The last few weeks I have been playing around with some of the stamp sets (another little perk with being a demonstrator!). This is one of the cards I created. Using the stamp set ‘Bliss’, I went for a vintage feel. Still trying to get a grasp of this style, but I enjoyed creating it.
This set has so many great images to create a Vintage effect. On Very Vanilla card I stamped in Soft Suede and Crumb Cake. The edges were sponged in crumb cake. I think I should have done some spritzing too when I look at it again. I adhered the piece to a Soft Suede mat and distressed the edges. On the Crumb Cake base, I stamped the flower randomly over it. The butterflies were stamped in Baja Breeze onto scrap Very Vanilla card and cut out. I stamped a greeting from ‘Teeny Tiny Sentiments’ and created a flag notch with the square punch. The rosette is created with the Victoria lace from the Summer Mini. I just ran a straight stitch with a needle and thread and gathered it up and then shaped it into a circle. I finished it off with a couple of stitches to secure it. I added a Vintage brad to the centre before adhering it to the card with mounting tape.
I will show you some of the other cards I have been creating shortly, so pop back again soon. Until next time, Happy Stamping!
