Hey there, everyone, Daniel West here with one of my favorite ways to create different looks for a set of cards. I switch up the composition of the projects but keep the techniques the same.
For this set of cards I used with one of my favorite color palettes for spring -- pink, peach and green. I used some Life-changing Blender Brush action, heat-embossing and Copic coloring on both cards with the same color palette. So the feel of the cards stays the same while the look changes.

For my first card, I stamped the Endless Clouds stamp onto the panel horizontally a few times with WOW Embossing Ink. Then, I melted some WOW! White Puff Embossing Powdering over them with a heat tool.
Then, I brushed onto the front some Bellini Ink from Catherine Pooler in a gradient and stamped a horizon of grass on the bottom with from the A2 Tall Grass and Waves with Tiles and Wood Floors stamp set with In the Park Ink.
Next, I stamped images from Chloe's Garden stamp set out onto some X-Press It Card with Picket Fence Hybrid Ink and colored them in with W, YR and YG Copic markers. After that, I die cut them out with their coordinating dies and popped them up along the bottom of the card front with foam tape.
Then, I die cut some grass out with the die from the Hippity Hoppity to All dies and pressed it into the In the Park Ink pad. Next, I popped up the grass over the colored images with foam tape.
To finish off this card, I stamped a sentiment from the Chloe's Garden stamp set with Picket Fency Hybrid Ink and die cut it out with the coordinating die. Then, I popped it up with foam too, and glued down some Bunny Express Sequins.
For my second card, I did much the same, but masked off the top and bottom with Mint Tape and only heat embossed and inked up the unmasked section.
The grass and sequins are the same but I did not die cut grass for this one. The sentiment comes from the Hippity Hoppity to All stamp set and I fussy cut it out. Also, I trimmed the panel down a 1/4" on all sides and popped it up on foam tape over an A2 card base.
