Hello! Rubeena here featuring two cards where I did minimal stamping. :) Butterfly Reflections Ink is having a sale until July 12 so take advantage of some of the in-stock items now. For these cards, I was inspired by yesterday's technique with embossing paste, stencils, and layers.

Some color combinations are so elegant! White, black, and gold is one of them. I started off with this fun MFT Mix-ability Tiny Triangles Stencil and Dreamweaver Matte Black Embossing Paste and embossed diagonally on white cardstock. using my trimmer, I cut down the piece as shown below. There were no measurements, I went with the flow. :) I taped it down on A2 cardbase with foam tape for dimension.

Next, I die-cut Lawn Fawn's Scripty Congrats Lawn Cuts from metallic gold cardstock and black cardstock. I used Altenew's Doodle Blooms dies to cut out three of the leaves dies and stamped the leaves from Altenew's Doodle Blooms with Delicata gold ink. I also die-cut the small butterfly from WPlus9's Small Butterfly Frame Die from metallic gold cardstock. 

I arranged all the pieces as shown on my card and finished it off with drops of Irresistable Gold Pico Embellisher

What do you think of that texture? Amazing, right?! Love how this turned out. 

My next card is similar but I wanted to be bolder. Red, black, and white is another amazing combination I love. For this one, I used MFT's Bold Paisley Stencil and Avery Elle's Simply Said Amazing Elle-ments Die

I used the same embossing paste, trimmed it down, and taped it to A2 cardbase with foam tape. I decided to add the sentiment diagonally along the embossed piece. I stamped the Doodle Blooms stamp with a red ink over the Delicata gold. 

I finished this one off with gold and red Pico Embellisher dots.

You can see both my cards below. I hope you enjoyed today's inspiration and can use similar techniques!
