Today I have two cards to share with you and they are much softer & more elegant than the cards I shared yesterday.

Thank You
I added lots of glitter to this first card and I love how it turned out.

Jen Carter CP BFF Wonderful Wildflowers Thanks

I stamped the flowers from the new and beautiful Wonderful Wildflowers stamp set with Shea Butter, Tiara, It's a Girl & Rose Petals inks.  The gray flowers outline was stamped with Black Jack ink & the inside solid flower was stamped also with Black Jack ink after it had been stamped off on a piece of scrap paper first.  I die cut the doily with the Small Doily Die and then stamped the sentiment with the new Note of Thanks stamp set.

The centers of the flowers were embossed with Wow! Fool's Gold Embossing Glitter & Tsukineko Silver Embossing Powder.  I stamped the gorgeous new BFF Background stamp with VersaMark ink & then embossed it with Wow! Wanderlust Embossing Powder...LOVE this stuff!  I really like how the background glitters and yet it is still subtle.  It's so gorgeous in real life!  The card front is layered on top of a piece of Smoke & Mirrors cardstock.

Butterfly Thanks
This next card uses another new set of gorgeous dies with a butterfly theme.


Jen Carter CP Focus on Good Eat Sleep In Flight Scroll Butterfly

For this card I started by creating my own patterned papers.  I stamped the vines & flowers with stamps in the Focus on the Good stamp set using Black Jack, Polished, Mint to BeRose Petals & Shea Butter inks.  On a seperate piece of white cardstock I stamped the stripes with Black Jack ink using a stamp from the Eat, Sleep, Create stamp set.

I die cut both the Scroll Butterfly die & the In Flight Butterfly die out of Vellum and layered them on top of each other. I really like how these butterflies look layered in vellum! I used a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer pen to add some glitter to the center of the butterfly.  The sentiment is stamped with Mint to Be ink from one of the stamps in the Note of Thanks stamp set.

Keep Hopping
