Only two more weeks until the end of the current catalog and we’ll be saying goodbyeto some terrific stamp sets. For the next few days, I’ll be posting some oldies but goodies.
Recently, I showed you this card I created with the Baroque Motifs Stamp Set. You can see the details here.
This is a card I created for a color challenge a few years ago. You can’t tell from this picture but the heart is embossed with iridescent ice emboss powder. It’s clear with a perfect shimmer, glitter affect.
And this last card was designed by my aunt for a card swap we did during a family reunion five years ago. The scallop circle punch made this card super easy to make.
I was going for Audrey Hepburn, but it might be more Eliza Doolittle! A reference to that wonderful musical classic My Fair Lady, of course! What do you think? Either way, it’s a fun card for a friend. I wanted to create a card with simple, clean lines to highlight the hat.
This close up shows off the silver glimmer paper flower. The ruffle is added using the scallop oval punch. And a hint of a line to define the top of the hat was traced with the oval punch and the Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write marker.

Stay tune tomorrow for a how-to-make-a-punch-hat video!
Vintage Vogue (retiring) is the perfect stamp set for clean and simple chic. The color scheme is a hint of pink in Blushing Bride (retiring) and the always chic Basic Black.
The background was created by embossing white vellum card stock with the beautiful Finial Press Embossing Folder (retiring). The embossed vellum was then mounted on Blushing Bride card stock. The subtle pink behind the vellum shows off the elegant design of the embossed vellum.
The Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine is the star of the show on this card creating the elegant impressed background and the lovely black tag to frame the oval ‘friends’.
A simple little flower from Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack with a tiny pearl adds just the right touch.
