Swallowtail flies

Jems Bloghop: May: Retirement List.

Well it is with great sadness that I say goodbye to the wonderful swallowtail stamp. Sadly it is retiring this time and there are non left to order. Mine is wood mounted and the wood is well stained as it has been very well used.

This is todays make using bermuda bay and the Thick White card which allows this to be a single layer card.









The rhinestones look pink as they reflect back the colour of my iPad cover but they are the sparkly rhinestones!

If you are rushing off to see the next blog use these buttons, or if you have time scroll down and see some of my previous makes with the Swallowtail stamp.



  


My past makes. The butterfly box was the first workshop I ever ran. We had 12 people all decorating a box.








A special card for a special friend.












One of Amanda's fancy fold cards
