I have two cards to share with you today - one from each of the featured sets. First, a card from Theresa's Vine and Butterfly...
I used a Fresh Asparagus card base for this card and layered it with a piece of patterned paper from the Autumn Wishes pack. I stamped a strip of Prickly Pear cardstock with the vine image and ran it through a woodgrain embossing folder, then layered it behind my main image panel. The two butterflies are stamped with Prickly Pear ink and then I rolled the edges in Fresh Asparagus ink to give them a two toned look. I used Versamark and white embossing powder for the sentiment.
I used some two tone stamping on this card featuring Melanie's new Triple Play Holiday set as well. After inking the flower with Versamark ink and then Dark Chocolate ink, I used clear embossing and some heat to make it stand out. I then inked the sentiment in Faded Brick and rolled the edges in Dark Chocolate ink before I stamped it. Do you recognize the layout? I used it for the set of three Friday Funday cards HERE. Isn't it amazing? From whimsical to elegant!!
