Vintage Vogue thank you card

If you visited my blog yesterday, you'll know that I was VERY excited to be making cards with the Vintage Vogue stamp set. Today I have another card to show you.

The beautiful flowers in this set immediately suggest pinks and blues but I thought I'd branch out into neutrals. Here's what I came up with:

The larger flower was stamped in Basic Black, the smaller one in Basic Grey... Actually let's stop there! Were the naming colours department of Stampin' Up on holiday when these colours turned up? I love the names of SU colours - Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Apricot Appeal (oh dear, hungry again...) and can't imagine why we don't have Beguiling Black or Gracious Grey! Okay, rant over, let's go back to the card: I layered the flowers over a background of Old Olive leaves, adding a little bling. The panel was matted onto Basic Grey card stock and adhered to a Very Vanilla card base.

Stamps: Vintage Vogue, Occasional Greetings
Ink: Basic Black, Basic Grey, Old Olive
Card stock: Very Vanilla, Basic Grey
Other: Rhinestone brads from the Pretties kit

Don't you just love this Vintage Vogue set? What I love about it is that you can use this stamp set on its own to make beautiful and very different cards - just add ink and card stock. I've added brads here but I could easily have just punched out a centre for the flowers (see yesterday's post). The set costs £19.95 for   a set of eight stamps and it's certainly all set to become one of my top favourites! If you'd like to order it - or anything else - just email me and I will be happy to help.

I must dash as time as I have a barbecue to go to this evening and could do with a major scrub up! (Although a make-over with Gok Wan might be better!)
Whatever you're doing this evening, have a lovely time.
See you soon!
