Spritzed & Splattered with LOVE!

This week our challenge at Classy Cards ‘n Such is: Letter It, in other words use a letter or more on your creation! I went ahead and used some letter stickers on my mixed media freestyle collage card! This is the first card I make with my new stamp set by SNSS, Parisian Postcard.

Main supplies
Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps Parisian Postcard
Dies: Cheery Lynn Designs English Tea Party, Vintage Flourish Pattern   
White Pearl Linen cardstock
Stardream Rose Quartz metallic cardstock
Heavyweight Vellum 
1/2″ Scor-Tape
Empty Spritzer Bottle   
Seam Binding – Chalk White 
Baby Pearls – LeCreme 
Gold detail

To make my card, I stamped, colored and heat embossed images from the NEW stamp set Parisian Postcard from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps, that I happened to design (yay!). I stamped some images on the background, some I heat embossed in gold detail on heavyweight vellum and others I fussy cut and mounted using foam tape on a pretty label die cut with Our Daily Bread Designs Vintage Flourish Pattern from White Pearl Linen cardstock. I stenciled the label with Spun Sugar Distress ink.

The top half beige layer was stamped, heat embossed and also sprayed with a mix of Peeled Paint Distress re-inker and water using a spritzer bottle. The bottom half of the base mat was cut from the gorgeous Stardream Rose Quartz metallic cardstock. I cut a doily from vellum with the English Tea Party die from Cheery Lynn Designs, cut it in half and adhered it on top of the pink layer with thin pieces of 1/2″ Scor-tape.

Before adding the fussy cut images to the label I attached a piece of Chalk White Seam Binding, that I colored and wrinkled by spraying it with the same Peeled Paint Distress ink mix. I completed the card with a few Baby Pearls Le-Creme that go along very well with the vintage design and spritzed Perfect Pearls Mist in Biscotti and a bit more of Peeled Paint spray. I adhered the finished layer on a white mat cut with A2 Matting Basics, using 1/2″ Scor-tape and then mounted it on a white card base.

  1. A beautiful Vintage card and I love the romantic feel to it. Cutting your CL Doily with Vellum gives it such a feminine feel. Thanks for joining in the challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs and good luck.
