The stamps used for this card are from Stampin Up. I had actualy found some paper that looked like chicken wire which worked perfectly with the design. Yellow paper is from Lasting Impressions. I don't think it needs much more explanation.
Thanks for looking. (I may be gone the next couple of days so it may be Friday before I can post a new card. We're taking two granddaughters to the Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo.)

The main part of the card was made with Powdered Sugar cardstock from Lasting Impressions and embossed on the right border with a CB folder.
The next day I put one of the Nestabilities rectangles on the card and masked off the rest of the area around the die. I sponged some VersaColor Boysenberry ink into the rectangle. Then I attached the Flower Soft Vase according to the directions and inserted the flowers I had made the night before.
I stamped the sentiment on a rectangle and then sponged the Boysenberry ink around the edges.
Thanks for looking.............

The cardstock is from Lasting Impressions. I stamped the image on a piece of Snickerdoodle paper, and then sponged some of the Bamboo VersaColor ink to give a softer look to the layer. The green layer is called "Thyme - Solid".
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll come back soon.

While several friends met in June, Harriet showed us how to use this technique of adding some highlights with a white gel pen. I'm not sure I did it justice, but this is what I came up with. :)
The image is from Stampin Up. All inks are available through me.

I dry embossed the cupcake with a stencil from Lasting Impressions. As you can see I used separate colors for each portion of the cupcake. I pieced the shapes together and adhered them to a circle which had been made with a Marvy Uchida scalloped circle punch and run my through my Cuttlebug. The white layer was also done with a Cuttlebug folder and then mounted on a "Seaside" Lasting Impressions card stock.
The nice thing about paper piecing with dry embossed shapes is that you don't have to color anything and the card can be assembled very quickly.
