August 2011 Release Day 3: Very Vintage Greetings & Label Layers 3 Die

It's day 3 of our August Release and we have another amazing set and coordinating die to share with you. I am so thrilled to hear how much you are enjoying the sneak peeks of Le Cirque. I could hardly put that set down. But we are switching gears now and going sophisticated and elegant.

Very Vintage Greetings

  • is a 6x8 clear photopolymer stamp set
  • contains 14 stamps; 3 flower images, 9 sentiments, and 2 frames
  • will be available for purchase August 5th for just $19

Coordinating with Very Vintage Greetings is the Label Layers 3 die.

Label Layers 3 Die

  • coordinates with Very Vintage Greetings stamp set
  • measures approx. 3" x 2"
  • will be available for purchase August 5th for just $6

For my first card, I wanted to focus on the intricately illustrated flowers.

What I really like about these flowers is that while you can color them with Copics, they are so detailed with built in shading that they can be left uncolored as well and still look finished. I started my stamping the Mum in brown repeatedly on yellow cardstock.

I then die cut a piece out of the pattern using the Label Layers 2 Die and cutting it into two pieces.

I adhered the split label to a rectangle of Rustic Cream cardstock. To finish this card, I added the "Celebrate today" sentiment to a tag cut with my Cricut and attached it with some twine. I had a really hard time NOT adding something else to this card. I've been practicing the shabby chic look for so long that I almost forgot my "roots" in CAS. I'm so glad I was able to resist.

I am on a yellow and pink kick lately. It may have something to do with Authentique paper to be honest, I just can't get enough of it. ;) Up next, a Victorian feel with a vibrant color palette.

I was pleased to see how beautifully Very Vintage Greetings and C'est La Vie compliment each other. I started by stamping the frame from C'est La Vie onto a piece of cream cardstock and flanked it with the small floral image from Very Vintage Greetings.

For my focal image, I used a Label Layers 3 die cut. I then added the coordinating floral frame and sentiment, both from Very Vintage Greetings. I am head over heals in love with the font in this set. Yum.

The patterned paper pulls it all together perfectly.

There you have Day 3. Check out what the rest of the Design Team has to share today using this set:
