Mouthwatering - 2012 All Sets Canadian Swap
My first ever swap! I often see swaps, but they are always in the states and I never wanted to commit to one because of the length of time for them to get there by mail. So when Wanda Dodds, a fellow Canadian demonstrator organized one I decided to JUST DO IT! I got back 18 different cards to help inspire and motivate!
I love the Mouthwatering set! I had already stamped the popsicles with the old felt stamp pads, but decided to try out the new foam ones and they stamped so bright and clear! I did use the Melon Scented Embossing Powder; smelled good enough to eat LOL!
The photo below has a slight variation. I did the card in a class of teenage girls and I wanted to simplify the process, so I used the Tasteful Trim die in place of the Seam Binding Ribbon.
In the first photo I used the Woodgrain background stamp to make the sticks - had to keep all products current for this swap! However, I just used the retired wood sheets for the second one.

That's probably the last I'll see of popsicles under the spring!
