More Nature Walk

The first card is a CASE from one by Mary Fish.  I don't usually copy so closely but it was a great card and I didn't change much.  I kind of think I should have inked it a little around the edges of the white though.  The 3 ribbon roses in the corner are new products in the Occasions Mini Catalog, they are a quick and easy accent that makes a big impact.  I used the flower stamp from Nature Walk to create a patterned background on the Crumb Cake layer and stamped the bird on the Whisper White cardstock.  I think Mary Fish said something about Winter Whites to describe her card.  There are definitely a lot of neutrals going on here.  I love it though!

Both cards use not only the Nature Walk but also the lace trim, tied simply in a knot.  There is more color on this card, Old Olive and Pacific Point as well as a touch of More Mustard on the bee.  I stamped the flower several times in 2 generations to give dimension to the background.  I embossed the Old Olive base with the Tulip Frame embossing folder, I hope Stampin' Up comes out with more of these frame embossing folders in the next catalog, I love them!  They really make creating cards easier.  I put a layer of DSP from the Springtime Vintage between the stamped piece and the embossed background and sponged the stamped piece before adding some dots from a Soft Suede marker.  I got the sentiment (from Occasional Quotes) a little crooked but hey, it's the thought that counts, right?
