I've had a very busy but fun week of classes. It's been great seeing my stamp room full of chatter and laughter again. And of course it's always lots of fun playing with new products. We're spoilt for choice at the moment, with the Seasonal Catalogue and the Sale-a-Bration items too :o)
This was my other Stamp-a-Stack Design, using "Feeling Sentimental" and "Vintage Versses", two of the Sale-a-Bration sets:
We all need more stamps that can be used for masculine cards, and this set certainly fits the bill! The colours I've used are River Rock, accented with Midnight Muse, Garden Green, Elegant Eggplant and Cherry Cobbler. I've used Soft Suede ink, which is a lovely brown that reminds me of old Sepia photographs, and the Apothecary Accent framelits in Naturals Ivory cardstock, edges sponged with Crumb Cake ink.
On the coloured pieces, I've used the "Clockworks" stamp set in Versamark ink. I pull this one out all the time for backgrounds. I've used the new Edge Distressing tool (love it!) and also crumpled the cardstock to add to the vintage feel.
For my embellishments I used the new Natural Trim. It's new in the Seasonal Catalogue and works really well on masculine cards...it has a hessian look and feel to it. I've also used the Vintage trinkets - cute little brads that look like tiny buttons.
Vintage is not my usual style, but hopefully I've managed to pull it off?
