I recently got a design from It is a swan made with a flower punch. It looks really difficult at first but it is so easy to do. I even cased her card. I am such a copier. Anyway I really loved this swan when I saw her card and couldn't wait to do it. So here you go. The leaves are a die I bought from The flowers are a stamp from Purple daisy designs. She is amish so you would have to call her to order. Telephone number is 717-597-8803. What is so great about these stamps is that you can use a five petal punch to punch them out. The purple paper is from Stampin Up that I embossed using an Cuttlebug embossing folder and I outlined the blocks of paper with my Gold leaf pen. The doily is a die I got from They will even make a custom made die for any of your stamps. How great is that.
