Pretty in Pink - Two Cards from last week.

I've just arrived home from Brisbane late this afternoon where I have been since Thursday helping my mother and father pack up their home for the last 27 years to move down here to Casino to live.  So I thought today I would do a quick post to show that it hasn't been all housework and packing for me of late.  I still found some time to create.  And it was nice to spend some time to create something that wasn't for one of my Design Team Committments or challenges I am participating in.  Here is two cards I made last week.



The first card is using some of my leftover retired SU Papers from the Sweet Always and Candy Lane DSP.  The Sentiment is from Occasional Greetings and the Flower randomly stamped on my spellbinder cut circle from Sweet Summer (SAB) Stamp Set both from Stampin' Up!.  The Tie Dyed Flower is from Petaloo. 


This second card gives the appearance of inlaid embossing for the background, however I have simply stamped and coloured my image onto the cardstock and then embossed it.  I than sponged over the embossed panel with Old Olive Ink. 


The Dragon Fly is from the Natures Nest Stamp Set, the Sentiment from On Your Birthday and the flower on the background panel from the Sweet Summer (SAB) Stamp Set all from Stampin' Up!
