Heres a card that I've made for my old neighbour, Julie.  Thats old as in ex-neighbour, not old in age.

The main background is stamped from Everything Eleanor and Lucky Limeade ink.

The band is from Summer Smoohes DSP.  The pleated ribbon is now retired.  Ive drawn faux stitching along the sides of the band using a Rich Razzleberry pen.

The bigger centre is cut from Rich Razzleberry paper.

The centre is stamped using Apothecary Art Stamp and cut using the matching Framelit dies.  The centre frame is coloured using an Aqua Painter pen (cross between a paint brush and a pen).  The pen was dipped in Rich Razzleberry ink to colour the flowers.  Some have a small pearl in the centres.

The greeting is from the Apothecary Art stamp set and cut out free hand

This Times Swaps

I have a SU training day coming up where we swap samples / ideas, as well as learning about the products and techniques.

These are my 'swaps' which are all based on a folded Bigz die called Two Tags.   The images show the folded and unfolded tag.  I'll not add blurb on all the inks, stamps and papers used.  If you want to know any of the combinations, ask in the comments.
