These are the cards I used for my Swaps (Cards to Trade with others) at OnStage last week. They are all the same layout. They just use different Designer Series Papers (DSP) and coordinating cardstock. I pre-cut the cardstock and the 3″ x 4-1/4″ DSP. In just an hour my three friends cut the DSP diagonally and assembled the cards. I punched, then stamped the sentiments using my Stamparatus so I could stamp two sentiments at once with different colors of ink. We were surprised at how quickly the cards were finished. I will put the paper and ink information under each photo. Nature’s Poem DSP #146338, Powder Pink card base, Blackberry Bliss card front, and ink, Under the Mistletoe DSP #146921, Early Espresso card base, Shaded Spruce card front, and ink.

TIPS: 1. Measure the width of the candy bar you want to cover. 2. Roll the candy bar on the paper as shown: side against the edge, top/bottom, side, bottom/top. Measure to where the edge of the candy bar is and add 1/4″ to 1/2″ to the measurement. Cut your paper. 3. Wrap your paper around your candy bar starting with the edge on the center of the bottom side. Finger press fold lines if desired. Trim paper if necessary. 4. Figure out which end of the paper will be on top and put three Glue Dots on that end. Wrap paper loosely around the candy bar and attach with Glue Dots. Move candy bar back and forth several times to make sure it will move smoothly. 5. Stamp sentiment on Whisper White cardstock scrap. Punch out with Classic Label Punch. Attach to Wrapped Candy Bar with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals OR Glue Dots.

I just LOVE the Petal PromenadeDesigner Series Paper (DSP) with all the beautiful Flowers to add to my cards. The piece I used came with the center blank to add a sentiment. It was even already in the rectangle shape so I just had to cut it out. If you just stamp on the front it is truly a quick and easy card. If you mess up the stamping, you can easily stamp on cardstock and cut it out to add to your card front.

I am changing my Challenges some. This Challenge is a CASE (Copy and Share Everything) Challenge. As usual, I make a few tweaks. I left off the ribbon under the Blushing Bride DSP, and I changed the sentiment. I also added Clear Wink of Stella around the DSP, on the Flower centers, and on the punched sentiment. When making your version you can change the stamps, colors, anything you want. Have fun!
