Hi Koreena  Grin

Alrighty.  Here are my offerings:

This set I think I'd do with half with the car and half with the umbrella man using similar patterned paper. I only had 1 sheet of this particular paper so if more than one person requests this, I'd substitute similar and just as nice paper.  It's hard to tell from the photo but the image is embossed and the edges are distressed.  I'd like to add a saying or embellishment that the receiver could choose.

This set could be done in many colours.  Whatever anyone wishes.  The sayings for the stems can be changed too

The stationary to match

And for something completely different

The owl is watercoloured.  The words at the top say "Have a hoot of a day."  It's hard to tell, but the background is watermarked with stars and moons.

Here's all my stationery for offer:

Stationery and cards are made from cardstock. Stationery can be lined or not. Pick your pleasure.

Candy stationery and cards - I have more colors available than the samples shown.

Halloween stationery and cards - I'm willing to customize with cats, owls, bats, and spiders along with the pumpkins

Magic happens card - I can make stationery with this design too, in multiple colors
Owl with a monocol and a mustache  stationery - I can make cards with this design too.

And here's the colors you have to choose from (with gratuitous cat shot because she kept trying to sprawl on the paper):

Wideeyed, we should work something out.  I can make your note cards and you can make my stationery.  Hee.  Just kidding.  I have a plan for the stationery.  It doesn't look like my order is going to arrive before the deadline, but if the temperature drops below 100-degrees, I'll drag my lazy butt over to JoAnn's or Hobby Lobby and get my supplies the old fashioned way.  Grin

Freaking 105 degree weather!  It's sweltering and horrible!  I'm living in one of those places where on the national news they show the heavy red radar-images floating, dubbed over with the newscaster's voice, "100 year records broken."  Ugh! Tongue

But then, makes for sitting inside, watching TV, and making stationary.  Lemons-lemonade, kind of thing.  We crafsterers are SurViVors!

*looks shame-faced* I live in southern California and the weather has been beach-worthy. It's only about a mile from my house but I stay shut in to finished my swaps  Cry
  But I DID get my note card samples done. Now I just gotta figure how to do the stationary Tongue I'll post a pic as soon as I can.
Here's the note cards I'm offering! Stationary coming soon  Wink They will be random letters, Not all A's. And My partner can choose the letter if they want. They're basically dictionary pages that have been torn up. I'm a literary gal so this just seemed to fit.

Stationary pages

I decided to just alter some envelopes I had by lining the inside with dictionary pages and adding some detail to the front and back to make them all a matched set ^^

Stationary set all together.

Okay, all!  Here goes!

First up: notecards (not shown, envelopes: all white, with possibly a coordinating celtic knot rubber stamped on them).
*These are "freestyle", using my assortment of "scrap" paper, and will all be different, with one exception: They will all have the uber-girly-pinky-pink cardstock/background paper.

Then, the stationary (made entirely with hand-carved stamps):
Which, personally, is my favorite.  But then I'm just that kind-of gal.
*5 themes, 2 pieces in each theme, for a total of 10 sheets.
---Guitar dude
---Balancing/happy dudes
---Cute mice
---Surprise (this set's surprise is the mushroom house, each set has a different surprise)
*5 envelopes, coordinating with the five themes.
*These babies are hand-stamped, hand-colored, and I have all three sets already made!  Woo-hoo!

That's it!  Hope you all likee!

My offerings are:

White stationary with green snails, or yellow cardstock with a green tie-dye effect, fabric trim on the bottom edge, and a variety of green snails. In these pictures they aren't glued on yet, so they'll be straight when they're done. The set of eight cards will have those five prints, and either another random green pattern, or duplicates.

Ok~ It's official.  I'm going derby style for this swap Smiley  I hope that's OK with all of you!  It seems that even people who don't play derby are interested or amused by it...  It seems to be a safe bet.

The cards I posted earlier ARE the ones I'm offering and here is the paper:

Option 1: Large watermark on unlined, coloured paper

Option 2: Small image at top corner & "Derby Love" signature on lined, coloured paper

And a close-up of one of the pages, so you can get a better idea of what it looks like:

I'd be happy to modify any of the offerings- If you don't want lines, borders, signature line on the paper for example, or if you want 8 of the same picture on the card, or 2 each of 4, or 8 different ones, etc, etc...  Also I'm limited by my stash, but will try to accommodate colour requests.

Hope you like them!!!   Grin

so here is my stationary sample

here is the photo for my second set of notecards, I like these alot due to the simplicity and detail, Im not sure if the photo gives them much justice. I have other prints designs like more animal print designs and more shine stuff too. These are 5 1/2 inch by 4, as recommended

just as a reminder, here is a pic of my 3-D flower note cards I will also be offering

Thanks for looking

I'm happy to let my selectors pick any combination of images. You can even select just one for all 8 cards

Here are examples of my stationery, primarily made from recycled items so if we swap please keep in mind that their will be some differences from set to set.  I will post the notecards later, just too excited had to get these pics up.

Here the examples of my notecards. There are three stamps to this set so if someone wanted just one for their whole set they could do that, each has a different quote.

Here's what I'm offering! Although, I may modify the stationery, but it'll be very similar.

For the stationery, it would be 2 sheets of each design (for a total of 10, and for the note cards it would also be 2 of each design (for a total of 8 ).

Hey everyone!  So excited to join this swap with you ~ Love the samples that have been posted so far Smiley

What do you think about these photo/roller derby cards?

This is a set that I made for another swap recently and my partner really liked them...  I use pictures from my roller derby league (the Niagara Roller Girls) and will use pictures that are 'annonymous' like skates or funny action shots.  I'll keep the insides blank, so that you can use them for any occasion...

For the stationery, I'm still working out ideas Smiley  I plan to keep it derby style, probably with sketches or drawings of skates or derby girls on the edges of the page.

What do you think??  Smiley

I'm 95% sure these will be my notecards.  I'm still waiting for some supplies to arrive, so I haven't done a mock-up of the stationery yet.  Hopefully soon!
