Cut small panel of Basic Black cardstock then adhere a slightly smaller piece of the other side of the DSP. 4. Die cut Circles (1 in Black and a smaller on in Whisper White) 5. Stamp imsges on Whisper White piece and stamp and additional butterfly to punch out. 6. Punch some flowers and scatter around the card then add some bling to the punched butterfly. 7. Stamp sentiment in the corner. 8. Pop Black panels on dimensionals.

I'm Here for You

Work has been crazy but I have finally had a chance to practice with a new stamp set I received and let me tell you that it was a lot of fun. I love the colors and the flower and that ribbon is gorgeous. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.
I started with a Watermelon Wonder card base and adhered some patterned paper from Cherry on Top paper pack. I then wrapped a piece of Tip Top Taupe ribbon around the patterned paper panel.
On Whisper White cardstock I stamped the background stamp in Pool Party and then stamp the flower image in Watermelon Wonder. I inked the edges with Watermelon Wonder and stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. This panel was popped up on dimensionals and adhered to the the front of the card.
For the inside of the card I stamped the background image again on Whisper White card stock and another sentiment from the same stamp set. The envelope Punch board was used to round all of the corners.

An Open Heart with Park Lane

Hello and welcome to today's post.  The stamp set used is one of my favorites and the DSP just seemed to fit.  I didn't color the images because I wanted to create a soft feel to the card.  The colors used in the papers are Blackberry Bliss, Daffodil Delight, and Soft Suede and it's a color combination I never would have put together myself but they just work here.  Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.
