My stampin' up cards

I made these cards with my new Stampin' up goodies. I just love this stamp it's called Dandelion wishes. To stamp on the card I used Stamparatus wow so easy to use and must say got to be the first one I really like since having Rock a blocks. The sentiment is from the Dandelion wishes too.

 I used the old technique of small paint brush to to the effect. I used Stampin' up Poppy Parade, Bermuda Bay and Basic Gray ink. I added heart gems to the middle of the Dandelion wishes and added another heart to the Red bow and layered it card up.
 Another Dandelion wishes card just a little bit different this one. Only used Poppy Parade with the paint brush added silver gem to the middle of Dandelion wishes.Put red bow above the sentiment with silver gem on the red bow and layered the card up
This card I used Highland Heather Stampin' up ink. Random rolled the ink onto the card stamped on top. added silver gem to middle of Dandelion wishes and at bottom of the sentiment and layered the card  up.
