Easter Blossoms is one of my favorite sets from the Occasions Mini Stampin' Up! Catalog. So it was only natural when faced with this week's Pals Paper Arts Challenge: Fashion Inspiration---Spring/Easter, that it was my "go-to" set. I took my inspiration from the flowers and the texture of the hat. Enjoy my "Vintage Easter Blossoms" card!
The Stampin' Schach Stamping Tips:
- Texture! What better way to replicate the texture of this adorable Easter bonnet than with Stampin' Up!'s Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder? I zipped a piece of Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper through the Big Shot, which left a wonderfully worn vintage appearance!
- Make it pop! The Silhouette image was inked with Early Espresso and stamped onto Very Vanilla card stock. After snipping it out, the edges were distressed with Early Espresso and it was "popped" up on Stampin' Dimensionals.
- Make it your own! Flowers snipped from the Designer Paper form a bouquet for our little lady and fill her basket.
- Vintage touches! Basic Pearls outline the oval mat, giving the illusion of a vintage cameo brooch. They also accent one of my favorite Stampin' Up! punches, the Scallop Trim Border Punch. Rose Red Seam Binding is easily scrunched simply by pulling a thread. And what better vintage touch than a sprinkle of kisses from the Color Spritzer Tool?
