    I have five cards to share today.  My first two cards use  CZ Designs Chunky Flower background stamp.  along with Luck and Hugs stamps and dies. 


The first card mixes deep sea ink with soft navy ink.  I inked up the lighter shade first on the stamp, then the darker shade.  I used island blue card stock for the layered panel and the sentiment.  


For my second card, I again used  CZ Designs Chunky Flower background stamp.  along with Luck and Hugs stamps and dies.  This time I used shades of greens. 


I combined jelly bean ink, fern ink, and key lime ink.  I used green cardstock for the layered panel and the sentiment.  


For my third card, I again used the CZ Designs Chunky Flower background stamp.  I combined it with the Chunky Love You wafer die.   I stamped the chunky flower using versamark and clear embossed.  I added some gold metallic splatters.  

I combined clear embossing on black cardstock with the Chunky Love You wafer die and gold metallic kraft cardstock for the sentiment.  This sentiment wafer die has so many possibilities. I finished the card with a few clear sequins. 


For my fourth card, I used Thoughtful Flowers stamp set.  I masked the poppy stem flower and stamped to create a poppy bouquet.  I colored the flowers with Copic markers.  


I created a stitched frame to layer over the flowers using some foam tape.  I added some wink of stella to each poppy for some shimmer.  I finished the card with a few clear sequins.


For my last card, I used the Mermaid Scales stencil. I ink blended some soft yellow ink with some goldenlocks ink.  I added some gold metallic splatters.

For the butterfly, I used Comfort and Prayers stamp set with coordinating Comfort and Prayers die set.  I gold embossed the butterfly.  I added two black pearls to the top.  I used a sentiment from Luck and Hugs stamp set.


I hope you have enjoyed the cards I created for today. Which card is your favorite?

As always thanks so much for hopping by!
