Now, onto my projects:
 For the first card, I used the Flower Power Separates set that we released last month.  I just LOVE this set.  So gorgeous!!  I also used some small flowers from the newly released Flower Power Backgrounds and Borders.  And of course, I used one of the new marquee frames.  I think I'm going to love these, too.  I guess technically this is a 2 layer card, but other than the base it is all one layer.  I started by stamping the frame onto the center of the panel.  Then I stamped it on scrap paper and cut it out to use as a mask.  Then I stamped the flowers and leaves, removed the mask and colored the images.  I used my craft knife to cut a slit on either side of the frame so I could thread the ribbon through.  I popped up the small flowers and added pearls to the center.  LOVE it!!
For card #2, I used a sort of reverse spotlight technique, with the image outside the frame being colored and the inside left uncolored to allow the sentiment to show.  I used the larger of the marquee frames on this one and stamped it in the center of the main panel.  Then I stamped it again on scrap paper and cut it out to use it as a mask.  I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the lighthouse scene in black letting it extend onto the mask.  Then I removed the mask and used the stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the image again with a light gray, so it would show up faintly inside the frame.  Then I colored the parts of the image that are outside the image.  I really, really, really, like how this turned out.
Don't forget to hop over to The House blog each day and leave a comment to be entered into the drawing to win this fabulous set.
