adventures with labels collection framelits

The white and gold Fab Friday anniversary challenge made me want to recreate this fabulous card by Bridget Sandoval.  I changed the background and base to Crumb Cake, and I sponged the base.  I didn't have any gold brads, so I dipped my silver brads in Versamark and gold Stampin' Emboss powder and heated them.
stamp sets - Cheerful Christmas, Gorgeous Grunge, Lovely as a Tree; ink - Whisper White craft, Versamark; Stampin' Dazzle marker - Gold (on envelope); Stampin' Emboss powder - gold, white; card stock - Crumb Cake, Vellum; accessories - mini brads, Stampin' Dimensionals; tools - Big Shot with Labels Collection framelit, Stampin' Sponge, heat tool
I will be linking up at Addicted to Stamps and More for the Holiday challenge and at Pile It On because it's shiny, as well.

While I had the Labels Collection Framelits out, I thought about how much I like the second-smallest label, but I don't use it often enough.  So I looked for a sentiment that would fit, and turned to my current favorite stamp set.  I combined it with the colors in the inspiration photo at Just Add Ink, and the Deconstructed sketch I had laying on my desk:
stamp set - Kinda Eclectic; ink - Tangelo Twist, Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Coastal Cabana; card stock - Coastal Cabana, So Saffron, Old Olive, Melon Mambo; punches - Bitty Butterfly, Elegant Butterfly; Big Shot with Labels Collection framelit;  Stampin' Dimensionals

Your cards are beautiful, Kathe. I particularly love how you've used butterflies, rather than flowers, on your card inspired by our challenge. Thanks for joining in the fun at Just Add Ink this week!

Two really beautiful cards, Cathe! I love the vellum with your color combo on the first one, and how you layered all those sweet elements on the 2nd one!

Love the gold card! The snow under the trees and the big label sentiment are great! Super smart to use the embossing powder to change the color of your brads! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!
