Wowza Swaps!

Wowza! That’s the word I used to describe the card swaps I received in the Wow Swap I participated in at the Stampin’ Up Leadership convention. I’ll post a few each day so you can see the detail up close.  The first one is my favorite and created by Toni Ballesteros (happy to say my good friend)  from Deland, FL

 Isn’t he spectacular?  I say it’s a he since it seems with his feather that he is showing off a bit this Valentine’s day, looking for his love bird.  Toni used our new Bird punch and VersaMarked the scallop edge, bird and branch first before sprinkling with Heat and Stick powder.  Then she used the heat gun to melt the powder, which left the card stock sticky to hold all that red and chocolate glitter!  Wowza!  That red satin ribbon really finishes it off.


This neat card was stamped by Alanna Wharf.  I love all the detail and Alanna, you musta spent hours filling all the thermometers with those tiny beads!  Really a great card.

This is what you see when the card is opened!

And just a little close up to show you how she punched on the fold line so it created 2 hearts draped over the linen thread line.

More tomorrow!  C”mon back! Linda

    I just love the bird punch. This card is really neat. I can see many other cards using this punch for all seasons.
