Crazy for Baroque!


I've had so much fun with the Baroque Motifs stamp set.... it's fabulous!!
-
The first card was made yesterday while SCS was down and my friend Arin was over for some stamping time. I wanted some bold colros to go with the K&Co paper... so I threw a bunch of scraps in a pile and was determined to use them all. Well I accomplished my goal with this card, and I have to admit I REALLY LOVE the way it turned out! I dug out my heat gun for a little gold embossing on the flourish. I also used my Martha Cosmos punch and highlighted the flower with Startdust pen. This card opens at the top and has a pocket on the bottom half. I added a layered piece of cardstock as a pull out card
-
Card #2 was today's creation. I had some more scraps laying in my table and realized how beautiful Thyme, Soft Sky and Wasabi look together. I also added some Not Quite Navy as the card base on this one. Again, I embossed the flourish in gold EP, I also embossed the center flower and added a rhinestone brad.

I can't pick one! They are both beautiful! I love them both!! Usually, I can narrow cards down because of color choice, but I LOVE green and I LOVE pink! WOW, these are just amazing!

They're both gorgeous but I really love the second card. The colors are so pretty.

I love both of them of course...who wouldn't! But I really like the first one best, I love the brightness of it!

Karen (aka Karen Stamps! on scs) said...

I love them both! But I would have to pick Card #2 because I love True Thyme, and your colour combination there is just sensational. And the layout, and all the details. I love it!!!!

Speaking of cards I love, I spotted your card in my new Paper Crafts magazine and it's really stunning! Congratulations!

Heather said...

These are both just gorgeous! Picking a fav is tough, but I'm going to have to go with the "funkier" of the two... The pink one! :)

Rose Ann said...

Gosh...I love both of your gorgeous cards!! If I had to choose my favorite, I would choose the second, just because I love blues& greens!

I love these cards! The colors remind me of the rich victorian colors. Beautiful! Now I want to dig out some of my darker colors!

love them both....so very gorgeous! The colors in the first one jump out at me tho....love it!

I love that you chose bold colors to go with the flourish set on the first cards. Something that I havent seen too much yet of most of the posters of cardmakers using this set.
#2 has such a classic elegance about it, and I love how the colors come together too. my fav is #2

Beth said...

Gorgeous cards. I'm particularly fond of the first one. It is reminiscent of your SCS subscriber gallery. Love what you did with this brightly coloured card!

Debbie said...

These are absolutely beautiful!! I love them both!!

Fran M said...

They are both gorgeous, but if you are going to twist my arm I'm going to have to say #1 because of the color.

Marlou said...

Oh, gorgeous! You're doing fabulous things with this set!

The Closet Fashionista said...

LOVE both! They are really pretty, but #1 is my favorite! I am a HUGE fan of Amy Butler and have a substantial collection of her fabrics. When I found her new paper products, I bought everything!

chelemom said...

I love both cards! They are beautiful...do I have to pick a favorite?

Ticia said...

Your cards are sooooo beautiful! I love this set.

Jenny said...

If I have to pick a favorite I pick the bottom one. I LOVE the wasabi with the blue and gold! I've always been a little afraid of gold EP, but you have shown me that it can be very beautiful!

Mimi Hornberger said...

You just rock my world, girl! These, as with most all of your creations, are so awesome! TFS!

Shari said...

These cards are great! I love both of them. If I have to choose one I would take the first card. Like your color combos! Love the Baroque stamp set.

mum on the run said...

Rubberstamping and card making are my therapy. I used to tell my husband that it was cheaper than a therapist--but I think he is on to me ;-) bethatma@cox.net--bethatma on splitcoast
