Now that we have all the details covered, let's get onto the projects!

You're In My Heart Card
Today I was feeling inspired to create a few custom backgrounds and this card features the results of lots of fun mixing and matching.

Stamped background
I used the solid leaves from Harvest Berries in Ripe Avocado, the large Flower Fusion #7 flower in Terracotta Tile, the small flower in Orange Zest and the "flower center" dot in Summer Sunrise.  I then used a black pen to add dots tot he centers of some of the flowers.  Totally in love with this color combo.

Sentiment closeup
I die-cut the Mat Stack 1 die from Vintage Cream and the *NEW* Layerz Mat Stack 1 from Terracotta Tile (more details about this product line tomorrow).  I discovered that this frame from Fillable Frames Additions 2 looks pretty darn fantastic when used with the Mat Stack 1 shape.  I stamped it in Ripe Avocado and then added the sentiment (also from Fillable Frames Additions 2) in True Black.  I added a small heart from Simple valentine using Orange Zest ink.

Background closeup
The custom background was adhered to a Summer Sunrise card base and I tied Orange Zest Satin Ribbon around it to help add emphasis to the focal point.

Birthday Wishes Card
For this card I dug out my seldom used Perfect Pearls to create a dramatic black card.

Card front
I stamped the largest sunflower from Simple Sunflower in VersaMark and applied Sunflower Sparkle Perfect Pearls to the petals and Perfect Bronze to the center.  For the stem I used a stripe from Faux Ribbon and leaves from Autumn Acorns.  Green Patina Perfect Pearls was used on that portion.  I used a Gold DecoArt paint pen to add an outline to the focal point block for definition.

Sentiment
The beautiful sentiment from Think Big Favorites #7 was stamped in VersaMark onto a strip of Ripe Avocado cardstock and Sunflower Sparkle Perfect Pearls was applied to it.

Down
This card was really fun to create and it was a nice change of pace to do something in black like this rather than a traditional white or cream.

Wishing You Well Card
Now for a fun & bright color scheme of Scarlet Jewel, Hibiscus Burst & Aqua Mist.

Pattern strips
I created patterned cardstock strips for the bottom portion of the focal point.  The Scarlet Jewel strip was stamped with Polka Dot Basics using Fresh Snow ink.  The Hibiscus Burst strip was stamped with Background Basics: Houndstooth using VersaMark ink.

Flowers closeup
I die-cut the Flower Fusion #7 shape from each of the three colors of cardstock and stamped them with the coordinating outline flower in VersaMark.  I then heat embossed them with White Filigree embossing powder.  Black rhinestones were applied to their centers.  I hand-cut a few leaves from True Black felt for even more texture.

Down
The "Wishing You Well" sentiment from Think Big Favorites #7 finishes everything off, stamped in True Black.

Sending You Sunshine Card
For this card I wanted to mix an match a few different textile patterns.

Flower closeup
I die-cut white cardstock with the Simple Sunflower die and stamped the coordinating flower image using Aqua Mist ink and the center in Ripe Avocado ink.  I hand-cut some leaves from Kraft cardstock and stamped them with Background Basics: Houndstooth using Smokey Shadow ink.  If you have never used Smokey Shadow on Kraft, I highly recommend it.  The effect is really beautiful!  

Sentiment closeup
The sentiment (from Simple Sunflower) was heat embossed with White Filigree Embossing Powder onto a strip of Simply Chartreuse cardstock.

Down
To ground everything, I stamped the Mat Stack 5 shape from Modern Wood Mats in Ripe Avocado onto the Spring Moss card front.  The finished front was adhered to a Ripe Avocado card base.

Thank You So Very Much Card
Here is a project featuring another one of the backgrounds I created.

Stamped background
I stamped the large lined leaf image from Harvest Berries in True Black all over a Pure Poppy card front.  I then added the small outlined flower from Flower Fusion #7 in Fresh Snow ink.  I added the small dot trio from Harvest Berries in True Black to the center of each of the flowers.  You can just barely make out the large solid flower from Flower Fusion #7 in the background stamped with VersaMark.

Sentiment closeup
I die-cut Fillable Frames #8 from white cardstock and stamped the coordinating frame from Fillable Frames Additions 2 in True Black.  The sentiment is also from Fillable Frames Additions 2.  Heather selected an amazing font combination for all the sentiments in this set.

Down
I wrapped some black twine around the cover a few times and finished it off with a simple knot.

I'm Here Card
For my last card I wanted to demonstrate how you can combine both Simple Sunflower & Flower Fusion #7.

Flower closeup
I heat embossed the largest sunflower from Simple Sunflower in White Filigree Embossing Powder.  I then stamped elements of Flower Fusion #7 around the large bloom using VersaMark ink.  I used the small berry trio image from Harvest Berries in Fresh snow ink to finish off the center of each of the smaller flowers.  I used one of the beautiful large, detailed buttons from the White/Cream Button Mix to add definition to the large sunflower.

Down
The sentiment (from Flower Fusion #7) was added in Smokey Shadow ink onto the Harvest Gold focal point.  I used Background Basics: Houndstooth to fill the Kraft card base with pattern.  A border created with the XL Rickrack die help to tie everything together.  I used my pinking shears as well.

I’m still loving the new background houndstooth stamp and the harvest berries – sigh. Would you be so kind to pick my number? Not to worry – there’s more on the “want list” to buy just in case I would be soooo lucky to win. I didn’t think my stamps needed new friends, but they do!!!

I was inspired to purchase my first Perfect Pearls after taking Summer Card Camp and am thrilled for more inspiration to use them!
