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.
