Time to say goodbye to an old favorite, Vintage Vogue, and hello to a new stamp set. When I saw the frame image from Papaya Collage (available June 1st in the 2012 Catalog), I thought it would pair perfectly with my very first vintage set. And I love the yummy new In Color, Raspberry Ripple. What do you think?
Seems like I have used the flowers from this set at least a million times. (That might be an exaggeration.) They are so striking, especially when cut out and layered like this. The other part of this set that I use over and over is the flourish on the background layer.
The flourish gives just enough sense of texture to a plain layer of card stock to turn something ordinary into something special. I usually use it tone-on-tone, or with a very light Neutral color, to keep it subtle.
If you've put off buying this set for some reason, it's time to take action! In two and a half weeks it will be too late! Order Vintage Vogue and other retiring products from my Online Stampin' Up! Store today!
Goodbye old friend, hello new stamps!
