Fresh Vintage- Two Challenges in One!

Hi Stampers! 

I have been admiring the inspiration photo at this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments HSSICC99Inspiration Challenge and decided to combine this challenge with the SSC237 sketchat Stamping 411.  Both Design Teams have done a fabulous job providing us with so much inspiration!   

This card utilizes Dry Embossing, Heat Embossing, Distressing, Background Stamp and an Embossing Folder.

To create this card:

Ink the floral stamp from Fresh Vintage with Bashful Blue and stamp onto Bashful Blue cardstock for the pennant strip and focal panel. Stamp the pennant piece with the background stamp, En Francais with Night of Navy and distress the edges with the Distressing Tool and mount onto Night of Navy cardstock. 

Use Versamark™ ink and stamp the floral spray image and the postage stamp onto Bashful Blue cardstock and apply Navy Stampin’ Emboss® Powder (retired).  Heat emboss with the Heat Tool, distress the edges of the focal image with the Distressing Tool, lightly sponge Night of Navy around the edges and mount onto Night of Navy cardstock.  Punch the postage stamp out with the 1” Square Punch and punch out a piece of Night of Navy cardstock with the Postage Stamp Punch. 

Brayer Night of Navy on the smooth interior side of the Finial Press Textured Impressions™ Folder, use the Big Shot™ to emboss a piece of Bashful Blue cardstock (distress the edges with the Distressing Tool and sponge Night of Navy lightly over the edges and panel).

Mount the cardstock panels, add the sentiment, pearls and 5/8” Night of Navy Grosgrain Ribbon (retired) to finish off the card.

 Ink: Versamark™, Bashful Blue, Night of Navy

Paper: Bashful Blue, Night of Navy

 Accessories:  Big Shot™, Finial Press Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Sponge Dauber, Heat Tool, Stampin’ Emboss® Navy Embossing Powder(retired), 5/8” Night of Navy Grosgrain Ribbon(retired), Pearls, Distressing Tool, Punches- Large Oval, Postage Stamp, 1” Square and Medium Oval (retired)
