Dear Friend - Pretty Amazing




Two stamp sets are used in the Dear Friend Card. I love flower sets and Flower Fancy is no exception. Stamped the main background flower on Shimmery Cardstock in Chocolate Chip filled it in with Baja Breeze and then stamped another and cut it out, popped dotted it over the first. I then used the direct to paper method to add color to the edges. I love using the photo corner punch and did it on all the layers for this card. Base card is Kraft, layers include Chocolate Chip and the new Designer Specialty Parisian Breeze. Chocolate Chip Grosgrain ribbon at the side. I am debating on adding some glitter to the center of the flower. What do you think???
Here is another card Using Technique Junkies Faux Felt. Actually this is the other half of the piece used on a previous card. All products Stampin' Up! I love this new Designer Paper Parisian Breeze which is one of their new Specialty line papers. Nice subtle texture with them. I even did one of the hummingbirds using the paper. The wings have Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds but you can't really see how it stands out in the photo. I had originally done this with only 2 hummingbirds but decided I needed a third. I put up both photos so you can see it really does look better with 3. Basicly this is the same card stock as the previous one. The set used for this one is Pretty Amazing with the addition of Striped Grosgrain Ribbon in Baja Breeze which is knotted in the center.

Hope you have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting!

These are gorgeous Cheryl! I love the birds with the glittery wings! It looks good both ways, but I agree, it does look better with 3. Great layouts and colors! TFS!
