Shabby Chic/Vintage- Estabished Elegance

Hi Everyone!

It's been a little while since I last blogged. My best friend for more than 20 years came from NY to visit my family and I here in OH, for a few days. We had such an amazing time! My daughters love her as much as I do. We are so blessed to have her in our life! I miss her very much. I am really looking forward to seeing her again at Christmas time!

Onto my card:

I created this card for the Inspiration Challenge over on Splitcoaststampers.com. 

I absolutely LOVE the new Established Elegance set from SU! It's a beautiful Vintage style set which is RIGHT up my alley! 

I used the small floral stamp in the set to create my handmade dp. I then colored the flowers in with Pink Pirouette and then added a bit of Blushing Bride to give the flowers some depth. I used Certainly Celery and then enhanced it with some Pear Pizzazz. 

Next, I took the flourish stamp in the set and inked it up using Sahara Sand. I then stamped the flourish all around the flowers. Next, I took some Crumb Cake ink to give my paper that old distressed Vintage look. Next, I roughed up all the edges of my paper. I then took some Soft Suede ink and dusted each edge with that. After my dp was complete, I started to play around with it and created the above design! 

I hope you like my Shabby Chic/Vintage -Established Elegance card!

Until next time...

  4. Having read this I believed it was rather enlightening. I appreciate
    you taking the time and effort to put this content together.
    I once again find myself personally spending way too much time both reading and commenting.
    But so what, it was still worthwhile! obat penghilang tato penghapus tatto
