You can earn the Elementary Elegance stamp set for FREE during Stampin' Up!'s Sale-a-bration promotion. It's one of the 20 items available starting January 24th. For every $50 worth of merchandise you order, you can choose one FREE item from the Sale-a-bration (SAB) Catalog. That makes this a great time to add exciting new stamps and supplies to your collection! Here's a sample I made using the Elementary Elegance set:
What a fun frame, full of swirlies, a crown, bird, butterfly, and even a key! It fits nicely with my vintage supplies, and you can bet I'll be playing with it some more. The sentiment is from the You're a Gem set in the main catalog, and both are embossed with Black Embossing Powder. I love how the Basic Black card stock complements the black embossing and makes the layers stand out.
The Curly Label Punch creates the perfect fit for the center of the frame. You can see that I stamped the label with an image from Fresh Vintage (SAB) in Calypso Coral, but I stamped off first so it would be a subtle background. Then came the fun Organdy Bow and Designer Brad (SAB), with a Trinket Key attached with Linen Thread.
The background is an altered piece of Designer Series Paper from the Everyday Enchantment set (SAB). It started out with a Poppy Parade pattern on the Very Vanilla background, which was way too busy to use behind the focal point. So I got out some Riding Hood Red ink and brayered it to make the pattern more subtle. I added some paper piercing in the corners to finish it off.
