Bonjour...creative card


(Beautiful creations and posting by Angelica Turner - BLOG)

Today I have a vintage inspired card featuring a couple of stamps from Stampin' D'Amour, for the base of the card I used a Spellbinders Labels Seventeen, the paper is from Autumn Leaves. For the flower I used a Sizzix die called Flower Layers #3 with patterned papers from the same line as the card base, I shaped the petals with an embossing tool and glimmer misted them for a touch of sparkle. The leaves I made using a die from Cuttlebug. The wonderful stamped image was stamped with StazOn, and inked with aged mahogany Distress Ink.

"Oo-La-La Card..."

I have been playing with some vintage inspired stamps, today I have this card with a very elegant image from "Stampin' D'Amour", this image is part of their "French Vintage" clear stamp set. I stamped the image twice on Canson paper and colored it with pearlescent watercolor paints, they have the perfect amount of shimmer, once colored I cut one image and adhered it with pop dots, the small crown image on the yellow die cut piece is also from the "French Vintage" set. I used some of my favorite paper from the "Que Sera Sera" collection from K & Co., love the color scheme, so bright and cheerful.
