Card I've Made For Swaps

I have been on a card making frenzy before I have to put away my stuff! I have in total made 6 cards per swap for 5 swaps...and 9 more I need to knock off before I even THINK of signing up for more. Plus I'm going broke on postage stamps because I have to put gas in my car...at $4.27 a GALLON!!! I may have to sell my body to the night just to fill up my car...LOL...which is a very big gas gusling Expedition! YIKES! Anywho...on to the cards!

This card here is for a swap called Gaudy Goodness! I don't know what I was thinking when I signed up...maybe that I wanted to be a friend to a new hostess by the name of sbailiff who joined 2 of my swaps I hosted...it's called payback! Anywho...I tried and I tried and I tried some more to make non matching cards...but go so upset when I couldn't make anything "non matching and ugly" LOL! So I resorted to this when my SIL came to mind. She's always wearing outrageous bright colors and carried a "goldish" Coach bag. She's "extravagant" in colors...but I don't know if that would qualify as gaudy. Anywho...let me know what you think! Rubber stamp is from Rubber Necker colored in using Prismacolor markers.
This one here is for a "For The Girls" swap hosted by Tdean at SCS as well. I am SO loving those Rubber Romance divas and I can't get enough of them! This diva is all blinged out and ready to hit the town and be FABULOUS!!! She is colored in with Prismacolor markers as well. DP is Rockstar by DCWV and her bling is Icicle stickles. What a hottie huh?
This one here is for the "Let's Polka" swap. You have to use ANY kind of "polka dots". I decided to use my newly arrived Tart & Tangy set from SU and their DP. The strawberry was stamped twice...once in RRed and the other in GGreen. I trimmed the leaves and stem to piece it. Then I Versamarked the tip of the strawberry using the Versamark pen and sprinkled it with Gel-A-Tins Chocolate Bliss EP and heat set it...the smell was YUMMILICIOUS!!! To go along with the polka dot theme...I did some dots on the scalloped punch and the scalloped edges. Looks yummy huh?
This one I made for a "Birthday" swap. It was yet another payback for the hostess...Angs...joining my swaps. Plus...I could use some birthday cards when I can't whip one out at the last minute. With this card, I decided to try again what I learned from Beate...using partial CB embossing and embossing a line with the Scor-Pal. I like to pick up new things...fortunately I did good with this one...lol...I can't say that with other techniques. The bottom part of the cake was embossed with Gel-A-Tins Chocolate Bliss EP and man that smell that lingered in my craft room for a while was HEAVEN!!! LOL!
And last but not least...I made another set of cards for a swap...unfortunately I can't post it here as I don't want to get flagged!!! It's for a swap called the Dirty Shank hosted by jessthenurse over at SCS. This swap is NOT for the easilly offended...and I made mine somewhat offensive and if the owner of Rubber Romance or Kristi of Hanna stamps comes across it...lol...I wouldn't want then to feel ashamed I made THAT card with their stamps. HOWEVER...if you're not weak and want to see it...email me and I'll forward the pic. WARNING though...it is a bit "graphic" on the sentiment...but the images are tame. Just to let you know...Mikey is in the tub with Babs! ;) That's ALL I'll reveal! :P
