My Convention Card Swaps

Card Fronts I made for general swapping at convention. I used the Bodacious Bouquet and Warm Words Stamp Sets. The oval punches
were used to layer the saying.

More card fronts for general swapping at convention. This was a shape card for a baby outfit. The whisper white card stock is the shirt and the colors (sage shadow, pretty in pink, barely banana, bashful blue, blush blossom) are the outfit. Complete with white brads to look like snaps on the shoulder.
I used the small tag punch to cut out each little pocket stamped with the image from Greetings Galore. Each color was stamped with the same ink pad color to get a tone on tone image. I punched the saying with the word window punch and attached with eyelets. Alot of cutting and details, but a fun project to share.

Another card front that I made for general swapping at convention.
This card features watercoloring and dazzling diamonds glitter
in the center of each flower.
The stamp sets I used are Sassy Stems and Sincere Salutations.
The colors are Always Artichoke, So Saffron, Rose Red, Almost Amethyst.

I only made a few of these for general swapping. I couldn't wait to play with new things. I used the Priceless stamp set. The colors are Groovy Guava,
Almost Amethyst, Lovely Lilac. The new Photo Corner Punch highlights the corners of the card. Each flower is cut out and popped up with deminsionals.

These are full cards I made for an organized convention swap on SCS, for WOW! cards. The idea was to make a card using a unique fold, type of opening or technique. These were my creations. Both were a great deal of work with extra details added.

The slit punch with ribbon creates a tab to hold the card closed. When you open it it has a frog stamped and popped up.

Artfully Asian: A variation of a pocket card. The greeting slides out from the side where the circle punch creates a tab to pull.
