These two cards are my version of cards that are in the new Stampin' Up! IB&C. The Dear Friend card uses the set Eastern Influences and the Hostess set Dear Friend. Cardstock is Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Very Vanilla. Ink is Certainly Celery and I have pop dotted the extra leaves with one layer of dimensionals and the flower with a double layer. The flower has Crystal Effects and Dazzling diamonds. I also sponged the torn edge with Certainly Celery and used the same color grosgrain ribbon. The other set of tools used was the paper piercing tool in the crafters tool kit.
The other card uses Bird on a Branch. I have used the Faux Felt tutorial from Technique Junkies on this card. Garden Green, So Saffron and Very Vanilla cardstock. Basic Brown, Garden Green and Certainly Celery are the inks used. I really like the new Designer Papers from Stampin' Up! and the background on this card is fromFlock Together. I used the paper piercing tool on the background paper for this card.
