No peeking (to the Ladies I swapped with...)

I'm not sure if my fellow swappers received their cards yet, so I hope I am not ruining their surprise! It's been awhile since I've posted something. I thought I could share the swaps I made before heading out-of-town for a few days. The hubby & I are celebrating our 10-year anniversary in Las Vegas! Stamp set: Cheep Talk
Paper: Pacific Point, Kiwi Kiss, WW, Good Morning Sunshine DSP
Ink: Only Orange, Kiwi Kiss, Pacific Point
Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch, Chocolate Chip Corduroy Buttons
Technique: You can't see it very well, but I did stamp the birds on Only Orange first on WW, then I stamped image again on scratch paper. I cut out the bodies and used dimensionals to pop-up the image.

Stamp set: A Good Egg
Paper: Green Galore, Tempting Turquoise, Barely Banana, Rainbow Sherbert DSP
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Apricot Appeal grosgrain ribbon, slot punch
Technique: I stamped the chick on DSP and cut-out the egg twice (one for the bird in the egg and one near the saying).

Stamp set: Fifth Avenue Floral
Paper: Rose Red, Kiwi Kiss, WW, Vellum
Ink: Rose Red, Kiwi Kiss (on vellum), Cameo Coral, Pretty in Pink
Accessories: Filigree designer brads, Pretty in Pink taffeta ribbon, circle punches

Stamp set: Thoughts & Prayers
Paper: Sage Shadow, Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip, Kraft
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Always Artichoke
Accessories: Boho Blossoms punch, gold brads, Twill tape, Scallop edge punch
