You Got This: Two Cards One Post!

Happy Thursday!  I am popping in with a couple of cards to share.  I am playing along with a couple of blog challenges.

For my first card I am playing along with Inspired by All the Little Things.  I loved all the tiny flowers.   I combined some DCWV floral and script papers to create the look. 

I used PTI A2 Noted:  Scallop Vertical die for the stitched layered rectangles.  I then die cut the Tag Sale #12 die and layered with the stitched circle.   I stamped the sentiment from Penned Elegance stamp set  using versafine onyx black ink.  I get perfect placement everytime with my Tim Holtz stamping platform.  

I used some foam tape to pop up the tag as well as the stitched circle.  I added some coordinating twine from my stash.  I layered these panels to an A2 Noted:  Scalloped Vertical die with  stampers select white card stock base.   I finished the card with a few clear sequins.

For my second card, I was just playing with paper.  I really love this blue floral that came in one of my DCWV paper pads.  I paired it with PTI Bitty Big: Dark Indigo striped for the scalloped edge background.  To get the scalloped edge I used the Noted:  Scalloped A2 die collection.  Instead of using it as the card base I cut one at the score line and added to a piece of stampers select white card stock.  

I used the Sentiment Splits:  Curved Vertical die to cut out the floral paper.  I like this because it allowed more of the striped background to peek through.  I used the Noted: Scalloped A2 die collection oval to die cut the Bitty Big:  Dark Indigo polka dotted pattern paper.  I layered the Big Basics: Thanks die using stampers select white card stock.  

I glued it to the oval and added some loose threading behind the oval. To finish the card, I added some Nuvo white crystal drops to the centers of the flowers for added dimension and detail.  

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
