Last of the swaps

This is the last of the swaps from the Tartan Stampers Mini Convention back in April.

As well as being a very pretty card I also learned a new way to make a flower embellishment. The best way I can describe it is that you cut scallops along a piece of satin ribbon and then attach the ribbon to a circle of cardstock. You then heat the ribbon with a heat tool until the edges start to melt - but not too much, we don't want it to go on fire!

And this sweet little covered notebook was Laura's swap. I loved the little 3d hearts and the colours really make it pop.

 This next card is fab as well. This was Lorraine's swap and another new technique! The background is En Francais and then the floral stamp from Just Believe was stamped in Versamark and then embossed with white embossing powder using the heat tool. The next bit was the clever bit. Colour was added to the background using shaving brushes! I really liked this effect as it was softer than brayering and there was no danger of any hard edges when you use too much ink! Or is that just me!

 And last but not least was Carolyn's elegant scrapbook page that uses the Mocha Morning papers. Can you believe I have a pack of this paper that I have not even opened yet! I think that will have to be added on to my (ever increasing) list of projects to use/make.
