Antique Awesomeness!!!

Rustic Elegance,

Collage stamping, antique, rustic, and lots of fun would define these cards! This is not my typical style but I did have lots of fun creating them! I had all intentions to do a rustic with gold look but after creating it, I thought I would do another option with the Paper Doily. I like them both a lot but I do think I like the Paper Doily better! Let me know in the comments below which one is your favorite!!!

Golden Doily,

I started with a Rose Red card base and then layered on a piece of Tip Top Taupe measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″ with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I took a piece of Very Vanilla (3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″) and stamped the dots image from the Timeless Texture Stamp Set in Tip Top Taupe. Yes, I stamped that image about 15 times to cover the background and I did get excited after the last stamped image after I realized I did it without messing up!! 🙂 I stamped the floral image in Rose Red and the little dots in Blushing Bride. If you look real close you can see those light pink dots. I added the Gold Doily to the right side and trimmed off a little bit of it. I took a strip of Very Vanilla and created the banner tips with the Banner Triple Punch. I stamped the greeting in Rose Red from the Rose Wonder Stamp Set. I brushed the edges with a Rose Red Sponge Dauber to make the greeting pop a little more. I added the greeting with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then added this to my card base!

Rustic Doily Thank You,

I started with the same card base for this one. I stamped the floral image from Timeless Textures Stamp Set all over in different directions with Rose Red ink. I stamped the cheese cloth image in Tip Top Taupe. For the little dots, I stamped those in Tip Top Taupe but I stamped about 3 times before going back to the ink. This gave a variation of color. I added a half of a Tea Lace Doily (old style) but you can use the New Delicate White Doilies. I created the same type of banner greeting as I did above but I added some of the Tip Top Taupe Lace Trim (retired) to the bottom of the banner greeting. I love that little extra texture and decoration on the greeting! To finish off the card, I added some Pearls in groups of 3 using different sizes. When I finished this card, I squealed with delight. It’s just so fabulous!!

Let me know in the comments below which one you prefer!

Happy Stampin’
