Hello! It’s with great pleasure that I write this post, because today I’ll share with you a card where I use one of my favorite stamp sets out there. And the best of all is, that I was given this set as part of a prize won at Sweet & Sassy Stamps. I had it on my wishlist and I’m so grateful I have it now.
Vintage cards are a delight to me, I enjoy making them greatly. And because this set is customizable, I was able to incorporate another of my new favorite stamp sets, one that I fought hard to get: Flourishes’ Flowers for Jan. So with no further delay here is my card for today:
Sweet & Sassy – Vintage Seed Packet
Flourishes – Flowers for Jan
Spectrum Noir – PP5, PP3
Faber Castell watercolor pencils – 063, 074
Ranger Distress Inks – Vintage Photo, Worn Lipstick, Old Paper
Ranger blender tool
Brilliance pigment ink – Graphite Black
Memento dye ink – Rich Cocoa
Hero Arts Cleardesign Block – Large Letter
Praise rotary circle cutter
Merletto crystal stickers
Other generic materials
3/8″ Gross grain ribbon – light brown
Textured cardstock in Sand
Hawaii cardstock in White
I wanted to keep it simple, the card itself is the seed packet! I did create a window with a circle cutter, so that the Peony could stand out. And that is also why I stamped the flowers on white card stock. I combined to different coloring techniques, but because of the way I did it you can’t tell immediately that the leaves are actually water colored while the flowers were colored with markers. I distressed the card with pink and brown, that way the tones of color coordinate with the flowers. I love the vintage look of it. To finish it I added some crystals and brown ribbon. It sure feels antique and for some reason fresh at the same time. Must be that wonderful pink Peony… 😀
I really hope you enjoy this card as much as I do. I’m in love with these two stamp sets, and I’m also glad that I could mix them together.
Have a good day!
