A couple of weeks ago, during Sweet Peek Week, I shared a card showing the SugarCut – Botanical Branches from SugarPea Designs. It was a card that came together quickly with the help of these beautiful dies plus a new word die and stencil. I was inspired to use exactly the same layout to create a totally different card and I hope you like this concept.
It started when I first saw the Splash of Color Stamp Set. While my first use of it was bold and clean, I immediately thought that it could be used for vintage style cards too. So that is what I made. I started with brushing Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Ink onto Distress White Heavyweight Card Stock. Next I added some of the new Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide to finish the foundation. I partially inked up the Handwritten Letter Stamp Set with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and stamped it onto the based. Next up, Spash of Color! I chose one of the splatters and added it by partially inking with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo. I liked it but thought it needed just a little more so I added a bit more of the splatter inked with Versamark and embossed with copper embossing powder.
Next, I inked some more of the paper with the same ink combination and used the SugarCut Botanical Branches and the SugarCut Thanks Word to cut my elements. Once I had them cut, I added a bit more ink in places and then touched on some Versamark for more copper embossing. On the vellum shadow for the sentiment I sponged Vintage Photo on the back side to make it not so bright. I placed a few sequins exactly the way I had on my original card to finish.
I hope this inspires you to use your own creations as inspiration to try something new. Vintage is not my normal style but having the basics already designed, it left me room to play outside the box. Thanks so much for stopping in today! Have a sweet day!
