3rd Double Feature... and it's Friday!!!

Happy Friday stampers!!! Crazy weather we are having in Minnesota... the -25 to-35 below temps.... BURRRRR BABY, IT'S COLD OUTSIDE! I'll be in my fuzzy slippers and drinking lots of hot cocoa... :)

Today I have a 3rd Double Feature to share!! I took the same colors, DP, and Nestie's Label die for both cards and just changed things up a bit! The first card I sponged around the Thinking of You using the Nestie's Label One die as a stencil to get he nice white edge.

Next I did the same around the larger Label die using Perfect Plum to give a deeper tone. I used my new MS Dove punch and embossed them using a Pearl EP to give an elegant touch. Also the swirls by the doves are embossed using SU! Plum Perfections EP (Retired).

The 2nd card I JAZZED it up by using my acrylic gold metallic paint on a chipboard flourish, adding Prima paper flowers, 1/2 back pearls, giving dimension by layering, etc.

Below is a close up shot to get a better look!!

Have a super great Friday bloggers!!! I'll be blog surfing during the weekend. Make sure you get some stamping time in and Smile!! Thanks for the visit!!! I LOVE it when you do...

Love your double posts! You go! So many beautiful elements on these cards. I just have to study each of them and take them in.

I had been meaning to ask you about your blog header. Now I know it's from your garden. You must a have an incredible water feature. I'm going to a winter gardening fair in two weeks at the local CC. One of the classes I'm taking is economical water gardens. Thanks for sharing!
