I started out by inking the background stamp with Rasberry Fizz ink and I just love how the background came out!! Way too cool! Once I started stamping with Sweet Blush, I got the idea to use the big Damask flourish as the centerpiece, but cut out and popped up with bling. Using the direct to paper technique, I added some Rasberry Fizz to the sides of the card itself before adding the gem stickers and the metal faux brad stickers.
For my second card of the the night, I stamped the background flourish in Ocean Tides ink; then stamped one of the smaller flourishes in Sweet Blush. I'm in love with the Ocean Tides background look as well and will definitely be using that background again! Stamped the tulip twice on white cardstock and direct to papered Aqua Mist around the edges of one panel before popping up on All Night Medial pop dots. Cut out the second tulip and then popped it up on Stampin Up dimensionals.
I'm really happy with the way both of these cards turned out especially with how I've been feeling lately. My migraines have been getting worse and lasting longer for some reason. Thank goodness I see the neurologist on Monday for them. In the meantime, I'll keep myself occupied with stamping.
