First up is Melanie's new set called The Vine.....



Stamps: The Vine
Paper: Pure Luxury White, Fresh Asparagus, Innocent Pink; Basic Grey Sweet Threads
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Copics
Accessories: Rhinestones, Ribbon, Dots CB Folder, Stickles


I had to go with some pretty pink!!  I used the Spellbinders Lacey Circles and Floral Doily die sets.  And layers....lots of layers with some bling!!  LOL  I am loving this wrinkled ribbon lately....methinks I need all the colors they make that stuff in! Ha!  I just colored the trumpet blooms softly and sponged the inside of the die to help them pop just a bit more.  The cool pink woodgrain dp is from Basic Grey Sweet Threads which I love!!  And my cardstock is Pure Luxury White, Innocent Pink and Fresh Asparagus.

Paper: Pure Luxury White, Black Onyx, unknown dp

  14. Beautiful cards!! Your vine card is so soft and pretty, love the sponging it really added to the look. (I've been using my Copics on ribbon and it works so well....so I just get white ribbon, now I have any color ribbon I want.) Your black and white card is very classy looking and fun!
