This is another of the cards we recently made at my stamp-a-stack class. It uses the Fifth Avenue Floral set. The main card is in not quite navy , and the smaller flower from the set was stamped in white craft ink. The whiper white piece is stamped in not quite navy, kiwi kiss, and baja breeze. It was then punched with the spiral punch. The sentiment is on a piece of baja breeze and clipped to the card with a clip from the retired hodgepodge hardware. The ribbon is kiwi kiss 5/8" striped.

This card was fun to make. It is a joy fold card that uses designer paper from the Urban Oasis collection. The main card is confetti cream with the DP on top. The lilies from the Fifth Avenue Floral are stamped in versmark and then clear embossed. They were then colored with white prismacolor crayons. I wanted to use some of the Soho Designer Hardware for the closure for the card. The sentiment is from the co-ordinating Fashion District rub-ons. ( all Stampin'Up! Manhattan Style line)
This card uses the Fifth Avenue Floral set, and the sentiment is from the co-ordinating Fashion District Rub-ons. The scallop at the bottom is from the canvas cuts die cuts that also co-ordinate in the MANHATTAN STYLE LINE. I like the look of the ribbon glide and the clear rhinestones with the baja breeze and basic grey colors together. The ribbon is the basic grey tafetta. The rose is embossed in whisper white embossing powder.

I wanted to do some watercoloring today and I knew the colors would work well with this set. The images are all stamped in Chocolate chip on watercolor paper and watercolored in. The leaves and butterfly were cut and mounted after. I stamped the main piece with sanded softly in caramel, and the french script in close to cocoa. I though it time to brake out the hodgepodge hardware ( pewter finish) so used that for the INSPIRE sentiment. The dotted chocolate ribbon is from the Valet ribbon originals. The brads in the flower centers are the aged copper finish. The card stock for the card is red riding hood ( instead of ruby red) and the other card stock is chocolate chip.
