You can’t see the impressions…. well because it’s ‘subtle’ but in real life, it is VERY nice.
It adds just enough texture to give it some extra ‘subtle’ attention!
Next I took the leaf stamps and using Old Olive, Merry Merlot and Cajun Craze inks, stamped then cut them out with the Thinlits.
Then for just a bit of pizzazz, I took Old Olive ribbon and Linen Thread to make a small bow. This was attached with a Glue Dot.
In the opposite corner I just had to add a Gold Faceted gem.
The message was layered onto a piece of Merry Merlot and adhered with Dimensionals. AND of COURSE I just had to use a bit of Wink of Stella –here and there for interest. To me, Wink of Stella is a must fro any project–it adds a sparkle of interest!

I LOVE this stamp set – Half Full -designed by Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Linda Bauwin!
When a Demonstrator surpasses $1,000,000 in sales she/he gets to DESIGN their own set!
How cool is that!!!!!
And I love the cards we just made at my class on Saturday!
For this one, we used a base of Crumb Cake card stock. Then a layer of Very Vanilla and topped off with another layer of Bundle of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper and THEN a Gold Foil Snowflake with fresh Fig and Gold Metallic Edge ribbons!
A little stamping, cutting and Wink of Stella and voila!
What do you think?
Of course this was copied/tweaked from a card in Stampin' Up!
Check this one out and then come back this Wednesday to see the second card we made!
