Clean & Simple Versus Elegant Layers

I hope everyone had a Happy Easter yesterday, and didn't get fooled to easily for April fools!

Today I wanted to show you 2 different cards using the same CTMH stamp set, B1592 From the Bottom of My Heart Sold as part of a Workshop Your Way Kit 

The First on here is a very simple one layer card, but still nice enough to give to someone,

For the ink I used Sapphire for the sentiment, Sweet Leaf for the leaves, and Hollyhock for the heart(discontinued but Blossom would be just as good)

It probably took me 5 minutes to complete

This second card I made still using the same stamp set, is a little more complex, I added layers with the papers included in the kit( link above) and added silver embossing
Again using the Sapphire ink for the sentiment, for the wreath I used clear Versamark ink to adhere the silver embossing powder, then heat set it, I fussy cut out the little flower after coloring it with Copics, and added a little shimmer with the clear shimmer brush.  Finally I popped up the center flower with a foam dot for a little dimension.
Close up to see the shine 

This one took closer to 20 minutes from start to finish

While they are both drastically different, each card looks just as nice, so whether you are a beginner or an expert the possibilities for creativity are endless.
