Convention ‘09 Paradise Swap


Paradise… what a lovely place to visit!  Errr.. aghh…   I meant what a lovely stamp set!  The stamp set features five solid image leaf stamps, and was a must have the moment I saw the new Idea Book & Catalog!  Of course, I had to use this lovely stamp in a swap too!



     Paradise (#113778 /$20.95)

     Heard from The Heart (# 111644 /$22.95)

Card Stock (8.5”  x 11”)

     Summer Sun (#103124 /  $5.50)

     Always Artichoke (#105119 / $5.50)

     Rich Razzleberry (#115316 /$5.50)

Classic Ink ($5.95 each):

     Rich Razzleberry (#115658)

     Always Artichoke (#105219)

     Crushed Curry (#115659)


     Stamping Sponges (#101610 /$3.50/3qty)

     Rich Razzleberry PolkaDot Ribbon (#115613/$9.95 /15yds)

     Mini Glue Dots (#103683 /$3.95)

Card Cutting

  • Always Artichoke 4.25 x 11”, scored at 5.5”
  • Rich Razzleberry 5.25 x 4”
  • Summer Sun 5” x 3.75”

This was a very quick and simple card you can easily make!  One pack of each cardstock along with one roll of ribbon will easily yield 48 cards!


  • Stamp the broad leaf image with Always Artichoke ink  randomly across the bottom 1/3 of the Summer Sun Card Stock.
  • Stamp the berry image using rich razzleberry ink, randomly between the artichoke leaf images.
  • Stamp greeting from Heard from the Heart stamp set across the top 1/3 of the card, slightly to the left.
  • Sponge Crushed Curry Ink onto stamped images and around edges of Summer Sun Cardstock
  • Layer Summer Sun stamped cardstock onto Rich Razzleberry layer using two way adhesive, or double sided tape.
  • Tie a knot in your Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot ribbon (closer to the loose end of the ribbon).  Turn so that polka dots are not shown and cut from roll so that you have enough ribbon to wrap around the edges of the cardstock layers.
  • Add a mini glue dot to the back of the knot, and two cut ends of the ribbon, and affix to card front layers.
  • Attach to card fold-over for a completed card!
