Pinkfresh Studio - Simple and Layered Card Designs

Hi everyone! I’m on the Pinkfresh Blog today, sharing two very different card designs. One clean and simple, the other layered with loads of trimmings.
Although I’ve become a fan of the clean look, I must admit, I still love layering. I guess some things will never change!

For my first card, I’m sharing the CAS version. Since I love dimension and movement, I thought it would be fun to try some negative die-cutting, along with a bit of stamping. Although this card has a few layers, it still utilizes a lot of white space, and many less layers than I'm accustomed to ;)

To start my card, I used the Braided Circles die for the dotted circles. I used the Classic Tags with Fillable Elements dies to add a floral design inside each circle, and backed them with some teal cardstock.

For my accents, I used the gorgeous new Floral Cluster stamps and dies, heat-embossing the floral image, and colouring it up with Copic markers. 
A teal and lilac sentiment to finish, and of course, a few jewels to sparkle things up a bit!

Next up, I fully immersed this card with layers and heaps of texture. I added in everything from ink blending, to stamping, to washi and die-cut bits.

First up, I blended some ink onto my card base, using Distress Oxide hues. I then stamped the beautiful Eucalyptus Fantasy stamp design along one edge and heat-embossed it. I used my Copic markers to colour in the little leaves, in shades slightly darker than the ink blending. On the other side, I added two strips of the Watercolor Fantasy washi tape. I love this washi so much! It's especially pretty when combined with watercolor or ink-blended designs. The colors are sooo pretty and I love that it looks as if you took hours to make it yourself. 

To trim the card, I added some die-cut accents, using the Beautiful Blooms die set, and I finished things off with a lacy ribbon.  The sentiment is from the Floral Cluster stamp set - which I heat-embossed on some ink-blended cardstock. I also added in a few ink splatters all around the card. 

What do you think?? Which type of card do you prefer: CAS or all layered up?
