My first card using today's set, Grandma's Boudoir, is for both the MFP Blog Hop and the Stampin'B Challenge to use bling on your card. As you can see, my bling is the pearl and rose flourish. I'm glad I didn't live in the era of wearing corsets. That looks sooo uncomfortable. But, as the sentiment implies, the corset made you look marvelous!
My second card is a little plainer. I stamped the cameo twice -- once in silver pigment ink and then embossed with Detail Silver embossing powder; and again with VersaMagic Aegean Blue chalk. After cutting out that portion of the blue cameo that would be the stone, I pressed Versafine on it and embossed with clear embossing powder -- twice, to give it a nice shine. Then I glued it down onto the silver image.
The layouts for both of my cards were found on Page Maps.
