Cruisin' Swap Madness: Part 1

Share |
Okay gang... it's time to fess up to just HOW MANY freakin' swaps I have signed up for again for this year's Stampin' Up! cruise.

Now, you must understand something first and foremost: swaps are supposed to be optional. There's is no one holding a gun to your head saying that you must stamp yourself silly and near-blind the week before your so-called vacation, and make a bazillion swaps. Nope, no one at all.

No one but me.

So I thought I'd kick off this final week before I leave with sharing the masochism that is my cruise-swap-addiction!

Today's featured card is for Amy Celona's card swap. I opted for a Dahlia-fold centre flower, multiple layers, a Paisley celery-on-celery background, and then a custom coloured ribbon slide to go on my grosgrain ribbon. I hope you like it!

I got the idea on colouring in the ribbon slides from the ever-talented Patty Bennett. I just mixed a few drops of re-inker into a puddle of Crystal Effects, stirred it up and then "painted" the insides of my slides using the tip of a lead pencil. Total time is about 15 seconds per slide once you're in a groove, so it's actually pretty easy. A BTDT tip for you: the slides dry darker, so go lighter on the dye reinker if you need to adjust it.

Okay, so according to today's log we're at:

30 Cardfronts

Let's see where the count gets up to when I add in some crazy glitter heart cards tomorrow!

Countdown to NYC/Bermuda...6 more days!


Very beautiful! Thanks for sharing! I will try and post my WOW swap (that I am still frantically working on) before I leave as well!
Love this card Caroline,
