Triple Time Swallowtail

After all the boiler fitting, replacement window fitting, washing machine and vacuum cleaner repairs I thought this week might start getting bback to normal. How wrong could I be? After all the hot weather yesterday it definitely changed. We had a torrentisal downpour yesterday evening with thunder and lightening, and I do mean torrential. The rain came down so hard that it was running down the road like a river and of course the drains couldn't cope. Result a flooded garage - the water was about an inch deep and very close to coming in the utility room door. It was just high enough to cause the freezer to blow all the electrics in the house! Fortunately a very nice lady at the Electricity emergency line talked me through getting it all back on again.  Now that it has all dried out I've turned the freezer back on and it seems to be working OK thank goodness. So no food lost!

Anyway to get back to card making I made this card a little while ag ofor a friend's birthday and as it has now passed I can show it here.

I used the gorgeous large swallowtail stamp and the triple time stamping technique. The colours are strawberry slush and early espresso.

The ribbon is cherry cobbler seam binding which blended in well as I didn't have any matching pink ribbon.

I added a bit of decoration to the inside as well with a butterfly from Papillon Potpourri and a sentiment from Bring on the Cake.


  1. This is tremendous, Sue! So well executed! That swallowtail was made for triple-time stamping!

  2. The ribbon is perfect and the Swallowtail stamp perfect for this technique! Love it! You have certainly had a run of bad luck. Now maybe it'll turn around and you'll have a string of good luck. Lucky your freezer still works.
