First, I crumpled my tissue paper and opened it. I stamped the images and used a Aqua Painter to fill in the leaves (Wild Wasabi) and the petals (Pretty in Pink and Lavender Lace) of the flower. I set the paper aside to allow the images to dry. I stamped images on the Confetti card stock in Lavender Lace and filled in the image with the same color using the Aqua Painter. I punched the corners of the Confetti and Lavender Lace card stock with the Ticket Punch and layered the two. I then punched the tag with the Circle Punches in Confetti and Pretty in Pink card stock and set it aside. I took my larger Confetti card stock, using a glue stick, I covered it entirely and smoothed my image on top and trimmed the edges. I then cut out the two floral images, glued the backs of those and placed them. I layer these images on Wild Wasabi card stock. The Confetti and Lavender layer was attached to the card. A silver organdy ribbon was layered on top of that and tied in a knot. The Wild Wasabi and Confetti with images was layered on top. I stamped "Celebrate" from Fancy Flexible Phrases on the tag, attached the rhinestone brad and adhered to card using Stampin' Dimensionals. The card is complete. Not bad for my first try.
I enjoy sharing my love of rubberstamping.

Faux Silk Embrace
When I first started this card, I wasn't sure about the results. I had read the tutorial on Split Coast Stampers and thought I'd give it a whirl. I like this technique and it wasn't difficult at all. To create this card I used the Embrace Life set, white tissue paper, Wild Wasabi, Lavender Lace, Confetti, and Pretty in Pink card stock. I also used a circle rhinestone brad, 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Ticket Corner Punch, Aqua Painter, and silver organdy ribbon (retired).
