Vintage love

Debra Burgin Vintage LoveHere is the swap card I am exchanging at the Stampin’ Addicts’ gathering this evening at Leadership in Nashville, TN.  It is also a card we are making this month at stamp camp.  (How’s that for working smarter?)

I had such fun working with this stamp for the recent SA Occasions Mini blog hop that I just kept going.  This time I incorporated the wonderful First Edition Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP).  This lighter-weight paper is perfect for layering and creating pleated rosettes and the scrunched-up flowers that are still so popular.  Love it!

To get the embossed frame colored, simply lightly brayer the color over — you may want to hold a piece of scratch paper over the areas you don’t want colored, as it’s a bit hard to miss the center with this folder when you’re brayering.  On the other hand, this is a shabby chic look, and we don’t expect perfection, do we?

Stamps:  Be My Valentine*, Always (p. 69), Tiny Tags (p. 130)

    Wow, I love this. The touch of ribbon and lace with the glimmer brad make it elegant and not to sugary. Perfect.
