I have two creations I want to share with you today!  First up, this one:


 For this card, I first stamp the flowers onto the card stock with versamark ink and let it dry.  Decided I wanted a bit more pop so then stamped and using white embossing powder and outlines those ones with a very light grey copic marker W1).  I also took some of the leaves from this kit and stamped them onto vellum and heat embossed those with white too.  I like how the edges did for this, that you cant really see the cut edge after cutting out with the die because its vellum.   Cut a curve with a Spellbinders border die and added a piece of white doily on the back side to get this look on the bottom left edge.  All the other pretty obvious what I did...And now for my 2nd card...super quick distressed one!  :D





And since I had my embossing stuff out...I decided to emboss this flower too.  Clear embossing used on this one, then took a stamp pad (innocent pink) and stamped over the flower, which I did until I had a look I wanted then took a cloth and buffed off the flower.  Distressed the edges on this one and layered and all done!
