I realy love this stamp set, Forever Young, from the current Stampin' Up! main catalogue. I haven't played with it nearly enough, so last week I put together this 'little bit vintage' creation.
Even though I haven't used it here, I took my inspiration for the colour scheme from the matching Timeless Portrait Designer Series Paper - River Rock, Island Indigo and Riding Hood Red (the DSP has Cherry Cobbler, but i used Riding Hood Red so I could sneak in a piece of twitterpated paper left over from another project :) ). There's also Black and Very Vanilla.
Some features of today's card:
- I just LOVE the First Edition newsprint DSP. I have literally used packs and packs of it this year. Such a great basic and so great for stamping on :) I have used it to both stamp on and as a layer here.
- Of course in the true Stampin' up! style of 'this goes with that', you can see that I have punched the embossed image out with the Extra Large Oval Punch. which fits perfectly inside the oval of the embossed Designer Frames Textured Impressions Embossing Folders. Love how they do that :)
- Love how the Labels Framelits can be used in so many ways to frame an image too :) You can place them in all sorts of ways to get different effects. In this card the Island Indigo one is clear embossed using the matching (oooh there's that matching word again!) Apothecary Art stamp set, and the other one is from the Twitterpated DSP.
I hope you enjoy todays card and it makes you want to run to the craft room and get creating! Happiness is messing up your crafting table!
Have a fabulous week,
