And true to form, they sat in a drawer for the last 6 months until I finally pulled them out today and decided to start playing with them. I made 4 different cards to show all of the options you have when using these to make cards with.
The first one is stamped with Whisper White Craft Ink and embossed with Iridescent Ice Stampin' Emboss Powder. I stamped with the Whisper White Craft Ink because I was going to use White Stampin' Emboss Powder, but then changed my mind and did the embossing with Iridescent Ice. Unfortunately, you can't see the sparkle of the "easter eggs" in the picture.
Card Stock: River Rock, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White

For the second card I used Melon Mambo Craft Ink and Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder.

- I used the scraps from the paint chips to stamp the "Life is a Matter of Moments."
For my third card I used Black Stampin' Emboss Powder, and I gotta tell you I'm loving how this one turned out!!
Card Stock: Naturals White, Basic Black, Tempting Turquoise
Stamp Sets: Bliss, Occasional Quotes
Punches: Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch, Ticket Corner Punch
Accessories: Paper Piercer, Mat Pack, Stampin' Up! Brights Brads (Tempting Turquoise), Black Stampin; Emboss Powder, Embossing Buddy, Heat Tool, Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Big Shot, Basic Black 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, SNAIL, Paper Snips
- I used the Paper Piercer and Mat Pack to make holes exactly where I want the Brads to sit.
- When putting Brads in the corner I often get a part of the back of the brad that sticks out past the edge of the paper. When that happens I use my Paper Snips to cut off the excess.
My last card is my favourite, I love the look of the white embossing with the blue.
Card Stock: Night of Navy, Whisper White
Stamps: Charming, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Craft Whisper White
Punches: Pinking Hearts Border Punch
Accessories: Baja Breeze 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon, Sticky Strip, White Stampin' Emboss Powder, Embossing Buddy, Heat tool
- To get this look with the ribbon, I pulled a couple threads length wise from the middle of the ribbon, and as I pulled that thread the ribbon bunched up. I then placed a piece of sticky strip across the Night of Navy Card Stock and then layed the ribbon on that Sticky Strip to hold it in place.
Well, that's all for today, I hope you enjoy my post as much as I enjoyed making these cards.
