Pistachio and Brown Sugar

The Stampin' Up! colors I used for this card are Pistachio Pudding and Baked Brown Sugar. The cut embellishment is from Silhouette. When I want an intricately cut focal point, the Silhouette is a great option. I've also used the Silhouette to cut out Stampin' Up! MDS images, which was my primary reason for purchasing this additional tool.

Supplies:
Card Stock - Baked Brown Sugar, Pistachio Pudding, Very Vanilla
Embossing Folder - Fancy Fan
Embellishment - Pearls
Silhouette Image - Floral Sprigs (non-SU!)

Love this Hardwood stamp! It's an easy background that stands out. Of course, the blossoms and leafs were cut by hand, but so worth the results.

Ink - Calypso Coral, Crisp Cantaloupe, Gumball Green, Pistachio Pudding, Soft Suede

Prayers

Here's another condolence card. However, I've used this style for several different occasions. It's just a matter of changing the sentiment. The process for applying the ink is a combination of: direct-to-paper (running the ink pad directly across the card stock), daubing, and sponging.
Supplies:
Stamps - Serene Silhouettes, Thoughts & Prayers
Card Stock - Perfect Plumb, Whisper White
Ink - Black Stazon, Marina Mist, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Sky
Ribbon - Pear Pizzazz Taffeta
