You’ve Got Style

November 9, 2018

This You’ve Got Style stamp set was also part of the one day sale, which enabled me to buy it relatively guilt free.  I just love the gorgeous ladies in this set and since most of my customers and I are not so young any more, I thought it would have lots of appeal.  Today’s card also features a little technique that has been shared by many Demonstrators online for stepping up the Buffalo Check Background stamp.  To do this, you stamp the background image as you normally would using whatever colour you wish.  Then you take a Stampin’ Write Marker in the colour of your choice and add some lines into the “whitish” sections of the stamped image.  To create my background, I stamped in Granny Apple Green and then added lines using my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker.   I actually stamped a 10cm x 14.3cm piece of Whisper White and then cut it down to the size I required.  I cut a piece of Basic Black card using one of the Delicate Lace Edgelit Dies and attached it behind the top of the stamped card.  The panel is attached to Whisper White card and then scored and folded Basic Black card.  I stamped the image from the You’ve Got Style stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured the image using Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight and Ivory Stampin’ Blends.  The image is cut using the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  The image panel is attached to a Basic Black scalloped oval cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies and then the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the greeting from the Half Full stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut it out using the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.  The greeting is attached to a Basic Black scalloped oval cut using the same dies and then the card front.  Lastly I added a Basic Red Rhinestone to the each of the earrings.

To decorate the inside of the card, I added another of the greetings from the Half Full stamp set onto Whisper White card.

I love this card, I think this lady makes a great image for Christmas cards and I love the saying from Half Full, I know several people for whom this one is appropriate (maybe including me).  I really would love to know what you think?

Bye for now,

Kris
