My first project for today's set, Love Remains, is a criss-cross card made with several images from the set. If you've never made a criss-cross card, you can find the directions in the Resources section of Splitcoaststampers. My card base is MFP Razmataz Berry, a 100-pound cardstock, with designer papers from Authentique's Uncommon paper pack. I colored the rose images with Copic markers R00, R01, R11, R12, R14, BG93, BG96, and a Prismacolor marker PM-192. I cut out the large rose and popped it up onto a strip of MFP August Greens and pale green ribbon. The insert is August Greens and Snow Storm Smooth. I added some bling for interest. I did find out you shouldn't use Memento ink on ribbon. After I photographed my card, I noticed that the ink was bleeding into the ribbon. (Lesson learned!!!)
My second project is a set of four coasters. The rosebud on the front coaster is from Love Remains, and the others are from various other MFP sets. The background image is from MFP Background Fun, stamped in Palette Charcoal. You can find these coasters in the photo frame section of Michaels.
Here are all four of the coasters.
