Here are my swaps as a group ready for Convention...
This was my first swap creation, with inspiration from Bridgette Bygrave (thanks Bridgette!) and especially for letting me play with some SU! products that I don't currently have...the Delicate Designs Embossing Folder and the Large Scallop Edgelit Die. As they were small gift cards I made complete cards and not just card fronts.
My second swap design was to allow me to play with embossing whisper white on crumb cake and to also use my (not previously opened) coordinating stamp set and dies for the Ornament Keepsakes.
Then, for my last swap I thought I would like to use the technique again that I used on the JAI Swap where I used the same coloured ink as my cardstock, in this case Old Olive, and inked the embossing folder (by running the inkpad over the pattern) before I ran the cardstock through the BigShot. This technique really brings out the embossed pattern, here the Lattice pattern, in the JAI swap it was the Lacy Brocade pattern.
This then lead me to use the Field Flowers stamp set and a colour combination from the Color Coach, which was More Mustard, Old Olive and Bravo Burgundy...I thought they worked very well together, what do you think?
Hopefully, I can share some of the excitement here with you next week when I return from Convention. If you wish to book a workshop to learn how to make any of these cards then send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will respond when I return. Have a great weekend.
Don't forget my Convention Special check the earlier post or pop back tomorrow when I will repost it!
