CPS #131 and Stampin' Up

The exciting sponsor at Card Postioning Systems blog for this entire week is Jennifer Buck, an independent Stampin' Up demonstrator.
I not only picked out a great set of stamps to work with but I also picked out one of their embossing plates since I LOVE using those things, especially with Core'dinations cardstock.
I used a piece of cardstock from The Chocolate Box collection. This is amazing paper to use with the embossing plates. When I sanded it, you can see the brown cardstock with that great blue core. The butterfly was inked with a blue ink and embossed with clear embossing powder and a little border of color was added to the label with Copic markers.
I used the same basic CPS sketch for an additional card, I just made the card base a different size.
I also picked one of Stampin' Ups texture plates and used it with this Black Magic cardstock. You can see the black cardstock with the blue core showing through when I sanded it. The same butterfly was stamped with black ink on blue cardstock and then cut out.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Great cards as usual. I'm going to have to go check out these new embossing plates. I've only got three and clearly that can't be enough.

Thanks for joining my followers.
