    Bundle #2
      For this hop 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 layered on a panel of Vellum and then a second panel of that gorgeous Mint Macaron patterned paper from the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP). I used one of the border dies from the Ornate Borders Dies made from Pretty Peacock Cardstock to layer under my sentiment. I created a two-toned sentiment by inking and stamping my sentiment in Pretty Peacock Ink, allowing it to dry completely, and then inking the lower portion of that same stamp in Versamark Ink. I then added some Gold Embossing Powder and set it. The flower image was colored with both Mint Macaron Blends and Pretty Peacock Blends. To finish it off, I added a few extra die cut flowers, some of those gorgeous Gilded Gems, and some of the Ornate Garden Ribbon.
      My second card is a bit more simple, but because this suite is so versatile, it makes any card look divine with very little effort. I used one of the border dies to create the delicate edging of my first Rich Razzleberry panel layer. I also used the Ornate Floral Embossing Folder for added texture. The tiny little dots of Peacock color are the pieces that were popped out from the border die used in the previous card. I thought they fit perfectly as centers for my flower elements. I stamped a few of those sweet little flowers and colored them with my Blends. 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 Floral Embossing Folder and the perfect texture that it adds:
