I saw a beautiful card on the Stampin' Up! demos web page. Shannon West posted a lovely card...simple clean lines like I love. So I did a little CASE'ing, added my own touch and love the result!
I used the Vintage Vogue set again (I know..obsessed) and the greeting from the new 'MUST HAVE' set in the Mini, 'Well Scripted'. It is beautiful and elegant and simple all rolled into one. Love, Easter, Father , Mother, Birthday and Congrats are all included.
Here is a close up (because I love this lens and Macro photography and it's my blog LOL)
the technique here is easy. Stamp and heat emboss the flower in Very Vanilla. Take a dauber and sponge Chocolate chip ink over the image starting in the centre and going out beyond the edge of the flower. Take a tissue and wipe any excess ink off the embossed flower. Now stamp the vine image over lapping the embossed flower. Again take a tissue and wipe off the ink from the embossed area...this makes the vine appear to be behind the flower.
and a little detail on the inside of course. It is one of the things I love about SU's sets..there is always a little element that you can use to decorate the inside of your card and your envelope.
Enjoy! If I find Shannon's public blog I will add a link for you to see her other art.
**EDIT: Found Shannon's public blog. She shares the blog with a group of stampers.
If you are a Stampin' Up! demo you want to make sure you are checking out the awesome art on the new site. As always SU demo's rock the stampin' world and share everything they do! Love this gang of Stampers! LOL
