Brightest Glow Card Sample

Brightest Glow Card Sample

Getting a new stamp set, bundle, or Designer Series Paper is exciting! It’s fun to rip into the package and start creating immediately. But oftentimes, you’re stumped. Just what are you going to do with the supplies you just purchased? Sometimes you head to Pinterest, and sometimes you use Google to help you find samples. Additionally, get other ideas by participating in a card swap.

That’s just one of the fun activities my team of Kim’s Paper Krafters participates in. (Click here to read about the great Starter Kit special and also discover how to become a member of my team.)

Eighteen people participated in our recent swap. The requirements: use current Stampin’ Up! product to create a holiday themed card. I made the card shown above. Be sure to watch the video at the end of this post to see the other seventeen holiday card samples. You’ll get lots of inspiration for your holiday card making — from fun folds and more.
