Faith in Nature

This verse is from the Faith In Nature set that is a hostess set.  If you love this saying as much as I do, you better hurry because it will be gone June 1st!  If you missed out on the sneak peak of Bright Blossoms set, Daffodil Delight Seam Binding, and Summer Smooches DS don't worry, it will be available in the new catalog June 1!

It is hard to tell straight on but this uses my favorite combination, White on White.  I layer white on a white card base by using Dimensionals to pop it up off the base.  I also used dimensionals to pop the flowers up.

Stamp Set(s) - Bright Blossoms, Faith in Nature
Card Stock - Whisper White, Summer Smooches DS
Ink - Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry

Accessories - Daffodil Delight Seam Binding, Dimensionals, 1-1/4" Circle Punch, 1-3/8" Circle Punch, Rhinestones

Wisteria Daisy

This card I used for some of my Easter cards and then I left a bunch blank for last minute needs.  The Upsy Daisy set is retiring so make sure to get it fast!  I stamped the flowers once in Wisteria Wonder and then, with the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig I stamped the flowers again, just slightly lower in Elegant Eggplant.  I used the Crop-A-Dile (that is also retiring) to make a hole through the layers so that I could attach the ribbon.

Stamp Set(s) - Upsy Daisy
Card Stock - Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant, DS Patterned Pack In Color 11-13
Ink - Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant
Accessories - Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, Crop-A-Dile, Wisteria Wonder Ruffled Ribbon
