Stamping Sunday

I've been busy today, I started off by cleaning and re-organizing my entire stamping area, something I desperately needed to do... everything was starting to flow off my shelves and onto the floor. After that was done I made a few cards.

Unfortunately the pictures don't do any justice to these cards and none of them turned out the way I envisioned. Fortunately I'm extremely happy with all three of them.

It's hard to tell in the picture, but I stamped the blossoms on the background and popped the top layer up with dimensionals. There is also some doodling on the cocoa bordering the vanilla layer. I still don't have that darn ticket punch so I used my scallop punch on the corners.

I normally don't use pastels that often, but I guess I was in the mood when I started this card. I sponged on pastels to the top layer and water colored the flowers. The plum and vanilla layer is popped up with dimensionals.

Last card of the night. I love this color combo! I popped the flowers with dimensionals, guess I'm addicted to that today! I stitched a row of thread across three of the layers and pierced holes below that then added the ribbon, I really like the way it looks. The dots on the scallops were done with my marker. Enjoy.
