I will post some pictures!
Here is a close-up of my finished project:Stampin' Up! Supply List:
