Pin-Sight Challenge

Hello there!
I am playing along in the Essentials by Ellen Pin-Sight Challenge!



So Ralph Lauren, isn't it!?
I made 2 simple cards, these photos were just too inspirational! 

The patriotic red, white, and blue had to be my colors on both cards!
I used 2 stamp sets from Essentials by Ellen. They are both 4"x4".

Pretty, isn't it!?
It was super easy to make! I Started with a 4"x4" piece of watercolor paper, I drew lines with the Night of Navy Stampin' Marker then went over them with one of my bigger paint brushes. I then die cut the flower and leaf with the Bold Bloom die, adhered them, then stamped and heat embossed the sentiment. I was actually done there, but it needed something, so I added some gold and white sequins;-) It was perfect!

My second card was easy as well. I just stamped that gem in Pacific Point and Real Red. I eyeballed them but the grid paper helped too. Then I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment and that little gem, fussy cut the gem and placed it with the Stampin' Dimensionals. For the finishing touch, I brushed all the gems with the Glitter Pen. Done!
