First Sample of the New Year - Vintage Vogue

Here's the sample that was promised! The first inking of this new set:) I sure hope you like it!! I needed to make a bunch of thank you cards for and just love to come up with quick and easy no-layer cards. This card used a little sponging of an oval cut out frame from our retired Coluzzle system. It looks like the Ovals Die for the Big Shot would get about the same sized frame. Anywho, you want to center an oval frame on the front of your Whisper White card base (1/2 of an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock, then folded in 1/2). Then take Cameo Coral ink on a sponge and dab it generously within the frame, keeping it darker around the edges. Next, I took my viney stamp and inked it with Always Artichoke. I loved getting it to hug the edges of the oval without having to use my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig (stamp positioner). These clear block stamps are soooooooo great! I then stamped the large flower onto a scrap of Whisper White c/s using Crushed Curry ink and cut it out with my paper snips. I put a dimensional under the center and placed it on the card where I wanted it, without removing the backing. I wanted the little flowers to peek out from under the larger one so I stamped them using Cameo Coral ink. Then I added the half back pearls from the Pretties Kit, adhered my larger flower and voila! Using my SAMJ, I lined up my greeting from the Thank You Kindly Stamp Set, inking it with Cameo Coral. On the inside, I used the frame edge on top and bottom using Always Artichoke ink. I just can't stand not having art on the inside of my cards:) Hope you enjoyed!

Inky Hugs,
