I love the Swallowtail stamp. It’s size makes it perfect for filling up a whole card front, and the fact that it’s a butterfly makes it great for the ‘flutter’ effect. My ‘flutter’ was achieved by cutting along the right edge of the butterfly, to create a sculpted edge. The sentiment is stamped on what would be the inside of the card, but since the front is cut away, you can see it even when the card is closed.
With all the hype about the new Stampin’ Up! Blendabilities, I have been inspired to do some colouring of my own. But since I wasn’t allowed to buy *EVERYTHING* from the new Stampin’ Up! catalogue, I’ve had to be content with my colour tools of choice being Stampin’ Write Markers. Not that it’s any kind of compromise – they colour like a dream and no blending required. I used the new in-colours, since my love affair with all things Blackberry Bliss continues!
