So here is my first card it uses Lace Flowers background stamp (SL3175) behind the vellum and Ornamental Beauty (LL-6018) in the foreground.
I started off with a 5"x 7" finished card size using black metallic paper for the base. I then used Paris Nights (Tina Higgins) by G.C.D. Studios for the rest of my papers. The second layer was a piece of black & cream flocked paper followed by a piece of gold with brown dots. I then took a piece of paper which was black with cream color flourishes and ran it thru a Cuttlebug folder called "Brocade Window" I then used my Blackbird Fluid Chalk and  ran it over the raised areas of the folder to make the embossed areas stand out. I stamped the Lace Flowers onto black paper using white pigment ink and embossed the image using white embossing powder. I used one of the techniques from Technique Junkies. Then I colored the white embossed areas using Copic markers using the following colors; YR04, YR07, RV17, RV19, B95, B97, G99, YG06, R08, R89, BV08 and V25. I then cut out Brocade Window using vellum. Using the window I stamped the sentiment from Ornamental Beauty using white pigment ink and embossed using gold embossing powder which I placed into the window over the colored background. I then used some gold ribbon by Michael's on the corners and made a double bow. I took some white roses by I Am Roses and sprayed them using Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst spray called "Icy Primrose Gold". I then embossed an altered blank by Vintaj using an Deco Emboss die called "Woodland Birds". I applied Tim Holtz's alcohol inks using black soot, pearl and silver.

Here is inside of the card.




















Here is a look at card # 2. This time I used all 3 sets that I received for this blog hop. I used "Lace Flowers" background, "Spanish Words" background and Ornamental Beauty Rummage Bin Stamp. I started off with 5"x 6" finished card size using Concord Crush for the base. I used the collection called 'Snowy Serenade' by Bo Bunny for the rest of my papers. For the second layer I used Frost Dot paper by Bo Bunny. Then I used a technique called 'Bandana'. I used a piece of shimmery paper applied various inks such as Inky Blue, Lavender, Purple and Bermuda Blue Vivid dye inks by Clearsnap using white foam tips and stylus. Took my Lace Flowers background stamp using Black Archival ink by Ranger stamped onto my colored paper. Voila!! I didn't have a white gel pen so I used Tim Holtz distress marker 'Picket Fence' to outline some of the image. Then I stamped Spanish Words using Versamark 'Frost' onto shimmery white paper and embossed using clear embossing powder. Again I applied various inks such as Inky Blue, Lavender, Purple and Bermuda Blue Vivid dye inks by Clearsnap using white foam tips and stylus to color the white paper. I then sandwich the colored paper between to pieces of bond paper and ironed off the embossing powder. Voila! I matted this onto purple metallic paper.
I used the flower from Ornamental Beauty and again stamped using Versamark 'Frost' onto shimmery white paper and embossed using clear embossing powder. I colored this image using Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals in the following colors; Voodoo Violet Blue and Delphinium Turquoise. I cut out a blue center using the newest Spellbinders 'Spectacular Spin' using Frost Dot paper and a larger one using purple metallic paper. I stamped the sentiment from Ornamental Beauty using white pigment ink and gold EP onto Frost Dot paper. I punch it out using Stampin'Up  largest oval and punched out purple journal  tag using EK Success punch called Journal plate & Bracket punch. Attached 2 purple Mardi Gras Candi to the tag and one blue Candi to the center of the flower!
