Elements of Style

I know, it has been a really long time since my last post. Suffice it to say I have been really busy. Only 3 more days of school this year, and then I will be able to stamp full time for awhile.

I just love this stamp set. It's called Elements of Style and can be found in the Summer Mini Catalog. (118611 wood/120045 clear.) If you purchase this stamp set along with several others, you qualify for a free package of brads this month in honor of National Scrap booking Month. You can find out what other stamp sets would qualify you for the brads by going to my Stampin' Up! site.

I also love these colors together. The card stock is regal rose and old olive. I stamped the image on vellum using black craft ink and then embossed with black embossing powder. Also known as the stained glass technique, I then colored the images in regal rose, old olive and more mustard. I used dimensionals behind the flowers to adhere the image to a piece of pretty in pink card stock. The old olive satin ribbon can also be found in the summer mini. (117292). When you use the stained glass technique, if you want brighter colors, you should color on the front side of the vellum. For more muted colors, stamp on the reverse side of the embossed image. The bird was stamped on a piece of whisper white card stock using more mustard ink.

Well, thanks for stopping by. I will try not to take so long to post again, but I think I say that every time. :)

Happy Stamping
