Simple Crochet Trim and Antique Brads

A Little Touch of Crochet Trim and Vintage Brads make a 
wonderful finishing touch to the versatile 
"Stippled Blossoms" stamp set, I just Love It!
Don't you think the monochromatic
colors give it a true VINTAGE feel?

Let's look at the background....
When was the last time you split the Top Note die into
a 2 piece color block? I know it's been a while for me.
I love how it works though and how it introduces in 
another color on my card.

A great way to balance color on your card is to follow
the idea of repeating a color 3 times.

               1. Crumb Cake on the bottom of the top note.
               2. Large Stippled Blossom in Crumb Cake.
               3. Small Stippled Blossom in Crumb Cake.

               1. Early Espresso card base.
               2. Early Espresso sentiment.
               3. Dark colored brad.

The Stippled Blossom stamp set has a great 
2 color layering and is considered a 
stamping technique!

Stippled Blossoms Clear-Mount Stamp Set
Two-step stamping is so easy to do--and the results are spectacular! 

1. Just stamp the base image  (the darkest one above)with Crumb Cake ink on Vanilla card stock.
2. Then position ( I like to use a Stamp-a-ma-jig # 101049)and stamp the overlay image in Early Espresso ink. 

It's that simple!
 This ten-piece set lets you make old-fashioned roses--for all of your 
feminine and vintage projects. And coming from a household of all men I can never
get too much Girlie looking stuff.

Thank You to Sue Whitney from my downline team who inspired all her Stamp Club members with this fun, feminine,vintage card. Sue's Club meets in Rocklin, Ca and can be found HERE.
