Wild West with Ruffles

My great friend and stamping buddy, Jennifer, says she expects the smell of leather when she sees this card.  It does remind me of tooled leather, hence the name:  Wild West with Ruffles.

Wild West with Ruffles

I had a great time making this card, playing with the oval Designer Frame and Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folders from Stampin' Up! I made the ruffle from First Edition Designer Series Paper which I ran through the crimper a couple of times before pleating it and adhering it to the back of the Blushing Bride piece.


I used the Distressed Wallpaper background technique I've been experimenting with lately.  This one was stamped with the Parlor Prints background stamp in Crumb Cake ink, then sponged, spritzed, and brayered with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint.  


The ribbon is the wonderful new Very Vanilla Stitched Velvet from the Holiday Mini–available in only 2 more days when the Mini goes live.  It is layered on a piece of Early Espresso 5/8" Satin–it is retired now, I'm sad to say,since this is one of my very favorite colors.  I'll just have to start using Chocolate Chip in its place.  I added an Early Espresso Designer Button with a bit of Linen Thread.Designer Frames Embossing Folders from Stampin' Up!

I am working on a video demonstrating some tips for using the Designer Frames Embossing Folder, and hope to have it for you by the end of the week.  Let me know if you would like to see it.  Tomorrow I want to show you another "tooled leather" card, Wild West with Bow.

If you haven't added the Designer Frames Embossing Folders to your stamping supplies, you are definitely going to want it by the time I finish demonstrating them to you! CLICK HERE to order from my online Stampin' Up! Store.

Now go get your fingers inky!

    I’ve wondered about the extra impression on a larger cardstock piece so thanks for solving the problem for me. Darling cards!
