My Convention Swap

June 14, 2010 | 3 comments

When I made this card for my April Stamp-A-Stack class I really liked it so thought I’d adapt it slightly and use a different colour combination (we didn’t know about the Colour Renovation back then) for my Convention swaps.

I decided not to put pressure on myself this year either and limited myself to 50 swaps only. I had them done by early April which was great. One less thing I had to worry about. Normally I’m finishing them off the night before.

The colour combination I used in this card was Rich Razzleberry, Pale Plum and Mellow Moss. As in the past I thought we’d only have Rich Razzleberry until the next new IB&C was released in September, so I decided to change that colour to Elegant Eggplant instead. Unfortunately even though Elegant Eggplant is staying, Pale Plum and Mellow Moss will be leaving us.

This is the finished swap card.

Apart from the colour change I also layered a smaller flower on top of the larger one from Vintage Vogue and used a smaller Clear Rhinestone Brad.

I really liked this colour combination too.

I have a feeling Pale Plum and Mellow Moss will be 2 colours I won’t part with once the Colour Renovation takes place on 1st September. I’m sure we’ll all have a colour or 2 we wish wasn’t leaving us. Make sure you stock up if that’s the case and sooner rather than later so you hopefully don’t miss out.

Till next time……

    I feel exactly the same way about Pale Plum. I don’t know what i’m going to do without it!

    I’m already a little lost for colour combo’s.
