My convention swaps

Here are two for my swaps.  Both where made using the stamp set Betsy's Blossoms.  The large flower on the 3x3 card was stamped in Versa Mark and embossed with the Cherry scented embossing powder.  I then stamp a second flower in Raspberry Ripple and punched it out with the 1 1/4" circle punch.  It was matted with a Gumball Green circle and added tot he card.  The greeting was stamped and then cut out with the new banner framelit. 

The larger card was stamped first with the smaller flowers, then I stamped the larger flower and punched it out with the large scallop punch.  The leaves and center flower where stamped and cut out before placing them on the card. 

To finish each of the cards I added a little something "extra."  A dahlia button flower on one and the large pearl on the other.  Such a simple little thing, but just the right thing to take the card form o.k. to fabulous!

  1. These are both gorgeous. I would have definitely hoped I could have had two different cards to offer you, so I wouldn't have to choose between them : ). These would be "have to have" swaps, and I would have sent all of my friends over to you so they could have them too! I miss swapping with you, but I love getting to see what you've made!
