feeling sentimental ferris wheel stamp

Feeling Sentimental Ferris Wheel Stamp

feeling sentimental ferris wheel stamp

The stamp images in the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Feeling Sentimental set are to die for!  I love the intricate, antique line drawings of a ferris wheel, phone booth and an old-time bicycle.  On this card, I decided to go light on dark with a couple of neutrals and Pool Party as my main color.  The latest Spring catalog and the Sale-a-bration products feature a lot of accessories for Pool Party, which I love.

I started with a Natural White cardstock.  Natural White is a little heavier than Whisper White and has a very slight speckled or grainy look to it.  It seemed perfect for a crisp, vintage look.   I stamped the ferris wheel in Versamark on Early Espresso cardstock, then embossed it with Pool Party embossing powder.  ‘Celebrate’ is embossed with Pool Party also.

And the Pool Party ribbon from the SAB Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button Pack is perfect.  This ribbon is wonderful.  It ties so easily and is not bulky on your projects.  You can get this ribbon with two other shades plus three colors of buttons in the pack.
