Fresh Vintage

I'm on a bent right now to make several different cards with this stamp set from Stampin' Up, called "Fresh Vintage." I don't just love blue, I simply ADORE blue!! I fought the urge to do all four of these in blue. I MADE MYSELF do the first one in greens. Then the second one in green and some pastels. I would have really liked both of them better in blues:)  I'll do some more in the next couple of days.
Certainly Celery from Stampin Up for the card base, hunter green cardstock from Paper Studio. The white squares were stamped with Memento Cottage Ivy and the circle flower was done in Memento Bamboo Leaves. The ribbon is from my stash, and the embossing folder is from Sizzix, it's called Tropical Paisley.
The base cardstock is Wild Wasabi from Stampin' Up. The tan layer is from my stash, probably Paper Studio, and it was embossed with Diamonds from Sizzix. The flower postage was stamped in Memento inks: Bamboo Leaves, LuLu Lavender, and Summer Sky. The ribbon is from my stash.
This faux tile was done with the scoring board, then I stamped the image randomly on the paper with Denim ink from Adironack. The sentiment is "Happiest Birthday Wishes" from Stampin Up, and was stamped in Mediterranean Blue Brilliance ink. The blue cardstocks are Paper Studio.

  4. Beautiful cards Carole ! You've been busy ! I love them all, the last two remind me of Dutch Delfts Blue. The image is wonderful and also looks great in the green. It's hot here too, over 90 with the humidex, strange for this time of year. Enjoy your day, Shirleyx
