Elegant Card - Using Very Vintage - Video Tutorial


I seem to be stuck on the Very Vintage Hostess stamp set at the moment! I absolutely love this floral image! It's easy to watercolour and so beautiful when complete.

Today's card is very simple. I didn't add a sentiment, I think you could use it for so many occasions.


The main colour for this one is Melon Mambo - it's still my favourite Pink :o)

I have a Video tutorial showing you how I created it. This time I used Powder Pink as the main colour. I hope you enjoy .....

Very Vintage - Hostess Stamp Set

 

I'm back with another Very Vintage card today. This stamp set is one of our current Hostess sets. 

These sets can only be purchased using Stampin' Rewards. Stampin' Rewards are earned when you place an order of £150 or more. This can be your own personal order, or it can be an order made up of smaller orders that you've collected from your friends and family. 

You can find all our current Hostess sets towards the back of the catalogue. There is also a chart there showing you how much you can earn in Rewards. You can 'spend' your Rewards on anything in our current catalogues and also for Clearance items.

Hosting a Party is a great way of earning Rewards. If you are interested in holding one and are in the Wiltshire area, please contact me for a chat. 

Back to today's card ..... The background is Very Vanilla card. I stamped the images using Versamark and heat embossed them with Clear powder. I then sponged Sahara Sand ink all over the mat before adding small sections of Blushing Bride, Pool Party and So Saffron ink. 

The image panel was stamped using Early Espresso and then sponged over with Sahara Sand. I then coloured using an Aqua Painter and various ink pads. 

The Basic Black mat behind the image panel was hand cut.


Do you notice anything new on this card? 

The image has been cut out using one of the Stitched Season framelits that will be available to purchase during August. There is a lovely new bundle of products coming including a stamp set and more Watercolour Pencils! I will give you more details of these nearer the time :o)
