The stamps are 'Oriental Treasure' from Papermania, and the inks are Tim Holtz (Distress)
On this first card, we used 'Squeezed lemon', 'Stormy sky' and 'Chipped Sapphire' distress inks, applied with squares of 'cut n dry' foam. The lanterns were stamped and embossed with gold embossing powder. The blossom stamp is by Lavinia. Ta dah!
The second card involved stamping onto acetate with Stazon, which has gilding flakes behind it (using the double sided sticky paper - can't remember it's technical name, but you get the idea!) The background was coloured with a Copic pen, and the seam binding bow was coloured using a red Distress ink pad. The little coins in the corners were stamped onto red paper and embossed with gold Wow embossing powder.
Came home with delightfully inky fingers! Again, learned some great new techniques today, well out of my comfort zone - and will be using them again :)
