Making cards using scraps - my Convention Swaps

Just heading home from Stampin' Up! convention in Melbourne and it was a whole new experience for me. I learnt so much and met so many people I have seen as an online presence which was really nice. The US team who presented sessions were all very enthusiastic and energetic and so friendly. I do love the atmosphere of sharing - ideas, support, techniques and wisdom. The culture within the complany is quite amazing."Inspire, Create, Share"
I managed to complete a few swaps and thought I would share. 
I have quite a stash of leftover scraps as I am hopeless at throwing out things so have tried to create something that makes use of all those strips.
These are made using strips of various width crumb cake, all embossed with different folders and lightly sponged. There are some panels cut from the white heat embossed Hello Doilly stamp.( I am really sad that this is retiring soon, so get in touch if you want your own, it's a must have!)
I have adhered all the strips to a base and mounted those on black. I have added a range of ribbon or twine embellishments and a single small vanilla flower on each.(fun fact: the PetitePetals punch and coordinating stamp set is the best selling product from that catalogue)

With the larger of the leftover strips I created gift tags.
These were fun to make and a great use of scraps.
ThAnks for looking, Liz
