My “top-notch swap.


I just realized I haven’t shared MY convention swaps….  so here goes.

So. This year my travel plans were extremely tight before convention. I returned from Kansas just 24 hours before leaving again for Salt Lake. Knowing this, I decided to just sign up for a couple of organized swaps just so I could sign up for things I was interested in. This swap was called “Top-Notch and what I liked about this one is that we had to specify the stamp set we were gonna use. That way we we got 20 cards using 20 different sets!  I signed up to use the Happy Flowers hostess set. Cause it is happy, happy! 


I am in love with the new in colors. They are so…. I don’t even know how to describe it. Anyway. I made this with Crisp Cantaloupe embossed with the polka dot embossing folder. I added the pool party trim embossed with chevron. The strip of paper is crumb cake. And whisper white for the scallop trim. I love the crisp whiteness with the crisp cantelouoness.  I cut out the stamped image with the floral framelits die. Then added the flower in the center. For this, I punched the 1 1/4″ scallop 3 times. Put a mini brad through all 3 and misted with water. Scrunch, smooch, sploosh, crinkle…crinkle and you have a nice flower.


Then of course rhinestones. Can’t do without rhinestones.


So… that’s it! My top notch convention swap. And I gotta say. I thoroughly enjoyed the seal too. Well planned and ran. And got lots of great samples.
