Parisian Postcard with Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps -Pattern on Pattern Paper & Freestyle Collage Stamping-

I’ve been spending time in my craft room playing with stamps by Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps. I love to have a chance to use my inks and clear stamps to create collages. Today I’m using the first clear stamp set I ever designed, Parisian Postcard.

Main Supplies:Die cuts – Spellbinders: Elegant Ovals, A2 Matting Basics A, Ferns, Classic Ovals LG / Die-namites: Ramona Flower / Memory Box: Botanical Stem
Stamps – Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps Parisian Postcard by Graciellie Design
Inks – Clearsnap Colorbox: -Love- Paintbox, Teresa Collins -Fierce- Petal Point
Paper – Heavyweight vellum / blue iridescent cardstock / pink leather textured cardstock / white opaline cardstock
Tools – Acrylic stamping blocks / Evolution Advanced Die cutting machine / Westcott Paper Trimmer / Scissors / Mini Minc machine
Other – Therm O Web: Gold Deco Foil, Mixed Media Adhesive, Foam Squares, Zots Small / Air Dry Clay / Stampendous Frantage Shabby Pink embossing enamel / Clearsnap Colorbox Clear embossing powder / Eyelet Outlet Pink pearls

This pretty stamp set gives you so many possibilities. I created a subtle collage on the background and framed it with die cuts I arranged around the oval frame with a stamped Eiffel Tower from the same set.
As to other techniques, I created my own specialty cardstock printing a polka dot pattern over a floral pattern, that I then foiled in gold. It gives the card a truly unique look. To add a delicate touch, I stamped in white and heat embossed in clear a couple of butterflies on vellum, adhered an air dry clay heart I made, and added pink pearls to the floral die cuts.

This freestyle collage card has no sentiment, as I felt it didn’t need one with all the elements it has already. It sure was a fun and delightful card to make and it felt like I was revisiting old stamping times.

I invite you to come take a closer look to this classic stamp set at Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps and join the conversation on social media using #gracielliedesign. Thanks so much for stopping by. Until next time!
