Notably Ornate- Needing Some Love :-)

Hi Again Stampers!

There was an unofficial challenge posed on Splitcoast Stampers for us to use a stamp set that we just “had to have” but have essentially neglected after purchase.  I have quite a list of stamp sets that I had to have from the catalog and one of those is Notably Ornate. 

I love the style of this set, but for some reason, have not taken the time to create with it.  I decided to use the frame and oval image for this card and combined it with Artistic Etching and a few other challenges- the FMS28 Freshly Made Sketch along with the CCMC195 colors from Create with Connieand Mary.  

To create this card:

Ink the frame image using Versamark™ ink onto So Saffron cardstock, apply Stampin’ Emboss® Silver Embossing Powder and heat emboss with the Heat Tool.  Once the image has cooled, carefully cut around the edges of the frame.    

Use a Versamark™ Marker to ink the edges of the oval stamp from Notably Ornate and repeat the embossing steps above.

Using Poppy Parade ink, stamp the ornate circle from Artistic Etchings onto another piece of So Saffron and the crown image in the center of the oval.

Heat emboss the Eiffel Tower from Artistic Etchings, allow to cool and emboss with the Designer Oval Frame Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder. Carefully cut around the edges of the embossing folder and the Eiffel Tower. 

With the Big Shot™ emboss a piece of Poppy Parade cardstock with the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder (I inked the smooth interior with Poppy Parade ink prior to embossing) and emboss a piece of Poppy Parade Designer Series Paper (retired Hostess Level I Paper Patterns Pack In Color).

Assemble the layers, add the 5/8” Basic Gray Satin Ribbon bows and Rhinestone to finish off the card. 

Stamp Sets: Notably Ornate, Artistic Etchings, Short and Sweet

Cardstock:  Basic Gray, So Saffron, Poppy Parade

Ink: Versamark™, Poppy Parade

Accessories: Big Shot™, Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder- Vintage Wallpaper, Designer Frame (Oval), Vintage Wallpaper,  Heat Tool, Stampin’ Emboss® Silver Embossing Powder, 5/8” Basic Gray Satin Ribbon, Rhinestone

Thanks again for visiting and all of your encouragement!  I hope all of you have a wonderful Easter week and try to find time to stamp!

I love your interpretation, and the colours. Beautiful card, it reminds me of the vividness of "moulin rouge"

I just ordered this stamp set tonight as I'm a little slow sometimes in keeping up with everyone else. I hope I "make" myself ink it up quicker than you did. Great job on the color challenge. Nice to see you at Create with Connie & Mary!

Mary Brown said...

Oh how pretty Julie! I have plenty of those kind of sets too! LOL!! You really made it work with these colors - GORGEOUS! Thanks for playing along this week in the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!

Well, naturally, you rocked it! I agree with Oona...very moulin rouge. It's lovely. I really like the embossing on the images...adds a little sparkle. Thanks for playing the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge this week!
