Vintage Timeless Portrait
Hello, Well this is my very first blog and post ever! So you'll have to be patient with me as I learn to navigate my way around the blogging process and build my Home Page and other pages. I couldn't wait to get something on here to show and tell though. A full list of Stampin' Up! products I used will be at the bottom of this post.
I love this set of Papers - 'Timeless Portrait'. For the Cameo girl I simply used my Decorative Label Punch and punched her straight from the paper. In the large circle I have used 2 stamps that have retired however you can replace the sewing stand with the one from the Established Elegance Stamp Set ( I do have this set now, however I didn't when I made this card), and the Flourish from the same set as the sentiment on this card - Style Beautiful.
I stamped the flourish first, then punched it out with the circle punch, and then stamped the sewing stand over that. I punched the same size circle out of Island Indigo, cut it in half and layered it underneath the top and bottom of my stamped circle to give it a frame. Next I stamped the sentiment and punched it out with the extra large oval punch.
I love the flowers on this card! Aren't they so cute! For the small ones, on the oval, I used my Itty Bitty Punches, and for the one on the circle I used my Boho Blossoms Punch. To finish them off, I placed a small pearl in the centre on each.
I placed some Crumb Cake Seam Binding Ribbon over the centre of the main card piece and then adhered that to the Crumb Cake base card. Then I started the layering of the feature pieces. Firstly I adhered the large circle flat onto the card, then using Stampin' Dimensionals, I layered my cameo girl. I wanted the sentiment to sit a little bit higher than the girl soI used 2 Stampin' Dimensionals on top of each other and mounted it that way. That way I was able to have the 3 tiers.
