Hi Blog Friends,
I am posting two cards this evening using the same stamps, a set called Vintage Lingerie available from Creative Expressions. For the first card I pierced around the edges of an 8x8 piece of white cardstock using one of the dies from Spellbinders Classic Decorative Inserts 6 – this creates quite a nice decorative pierced edge and many of the other Edgeabilities can be used in a similar manner. I am planning to do a tutorial next week showing some examples of what you can achieve with these dies when you use them as a piercing template. I then distressed the edges of the card using Tim Holz Antique Linen Distress Ink. I added some pearls also for effect. I then cut the third largest of Spellbinders Grand Squares and with the die still in place, distressed the edges with Antique Linen. I stamped the sentiment on the side of the square using Versafine Majestic Blue and Onyx Black. I then stamped one of the corset stamps in Onyx Black on to a piece of white cardstock and made two masks from copy paper. I covered the first image and stamped the corset again in Versafine Imperial Purple to the right side of the first image. I masked the second image also and stamped the third corset in Versafine Majestic Blue to the left side of the first image. I cut the images out using the smallest of Spellbinders Grand Decorative Ovals I then stamped the corsets again on a separate piece of cardstock in the same three colours. I cut the side pieces of the corsets off and decoupaged them onto my stamped images. The oval was distressed whilst in the die using Antique Linen. I attached a piece of Silky Crush Champagne Ribbon to the square card, (available from Creative Expressions ). I added a bow made with the same ribbon and a flower made with Spellbinders Spiral Blossoms 3. I have included some close-ups for you. Hope you like the card and would love to hear your comments. I will be posting another card a little later this evening, so if you would like to drop by later you can see it. I would also like to take the opportunity to say that although my blog has been up for quite a few weeks now, I have not completed my profile so many of you will be wondering who I am. I will be telling you more about myself in the next week or so, so please be patient – it is on my ‘to do’ list.
Thanks for dropping by and see you later. Bye for now.
