I'm loving this years Sale a Bration sets!!! It's so funny, every year I see the sets and think "oh they're nice, not sure if they're 'me' though" Then EVERY year I see fantastic samples done with the sets and I fall in love with every, single one of them! It happens every year! You'd think I'd learn! Fresh Vintage is one of my favorites this year but I've had a tendency to use it with the colors in the coordinating DSP. Which is fine, but I wanted to branch out a little and try something new. I LOVE this color combo--LOVE IT!!!!!!! It's one of my all time favorites. Crumb Cake (love that any day!), Pretty in Pink (my favorite pink), and Bravo Burgundy (ummmmm I never use this color). But don't they look fantastic when combined, so pretty!!!!
I love this card. I used my markers to color in the stamp and stamped it over and over on the cardstock. Then for a fun look I crumpled up some scraps of cardstock and separated the cardstock for a faux suede look, and I ripped it for a different look too. Just a tip, Stampin' Up! cardstock is not only the BEST cardstock out there, but it's the only cardstock that you can literally separate like this. It's such a high quality of cardstok and the color goes through and through which is so important when doing a technique like this! The bow is tied with Crumb Cake Seam Binding then I crumpled that too. Finally I got out my color spritzer and spritzed everything! It's a fun card but most of all I love the colors!!!
