For my first card, I’m using the beautiful Floral Sentiments 8 set. After coloring it with Copics, I die cut it with a large circle & the reddish print circle with the Matting Circles dies. The largest green print was die cut using the outer die of the Doily die set. The large reddish layer was die cut w/ the Flourished Star Pattern die. The white layer was die cut & to add a little texture, I left it in the die, spritzed it w/ water then laid a piece of cross stitch canvas on top and used it as an embossing plate. For the cute little bow, here’s a link to make one using an envelope punch’s just pictures BOW.These are the Copics I used.

My next card uses the lovely Floral Sentiments 7. Instead of bright colors, I decided to keep this one neutral to go with the lovely Vintage Ephemera paper collection. This wasn’t easy for me, lol. I love vibrant colors!

I went a little over the top with the die cuts and flowers, but when using this many neutral colors, more texture gives it more interest. The layers, border, top scrolls, butterflies & flowers were all die cut out of different pieces of the same paper collection. To add a little sparkle, I put some stickles in the center of the die cut flowers and also on the flowers of the image.

    Julie I love both cards as I always do!!! Looks like we had the same idea to do sepia!

  4. Hey Miss Julie, I always enjoy looking at your creations! You always have so many nice little details to look at and these are no exception! The color combos are lovely on both. The pop of colors and details like stamping the large circle underneath are so interesting!! The sepia tones of the second are so relaxing with a nod to a bygone era are perfect for the stamp!!! Two real beauties!!!

  5. I am finally realizing what I love about your cards…I mean beside the fact that they are always clean and sharp, designed perfectly and etc, etc. It’s that you always use color combos, like opposites, that are always so appealing to the eye!
    On your sepia card, your extras are just perfect! Love them both!

  6. Wow, Julie! These cards are absolutely stunning!

  7. These are just Beautiful, lovely coloring on both but I will have to say the second card to me is Absolutely stunning, both on the outside and inside!

    Thank you so much for sharing your creativity.
