I hope you made your way here from Jessie's Blog! If not, please head on over to Jessica's Blog and start the hop from the beginning!!
Today, the Trendsetters are sharing not one, but two new sets with you, Dance and Beautiful Spring! I adore both of these!!
For my first card, I used Dance. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this saying..."Dance as if no one is watching, Laugh, it's medicine for the soul, Love like you've never been hurt, Love like it's Heaven on earth". Isn't that gorgeous!! This set also has some lovely floral images, but I wanted this saying as my focal point. The layout is my sweet pal Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch, SSSC57, and I started by stamping the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock. I stamped the leaves from Dance in Memento New Leaf behind the sentiment for some interest, and used Circle Nestabilities to cut it out.
All the patterned paper is from Origins by Basic Grey, and I finished off my card with some luscious wide Black Silk Ribbon and I added Taylor's Tiny Twinkles to bling it up a bit!!! I used a different stitch on my sewing machine for this card and it actually looks like scallops...pretty cool!
My second card features Beautiful Spring!! I had so much fun making this card! The layout is Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge, MTSC62 and I started by stamping the flowers in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream and colored them with Copic Markers. It didn't photograph at all, but I added some shimmer with a Spica Clear Glitter Pen to the flowers.
The paper is Ooh La La by My Minds Eye and I added some stitching, pearls and silk ribbon to this one!!! The sentiment, "Take time to smell the flowers" was stamped on a die cut from Ooh La La and I love how it looks!!!
