Several of us are also swapping cards, so we may see some sneak peeks of those cards, which is exactly what I've got for you:
stamp set - Teeny Tiny Wishes; ink - Certainly Celery, Gumball Green; card stock - Champagne Glimmer, Certainly Celery, Garden Green, Gumball Green (regular and Core'dinations); Big Shot with Apothecary Accents, Bitty Banners and Holiday Collection framelits and Fancy Fan, Lacy Brocade and Square Lattice textured embossing folders; Stampin' Sanding System, Stampin' sponge, Stampin' dimensionals
I had two different inspirations, one with three embossed trees in neutrals and one with the Apothecary Accent frame on a sanded textured Cherry Cobbler background, with a "note to self" that it might look nice in all green. I ♥love♥ how this turned out, with the sponged embossing on the lightest tree echoing the sanded embossing of the background. It's a bit Big Shot intensive, since each die cut piece and each embossing folder had to be cranked separately. To make 15 swap cards I calculated 249 passes through the Big Shot! Have I mentioned before that I don't think I could get along without my Big Shot?
Months ago I was playing with the Big Shot and my Mini Milk Carton die, which I convinced myself I *needed* after seeing so many cute ideas on Pinterest. I made this little ornament, based on one of those cute Pinterest ideas, and saved it for this hop, but almost forgot about it:
card stock: Silver Glimmer, Soft Suede, Gumball Green, Early Espresso Core'dinations, Crumb Cake; designer series paper - Be of Good Cheer; punches - Word Window, 1-1/4" scallop circle, Itty Bitty Shapes scallop circle, Scallop Edge border; Big Shot with Mini Milk Carton die and Holiday Collection framelit; Simply Scored tool, Dazzling Details silver & Cherry Cobbler, Cherry Cobbler Bakers twine, Victoria 5/8" crochet trim, Stampin' Dimensionals
