Today, I get to show you two of the cards I have made. The first card uses the set Tea Time in combination with the Medallion background. Lookie:
GOJUS! (YILM!) I stamped the background with Memento Summer Sky ink, purposefully wiping a little ink off the stamp in the upper left corner so that I could stamp the greeting without a lot of busy-ness behind it. I used an older set of dies called Lavish Layers to cut the white lacey base, then used the Pierced Rectangle dies to cut the stamped background.
I used some May Arts ribbon from Ribbon Resource.
I colored the tea pot and the roses with Copic markers and cut both out with the matching Tea & Roses dies.
The other card I am showing you today uses the Good Day stamp set.
GOJUS! (YILM!) I used a technique that I developed way back when called Sepia Photo. Except this time, instead of using Very Vanilla craft ink, which is no longer available, I had to come up with something else. I found that Antique Linen Distress paint worked perfectly.
I used Memento Rich Cocoa ink, stamping on Kraft cardstock, adn then used the Antique Linen paint to create the highlights. I then added middle tones with the Rich Cocoa ink.
I used the Lavish Layers dies to create the edge on this cherry wood tape for a rich embellishment.
Pearls make the perfect accent for this very vintage card.
I used both the Pierced Rectangles and Pierced Circle dies to create all the layers. A bit of Antique Gold ribbon from May Arts and a bit of retired Blushing Bride pleated satin ribbon complete the ravishing details.
