January Swaps

Last night was the January meeting of the CYRious Stampers. Pat set the parameters of the swap and her only requirement this month was to use new Designer Series Paper (from the Occasions Mini) on your card.

This was Pat's card. She used Not Quite Navy card stock and Botanical Gazette for the DSP. It doesn't show well in the scan but it's honeycomb. So, she also used the Just Buzzin' By stamp set. Cute, eh?

This was Diane's card. She used the First Edition DSP for the flower on this card. She also used Very Vanilla card stock for her base, Basic Black card stock for the Square Lattice embossed layer. Very Vanilla 5/8" Grosgrain ribbon and a Basic Black flower brad for the center of her flower. She added a small metal edged tag with the sentiment. Very nice job Diane!

This was my swap card. It's a Baja Breeze base with a piece of DSP from the Springtime Vintage package. I used the Scallop Trim punch on one edge and tied it with Night of Navy 1/4" Grosgrain ribbon. I used the 2-step Bird punch and used Old Olive for the branch, Night of Navy for the bird body and Baja Breeze for the wing. I finished off with one of the Basic Pearls for the eye. The sentiment is from Curvy Verses.

Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget about the Blog Candy give-away. Check the previous post for the details.
