May Arts + Core'dinations + Stampendous!

Welcome to Day 3 of the hop! :)
For my first card I used the Stampendous Cling Dream Text
stamp on whitewashed Core'dinations paper & heat embossed
with Stampendous Detail Clear embossing powder
 The tag was cut with my cricut & the reverse side of the
whitewash paper provides the pink lining. Stickles were used for
the flower center.
I KNOW you're loving that gorgeous bow! That's May Arts'
 Rose Silky Crush ribbon. YUMMO! The tag is tied on with the
The Core' Sand-it gadget was used for distressing.
 This next card is honestly stunning in person. It's probably in bad
taste to say that, but it's true. ;)
More of the Core' whitewash & this time the
Stampendous jumbo cling poppy was used. This is a large image &
I couldn't bear to cut any off so this is a 5x7" card!
 I used some purple pigment ink & again embossed with the
 Stampendous detail clear powder. I then watercolored the image with
 the same purple ink & used black marker on the center.
 The scroll image was stamped with versamark & heat embossed
May Arts black velvet corduroy was used to anchor the image, and
the chevron twill in mauve matched the paper perfectly.
I distressed the edges & used more of the whitewash paper as my
card base.
