Friday Mashup #70

Hi there! It's been a busy week but here we are with another challenge at the Friday Mashup. This week our talented designer Erica hosts the challenge. It is a fun challenge that you won't want to miss, so get ready to create a vintage card or a card with a pin or mash it up and create a vintage card with a pin.

I got inspired by the new products in our Holiday Catalog, which is available now (if you want to see it, you can click on the image in the left sidebar). So I used the new Stampin' UP! Early Espresso Core'dinations Card Stock (127848), the Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (127819), and the Stampin' Sanding System (129367) to create the background. It is so much fun to emboss the cardstock and then rub the sanding block all over the embossing. I love to create this kind of distressing, especially for a vintage card. Then I stamped the solid big flower from Stippled Blossoms (W 126745, C 126747) in Summer Starfruit ink (126991) and then the coordinating flower in Cajun Craze in (126965) on Very Vanilla cardstock. I did the same with the leaves using Lucky Limeade (126984) and Gumball Green (126861).

I am fascinated by the effect that Stippled Blossoms stamps give to your card, because you have to work with two colors, which give a sense of depth. For the edge on the left side in Cherry Cobbler, I used the new Finishing Touches Edgelits (127010). The sentiment is from Loving Thoughts (W 125843, C 125845).
