Oh Hello Swallow Tail

By | May 27, 2013

Hi Stampin' Friends

I must apologize – I forgot to mention the name of the winner for Hostess Code QUTKNGC3.  It's Alicia Gonzales and she won $50 in free product!  I'll have another hostess code for you in a couple of days.  I mean if you are going to order online anyway, you might as well use a hostess code because you just might win free merchandise.  Of course, if your order is over $150, don't use the code because over $150, you receive the hostess benefits.

I love the gorgeous plus size image that is the Swallow Tail.  And I've seen so many beautful cards made with this stamp – from vintage/shabby chic to modern/clean and simple.

Elegant Eggplant and Very Vanilla is one of my favorite combinations though I don't use it very often; but when I do, it reminds how much I love it! (go figure).  

I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest – that place is so full of gorgeous cards and I come away inspired.  The best way to find a card is to type in the stamp set name and you can add the type of card, i.e., shabby chic, vintage, bold, simple, etc.


The wing was stamped on the Elegant Eggplant Card Stock with Versamark.  I added White Emboss Powder and set with the Heat Tool.  The oval image was stamped off several times before stamping on Naturals Ivory Card Stock.  The sentiment was stamped with Elegant Eggplant Classic Ink.  The flowers are from the 5/8" Flower Trim and were lightly sponged with Elegant Eggplant.  The leaves (Subltes Collection Designer Series Paper Stack) are from the Bird Punch.

If you need any supplies, please visit my Stampin' Store for 24/7 service or if you like, send me your list and I'll place the order for you.  You can contact me at (479) 876-7453 or rachel@artisticdesignsbyrachel.com.
