Here's the first card I made with this set, using the new coloured embossing powders in Melon Mambo and Wild Wasabi. The frame for my sentiment is from another fabulous hostess set, Tagtastic.
Stamps: Precious Butterflies, Tagtastic, Texture jumbo wheel
Card: Crumb Cake, Whisper White
DSP: Wild Wasabi Patterns Designer Series Paper
Ink: Crumb Cake, Wild Wasabi and Basic Black stampin' pads, Versamark inkpad
Other: Melon Mambo and Wild Wasabi embossing powders, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Top Note die, Curly Label punch, 3/4" circle punch, sponge daubers, Basic Rhinestone
I then went for a completely different look, to incorporate a doily from the Flirtatious Designer Series Paper pack. I chose Melon Mambo and Pumpkin Pie as my feature colours. It's hard to see in the photo, but just above the black panel, I've stamped the circle of butterflies in Versamark ink (perhaps I should've used Melon Mambo. Ah well, I think the card's plenty bright enough as it is!).

I really like the first card. The second, not so much. Still, I'm having fun playing with my new goodies, and I will have plenty more to share with you in coming days and weeks!
