New Cards

Chalking is such a fun technique for cardmaking. I first stamped the hydrangea stamp using versamark ink. Then you go over the ink with chalk. It gives it such a soft look. I added the verse over the flower. The purple background is embossed using the birds and swirls embossing folder for the cuttlebug. I've really been doing a lot of cuttlebug embossing lately. It's such a fast and easy thing to do. The stamps for this card are from Paper Inspirations.
This card was made with stamps all from The Stamp Pad Co. found here. I did a z-fold card, done just by folding the front back partway. I punched the back layer with the fiskars threading water punch. Just love that one! I added glitter pen to all the details and words. Just a little added sparkle and sweetness.

I embossed again on this card. I used the swiss dots and birds and swirls folders on white paper and adhered them to a white card. It gives such a soft elegant look. The couple is stamped and colored and then I went over the dress, veil, and flowers with glue pen and glitter. I matted the image with pearlescent paper. Added a green strip and a pearl brad and it's complete. I love how simple it is but yet elegant.
