The first card that I made and am sharing is Melanie's Wild at Heart. It is so beautiful - I love it.
I stamped the image on Pure Luxury Onyx Black with Versamark and then used a brush to brush some Pearl Ex on it. It is layered onto Ivory and the base is Bubblegum Pink. I then put some pink pearls on it and a simple word tag. The ribbon is a light pink with gold thread through it from Gina K. Both pictures are the exact same card but one is on a black background and the other on a white background and angled in the light. Isn't that cool?
The second preview I made with a new set by Nina called Grand Damask. It is amazing! Such a wonderful image and the possibilities are endless!
I stamped the damask image on Pure Luxury ivory with Memento black. I also stamped an image on some other small blossom shaped papers to make the flower. The ribbon is just some black organdy and I added the button and a gem flourish. I used a Cuttlebug folder on the Pure Luxury Turquoise Sea panel.
My final card for tonight is made using a set that you will turn to again and again! It is a must have for everyone! It is also from Nina and is called Fanciful Tags.
If you like to use the Spellbinders tags you will love this and if you don't you will still love it because you do not have to have them. The many phrases are fantastic. I made this card using Pure Luxury Ivory, Kraft, and Fresh Asparagus. I also used the Basic Grey Capella paper pack. I had the wonderful lace to go along with it. I stamped the background of the green panel with the Grand Damask set by stamping off once to create a faint image.
