Pink Cards

Today I have a couple of cards I want to share with you that use shades of pink.

The first one is for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge to use flowers of any kind on your card. Beginning with a white card base, I chose this beautiful Basic Grey paper to begin with. I stamped a sentiment from Verve's Beautiful You set in Mellow Moss, cut and embossed using Labels I die cut and sponged Pretty in Pink along the edges before removing the die. The second piece was cut and embossed using an Octagonal die, sponged with Mellow Moss and lightly stamped in PIP with SU's retired floral stamp from Petite Patterns. The sentiment was placed on the octagonal piece with foam adhesive. Martha Stewart's edger was punched on the bottom of the designer paper and laid on top of the PIP cardstock. After placing a strip of Mellow Moss along the bottom edge, the patterned paper piece was placed above it. Pink taffeta ribbon was then wrapped around the card and run through a floral ribbon slider by SU and tied in a knot. Tiny pink rhinestones were added to the octagonal piece. MS triple butterfly punch was punched out of PIP cardstock. To small pearls were added to the large butterfly and raised with foam adhesive; then put on the corner of the sentiment. Inside (not shown) a piece of Mellow Moss was placed on the bottom edge with a scrap piece of Basic Grey pink on top of it. The two smaller butterflies that were punched out of the PIP for the larger butterfly on the front is gracefully put at different angles along the left side above the double strip.

Stamps: Beautiful You (Verve), Petite Patterns (SU, ret.)
Paper: Basic Grey Porcelain, Mellow Moss, Pretty in Pink, white
Ink: PIP, Mellow Moss
Other: Octagon and Labels I Nesties, tiny pink rhinestones, small pearls, MS triple butterfly and edger punches, SU pink taffeta ribbon, SU flower ribbon slide, foam adhesive

The second one is Flopsey with pink cheeks holding "her" pink cup of coffee and wearing pinky Spring Mix Flower Soft houseshoes. She was fun to color, too. Just look at her sweet little cheeks and inner ears! Aren't they worth kissing?? Flopsey was stamped first on a piece of white cardstock; then stamped a second time, colored, cut out, raised on foam adhesive and placed over the first one. A scrap piece of white cardstock was embossed with the D'Vine Swirl EF and cut a little smaller than the card itself (4.25 x 4.25).A smaller piece of Creamy Caramel was wrapped with SU Chocolate Satin ribbon and placed on top of the embossed piece. The top layer was then placed on top.

Stamps: Flopsey (My Favorite Things)
Paper: White, Creamy Caramel
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Other: D'Vine Swirl EF, Copics, Spring Mix Flower Soft, foam adhesive

I hope you like these. I welcome any constructive criticism. I'm loving these Copics!!
