Very Vintage Greetings

Very Vintage Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!

Vintage images meet modern colors to create a bold card with delicate features for this week’s Global Design Project #GDP145; a Colour Challenge. This week we are playing with a great collection of colors: Grapefruit Grove, Fresh Fig and Mint Macaron.

When I saw this week’s colors, I instantly thought to use a floral stamp set. Purple flowers and green stems? Yes! So I chose a new floral set: Very Vintage. When looking at the set however, I found so many beautiful textures. I started experimenting and quickly thought that something different had to come out of this set; which leads me to today’s card.

Global Design Project Colour Challenge #GDP145: Grapefruit Grove, Fresh Fig and Mint Macaron.

I started by stamping the flowers and bee in Fresh Fig over a scrap of Whisper White cardstock. These images are so detailed I knew they could stand on their own and if I colored them too much, I’d lose the lovely old-fashioned lines of the drawings. Instead, I simply added a touch of Mint Macaron in the background of the flowers.

Using a Blender Pen, I applied a light touch of color between the flowers and stems. I think it gives the image so much depth and the florals seem to pop.

To add texture, but not distract from the focal, the rest of the stamping in tone-on-tone. Grapefruit Grove doilies and a garland of Mint Macaron are stamped over the same color cardstocks. A little layering is all that was needed to finish the card.

    This card couldn’t be more gorgeous, Shawn! I love the texture you’ve created on your Grapefruit Grove panel, but it’s the added Mint Macaron behind the purple flowers that’s the perfect touch. LOVE!
