Last week I needed to make a birthday card for my aunt’s 60th birthday so I borrowed a brand new stamp set from my stamper friend Lori. It’s called Elements of Style and it’s going to be in Stampin Up! summer mini coming out in May. It is so beautiful! Classic florals, a bird, funky swirl all add up to a beautiful and romantic shabby chic look!
First the birthday card I made 2 because it was so pretty!
-pretty in pink, basic black, whisper white cs
-pretty in pink, basic black, certainly celery, bashful blue, barely banana, almost amethyst ink
-blender pens, pretty in pink satin ribbon (love!), half back pearls, and ticket corner punch
The next card was inspired by a left over bit from the first project and was a “just-because-I-wanted-to” card and is soo deliciously shabby and aged, and textured!
-kraft, very vanilla, almost amethyst, whisper white cs
-pretty in pink, basic black, certainly celery, bashful blue, barely banana, almost amethyst, soft suede ink
-Vintage vogue wheel–one of my new favorite things!
-scallop trim border and scalloped oval punches
-vintage tulle and crochet trim
And then, because I was on a roll and had a strip left over from making my background with my wheel, I grabbed markers and started to play!
-regal rose, crushed curry, bordering blue markers
-tag corner punch
-shimmer paint and sponge daubers
-vintage tulle and pretty in pink satin ribbon
And now I’m off to do some homework!
