New Ribbon and Old Lace

Stampin' Up!, I Love Lace, Blended Bloom

This isn’t really old lace.  In fact, it’s a brand new background stamp – I Love Lace.  It’s so pretty.  I almost passed it by, and now I’m so glad I ordered it after all.

I stamped the lace in Versamark on Very Vanilla card stock, then embossed with clear powder.  I sponged with a little Hello Honey, Blushing Bride and a teeny tiny bit of Crumb Cake ink.  There’s also a little Smoky Slate in there, but that was a mistake that turned out ok.  I love how the edges didn’t get embossed, because it makes it look more like old lace.  You know I did that on purpose, right?

I wanted a softer image, so I stamped and embossed the Blended Bloom flower on vellum card stock.  Then I colored it on the back with Blushing Bride, Crisp Cantaloupe, Hello Honey and Calypso Coral markers.  I stamped it again on Very Vanilla card stock, cut out both images and layered the vellum over the card stock so it would pop just a bit.  I die cut leaves (also from vellum) using the new Flower Frenzy Bigz L die for the Big Shot.  After I cut them out, I sponged them with a little Mossy Meadow ink.

I’m loving the new 1/4″ cotton ribbon!  I used Blushing Bride on this card.  It’s so soft and easy to work with.  And, finally, the sentiment is from Petite Pairs.  I stamped it on Very Vanilla card stock and punched with the hexagon punch.

My UPS man just dropped off a package – and it’s … well, it’s not even half as big as I thought it would be.  I need to see what’s in there and find out if it’s packed really, really well or if he left a box on the truck.  Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy!  Have a wonderful day.
