New Stamps!!

I got some new stamps yesterday that I'm going to be using in a swap. They are from the new Occasions mini that you can see here. The first card I made uses Essence of Love! I LOVE this stamp! I've seen where several people have called it a "weed" stamp, but I don't think it looks like weeds at all! I think this card is so soft and feminine looking! I used the Faux Watercolor Technique. I have a tutorial here if you didn't see that before! I used the Green Galore and Cameo Coral watercolor crayons for this particular card. The butterfly was colored in pretty in pink and perfect plum. All the images were stamped on whisper white cardstock and layered on whisper white as well. I used a distressing tool to distress the edges of one layer to give a little definition to that layer since it was white on white. I also got some white tafetta ribbon for the first time and I LOVE it too! It is soft and easy to tie! I was inspired by another card I saw on someone elses blog, but of course I can't remember whose blog it was! If she happens to see this or someone else knows let me know and I will revise this so she gets credit!! I hope you like this card half as much as I do and I hope the swappers like it too! Here's the card! Enjoy!

I'll post another card tomorrow using another new set! So keep your eyes peeled for another wonderful creation by moi! LOL
