Have a look at Annie's cards:

Hello Crafty Friends -  Annie Collins of Little Wings Creates with another set of cards featuring the Love A2 Card Fronts and the Blossom Like a Butterfly digital stamps.

I am so sad that this is my last post. I had a wonderful time being a part of this team. Thank you, Shery, for inviting me to guest design.

Let's start with the Love A2 Card Fronts digital stamp set. They are perfectly sized for an A2 card front. However, you can make them into any size you prefer because that's the beauty of digital stamps. I printed and trimmed my card panels a bit smaller than A2 so that I could add some coordinating cardstock to the panels. Then, I adhered the panels to my card bases.

Card #1 - I kept the background black and white and added all the color to the cup and flowers. I went for a bold color on the cup and softer pastel colors for the flowers. I used a sentiment from the Sweetly stamp set for this card. Finished the card with some sequins. 



Card #2 - I kept the background black and white and added all the color to the flowers. I went for a softer pastel colors for the flowers. Finished the card with some sequins in coordinating colors. 


Card #3I kept the background black and Wwhite and added all the color to the rose and the cupcake. I went for a softer pastel colors for the rose and cupcake liner. I went a bit bolder with the colors of the strawberry and chocolate. Finished the card with some sequins in coordinating colors. 

Materials list for all the cards above:
Accent 80# Ultra Smooth Cardstock: Opaque White
Recollections 110# Cardstock: White

Next let's take a look at the slimline card I created using the Blossom Like a Butterfly digital stamp set.

I used the Blossom Like a Butterfly digital stamp set along with the Stamploration XOXOX stencil for this slimline card. I colored the butterfly with Distress Inks and I used a bit of Wink of stella on the body and wings of the butterfly. I used texture paste for the background to create with lovely and bright card. Finished off the card with a few sequins.

  6. Wow, I love all these cards, I don't think I could pick a favorite. Your coloring is beautiful -- and putting the emphasis on the flowers by leaving the background B&W is the right choice, for sure.
