Cards from April Counterfeit Kit - Glorious Garden

I used my April Counterfeit Kit Glorious Garden and the April 2017 Unity Stamp Company {be my bird} to make a few cards. All but one of the card have no sentiments as I will add them when I know what I'm using them for. I like to keep a supply of cards I can just add the sentiment to. I used the Misty to stamp them.

Card #1:

I stamped using gray ink and clear embossed.  I used gelatos to color the flowers and leaves, then cut a stitched die to cut it out.

Card #2:
The bike is stamped and embossed and colored in with colored pencils.

Card #3:
I used the Unity Girl for this card. She is stamped and clear embossed colored with pencil colors.  The Wink of Stella pen was used on her beads and feathers. The embossed piece is from another project.

Card #4:
I stamped the floral bouquet on two of the corners of the pink cardstock. I used glossy accents on a couple of the flowers and the Wink of Stella pen on the lily's. (if you click on the picture you can see the Wink of Stella better)

Card #5:
The butterfly was stamped and embossed after using the smooching technique with plastic wrap.  I wrapped a twine around the top and cut the butterfly into a tag shape.

Card #6:
I stamped the floral bouquet onto white cardstock and used the Stampin' Up markers on a acrylic block with water to color them in. I used the Wink of Stella pen on the white lilies. A little bit of ribbon finishes off the card. I have to remember to use the Wink of Stella more as it gives a really nice shine.

Card #7:
I stamped and colored my bird first then stamped the sentiment for the card. I had to fiddle a little bit to get the sentiment where I wanted it. I only used part of the sentiment for this card.

These are all fab, but #6 is a fave!

Beautiful cards and I really like your tip of leaving the sentiments off until you're ready to use them. What a great idea!

I'm catching up on your links and I get the impression you're working through old kits? Well, this collection of cards is simply marvellous - my favourite is #7 - that stamp is so gorgoeus and the quote is perfect.
