I attached the leafy branches and flourisesh to the projects with glossy accents.

  1. Kittie, BOTH of these images are SPECTACULAR! SO BEAUTIFUL! You have featured them PERFECTLY!!!!!!!!!!!! Your cards are STUNNING!!!!!!!!!!!!;)These are the images that POPPED OUT to me during this blog hop!

  2. Oh I love love both of these…I adore silhouettes…just ordered the seesaw stamp….looks like both of these stamped really well.
    Sometimes difficult fo silhouttes…love the colors and format of both cards. IO has a lot of great new stamps which are on the way to me.

  3. Beautiful silhouette cards. These images are really sweet and I love the pink and black and the red and black. Stunning.

  4. Looks great!! I love using Silhouette stamps, especially with sky designs that I sponge behind them. This is another idea to go with the few that I have. Thanks

  5. Beautiful. I love silhouettes and you did a wonderful job with these.
    Framing them really makes them pop and adding the embellishment at the top is a great idea.
    thanks for sharing two amazing cards

  6. Good Morning, Kittie, these are beautiful, good match of colors. and the double frame makes them pop. I don’t often use black embossing but sure will think of using more. You inspired me again…..have a good dayPatt

  7. Your use of the silhouettes on your cards is amazing. You do beautiful work and I love the colors you chose to use. Great job! TFS

  8. Beautiful cards, as usual! How did you get the die cuts so shiny? Does the black licorice card stock come that way? Thanks!

  9. Hi Judith, I’m sorry that I failed to mention in my post that I had cut the dies using black cardstock and then applied versa and black embossing powder. I wanted the embellishments to match the embossed silhouettes. I also applied versa and embossed around the oval frame on the pink project.

  10. Wow! Your cards are stunning! I love your creations! I love the look of the black embossing powder! Thanks for sharing!

  11. Silhouette cards to me are so nostalgic. Both cards have a very tender “feel” to them. I took my time soaking in all that they were about.

  12. Love your work!! Thanks for clarifying the layering technique of the swing card in the comments. Thanks for sharing!

  13. Love how you embossed and accented the cards with the branches and flourishes. Really sets the card off – especially with the double matting. Thanks for sharing

  14. As always I love your style and the uniqueness of your cards!
    The silhouette stamps are beautiful and you made them even better!!!
    Thank you for sharing your talents!

  15. These are beautiful! They contain such innocence and joy. A real picture of the live’s of children. I don’t think I ever realized how wonderful a silhouette could be. Thanks for widening my outlook and TFS.
