Stamping 411 – Vintage Vogue again


It's time for another Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge!  This one came together pretty easy.  Mainly because my Stamp Club did a similar card last night using the same colors and stamp set, but I changed it around so I could make it fit the sketch!  Now it shows those in my Stamp Club who bought this set, another way to use it!


I started with a base of Dusty Durango cardstock.  The next layer of Soft Suede I ran thru the Big Shot with my FInial Press Impressions Folder, then I used a sponge dauber and added Soft Suede Classic Ink around the edges, and lightly ran it across the raised portions of the embossed cardstock to highlight them.  I wrapped some Dusty Durango Polka Dot Ribbon around to the back and secured to the base card. 


I inked the border image from Vintage Vogue by using my Dusty Duranto and Soft Suede Stampin' Write Markers and colored the images I wanted in each color.  I stamped at the bottom of the Whisper White cardstock.  The flowers were stamped on scrap Whisper White and cut out.  I used a 1/2 punched circle of Soft Suede for the center of the larger flower, then a Gold Fire Rhinestone Brad.  The two smaller flowrers have Gold Mini Brads.  I added some leaves randomly in the upper left corner, then placed the flowers with Dimensionals.  The Whisper White was mounted on Bashful Blue ( I know!  But the color works!)  I stamped "The more Candles the bigger the Wishes" from Whimsical Words,  in the Sale-A-Bration Mini, in Soft Suede ink in the upper right corner.  Finally, I added a small border of Dusty Durango punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch (another Sale-A-Bration freebie) and pierced holes in each of the spaces between the scallops!

Make sure to check out what the rest of the Stamping 411 Operators have done this week!  I'm sure they will have fabulous ideas with this sketch!

This is truly a lovely card.  Dusty Durango is my least favorite of this year's In Colors, but you have encouraged me to look at it again.  Thanks for sharing!
