1/6 Stampin' Up! Fresh Vintage



Sale-a-bration is coming up so I've been getting a few samples ready for my Occasions Mini/Sale-a-bration Open House on January 24. If you are in the Twin Cities area and would like to drop by my Open House, you are more than welcome to drop by my home in Lino Lakes. Just send me a quick e-mail so that I know you are coming and I'll send some more details out to you. This card features one of the Sale-a-bration sets that customers can get FREE with a $50 order. The paper on this card from the pack called Everyday Enchantment is also a Sale-a-bration Reward Item.

I used the Labels Framelit die to make the image panel for this card. I actually cut two frames the same size, one in Very Vanilla and one in Chocolate Chip. I cut the Chocolate Chip frame in half the long way and layered it behind the vanilla panel. The strips behind the image panel are not paper . . . they are ribbon! It's so elegant and shimmery IRL! I used 5/8" Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon for the middle with 3/8" Soft Suede Taffeta on each side. I had no idea it would turn out to be so striking!

I stamped the image several times on scrap with a variety of colors found in the background paper and then punched pieces of them out using circle punches. I just loved how this card turned out and hope I can pass some inspiration along to you today, too!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

What a great way to add color without using several different markers on the stamp!
