Bundle #1

Bundle #2

For this hop I I made two cards, both showcase these beautiful bundles. Here are my projects using the Ornate Style Stamp Set, the Ornate Layers Dies, the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set, and the Ornate Borders Dies:
For my first card, I used one of the frames from the Ornate Layers Dies to dry emboss my background panel made from Pretty Peacock Cardstock. I then stamped the main floral image in Memento Black Ink and used my blends to color it (Rich Razzleberry and Mint Macaron Blends). To finish it off, I added a few extra die cut flowers and pieces and some of the Ornate Garden Ribbon.
For my second card, I used one of the border dies to create the delicate edging of my first Mint Macaron panel layer. I also used the Ornate Floral Embossing Folder for added texture. I stamped my Peacock layer with the largest floral image in Pretty Peacock Ink. I fussy cut a few floral images from the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) and then colored them with Pretty Peacock Blends and placed them behind my sentiment. I finished this card off by adding a few of the Gilded Gems Embellishments. These are such gorgeous little gold gems that add just the right finishing touch to your projects. 
Here's a close-up of that lovely colored DSP and the perfect texture that that stunning embossing folder adds:

  1. These are lovely! The rich colours work so well. I like the way you've used the Ornate Frame to create a subtle embossed frame behind the bouquet. Gorgeous work, as always.

  2. You were on this! Beautiful projects my dear 💕

  3. Stunning as usual!!! Love the way you colored the flowers! 😃💕

  4. Lauren, my favorite is the second card design. The Mint Macaron, Pretty Peacock and Blackberry Bliss color combination was a great out of the box pick. The background looked amazing. The color on color die cut trim and the embossed floral background were wonderful choices. The Pretty Peacock stamped layer was a nice compliment without being too busy. The daisies were dressed for success in Pretty Peacock. Your coloring was spot on. The Blackberry Bliss die cut blossom was just the right pop of color! Amazing...thanks for the inspiration, I'm looking forward to the new catalog release. Have a great week.

    1. You are so kind! Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely comment. I'm so happy you liked my designs.

  5. Amazing colour combo and love the layering. Thanks for the inspo!

  6. Such beautiful cards, love the colour combinations it really suits this new set.

  7. Oh Lauren - this is STUNNING - I am such a big fan of your color combinations - always a dream!!!

  8. Can you tell a little more how you dry embossed instead of cutting the image out in your fist card?

    1. Hi! There are a number of ways that you can achieve this effect. You can use an embossing pad, which is a tool that works with your die cutting machine (there are a few different ones) or you can simply run the die through just as you would to emboss, only you could test out different layers of cardstock for added thickness.

  9. Please, help me to understand how you cut your words? I have so much trouble doing so? Beautiful cards! Thanks for sharing!

During the first year,I had faith in God that i would be healed someday.This disease started circulating all over my body and i have been taking treatment from my doctor, few weeks ago i came on research on the internet if i could get any information concerning the prevention of this disease, on my research, i saw a testimony of someone who has been healed from (Hepatitis B and Cancer) by this Man Dr EDES and she also gave the email address of this man and advise we should contact him for any sickness that he would be of help, so i wrote to Dr EDES, telling him about my (HERPES Virus) he told me not to worry that i was going to be cured!! hmm i never believed it,, well after all the procedures and remedy given to me by this man few weeks later i started experiencing changes all over my body as the Dr assured me that i have been cured,after some time i went to my doctor to confirmed if i have be finally healed behold it was TRUE, So friends my advise is if you have such sickness or any other at all you can email Dr EDES on : (dredeshome@gmail.com).....

  11. my husband and I have been married for about 7 yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the Internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr jeffrey can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he did a spell for me. Two days later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr jeffrey . If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you. This is his E-mail:
