Bright What I Love

Black and white with a bright is one of my favourite colour combinations. I chose Daffodil Delight for the bright colour, but Melon Mambo would be fabulous, too!

On this card I used the 3-step floral images.

If you're going to stamp a sentiment on ribbon, it's best to use StazOn ink. However, it is a solvent based ink and can damage photo-polymer stamps.

What I Love Embossed Resist

Embossed Resist is a lovely technique to use with outline images.

I embossed the floral and leaf outline images from the What I Love Sale-A-Bration set with White embossing powder.

Then, I added ink with a sponge dauber. The embossing powder resists the ink and provides contrast to the images.

I CASEd the design from the Sale-A-Bration flyer and stepped it up with some layers and accessories.

I Love Gold Embossing

What I Love is my favourite Sale-A-Bration set! It has a versatile 3-step floral and leaves with a hand-drawn look. You can get if free when you order $60 during Sale-A-Bration,

I used just the outline image and a sentiment from Balloon Celebration embossed with Gold Embossing Powder on Thick White card stock

The gold foil card stock strip and the simple arrangement makes a simply elegant card.
