Convention Swap #2

Greetings from our last day of Stampin’ Up’s annual convention (sniff, sniff).  I have another one of my swap cards to share with you today.  All of the stampers who made projects for the Convention display boards agreed to swap one of their cards with each other.  Talk about a fantastic swap!

I used the Kinda Eclectic set for this swap.  This card was a little “more involved” than I normally make, but I loved it and for some crazy reason I thought it wouldn’t be too hard to make 24 copies of it.  Ha!  Let’s just say I probably wouldn’t make that same decision again.  🙂

KE SwapI started by embossing the Positively Chevron background stamp on Soft Sky card stock with clear embossing powder.  I then stamped the Dictionary background stamp with Basic Gray ink, and stamped off once on scratch paper before stamping over the chevron stamped card stock.

I embossed the leaf images with gold embossing powder and cut them out.  The little scalloped edge between the Soft Sky card stock and the Lullaby dsp strip was punched from a Gold Foil Sheet.

KE Swap Close UpI cut a label using the Apothecary Accents framelits and then paper pierced an oval shape from the Essentials Paper Piercing Pack on the label.  I then added some fun ribbons — Soft Sky 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon, Venetian Crochet Trim, and Gold Sequin Trim.

The sentiment is from the sentiment set, And Many More, which I borrowed from a sweet friend.

Come back tomorrow evening for another Monday Montage blog hop.  I’ll be sharing the card I made to swap with that group of fabulous ladies.

Enjoy your Saturday!  Thanks for stopping by!
