Share it Sunday Blog Hop!

Sunday 27 February 2022 United Kingdom

I am hopping along today with Stampin' demos and papercrafters for the Crafty Collaborations Share it Sunday Blog Hop. 

Today I will be at an in person event run by my upline Michelle Last, for her team of Stampin' Up! demonstrators called the Pinkies.

I decided to join the swap group as I LOVE to swap and receive swaps from fellow demos.

I'm swapping with 9 other people so I will have one left over, I wonder which colour it will be? 

I created this fun fancy fold card for my swap using the 2021-2023 In Colours and the Flowing Flowers stamp set

For the first time ever, my swaps were finished over a week ago! 

I have limited free time at the moment so I had to be super organised and create the design one weekend, then the weekend after I prepared all of the elements (cardstock, DSP, stamping, ribbon) and then last weekend I assembled them.

A few days ago I shared my prototype of this card format. It was going to be my swap but then I ran out of Pool Party Ribbon and needed a new plan. 

I had to get creative and look at my crafty stash and create a brand new design and this is what I came up - a monochrome card created with the 2021-2023 In Colours! 

Pale Papaya


Polished Pink


Fresh Freesia


Soft Succulent


Evening Evergreen


I am so happy we have these colours for another year!

I think all five colours are lovely (Pale Papaya is definitely growing on me!). They look great on their own and also look amazing together. 

I usually create a fancy fold card for my swap. I like to make something a bit more complex, I always provide the dimensions so the recipients can at least utilise the design, if not inspired by the look/design.

I watched various YouTube tutorials for the basic design and then resized it to fit a UK card base. I was going to do a video but I haven't had a chance - do let me know in the comments if you would like a tutorial and I will see what I can do.

Now to find my swap bag - it's been a while....

Thank you so much for visiting my blog - I hope you enjoyed my project today!
