Convention 2010 Swaps

Here are the swaps I made for Convention this year. I made about 30 for trading during the general sessions. That was a good amount for me. Some people had hundreds of swaps!
I hate to admit it, but I was literally assembling these in the airport, on the plane and in my hotel room. But I did finish for swapping on Thursday morning. I got a lot of great swaps in return. When I get a chance to go through them, I'll post some of my favorites...

To get the embossing only on the outside, I used the Big Shot and Patty Bennett's tutorial here. It is SO easy and I love the results! I also used this card in a Big Shot class I had recently. It really has a WOW factor when people see it being done.
Can you see the shimmer? I used shimmer paint mixed with alcohol in a spray bottle and went spray happy!!!

  1. Love that technique for getting texture around a frame! Thank you so much for sharing it. Patty's tutorial is great. From what I've heard, you weren't the only one assembling their swaps up till the last minute. Your finished card was well worth the effort. TFS!

  2. These are just adorable!!! Don't feel bad about assembling in the airport. While I never been to convention, I hear that a LOT of demos do that!

  3. Too cute, love the embossed BG and the butterflies. It's in my favorite colours too.
