Stamping Tier Card Technique

I have been seeing cards like the one I made alot lately.  At first I said to myself that would be too hard to make but after researching the instructions.....it was the easiest card!!!!
I started with primrose petals cardstock (5 1/2 x 8 1/2) folded in half.  I layered 3 pieces of whisper white on top each other....to make it secure I used glue dots.  I used the delicate doilies stamp set to create the background.  I love the new in colors....here I used summer starfruit, primrose petals and raspberry ripple. Take apart the layers and layer the white pieces with primrose petals cardstock.  I stamped the butterfly in gumball green.  I love this new stamp set....papillon potpourri.  The butterflies have such rich texture and would look amazing embossed.  I punched out the butterfly with the new butterfly punch.
Here is another card using the same technique....the stamp set is betsy's blossoms.  I used the new in colors again....gumball green, primrose petals, midnight muse and summer starfruit. I love the new 3/8" stitched satin ribbon. Here I used raspberry ripple.

Wedding Favors For UStamp with Dawn and Friends

I had alot of fun designing for this round with UStamp with Dawn and Friends.  I love the new in colors....on this project I used primrose petals. I am getting remarried in November and I thought it would be fun to create some wedding favors.  These favors are very easy to make. 

The new flower framelits are so fun and easy to use.  The bag was made with the fancy favor bigz die. To give it a little more depth, I stamped on the bag before putting it together.
The box can fit mints or hershey kisses in them.  I made a belly band to add that extra special touch.  You can go to the UStamp website and see my project with instructions as well as 40 other projects all from the new SU! catalog.
