My Swaps for Convention!

Well Hello There

I wanted to show you the swaps I did for convention... I did 75 all up. One I donated to Stampin' Up! and three I kept for my portfolio. So all up I was able to Swap 71!!!

Well here they all are...in one glorious neat pile!!!

I did three separate flowers in assorted colours but these next three were my favourite colour combinations

We have the Banksia (which by the way Banksias remind me of The Big Bad Banksia Men from Snugglepot and Cuddlepie an Iconic Australian Childrens book written by the clever May Gibbs)

Then the beautiful Waratah which I believe is NSW's state flower...

Last but certainy not least is the ever delightful Gum Blossoms...

Let me tell ya I was still doing these swaps on the flight over scrunched up in an airplane seat lol! Also the night before the first day of convention in the hotel room lol!!!

Supplies for these cards
Stampset: Blooms Away, Sanded
Cardstock: Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Inks: Kiwi Kiss, Black Stazon, for the flowers I used a combination of different colours including Rose red, Summer Sun, Real Red, Tangerine Tango, Pumpkin Pie amongst many others
Accessories: Chocolate Chip Tafetta & Thick Grosgrain Ribbons
Tools: Distressing Tool
Techniques: Crumpling of Cardstock, Blender Pens and Inks (My blender pens are trashed I need new ones lol!!!)

Thanks for stopping by to look!!!

Fabulous swaps! We don't have that set in the USA, different flowers here, so that was cool to see. Neat use of kiwi kiss!
