Card Swaps

I recently took part in a card swap with a group of ladies who are all Australian Stampin’ Up! demonstrators, and I thought it was time I shared what I had made for them.
I have used the Attic Boutique DSP and Rue Des Fleurs stamp set. To make the dress, I have stamped the bodice part straight onto the Very Vanilla Top Note and heat embossed then coloured it.  I have then cut the V part using a craft knife.  I have then stamped and embossed the Umbrella from this stamp set onto a different piece of card stock, cut it out without the handle and watches which come off the bottom, and then popped it under the V of the bodice, creating a dress.  The dress was heat embossed using Soft Suede and Versamark ink with clear embossing powder, and has been coloured using a blender pen and very light shadings of Poppy Parade ink, with just a touch of Daffodil Delight and Pool Party on the flowers at the top of the bodice.
Doesn’t it make you just want to travel back 100 years so that you wear one just like it?
Happy stamping.

  1. what a beautiful creation. Now I will have to borrow this set from my friend to have a go. Not going to buy it as it didnt make it to the next Catalogue. Thanks for sharing your talent.


  2. Hello Chris
    Please let me introduce myself, I am Susan; a Dt for OCC, and where I viewed your card. I agree with your statement about going back 100years to wear such a dress, I would need to go back that long to fit into it!!!!!
    Your palette is soft and sweet, your Bg with the torn edges adds much interest;it is lovely paper too. The lace is surreptitiously lurking in the Bg, which is creating texture, and lastly your Bow, is wonderful, the card has great form, and perfect for what your sentiment depicts.
    Good Luck in the Dt call.
