The first card is made using a new DSP in the mini called Spice Cake, It is really gorgeous and the colours in it are Pear Pizazz, Pool Party, More Mustard, River Rock, Very Vanilla and Soft Suede. There are large matching buttons (see in the centre of the flower). I have stuck a circle of the paper in the middle of the button. I think they are going to be very versatile for cards and scrapbooking. I can imagine them on a scrap page with a photo in the centre. I've used the flower from the Blossom Party Die, embossed with the embossing folder - Petals a Plenty. The Sentiment stamp is from the hostess set Happiest Birthday Wishes and the trim is made using the Lace Ribbon Border.
This second card uses the sparkly new embossing powder Iridescent Ice, and the gorgeous silver and red Glimmer Paper. There's a Glimmer brad there, to add to the Bling effect, and the sentiment is from the Heard From the Heart set.
Bye for now,
