Bootiful Occasions

Well, I've saved my favorite card swap for convention for last.   Have you seen this fun NEW stamp set yet???  Bootiful Occasions (pg 50).

This one deserves a larger photo (since my photography lacks a lot)!  If you look closely, I combined basic black, bravo burgundy, cajun craze and white for a halloween look.   I punched out circles from black, white and cajun card stocks and adhered them to a piece of bravo burgundy card stock.  Then I ran that piece through the Big Shot using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder (pg 189).  This technique is called Embedded Embossing.  The rest is pretty self explanatory.  The "have a Wicked halloween" is from the Wicked Cool stamp set (pg 28).  and, I just love the 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon (pg 173).  

Convention only a few weeks away.  Cannot wait -- still need a little time to finish my swaps!
