Vintage Tag

Stampin' Up!, Sweetbriar Rose

This is a tag we’ll be making at the Stamping 101 class.  It looks a lot harder than it is!  This  class is on embossing, so there are a couple examples.

First, I stamped the Dictionary background in Crumb Cake ink on a 5-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ “tag” made from Very Vanilla card stock.  Then I stamped and embossed the Sweetbriar Rose in gold.  I used Pear Pizzazz and Blushing Bride classic ink with an aqua painter to color the flowers.

The rest is just embellishment.  I used Blushing Bride ink refill to color some Simply Pressed Clay, then shaped it into a rosebud.  After it dried, I added it to some gold ribbon, linen thread and a sponged doily.  I added more ribbon, some sequins, a punched butterfly and pearls.  As a final touch, I embossed a Mossy Meadow Clothespin with gold embossing powder.  I kept thinking as I looked at the finished product that something was missing.  Aaaah – I forgot to sponge.  Oh, well.  It’s “nouveau vintage.”

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy.  Have a wonderful day!
