General swaps and shoebox swap

These are a few of my general swaps.

This one is made with Zoofari. I used not quite navy, pumpkin pie, and certainly celery, vanilla and kraft paper. Black, pumpkin pie, and certainly celery inks. I used blender pens and the ink pads to color the birds. This card is made with the So Cool stamp set. I used Ballet Blue, sage shadow, and real red markers and paper as well as vanilla paper. It looks fairly simple, but required lots of coloring on the stamp.
This card is using the spotlight technique. I created this card a while back for my club and decided to change the colors and make it for swap. I use bashful blue, real red, pink pirouette, and whisper white paper. I also used the blender pen and pink pirouette reinker to color the highlighted flowers. I used wonderful words for the greeting and pink taffeta ribbon. Obviously the 1 3/8 and 1 1/4 circle punches.
This is a 3D shoebox swap I am doing with my housemates. I have never done a shoebox swap, so I feel it is inadequate. Hopefully it will be okay. It is a milk carton made of cardstock. I used riding hood red paper and ink and vanilla paper. I used Heartfelt thanks stamps and watercolor joy wheel. I also used scallop and circle punches. The carton will be filled with Jelly Bellies.
