Stampin' Up's Heartfelt Event - Perth Regionals 25th August, 2012 - Part 4

Hi Crafters,
Today I have a few more cards that I made for Stampin' Up's Heartfelt Event in Perth.  I stamped the flowers on the first card on Vellum and embossed them with White Embossing Powder.  I then punched the flowers again in Whisper White  and backed them behind the Vellum and cut them to shape. 
Embossing on Vellum
Stamps:  S/U's Mixed Bunch, Four Frames, Petite Pairs
Card: Whisper White, Vellum
Inks: Versamark
Finishing Touches: White Organdy Ribbon, Pearls from Pretties Kit (R)
Tools: Big Shot, Embossing Buddy, Heat Tool, White E/Powder, Pewter E/Powder, Decorative Label Punch, Eyelet Border Punch, Lace Ribbon Border Punch, Sizzix Polka Dot E/Folder, Blossom Punch, Dble Sided Tape, Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots, 2 Way Glue Pen, Fiskars Trimmer and Scoring Tool
 Ribbon Flower Created with the Heat Tool, Basic Embossing
The Ribbon Flower Tutorial by Kelly Acheson can be found here.
I did find that the Organdy Ribbon is very sensetive to heat and you need to hold your heat tool a bit further away so you don't cook it.  The Satin Ribbon is less heat sensative and needs a warmer heat to make it curl.

Stamps: S/U's Marry Me, Tiny Tags
Card: Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Versamark, Stazon Black
Finishing Touches: White Organdy Ribbon, Brad
Tools: Big Shot, Sizzix Vintage Wallpaper E/Folder, Pinking Hearts Border Punch, Tag Punch, 1 3/4" Circle Punch, Sticky Strip, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Embossing Buddy, Heat Tool, Pewter E/Powder, Fiskars Trimmer and Scoring Tool, Dble Sided Tape, Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dot
