Avant-Garden Thank You Card

I can't believe that Sale-a-bration is almost over (Friday, March 31st,) and this is the first time I've used this flower from Avant-Garden. But it works perfect for the Stampin' Up! Only Challenge, A Favorite April Theme. I think flowers speak April, don't you? You can play along too: http://suochallenges.com/

So I started casing Kimberly Van Diepen's card, but really my card looks nothing like hers. The only thing that is the same is the stamped flowers and the wash behind the flowers, everything else is different. I love when you can make it your own. I really did love her version which is why I saved it on Pinterest.
I started off with a wash of Crumb Cake using my Aqua Painter onto Shimmery White Cardstock. Then I stamped the flower in Versamark Ink and embossed with Black Embossing Powder, (I embossed the sentiment too). Colored in the flowers with the Pool Party Marker and the leaves with Pear Pizzazz. I spattered Clear Wink of Stella and Pool Party by flicking the ink using the inside of the lid.

The sentiment is die cut with the smallest circle of the Stitched Shapes Framelits. I added some Black Thread behind the sentiment and popped up with Dimensionals. Before adhering the sentiment, I wrapped the Pool Party Stitched Ribbon around the top layer and added that small piece of Doily on the right. Then adhered the Pool Party layer. That layer I used more Dimensionals to pop it up on the Thick Whisper White Card Base.

Can you see all the sparkle?

Cutting Guide:

4 1/4" x 11" Thick Whisper White Cardstock, scored at 5 1/2"
3 3/4" x 5" Shimmery White Cardstock
3 7/8" x 5 1/8" Pool Party

Dragonfly Dreams Congratulations Card

My friend Patty Bennett just promoted to Platinum. This is a BIG deal people. Patty is also the leader of our Luv2stamp group. So proud of her and all her hard work. I was going to give this to Patty last week and she was sick so I sent it to her. She was really surprised.
The first layer of my card is embossed with the Falling Petals Embossing Folder. Do you see the Doilies on the right side? Each piece has 3 "humps" and you only need 1 Doily. Make sure your Doilies don't go beyond the card base (4 1/4") or you won't be able to put it in an envelope.
Then I layered a piece of the 5/8" Organza Ribbon and Silver Sequins. For the ribbon I took a 6" piece and put a strip of Tear and Tape down the center, then pleated, so back and forth, added another piece of Tear and Tape down the center of that and put my row of Silver Sequins.
I die cut the Dragonflies from Vellum and Silver Foil Paper and layered them together with Glue Dots. Don't worry about the Glue Dots showing because you will add some Pearls to cover them up. To add the Silver Thread, I added a couple of Glue Dots added the thread and then cut up some Dimensionals to put on the back and laid that down over part of the ribbon like in the photo.

The congratulations is from the stamp set, So In Love and stamped in Black Archival Ink. I used the Classic Label punch to punch it out. Added Dimensionals to the back and a couple of Pearls on each side.

I also made her a Doily Tag like HERE! and used the Dragonflies instead of the Life Me Up Balloons. I can't believe I forgot to take a photo of it......but I layered like in the card.

Cutting Guide:

4 1/4" x 11" Thick Whisper White cardstock, scored at 5 1/2"
4" x 5 1/4" thick Whisper White cardstock
3" x 4" Vellum and Silver Foil Paper die cut with the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits
