This card is for today's SCS Feature Stamper Challenge(FS149)! Fabulous gallery Pam! WOW!!! I chose this card to case.

I am using a new release from ODBD called His Gift! I chose to keep the basic layout the same and on the one card I tried to use the same hues of colors, but went with a more vintage feel.

If you know anything about my style of cardmaking, you will know that the more vintage feel card is my favorite. For the vintage feel, I sponged colored my main image using ODBD ink pads in bordeaux, sunflower, and olive. The bordeaux matches the rich razzleberry cardstock beautifully. I used it to stamp my sentiment just so you could see the ink alone as well. I also added some Ranger inks in antique linen and vintage photo. For the border punch detailing, I used a EK Success border punch and cut some of it off so the edge is shorter. Just another way to get more punch from your punches. Thought I would share.

For the black and cream card, which I do not have pictured separately, I used Momento tuxedo black ink, black satin ribbon, button, silver cording, and silver pearls. While the vintage is my favorite, you can never go wrong with a black and cream card. I used a MS border punch at the bottom. I just wanted to show you two completely different looks with the same set, same sketch, and same embellishments just different colors.

  1. Beautiful, Betty I love how you colored one and not the other. Very creative and beautiful cards.

  2. Aren't you smart with trimming your border punches - great idea! Going to have to try that some time! Lovely poinsettias! The coloured one is so soft and the B & W one is a lovely contrast. Great set of cards.
