I have been pre occupied trying to organise my Convention swaps. I have made them up so everything is ready to put together. I hope to complete the cards as we travel and so I don't get total stamping withdrawal. LOL. My husband and I are leaving tomorrow and having a couple of weeks holiday in Melbourne before convention in Canberra on the 1st and 2nd May. So I won't be posting for a couple of weeks, and hopefully when I return I will have received my order from the new catalogue with my new stamping toys.
So these are my four swaps. I have used the new In Colours for 2009, Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze, Pacific Point,Pink Pirouette and Tangerine Tango.
The "Ocean Commotion" card features the Polished Stone technique using glossy paper, Sanded BG stamp and the shell from the set as a another back ground, main image is mounted with dimensionals .
The "A Happy Heart" card is stamped direct to paper and cut out and mounted at different levels. The heart flower is spotlighted.
The "Season of Joy" card is direct to paper also with the back ground created with other stamps from the set, a lot of piercing and a little bit of bling.
The "Rustic Rooster" is a pocket card made from an envelope, designed slightly different to the other previously posted version and has an insert inside.
Hope you like them. See you in Canberra, if you are going to convention.
