It's Me Again!

Well, I started to design a card and when I got to the Designer Paper I couldn't decide between two, so I did some of each. 

My image is from Stampassions. The designer is Shara Reiner. Isn't it whimsically wonderful. It was stamped with Brilliance Galaxy Gold and I colored it with Twinkling H2O's.  I high lighted the flowers with Glossy Accents and Deco Art Glamour Dust.
(As of the end of June, or by CHA anyway, they are going to be sold now by Creative Imaginations. There are less colors, but they are more vibrant and they are all in different packaging too.) They will be selling some in 5 gram pots with 6 to a set.  There area also some that are different colors in 10 gram pots and sold separately. They will also have the daubers and the sprays too, again in different containers and the sprays do not clog.)  They sent me some samples (LUCKY ME) and I am going to do some projects with them soon.
The image was framed with Bazzill Bling cardstock.  The edge was done with Martha Stewart corner and border punches.  The ribbon is from Michaels and the button is too.   Mark Richards 2mm pearls were used in the holes of the button.  The butterfly is also an MS punch.  I used Glossy Accents on the dots and applied Deco Art Glamour Dust.  What you see next to the card is the envelope.  It was done using a dauber to ink the image and then painted as shown.  Below is what I did with the inside and envelope:
Below is how I did the other card using different DP.  Same color, but different shades of pink and design on the paper too! 
Stamp: Stampassions: Summer Thyme Bouquet by Shara Reiner.
Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Super Smooth 80lb. cardstock and text weight for the punched edges, Bazzil Bling, Stampin' Up and Anna Griffin.
Inks: Brilliance Galaxy Gold, Twinkling H2O's Cherry Sorbet, Heavenly White, Orange Peel, Dreamsicle, Cool Waters
Accessories: Glossy Accents; Deco Art Glamour Dust; 1/8" pop dots, Heart button, Mark Richards 2mm pearl stickers, Martha Stewart Double Loops Punch Set and EK Success Paper Shaper Butterfly punch.

Well I think that just about covers everything.  I hope your weekend is turning out great and I'll see you back here soon.  Thanks for all of your emails to say hi and for stopping by to look and share.

Shirley, this is so pretty. It reminds me of the type of card issued in the 20's or 30's that my gramma saved in her trunk for years and years. They were all embossed and glistened with glitter. Thanks for the info on the h20's. I havent used mine in a while -too many cool things to play with. I need to get them out again and play.
