Convention Swaps 2009

I got together with some friends today to do some stamping. What a great way to spend a cool, rainy day! I worked on swaps for Convention when I wasn't visiting or eating. The one above is made with a Spanish stamp. It is a Hostess set which is also available in English. I am going to a class at Convention about using the Spanish Supplement and we are doing a swap with sets from the Spanish Supplement. I used the texture jumbo wheel on the Summer Sun card stock and Watercolor Wonder Crayons to color the flowers.

What I used:
stamp sets-Hermoso amanecer (Country Morning), Texture jumbo wheel
card stock-Elegant Eggplant, Summer Sun, Always Artichoke, Confetti Cream
ink-StazOn jet black, So Saffron jumo cartridge (made with empty cartridge and reinker)
accessories-ticket corner punch, dimensionals, AquaPainter, WWC (going gray, charcoal always artichoke, elegant eggplant, summer sun)

For this card I used the stamp set Flores Suaves set from the Spanish Supplement. I have no idea what the words say :) but I love the way they look as a background. I ran the Mellow Moss card stock through the Big Shot with the new Finial Press embossing folder. I'm going to make more of these cards just because it's so fun to use the embossing folder! The edges of my ribbon aren't going to fray...I used a lighter on the edges. You just have to be careful that you don't do it too long because the ribbon will melt!

What I used:
stamps- Flores Suaves
card stock- Chocolate Chip, Barely Banana, Mellow Moss, Very Vanilla
ink- Chocolate Chip, Mellow Moss, Creamy Caramel, Really Rust
accessories- 5/8" Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon, stamping sponges, sponge daubers, Finial Press Embossing Folder, Big Shot

I'm doing another swap, too, but it is doubling as my Bloggers Challenge for tomorrow. So stop back and see the Simple Snowflake stamp in action!
