Creative Elements

Hi everyone!

I am patiently awaiting the arrival of this stamp set, but got the chance to use it while I was at my "mini retreat/PJ party" this weekend. I hope you like these cards as much as I do!

This card has quite a few techniques on it including ribbon scrunching, punch art and creating flowers. I love the way they all tie in together.
Card Recipe:
Stamp: Creative Elements
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla
Ink: Early Espresso, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler
Punches: Scallop Circle, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border, Modern Label
Tools: Crimper
Big Shot: Blossom Party Originals Die, Petals-a-Plenty Embossing Folder
Embellishments: Basic Pearls
Ribbon: Very Vanilla 1/2" Seam Binding
Other: Shimmer Paint

For this card I've used the rock n roll technique to give the butterfly a gorgeous effect.
Card Recipe:
Stamp: Creative Elements
Cardstock: Old Olive, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla
Ink: Early Espresso, Marina Mist

...and last, and most certainly least. I just couldn't get this card right. According to the colour coach, these are complimentary colours, but I had to go back over the Pretty in Pink and stamp with Chocolate Chip! The flower pots are made from the Round Tab Punch and are quite cute, but all in all, not happy with this one.
