Dreams Du Jour

I have several cards to share with you today just as we are closing out the Fall/Winter Catalog. The set featured is Dreams Du Jour which is in the F/W Sampler and is currently (through tomorrow) offered for 20% off! This is a lovely set which can be used year-round, and is also perfect for friends and Valentine Day cards as well. And don't we loooove a sale!

The first two cards feature the Bella Rose Designer Paper and cardstock colors of Pink Pirouette, Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss and Old Olive. Two of the image stamps from the set are used; the birthday sentiment is from Birthday Hugs and Wishes set.

Other accessories used are Pretty in Pink grosgrain ribbon, Scallop circle punch, Scallop Edge Punch, Ticket Corner Punch, Crafter's Tool Kit and paper piercing tools, Signo White Gel Pen and Olive brads.

This card by Rhonda Beadell used Basic Gray, Rose Red and Vanilla cardstock plus Vellum cardstock for the image. The Floral background is stamped on the Rose Red in the same color ink for a tone on tone look.

After embossing the image in white on the vellum and letting it dry, it is colored on the back with markers, giving it a soft ethereal look. Basic Gray taffeta ribbon around the band finishes the card with a lovely touch.

I hope you enjoy these cards! Have a great weekend!

Have fun stampin'!
