Behind again and playing catch-up!  Had a wonderful time last week with friends visiting thus the delay.  As promised in my last post, I am sharing a few of my favorite cards from convention swaps.  
The first card is from the Black & White with Additional Color Swap and was received from Sharon McCanless.  The card is just adorable and a perfect card to “welcome baby”.  The Something for Baby stamp set and Everyday Chic Designer Series Paper was used.  Watermelon Wonder Classic Stampin’ Pad was used to stamp the onesie and it pops against the black card stock.

The next card was from the Fresh Market Swap and is gorgeous!  Unfortunately, the creator did not provide their name but they did a beautiful job on this fancy fold card.   The Market Fresh stamp set was used to heat emboss the bunch of grapes with black embossing powder prior to coloring the grapes and leaves.  Farmers Market Designer Series Paper, Mossy Meadow card stock, 5/8″ striped cotton ribbon (cut in 1/2) and 1/4″ cotton ribbon were also used on this special card.

From the Gift Card Swap, this creative gift card holder was received.  Again, the creator did not include their name to receive credit for their creativity.  Bohemian Designer Series Paper, Blackberry Bliss card stock and Fabulous Four set was used to make this package shaped gift card holder.  The front flap of the package top opens to reveal the gift card holder slot.  The flap is held in place with small velcro tabs.

Hope you enjoyed seeing a few of the cards received.  It was fun to participate in the swaps and I have many cards that will provide lots of inspiration.  You’ll definitely see these designs in the future on my blog!  
Be sure to check back on Tuesday to see a creation from the Holiday mini catalog (you’ll be able to place orders from it on September 1) and I’ll also be sharing a Silhouette project.
