Vintage Cardmaking: Fun with Field Flowers

I got to sit down and play with the new stamp set Field Flowers from Stampin' Up!, and boy did I have fun!


Click here to view 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog from stampin' Up! I have been drooling over the new 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalog for weeks, now, and just love the cover artwork.  I decided to create a vintage card with a similar look. 

I started by stamping the Very Vanilla background with Dot, Dot, Dot and the flourish from Creative Elements in Sahara Sand ink.  Then I added layers of texture, spritzing, and sponging.  I stamped the leaves in Old Olive and the flowers in Calypso Coral, Tangerine Tango, and Soft Suede.  The sentiment was embossed in Old Olive Craft Ink.

Next came a generous application of Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint, using a brayer. 

I couldn't stop there, of course, and experimented with the Tulip Frames Embossing Folder

I have been itching for a chance to use the new Ruffled Ribbon, and thought the Calypso Coral layered with Old Olive 1/8" Taffeta added a lovely touch, as well as the Jewelry Tags and Linen Thread


Field Flowers is a Two-Step stamp set, which means you can layer the images for a great effect.

    Thanks, Lori. It started out as a mistake, but I liked it and added more. You know how that goes. . .

    I like it. Kinda reminds me of one of those old punched tin ceilings… We can always count on Sage for vintage beauties. TFS!
