My Favorite Things



The Fifth Avenue Floral Stamp Set is quickly becoming one of my favorite things. I love the large flowers that are great for creating backgrounds(see the card I posted on May 22nd), and I really like how the image pops when it is embossed, as seen in today's cards. I don't know which card I like better. The first one I made by using Versa Mark Ink to stamp the image all over a piece of Whisper White Cardstock and embossing it with White Embossing Powder and my Heat Tool. I then took my brayer and rolled over the images in Pumpkin Pie ink. As you can see the embossed images did not pick up the ink which really made them stand out. I layered this on top of another piece of Whisper White Cardstock, and used Pumpkin Pie Cardstock as my base. A piece of Whisper White Organza ribbon and the sentiment finished the card. I looked at it for awhile and then thought I would try one doing the same steps but instead of a whole layer of flowers I cut two out and placed them on a piece of Whisper White Cardstock. I thought it needed just a bit more color so I added the Photo Corners in Chocolate Chip Cardstock, and placed this layer on Kraft Cardstock and Pumpkin Pie Grosgrain Ribbon, another one of my favorite things. As you can see you get two totally different looks. Let me know which one is your favorite. And as always, have fun experimenting because you never know what you may come up with!
