It's Day Three of the Inspired By Stamping Sneak Peeks, and today the Design Team is showcasing two stamp sets: Everyday Tabs and Vintage Banners, which will be available in the IBS store on July 10.
I chose to use the set Flowers Bloom for my image and applied the chalkboard technique as I've been hearing all about it for the past few months but had yet to try it myself. I LOVE IT. It's quick, easy but has such a nice effect when used on black cardstock. I outlined around the edge with a white gel pen to give the image a little more definition. I also heat embossed the edge of the striped base layer with silver embossing powder for a bit of added bling.
Because all those rhinestones obviously weren't going to be enough.
There are various ways of getting a white image, and I chose to heat emboss it with white embossing powder.
For both the banner and the tab I used the newly-released stamp set Happy Occasions Sentiments. They fit PERFECTLY. The tab and banner were both cut with my Silhouette Cameo. Joanna offers cut files FREE with many of her stamp sets. Talk about making life just a teensy bit easier.
The black crochet lace trim and rhinestones are the only embellishments since I didn't feel the rose really required a whole lot of doodads. This way I can almost give this card to a guy if the occasion should arise. I'll have to think on it.
Thank you so much for joining me, and make sure you pop by the rest of the Design Team to see how they've used these sets, and then stay tuned for the last sneak peek tomorrow, and then the Big Reveal on the 10th!
