The "Creative Combination" colors are Regal Rose, Early Espresso, and Daffodil Delight. I dry embossed the Regal Rose card stock using the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder and the Big Shot. I stamped the image from the Four Frames stamp set in Early Espresso ink, and punched it out with the Decorative Label punch. I also punched a label from Early Espresso card stock, cut in in half lengthwise, and layered it behind the top and bottom of the punched image.The sentiment is stamped in Regal Rose ink from the Fabulous Phrases stamp set. If tying ribbon is a challenge for you, try the 5/8" satin ribbon - it's very easy to work with :)
The "Sweet Set" colors are Regal Rose, Tempting Turquoise, and Sahara Sand. The focal point on this card uses the technique called two-step stampin'. Awash with Flowers is a great stamp set to use if you would like to try 'doing the two-step' at home ;) I used Sahara Sand for both the solid and outline images that create the leaf - I just stamped off onto scratch paper before stamping the solid image. The Tempting Turquoise strip of card stock is punched using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch, and tucked behind Sahara Sand card stock which is dry embossed with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder and the Big Shot. The turquoise rhinestone brad is the largest size from the Circle Ice assortment (109111 $10.95).
