Seminar Swaps

Part of the fun in going to Seminar is making swaps to trade with all of the other Angels. I made both card fronts and what they call "specials" ... basically anything but a card.

60 Raccoon Birthday Wishes

Raccoon Card close up

For this card I used English Everyday Cuties I colored the raccoon with copics and sponged the edges. I then used Fabulous Frames and Savvy Sayings and die cut it out with my Labels 1 Nestability. I then sponged the edges black and matted that to another black Nestability. I had a black cardstock base and added a light greenish grey cardstock to it. I added black grosgrain ribbon and black gems. I then finished it off with a flower and button (which has black scrapper's floss through it).

I really liked how they turned out!

40 Gift Card Tins

I got these tins from a good friend of mine Traci! She had found them at a great deal!!! I bought 40 of them off of her thinking I could make them into great seminar swaps.

I covered the top of them with white cardstock folded in half and corner rounded. I stamped the candle from Little Cupcake and then pop-dotted it with fun foam for extra dimension. I colored the candle with my copics. I then added gold stickles to the flame and stamped a sentiment up the side and then another inside the card. I then tied a pink grosgrain ribbon around the entire container.

I was surprised how cute and easy these were and how fast they got put together!

You can easily fit a gift card into this tin .. for now I just added my contact information for the swappers.

Here is what the card looks like after you slide the ribbon off and open the top.

I can not wait to get to seminar ... I leave Thursday morning on an 8:00am flight ... I should be there about 10:00am ...

For my blog followers that are also going to Seminar ... please find me early!!! ... I should not run out of swaps, but you never know and I'd hate for you guys not to get these ... even if you don't have trades ... find me and I'll give you one!
