This week they decided to give us this beautiful Vintage photo for inspiration with the challenge to create two looks of the same card- one for “day” and another for “evening”.
I decided to focus on the glorious browns and spice colors from the atomizer (it is in the middle between the two lovely shoes).
Stamps: Bella Toile Background , Greenhouse Garden and Favorite Thoughts
Ink: More Mustard, Early Espresso
Cardstock: More Mustard, Early Espresso, Cajun Craze
Accessories: Big Shot, Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, Victoria crochet trim, sponge daubers
Stamp the Bella Toile Background onto More Mustard. Cut the cardstock in half (with the lower half being approx two-thirds of the cardstock). Sponge Early Espresso around the edges. Attach layers to Cajun Craze. Cut a length of the Victoria trim crochet and attach to the exposed Cajun Craze area of the card front. Attach the Cajun Craze layer to Early Espresso for the card front.
Stamp the Greenhouse Garden floral image in Early Espresso over the Bella Toile Background in the center of the upper piece (make sure that you have enough cardstock on both sides of the image for the next step). Punch this out with the 1 3/8" punch (don't worry- the hole will be covered with the layered pieces when you are finished- no one would be the wiser:-) Once you clean your stamp, use the Embossing Buddy and with Versamark ink, stamp the floral image again over the stamped Early Espresso image. Sprinkle on Clear Embossing Powder and set with the Heat Gun. Sponge Early Espresso around the edges. Cut out a 1 1/2" circle of Cajun Craze and a 1 3/4" circle of Early Espresso. Sponge the edges of the Cajun Craze layer. Attach the floral image to the center of the layer at the top of the card.
Using the Large Oval Punch, cut out an oval from Cajun Craze and run through the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. Sponge Early Espresso over the edges and lightly on the raised images. Attach to the lower part of the card. Using the sentiment from Favorite Thoughts, stamp with Early Espresso onto More Mustard. Cut out image and sponge around the edges with Early Espresso. Attach to card front layering onto the Oval Embellishment. Take another length of the Victoria crochet trim to create a bow and use a Antique Brad in the center. Attach to the center under the floral image.
Final step- Spray entire card with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint Mist (Champagne Shimmer Paint mixed with 70% isoprophyl alcohol), again protecting the crochet trim from the spray.
I hope you like these two- they were a lot of fun to make!
Thanks for looking- God Bless!
