Convention Swaps?

So...the Stampin' Up! Annual Inspire, Create, Share event is being held in July and I NEED SWAPS!

I figured I should get off my duff and get going on creating some swap ideas.  I have signed up for several organized swaps and since I have many new sets from the new Annual Catalog (see link to the right or click HERE) that I can choose from, there should be no excuse!

I spent some time in the classroom this morning and have come up with this idea...presented in a couple of different ways...

I love this cute little Koala and thought it would be fun to paper pierce him.  I chose some Designer Series Paper from the Neutrals family, stamped him and "fussy cut" him out.  I stamped the whole stamp on a piece of Whisper White, then using Dimensionals, I popped the cut-out up on top.  (SECRET TIP: then I don't have to worry about coloring him in!)

The arrows are the punched out pieces that are the result of using the Chevron border punch, adhered with a spot of the liquid Tombow glue.  

One design uses the Ovals framelits, and the other uses the Scallop Tag punch.  And I can't decide which I like the best!  Give me your thoughts!
