Control Freaks Swap Card!

Dave and I are flying back home today! I know I'll have so much to share with you and I know by now I'll be ready for home. I tend to be a home-body anyway. While being away, the Control Freaks group that I belong to held a mail-in swap that was separate from our convention swaps. I mailed mine to Lisa before I left for our trip. My package of swaps will be waiting for me when I get home. Can't wait to see what everyone created. In the meantime, here is the card I made for the swap:

I chose the Groovy Love stamp set:

I also used the Lullaby Designer Paper and coordinated all of my colors to the designer paper. I love how one can do that with our Stampin' Up! products. Everything is matchy-matchy!

Have you ever been part of a group swap? If not, here's what it looks like in production mode:

I made these about a month ago and can't recall how many we had to create as a group. I'll know when I open my package! I cut, stamp, punch and pile up all my pieces for my card after making my sample....

Even the In-Color Sequins were a perfect match!

I'll be posting the other cards in the next few days. Give me a few days to catch up as of course, I'll have lots of emails, facebook messages, laundry, and new goodies to put away and probably a bit of jet-lag! We have to drive an hour and a half from the airport to get home so it should be mid-afternoon by the time we get home!

Thanks for stopping by to visit me today!



  1. Debbie, I like how you layered the hearts! Liking the sequins too! I feel a CASE coming my way!

    1. Hi and thanks Linda, just got home from convention. Will be emailing you!

  3. Debbie, you are one talented busy, busy lady! I've never been one for heart stamps but this set is tugging at my heart strings. Me, I would take the first day off when I get home but you'll probably hit the floor running.

    1. Thanks Lucy! We took the red-eye flight home (never again!) and I am very tired so yes, I may be taking tomorrow off!

  4. Wonderful swap card! Love your colors and the cascading hearts....makes me happy to see it!
