It's another release week at Flourishes, so I was determined to get a couple cards made to be in the running for the wonderful new stamps & products. I started with the Pinter-Inspiration here and used the gorgeous Medallion stamp set to make my shades of purple and green card. The cut out purple image is mounted with foam tape over the image stamped with VersaMark & clear embossed on the green panel with the scored edges. The greeting is cut out with Spellbinders Labels 9. I added gems, pearls & Stickles.
The second card is for the Front & Back challenge here using your focal image also for the background. I decided to make a card with the feel of spring using the Thinking of You set. I used my stamp positioner & clear embossed the image in each corner of a square of white card stock. Then I used one of my favorite techniques--emboss resist with Distress Inks scattered straw, shabby shutters & ripe persimmon. It's mounted to a piece of yellow shimmer card stock after I attached the green & yellow ribbon. The focal image is white embossed on the same shimmer card stock & cut out with Spellbinders Labels 22. I added Stickles to some of the flowers & 3 green pearls. Past my bedtime, so excuse the formatting--still figuring out things like that. Thanks to everyone who visits--I love hearing what you think.
