I believe this is the 'pampered stamper's' choice of colour, very nice Pam!
Just love the combination.
I've made the card to fit the stencil.
The second photo shows you the three products I used for this project.....
Dreamweaver stencil LX7015 (brand new)
Floral Punch Craft punch FPC3-01 splat
Floral Punch Craft punch FPC1-01 stamens
The greeting comes from my JGCL519 Essential Birthdays
To make the flowers you need two splat shapes plus a stamen shape for the middle and all these have been punched from yellow card and paper, card for the splat is best.
I have coloured the blobs on the ends of the splat using a yellow marker pan, allow it to dry then place upside down on the moulding mat and use an embossing tool and the 'cup' character technique to create little round bowl shapes. Then turn over and do the same in the middle, simples!
Layer and stick two together and add a stamens punch in the middle which has been given the same colouring and shaping as the splat. You will need to use a very small embossing head for this shape. Finish off with a little gem in the middle of the stamens shape, yellow stars look good.
I've put the stencil through the BigShot machine using the extra mat from Dreamweaver, it worked a treat on the grey card.

No photos yet as I don't have the right connection cable to the iPad!! Just to let you all know I'm having a fabulous time here in Jasper in the Rocky Mountains, Canada. The weather is just great and the scenery even better, in fact it's amazing, just takes your breath away. I've seen brown bears, deer, long whiskered squirrels, marmots and chipmunks. Enjoying the posts on the Woodware blog.

One of the stamp images from my JGCL522 Jewel Garden set makes up this pretty round card.
The image is made to look like a brooch, has been gold embossed onto
black card, coloured with pearlescent paints from a USArtQuest palette.
I've then put crackle accents over the green gems and added tiny yellow pearls.
The black scallop circle is from punch number 840-07 and I've decorated the edge with pearlescent paint too and some small circles left over from a sheet of peel offs.

Let your imagination run wild with Mercart metal!
On my card today I have drawn my own image - keeping it simple- onto paper and then traced the outline onto the metal with a biro.
Using the different teflon tools and a soft and hard surface, I have drawn the image
and embossed from both sides of the metal.
I have used the teflon tool to draw in the 'worm trails' all around the image to give the metal a textured background. It's easy to do....just scribble away all over the metal using a light pressure.
I have used the decorative wheel around the edge which I think leaves a nice border to finish it off.
I have then used a black and green permanent ink with some thinners which I have wiped all over the surface to give it a bit of colour.
The stamp around the edge of the base card is a Magenta stamp 28034-I.
