Convention Swaps #3

Here's the third and final swap I put together, and darling hubby helped me with. He's been great with cutting cardstock and running the Big Shot, you know, stuff a man can do. :)

This card uses a few new items from the catalog, the set Up, Up & Away, the set Barnyard Buddies, and the new Striped embossing folder. Check out how nicely the Scallop Dot ribbon fills in for grass!

I had to order extra cardstock, without really having a prototype complete. I wasn't sure if I could pull off the Real Red, although naturally a barn would be red, right? I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I cut out 90 balloons last night while watching the Tour, and I'm starting to get stamper's carpal tunnel. Phew, glad I'm done! Which reminds me, who would schedule Convention during Tour de France? I'm gonna miss the mountain stages... ahhhh! :(

Stamps: Up, Up, & Away, Barnyard Buddies; Paper: Bashful Blue, Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, Very Vanilla; Ink: Bashful Blue, Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Chocolate Chip; Accessories: Old Olive Scallop Dot ribbon, 1-1/4" Circle punch, 1-3/8" Circle punch, Cupcake Builder punch, Sponge, Square Lattice embossing folder, Stripes embossing folder, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, Big Shot, Dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by!
