Vintage Goodness - Stampin' Up! P.S. You're the Best

  You can't get any more vintage than a typewriter and tin tile.  We paired up a new annual catalog stamp set with a fantastic new embossing folder and metallic paper from the holiday catalog to make a lovely vintage all purpose card at my last class.

  If you're ever stuck on picking out colors to get started with a card look to the catalogs and the Designer Series Paper.  The pros at Stampin' Up! have already designed and paired up lovely  combinations in the DSP and they are a great source of inspiration for colors.  For this card I used a group of colors from the Country Lane DSP in the Holiday catalog;  Mint Macaron, Blackberry Bliss and Crushed Curry.

  The card base is Mint Macaron with the little flower stamp from P.S. You're the Best stamped on one half in Mint Macaron ink.

  On the other side of the card front we used the new Galvanized Metalic paper and the new Tin Tile embossing folder which is my absolute favorite at the moment!  Just look at that detailed texture!! I'm on my 4th pack of this paper!  Don't judge me!  One edge of the embossed panel has a narrow strip of Blackberry Bliss cardstock adhered to the back to pull together the colors.

  The typewriter is stamped in Momento black with the splatter stamped in Crushed Curry.  The flower accent and sentiment are stamped on the piece of paper.  Using the regular Stampin' Write markers we colored in parts of the typewriter and flowers using the 3 colors.  After the typewriter was finished it is fussy cut and then popped up on dimensionals.

  The final detail is a little faceted dot in the center of the large flower.  The colors in the faceted dot pack coordinate well with the card colors since it contains Blackberry Bliss and Mint Macaron as 2 of the colors.

  This is a great design to make a few of and leave off the sentiment until you need to send the card.  I think it could cover a lot of occasions.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
