Convention Brainstorming

Enough of the text posts. I hate that, though it is an necessary evil when these big announcements come out. I'd much rather just have pictures :) Well, I have been playing around trying to come up with some swaps for convention. I always overdo it and am trying to keep it simple this year. However, I can't say I love anything I am coming up with. I am headed out of town for the weekend, maybe a shooting star will hit me and bring me something fantastic but simple. If not, well I will probably not make any swaps other than for things I have committed to. Here are the three cards I came up with while playing. All three use the new In Colors and 2 out of 3 use the new Bella Rose Paper.This card uses the Pink Pirouette & Kiwi Kiss Cardstocks along with Bella Rose Designer Paper. The set is the new Dream Du Jour. The scallop is done with the new Scallop Edge Punch.The In Colors used here are Red Riding Hood, Kiwi Kiss, Pacific Point and Tangerine Tango. I used the Scallop Edge , Scallop Circle, Small Oval, 1 1/4" Circle, and 1 3/8" Circle Punches, plus the Crop-a-Dile. The Thank You is popped up on a Dimentional.This is my card for a Christmas Swap I am in. I tried to mimic a present. I used the Baja Breeze Cardstock and Bella Rose Designer Paper. For the tag- the stamps are from Punch Pals all of which are punched using the Scallop Circle, 1 3/8" Circle & 3/4" Circle Punches and then layered together. The ribbon is the 5/8" Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon.

I don't know why you are so hard on yourself...all 3 cards are beautiful. I really like the way you made the 3rd card look like a present.
