World Card Making Day - RemARKable Stampers Blog Hop Stop Five

Happy World Card Making Day! Welcome to Stop Five of the RemARKable Stampers Blog Hop. We've got plenty of inspiration for you to absorb.  Sit back, relax, grab a cup of your favorite beverage or a snack and enjoy!

The stamp set Creative Elements is one of my favorite sets.  During this blog hop, I will be sharing my creations using this set.  Here are my final cards.  I created two different color versions using the same layout:

Check out how the Champagne Shimmer Mist paint sparkles!

Here, you can see how the Log Cabin Smooch Spritz glimmers.

This card was also Pinterest inspired. (I've got to stop spending so much time on that site!)  After cutting the flower pieces with the Floral Framelits die, I spritzed each flower with water using the Stampin' Spritzer, then crumpled them up and let them dry.  After they dried I pierced each later with the Paper Piercing Tool and assembled the flowers together with an Antique Brad.  I also spritzed the punched leaves with water and crumpled them.  One flower has a few more layers. Which version do you like better?
