Vintage Vogue

Since my Kaleidoscope Designer Paper was already sitting out, I decided to make up another card.  I wanted to show Vintage Vogue dressed up for spring!  I love this set!  The piece I cut from the Kaleidoscope DSP was PERFECT to hold a circle in the center and make it look like an extra mat.  Totally unplanned!

 

I started with a base of Apricot Appeal cardstock and layered the Kaleidoscope DSP on Basic Black to make the colors pop!  I used one side with the print and the other side was the stripe at the bottom.  I cut a circle with my Circle Scissors Plus in the 2" size from Certainly Celery cardstock and stamped the vine image from Stampin' Up!'s Vintage Vogue stamp set.  I added the Thank You from Short & Sweet set in Basic Black Classic Ink.  The flowers I stamped on Very Vanilla in Apricot Appeal and Pretty in Pink and cut them out.  The smaller flowers, I placed Apricot Appeal Mini Brads, the large flower has a Pretty in Pink floral button!  I stamped and cut out two of the small leaves for the large flower.  Finally, I added a Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon bow!  Have I mentioned I LOVE the Satin Ribbon???  I'm still selling Ribbon Shares (in fact, I only need 1 more person to finish up the next order!)  See more information HERE.

 

I'm starting on the countdown for my LONG weekend Stamping Retreat!  We leave tomorrow afternoon.  My girlfriend is coming in tonight!  I can't wait to see her!  But…I have LOTS to do before she gets here, so I'll cut this short!

Hope you have a great day!

Love this!   I did not have any interest in the kaleidoscope dsp before.  Now, well gee…maybe I have to shop some more!
