Ok, so I remade these samples and they are using all SU product. If you go to this post I tell you where I got the rose tutorial from.
These pictures are much better. Lighting was better. This one is made in Rose Red and uses Soft Suede cardstock too. I really like the way it turned out. I am giving a class on these this weekend.
Here is the Baja Blue one. I really enjoyed making these and even have another one to post that does not look anything like these. I will try and post that one tomorrow.
