Bliss and Always Elegant

Hello there, crafting friends... My friend Elysa and I had a play date last week and we pottered around and made these.

Rich Razzleberry card base, paired with Bashful Blue polka dot paper from the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack, a piece of vintage type paper from the First Edition Specialty DSP, and a piece of Pumpkin Pie scrap.

Then I had stamped this beautiful swirl image from the Always Elegant stamp set in Early Espresso right on top of the patterned paper. Then, I took my Sponge Dauber and subtly and gently rubbed Pumpkin Pie ink on the swirls. I think it gives a lovely look about it.

Matching Pumpkin Pie sentiment with a rhinestone. Rich Razzleberry ribbon. Then, I had to add that Daffodil Delight button from the Designer Big Buttons Sew Suite pack next to the swirl to bring the eye to that part of the detail.

We both proclaimed that we love it :) We both love the vintage look :)

Next is a quick card using the cheerful patterned paper from the Ice Cream Parlor DSP which is available currently as a Sale a Bration gift. I added a doily, vintage flowers made from the Fun Flowers die, a Melon Mambo big button and a Daffofil Delight 1/4" grosgrain ribbon.

That Pumpkin Pie stamped butterfly is from the Bliss stamp set. I love LOVE love that set!! It makes everything beautiful :) A pearl and a Stampin' Dimensional finished it off.

Then another quick card using the ruffled ribbon technique I saw in Maureen Merritt's blog here.
Here is a close up detail of the ruffled ribbon. I find that I love pairing subtle colors with bright colors. Just makes me happy to see them together.

Thank you for visiting today.

Happy stamping,
