Carnations + Half & Half

Hi everyone! Sorry for little update (I did warn you though). I've just finished two assessments today and have a practice run of my practical exam tomorrow (yeah, on a Saturday!).

Anyway, I've been in some dire need for some de-stressing, so I went and made some cards. My SU! order just came and along with it my long-awaited white embossing powder! I couldn't wait long enough for it to come back in stock at PTI lol

So I decided to go back to the good old Year of Flowers: Carnations set. I just love this set. It is so elegant and pretty <3

I love the next card soooo much! I couldn't believe how well the blending worked out on the flowers! I used my brand new Calypso Coral ink pad from SU! with the Tim Holtz Blending Tool to give some colour. Just head over heels in love how smooth the blending went (usually I do something stupid and get sharp edges in the blends).

I'm going to head over and make another one in yellow now!

Thanks for coming by!

These are great! I am pretty much in love with white embossing powder myself, too.

So beautiful. That white embossing is great. I always seem to smudge mine. I love on the green card, how the edge of the card and the edge of the half and half die kind of echo each other.

Both cards are beautiful. Love the kraft & green combo as well as your use of the edgers die and Half & Half. also love the bling. You did a fantastic job with the blending on your second car. The color combinations on that card are awesome.
I hope you were able to destress some.

What fantastic jobs you've done. Both cards are so lovely. I adore the edgers on the first and the rouged flowers of the second are just perfect.
