Summer Swap

I did some swaps this summer. What are swaps? Basically what it sounds like. I make a bunch of the same card and trade with others who have made a bunch of the same cards too. I have done this locally with the demo group I belong to and through a hostess for an around the country swap. One of the swaps I was in this summer was for 3x3 cards. I love 3x3 cards. They're small and very cute. I love to tuck these little cards anywhere and everywhere. Here's the collection I got. The top rows were made by other Stampin' Up! demonstrators. The bottom row was made by me. The last card on the right was not in a swap but created for an open house I did recently for another group I'm a member of, Midwest Sales Support.

The card we made at the open house features the Elegant Butterfly punch. We stamped the image and punched it and layered it over a solid punched piece and added a little curl to the wings to give it some dimension. I noticed after I made the cards that I used retired DSP from the pack we got from Sale-a-bration but any small print will work.
