This first one uses a "dormant" stamp set from Stampin' Up! called Inspired by Nature.
The greeting comes from Bird on a Branch.
I used the Polka Dots Sizzix Texturz plate too but it's really subtle and hard to see in this photo.
Stamps: Inspired by Nature (Dormant List), Bird on a Branch
Inks: Basic Gray, Black
Paper: Basic Black, Shimmer White, Basic Gray
Extras: Fiskars Texturz Plate, Vintage Brads (Pewter), Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Sponge
This next one is a CASE from a card I saw on SCS. I changed the size and orientation a bit as well as added a greeting.
Again I used the Sizzix Texturz plate...I stamped the greeting BEFORE embossing!
