Swap card

I am such a cheater. This is yet another variation on a theme; this time I’ve rehashed these cards. I’ve made several of these for a swap with some other Stampin’ Up! demonstrators.

This time I stamped the two Pocket Silhouettes images using Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive and layered them on to Bashful Blue and Old Olive. The strip of Designer Series Paper is from the Summer Picnic collection, layered onto a strip of Bashful Blue with a distressed edge. I wasn’t sure if the button and ribbon were an embellishment too far but now I think I like them.

Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes
Cardstock: Bashful Blue, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White
Paper: Summer Picnic
Ink: Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue
Accessories: Scallop Square punch, ¼” Grosgrain Ribbon - Pumpkin Pie, Earth Elements buttons, white cotton, white gel pen

  1. Beautiful!! Love the colors and your image.

  2. Very pretty! I'm liking all your variations of this layout.

    You're also starting to make me wonder if I really do need Pocket Silhouettes... (like I don't already have about oodles of other floral stamp sets already...)


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.
