Received ~ Winter/Christmas Gina K Card Swap---Due December 1st

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!


Please post or send a message to me via StampTV with any questions.

thank you Barb for doing this you are wonderful.  I know you are also trying to get ready to leave for a trip so I for one am even more appreciative.

Good Morning--swapping the cards this morning and then heading to the Post Office.  I was not able to take pictures of the cards as my camera is not cooperating.  Sorry--they are all great.


Yes, I am going to be leaving tomorrow morning and will be back late on Wednesday.  But, I am taking my laptop along and will check in to see if the cards are arrving and how you like them.


Thanks for participating--I will post a swap for Gina K spring and summer cards after the new year--I hope you all come back to join us.

thanks again Barb

Received some wonderful cards back in the mail today.

Thanks Barb for hostessing another great Gina K Swap

Please let me know if you do another one!

Blessed Happy Holidays to all! 

Laura Jean // LJ 

OOOooohhh!  Will be waiting patiently by the mailbox Monday!  Fun, fun, fun - thank you Barb for all that you do!  Love the swaps that you host - safe traveling!  Hope all are enjoying this Christmas Season - happy stamping!

Did any more cards arrive?

Not yet here but I'm sure they'll arrive just before or after Christmas. THe problem here is in SA itself - slow movement of post between main depot, suburb post office and our home.

Would be amazed to see mine before the Holiday :-(

I received mine yesterday in the mail.  Thank you ladies for your lovely creations!!  This was so fun, and challenging ( time wise) to get them all done.  Who ever gets any of mine, likes them!!!  :)

My cards arrived today...I am soooo excited--they are simply wonderful!  I am truly sorry that we did not get an opportunity to see all of them.  I am learning so much from you guys and can't wait to try out some of the designs that were shared! Well done you talented group of folk!  Barb...good job & your prize always delights...Thank You!

Wishing all a happy holiday season!

Hi all

Just a thought, but we could all take pictures of the cards we receive and send them to Barb (if she does not mind) so she can post them for all to see, what do you think?

I think that would be great - it would also be a way to show who received each other's cards....what do you think Barb?
