Stamp Review Crew: Vintage Leaves

SRC-Vintage-Leaves-bannerWelcome to the Stamp Review Crew’s latest blog hop, this time featuring the fabulous Vintage Leaves set from the Stampin’ Up! 2015-2016 Annual Catalog.  Are you arriving from Holly’s Rubber Redneck blog?  What a treat!

Why wouldn’t any stamper “fall” for this stamp set?  I did!  And I’ve stamped with it a lot, especially since I’m using it for next month’s Inkspiration Saturday.

There’s something about these images that just calls for crisp black and white.  I love the toile look — in clothing and home decor, too! — so I wanted a framed piece to hang somewhere.  This was harder to stamp than you might think, and I ended up with some discarded pieces that will work up nicely into cards.

Debra Burgin Leaf Toile Speaking of trial and error (much error!), I had an idea for this next card that I just couldn’t execute.  I first stamped in Whisper White Craft ink, dried it, then overstamped with … well, that was the problem.  You’d be amazed how many colors of card stock and ink I tried!  This is black ink (can you believe it?) on Tip Top Taupe; the white base changes the color of the ink.  So this isn’t exactly the card I envisioned, and I may just go back to the work table after this busy season to see if I can work it out.

Debra Burgin Black Frosted LeavesSo there you have it — not an autumn color used!  Now that was a challenge!  Hmmm … I wonder what beauties await us at Stamps & Scraps with Yapha.  Go check it out, and enjoy the rest of the hop!

    Your results are gorgeous! I am a toile lover too and that first card really resembles a good toile! I love, love, love the look of the second card too. That jute ribbon looks awesome on that pretty card!
