I used the Stampin’ Up! Antique Tags Host Exclusive stamp set to create my card for the Happy Stampers blog hop. We’ve got a color challenge to play along with this week and this is what I created:
Here are the colors that we’re playing along with this week:
I started by stamping the flourish image from the First Sight stamp set (available Jan 5) in VersaMark ink on a panel of Basic Black card stock. I sprinkled the images with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed them.
I wrapped a strand of the Gold 5/8″ Satin Ribbon around the stamped panel and I adhered it with SNAIL, then adhered the panel to a Basic Black card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the image from the Antique Tags stamp set in VersaMark ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock, sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it. I colored the sleeves in the image with my Black Stampin’ Write Marker, then cut the image out with matching Chalk Talk Framelits die and I adhered it with SNAIL to a panel from the Gold Foil Sheets that I’d punched on both ends with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.
I adhered the layered sentiment panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, then tied a bow from Gold Satin 5/8″ Ribbon and adhered it next to the sentiment with a Glue Dot.
I stamped the flourish image from the First Sight stamp set in Basic Black Archival ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock inside the card.

Oh boy Amy, your already starting on New Year cards! I’m in trouble 🙂 I love the elegance of your card and the new stamp set you choose, it lended itself so well with the color challenge! The Antique tags set is the topper, Champagne anyone, lol! I’ll take a few glasses, my youngest has a nasty cough, sneezing, runny nose…It’s been a “fun” 2 days and sleepless nights 😛
I’m trying to sneak in a few Happy New Year cards. 🙂 Bummer on the cold, hope that she’s over it before Christmas…and hope that you don’t get it too!
Thanks Amy, I’m going to be doing the Lysol dance in a little bit, lol!
