Oh So Elegant (SSC225)


Well it’s week two in my Stamping 411 Guest Designer month – super excited about this challenge! This sketch is awesome and there are so many options with it!


I decided to go with a more vintage feel on this one so I used my “go to” stamp set, Established Elegance. This set is FANTASTIC! The base of this card is Pear Pizzazz and it’s layered with Early Espresso and then Crumb Cake. The Crumb Cake layer is wheeled with the Very Vintage wheel and roughed up.


I added two panels of Early Espresso and layered the with sponged First Edition Designer paper. I then started my central panel with Early Espresso/Pear Pizzazz and then Very Vanilla.


I stamped the mannequin from Established Elegance in Crumb Cake and then the words over in Early Espresso.


I stamped, coloured and cut out the small floral image and adhered with dimensionals and added a couple of pearls. For the circular piece, I used the image from Established Elegance and just layered them and centered with flowers from the Boho Blossoms punch and the Bitty Punch Pack.


Lastly, I added some ruffled and roughed up Crumb Cake seam binding.


I can’t wait to see what you all come up with so please head on over to Stamping 411 and play along!
