I used Hero Arts Stamps - Butterflies for the main image, Sat it all for the sentiment- and heat embossed them with white powder on vellum. I dry embossed the card base with a Cuttlebug embossing folder Victoria. To the panel with the embossed vellum pieces I added some pearls, and ribbon and then took 8 photos before I was okay with the picture. I am submitting this one to A2Z's February Challenge - Embossing.
Since I still had this stamp out, I wanted to try it for CAS-ology's cue card Monochrome. These clean and simple cards are so hard for me.
My last card is the third of three that I need for a swap in early March. I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches for inspiration.
My first task was to mask off that diagonal stripe area, I added Tiny Leaves with embossing paste colored with lime green glimmer mist over the Gormet Rubber Stamps stencil. I added some Distress Glitter in White Rock Candy over the stenciled leaves.
While that dried, I stamped and colored with Copic's my main image from Newton's Nook Basket of Wishes stamp set. I put together several words from that set, and Newton's Nook set Simply Sentimental to get my sentiment. I die cut my main image circle using MFT's stitched circles.
I wanted to tie in the yellow just a bit more so I added a bit of yellow ric rac over the embossing paste leaves, The panel when complete was mounted on some Certainly Celery Stampin Up cardstock. I added just a bit of clear Wink of stella to the bow and the eggs, and then covered that with glossy accents.
