Quiet Essence

Today I have two cards to share with you that use the Quiet Essence set from Unity Stamp Company. The first card is a clean and simple style using a pink card base from AMuse Studio cardstock and some patterned paper from My Mind's Eye. The flower was stamped on white cardstock with Versamark, heat embossed with white embossing powder and colored with Copics. The sentiment is from an older retired set from Stampin' Up.

The second card has the same flower and My Mind's Eye patterned papers but I used kraft for the card base and added some burlap, machine stitching, DMC floss and a button. Also, the sentiment is from a limited edition set by Clear and Simple Stamps and was stamped on a flag and tucked under the button.

I'm really happy with how both versions turned out. It's fun to try different styles using similar products.

Thanks so much for stopping. I hope you're having a wonderful Wednesday. Happy Stamping!

I like both but LOVE your second card. The burlap is really cool with the other more 'frilly' colors and elements. :)

Both are just super. Not sure if I like the burlap or the diagonal stripes more. The colors are spot on!
