Card Swap - Punches

I recently took part in a “Card Swap” with other Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators.  A card swap is where a number of you agree to make a card or just a card front using specific colours, accessories, tools or technique.

The swap theme was punches, and as this was the first time I had ever done this, it seemed like the perfect theme to get into.  After all I have a ton of them!  So I made up enough card fronts with the “ingredients” on a label on the back for everyone involved in the swap, and sent them off to Pat who organised it all.  When everyone had sent theirs in, Pat kindly sorted them all out and sent us all our set of wonderful, varied and inspiring card fronts!

This is my card front:-
Punch Swap 2

Cardstock – Old Olive, Pretty in Pink and Rose Red
Inks – Old Olive, Rose Red
Stamp Set – One of a Kind
Punch – Boho Blossoms
Accessories – Gold Brads, Crystal Effects, SNAIL & Stampin Dimensionals

Here are all the cards I received back including  my own.
Punch Swap 1
