Lovely Audrey Cards

Hi Gals,
I finally got a chance to try out my new stamps from The Stampsmith that I bought at the stamping show. I picked up this amazing set of Audrey Hepburn stamps. Well, I went crazy and made a whole bunch of them. I have two cards today for you.
Start out by stamping Audrey on glossy white CS with black dye ink. Then just layer away. CS: Almost Amethyst, Sahara Sand and Black from Stampin' Up. I used a dp that I have had for a long time- the black/white rose from DCWV. I added ribbon, flowers, pearls, and a sentiment from My Sentiments Exactly. Here is a detail shot. Isn't this an amazing stamp?!!

I have entered "Loving You Audrey" in the following fun challenges:

City Crafter - Isn't She Lovely

Sentimental Sundays - Lace or Ribbon

Opus Gluei - Use your stash

Fab n Funky- Flower Power

Bunny Zoe - Vintage

Aud Sentiments- Anything goes

Wild Orchid- Girly

Stamping Vacation- Lots of paper: use a paper with medium to large flowers.

And here is another Audrey card that I made to send to a friend.

Start the same way: with glossy white CS and black dye ink. I used a Spellbinders die and also added a torn Black layer of CS. The DP is from K & Company. And, I added a pretty moss green ribbon.

Well, that's all for me today...I'm worn out. Pheww. Need some r and r. Maybe I can find a nice movie to watch. Have a great day everyone.

Stampsmith has some terrific stamps and this is certainly one of them. I am a big fan of the old classic movies so I'm loving this image! Wonderful vintage feel to your card! I love the purple ribbon and the flowers with the touch of color. Perfect compliment to the image!

Thanks so much for playing along with the challenges at Stamping Vacation!
