I just love the Swallowtail stamp in the Spring Mini (which will also be carrying over into the 2013-14 Catalog). I love how you can decorate gift bags just by stamping it with various bright and happy colors onto the bag, add a bow and it’s done. But, I also love how it looks on cards. I’ve used it several times on cards and I’ve achieved various looks with it as you can see HERE and HERE.

Today I want to share a more somber look with Swallowtail. I stamped it with Early Espresso onto a panel of Very Vanilla card stock and then layered it onto a skinny mat of Elegant Eggplant. The sentiment from Love and Sympathy stamped with Elegant Eggplant. The base of the card is Crumb Cake with a crooked panel of Wisteria Wonder trimmed even.

The inside of the card is stamped with more images from Love and Sympathy . . . nice and easy and my customers can count on this card being on the board for my May and June Card Buffets. If you are local to the Twin Cities area and would like more information about my Card Buffet, just click HERE.

Have a wonderful day and thank you so much for stopping by Stamping to Share! My daughter graduates from high school today so we are busy cleaning for the big party that we are having tomorrow to celebrate her accomplishments.
