Card 1

For this first card I stamped and heat embossed in silver the shoes and a sentiment from the First Step Stamp Set on an A2 top-folding black card base. Next, I colored in the shoes with a Kirarina Wink Pen (emerald green, 013).

I then adhered 7 emerald tear drop gems onto each shoe using glossy accents as an adhesive. And with that, this card is done!

 

Card 2

For my second card I started by stamping the individual gem stamps from the First Step Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black on an A2 top-folding black cardbase. Using a MISTI, I stamped each gem 3 times to make sure the images showed up on the black cardstock.

I then stamped a bowtie from the Bowtiful Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black 3 times on the card. Next, stamped and heat embossed in silver a sentiment from the Bowtiful Stamp Set. I then adhered pink and purple gems of various sizes with in the outline of the stamped bowtie using glossy accents.

 

Card 3

Alrighty for card number 3, first I diecut 2 of the Magical Butterflies on a 4.125 x 5.25 black panel. I then stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from the Purse-nality Stamp Set in silver on the panel. I then centered the panel onto an A2 black cardbase and traced the butterflies with a pencil.

I then removed the panel and adhered a variety of gems over the traced butterflies. Lastly, I doubled up foam tape and added it to the backside of my panel and then adhered the panel onto the card front.

 

Card 4

For my last card I repeatedly stamped a gem image from the First Step Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black. Like I did on the second card, each gem image was stamped 3 times consecutively so the images would show up on the black cardstock.

I then stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from the Gemstone Stamp Set in silver. Lastly, I created a gem design by adhering the gems with glossy accents around a center gem creating a radiating pattern. And that's it!

I hope you enjoyed! Thanks for stopping by!
