Pretty Pastels

Hi everyone! It's been a little while, but I'm back with some pretty cards using Follow Your Dreams Mix Set. I've used some of my new papers from A Muse|Studio's Spring Card Stock collection for both, and kept them quite CAS.

The MFT Die-namic kind of reminded me of a nest, so I thought I would use it for my card. I spritzed a little Chocolate ink onto my card base with my SU Color Spritzer, and added a little A Muse|Studio ribbon as well.

Stamps: Follow Your Dreams Mix Set (Lizzie Anne Designs)
Card Stock: Sky, French Roast (A Muse|Studio), White
Ink: Rich Cocoa Memento, Chocolate Chip Marker, Copic Markers
Accessories: Corner Chomper, Circle Nestabilities, Dizzy Doily Die-namics (MFT), Color Spritzer Tool (SU), A Muse|Studio Ribbon, Foam Tape

This next card has some texture which I've added using my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. I have also lightly sanded the dots to reveal the white core of the paper. Very subtle, and pretty. The baby shoes were embossed on vellum with white detail embossing powder, trimmed, and adhered with vellum Glue Dots. I've used my Bow Easy for the taffeta bow.

Stamps: Follow Your Dreams Mix Set (Lizzie Anne Designs)

Thanks for stopping by! I will be back again soon. Promise!
