Stamp Something Old, Something New

Morning All,

It's a new month over at Stamp Something and we've got lots of new things to talk about! We have a new design team made up of some old and new designers, this month is kicking off new challenges and new sponsors, and we've redesigned our site! And so in the name of newness we want to see you create something old, something new....a wedding theme! Anything wedding goes for this challenge and since it is the season for weddings, we thought why not!

This week we are sponsored by the first of many new sponsors to come at Stamp Something, and it's My Grafico! They have a great range of commercial use graphics with many unique designs, and they also have their own online community. Be sure to hop over to Stamp Something and check out the great blog candy prize this week as well as visiting My Grafico to see all they have to offer!

My Grafico kindly donated a digital stamp set for the entire Stamp Something design team to use for our projects this week. Here's the card I made...

I went with the Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue wedding theme. This card using a new image, blue papers, old tulle from a dress, and a borrowed hat pin with pearls from my stash. That last one's a stretch!

I wanted a distressed/vintage feel so I inked up the designer papers with swirls from Baroque Motifs from SU! and then distressed all the edges. The tulle has been sewn to the blue paper with a sewing machine. I also embossed with the Cuttlebug and Swirls folder and sponged on ink. The embellishments on the card are lace ribbon, taffeta ribbon, beads, pearls, and a hat pin.

For the image, I printed it out to the size I wanted. Then colored with an ivory Copic marker. I stitched the image piece to another designer print in blue and once the card was together I added pearls and glitter to the dress. I tried an iridescent Elmer's glue for the dress but when I added the glitter that sort of went away. But I'm happy with the way this turned ou t anyway. The final accent was to add paper roses in blue.

Thanks for stopping by today, enjoy your Friday and have a great weekend. I hope you'll join us at Stamp Something this week. Oh and be sure to also check out the DT samples and show the new girls a little love!

Happy Stamping something old, something new! :)
