Inspiration - SWAP card

Don't forget to checkout the blog candy posted on the side. My blog Candy will run until July 6.


During seminar I met so many wonderful ANGELS. SWAPing is an art in itself. I received so many wonderful swaps and special swaps. One SWAP I adored and wanted to recreate with my own twist is Maria Van Stratton (go to her blog here). Her card is the Olive and Black card. I changed it very little. Mine is the Red and Black card.

This is one of my favorite sets from Serendipity, edge design (T-3002), stamped and embossed with black emobossing powder (S-771). The papers are the basic cardstock, black (V-215), scarlet (V-237) and white ultrasmooth (V-222). The sentiment is from the new catalogue Hostess Set C, thinking of you (TC-3128) This set is wonderful and just the reason to sign-up for hostess club or a funshop. The ribbon is from the fun black and white collection (B-222). I am so happy all the ribbon is carried over to the new catalogue. I love our ribbon. The bunches I used were Extra Jumbo Circle punch (D-72) and Super Jumbo Scallop punch (D-704). Oh! can't forget the little detail at the bottom with the Cloud scissors (F-306). So simple but adds alot. I almost forgot the Candy Red embossing powder (S-753) around the sentiment using Circle Sampler(T-2691). I was a little embossing happy!. I made four of these for a gift. When I finish the birthday cards to go with the gift set, I will post them too.
