I am finally getting back in to the swing of things after the Holidays. My studio is all re-organized and haven't tripped over anything yet!! My Christmas card burn-out is over and I am looking forward to another year of fun-tastic crafting!! Today I have a bright card that I made using a sketch (see sketch below) from Totally Paper Crafts. The stamps are all from Blockheads Stamps. The main image is from the Vintage Portraits set.
Stamps: Silhouette Portrait; Small Flower, Dots, and Thinking of You all from Blockhead Stamps
Ink: Adirondack Stream and Pesto Dye Ink from Ranger
CS: Vanilla, Mint and Cream
Lace, ribbon, and pearl cotton
Labels Eight Die cut from Spellbinders
The main image is stamped on cream CS with Stream dye ink and then cut out. Stamp the same image again with Stream ink on cream CS and once more with Pesto ink on cream CS. Cut out the lady from the image stamped with Pesto and just the hat decoration from the second image stamped with Stream ink. Layer the cut pieces on top of the original stamped image (paper piecing). Make card base from Vanilla CS. Die cut a piece from the mint CS. Stamp the dots on die cut with Stream ink.
Stamp nine of the small flowers with Stream ink on the mint CS; cut out. Glue lace a piece of lace and tow strands of the pearl cotton across the bottom on the card and add the flowers.
I stamped the flowers again on the inside and added a sentiment.
