Winter or Christmas Gina K Swap--Due December 1st
This swap is Round 7 on StampTV! The first 6 swaps here that I hosted were so much fun and there were some OUTSTANDING cards sent in!! So--here we go---Round 7, is up! And, check out below how you can earn a prize in your return envie.
The swap is for full cards with any Gina K Design stamped image on it. This round is for any image that is Winter or Christmas related--think snowflakes, snowmen, nativity, Santa, Church, etc. The image can be any set that Gina K sells--one of her own or any of her awesome designers. If Gina sells it, it counts here!!!!!!!!
Description: Full Size Card - 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. You do not need to supply envelopes. Please use at least 2 layers and 1 embellishment! Sign up for as many spots as you'd like, but please, make a different design for each spot you take. If your card does not fit into an A-2 envie, please include an envie along with your cards. See below for how to get a prize for more than one spot.
Quantity: 5+1. You will be sending me six cards and getting five back. You will not get one of your own back, so make an extra one for yourself. The plus one is for me as the hostess.
Vendor Products: Any stamp from Gina K--use any set that she sells--but PLEASE use very good quality cardstock (GKD, SU or PTI only). No vendor restriction on embellishments - use as many embellishments as you like. Designer papers are also encouraged, but not required. Be Proud of Your Creation!
Due Date: Thursday, December 1st. - I will mail them as soon as I receive all swaps! If I receive the swaps early, I will send them out early. If your cards are received after the due date, I may have to return them to you. I will only be able to wait a few extra days for any late swaps as I am heading out of town a week later and it will be too close to Christmas to mail after I return. Please post on the thread when your cards are shipped. Also, please post on the thread or send me a message if there are any issues or if you need to drop out. Sometimes life interferes with stamping and it is OK to drop out of the swap--no problem!!!! Please communicate with me as to your status.
Notification: I have a request of anyone who signs up for this swap---please add me as your "friend" here on StampTV. The only way that I can contact people is to post here on the thread or to send someone a personal message. However I can only send messages to those that are my friends, so please add me if I am not already one so that I can communicate with you on an individual basis. THANKS!
Mailing instructions: Place swap cards in a large Ziploc for waterproof purposes. Write your real name, StampTV name and swap name on a piece of paper or on the bag for identification purposes.
Swap Return: Please include self-addressed stamped envelope. The amount of postage on your SASE should be the same amount used to mail to hostess. Please include 2 additional stamps to insure enough postage to return swaps. Additional postage will be returned if not used. PLEASE SEND ONLY POSTAGE STAMPS, NO DATED STAMPS OR METERED MAIL. My Post Office will not take them. If you would rather use Priority mail, please include one $4.95 priority stamp or $5 cash and a self-addressed priority label. I will provide priority envelope, so you do not need to send one. If you are mailing from Canada please include $5 US (or more for additional spots) to cover return postage, and I will return whatever is left to you. Please post when you receive your cards in return too
Now, How to get a Prize:
If you sign up for more than one spot, you will get a prize in your return envie. Sign up for three spots and get two prizes!
Also, prizes will be for every 10th spot--10, 20, 30, etc.
If you land on a spot, you earn a prize and if you sign up for more than one spot and land on a 10, you earn each prize!

I made the tree fold card, Kari. Cheers
I love it Julia, what a neat and different idea!! Happy Holidays to you!!
Do you guys have any thoughts for the next swap theme? We could do Spring or Summer theme. Or flowers? Or, pastel colors? Toss out some ideas and I will post in January.
When will it be due? THat might determine the theme. Mother's Day is May - maybe that's a bit late. I'm always happy with flowers :)
Thank you, Kari.
As for the next theme, flowers sound great.
Merry Christmas everyone.
The next one would be due in maybe April--so flowers work work and we could then have any theme for the card--Mother's Day, Birthday, Get Well., etc. Easter is April 8th, so maybe I would make it the end of March so that Easter Lillies could also be a part of the theme. Does the end of March work, or would everyone rather have mid April?
Thanks Kari for the wonderful display...they are pretty wonderful. I wouldn't mind a Spring theme with a due date at the end of March. Flowers are a challenge but I can learn. Happy Holidays, all!
Just received my envelope. Beautiful work ladies; such talent.
