Convention Swaps (Part 2)

2015 SU Convention Swaps 02

I hope you had a good weekend.  The weather was beautiful here, not too hot not too cold, but just right.  [grin]

I would like to share three more swaps I received at convention.  This grouping shows just how diverse we all are in our design taste and esthetic. 

CARD 1:  (Top Left)  This swap features the Build A Birthday stamp set along with one of the new 2015-17 In Colors – Watermelon Wonder.  I like how she popped the middle and lower “cake” tiers progressively higher to give the feel of a three tier cake.

CARD 2:  (Top Right)  Features the very popular and versatile “Balloon” Framelits Die Set, Best Thoughts Host Stamp Set, Bohemian Designer Series Paper,of course a bit of Gold Glimmer paper and another of the new 2015-17 In Colors Hello Honey.  The Gold Glimmer paper a nice bit of sparkle.

CARD 3:  (Bottom)  I am finding the Expressions Natural Elements (Thanks) are growing on me more each time I see them.  Hmmm…..another wish list items?  Lol!  The embossing with the Lovely Lace Embossing Folder and the flower shape with the  Pansy Punch are a nice combination to highlight the Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper Stack peeking from the punch shape.  Finally to top it off with a subtle bit of shine by adding the 1/2″ Calypso Coral Seam Binding.

I would love to give the creators of these cards a prop but unfortunately none of these had any information on the back.  So…..if you know who created these 2015 Convention swaps let me know so I can share their names.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope these designs have given you a bit of inspiration.  Don’t forget that playing with paper, ink and a stamp set can help relieve stress.  Have a great Monday!


Sparkly Hugs, Carol
