It's release day at Taylored Expressions and I have two more cards to show you.
This first card features the new Faith & Hope set...a beautiful, elegant sentiment set! The sentiment was stamped with black craft ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The main oval, scallop vellum oval, vanilla butterfly, and vellum butterfly are all up on foam tape. The three black rhinestones in the upper right-hand corner are from Taylor's Tiny Twinkles. The yummy ivory ribbon is also from Taylored Expressions.
On the inside, I added two more butterflies that are up on foam tape as well.

Beth asked for instructions on how to make the ribbon rose. Here's a FANTASTIC video tutorial that my friend Michelle Rodgers found: http://imstampinsilly.blogspot.com/2009/03/ribbon-roses-how-to.html

The next card features the new Beach Bum set. I paired it with Nautical Blue Prism Papers, Snorkel DP, Ribbon, and Smooth Bling from the Beach Bum Key Ingredients. Behind the ribbon knot, there's a blue and white life preserver brad that's from the Beach Bum Bundle. The sails were stamped onto another pattern of DP from the Beach Bum Key Ingredients and paper pieced onto the main panel.
I added some of Taylor's Rapture Blue Glitter to the water and matted the panels with Prism Suede Brown Medium, which is from the Cupcake Key Ingredients or available separately in the TE store.
