Bridal Roses


You know those stamp sets that you absolutely love and use over and over and over…and then a new mini or a new catalog comes out and you kind of neglect your former favorites?  It's sad…Lovely as a Tree, Just Buzzin' By, Upsy Daisy…and Elements of Style are some of those for me. 

The color challenge on splitcoaststampers this week was Blushing Bride, Baja Breeze and Crumb Cake, so I thought that would look great as a vintage card with Elements of Style. 


This was a pretty quick card.   I stamped the roses in Jet Black StazOn, then colored with Blushing Bride, Old Olive and More Mustard markers.  I added a little Moonlight smooch paint to some of the blooms and the bird's wings, and a little pearl for his eye.

Other things I've been neglecting – punches!  So I dug out my Pinking Hearts border and corner punches.

Except for the excess smooch on the top rose, I like it!  It kind of looks like someone was sipping Moonshine in the Moonlight while she was making the card, huh? 

Here's the complete supply list –
Stamp Set:  Elements of Style
Ink:  Jet Black StazOn; Blushing Bride, Old Olive, More Mustard stampin' write markers; Baja Breeze, Early Espresso classic
Paper:  Early Espresso, Baja Breeze, Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake card stock
Other:  Pearl Jewels, stampin' dimensionals, Early Espresso grosgrain, paper piercing tool, mat pack, linen thread, vintage trinkets, Pinking Hearts border & corner punches, Smooch paint (Moonlight), aqua painter, 3/4" x 15/16" oval punch

Everything on the card is sold in either the Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog or the Holiday Mini catalog, so contact me to order – or order online 24/7 on my web site.

Thanks for dropping by!  Tomorrow is the first of the owl punch calendar classes.  After Saturday, I'll have pics of all the owls with instructions posted.
