Daffodil and Espresso Just A Note

Hello everyone!
I have two quick cards to share with you today - both made with the Three Leaves A La Carte stamp. I'm telling you, these single stamps are so versatile - it's amazing what you can get out of them! Just take a look:

This card was created with Daffodil Delight cardstock that I dry embossed with the Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder and my Big Shot. I simply layered it with a piece of Early Espresso cardstock and a piece of Greenhouse Gala Designer Series Paper. After wrapping these pieces with Old Olive Satin and Early Espresso 1/8" Taffeta ribbons, I popped them up on Stampin' Dimensionals on the card front.

For my focal point, I punched a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock with the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch, layered it with a piece of Early Espresso that was cut out with the Big Shot and my Circles #2 Die and then the stamped piece was punched out with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch.
To color my image, I used Stampin' Write Markers in Old Olive and Early Espresso to color right on the stamp rubber so when I stamped it on the Whisper White cardstock, it created a multi-color image. So easy!
This entire focal point was popped up on a few more Stampin' Dimensionals and that finished off the card! How do you like it?

Next, I took a piece of Early Espresso cardstock cut at 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" and folded it to make a square notecard. It's layered with a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock.

The Whisper White layer was stamped by inking up just the leaves on the stamp and stamping them in a row across the cardstock, re-markering between each impression. I added a strip of Daffodil Delight cardstock and a piece of knotted Early Espresso 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon for decoration. After cleaning my stamp, I colored the greeting with the Early Espresso Stampin' Write Marker and added it just below the cardstock strip.
Again, a very easy card which uses very limited supplies. You really can get a lot of looks from just a few products!

All the products I used with the exception of the Big Shot materials came from the colors in the Getting Started Collection - even the colors in the Greenhouse Gala DSP are in that collection!
