You Are . . .


Today's cards once again make use of the Just Rite "Antique Autumn Tags One" stamps and matching "Antique Tags One" die set.  I've used the same stamped frame for both, but stamped different sentiments inside them.  That is one of the things I love about these stamps - the frames can be used to frame a variety of sentiments.  These particular sentiments are a part of the set, but I can, and do, use other sentiment stamps with them.

This blue card starts with a piece of striped paper that I've had in my stash for some time.  I don't remember who made it.  I inked the edges and adhered it to my card base.  The next layer up is a piece of white glimmer paper that was embossed in an embossing folder.  I love the texture that adds!  Next layer up is a piece of dark blue glimmer paper cut and embossed with a die from Spellbinder's Resplendent Rectangles. The lighter blue is cut and embossed with a die from their Radiant Rectangles set.  The focal tag itself is framed by another dark blue piece cut and embossed with a die from their Ornate Squares set. The tag itself was stamped in black ink and then shaded around the edges with with blue chalk and popped up on foam tape.




This card brings an unusual color pairing of brown and purple.  It is brought together in the background paper that comes from another 6.5" x 4.5" matstack from DCWV called "Indian Summer".  For the focal, starting with the bottom layer, we have a white layer cut with a die from Spellbinder's Fleur De Lis Squares, then a brown glitter cardstock piece cut and embossed with a die from their Ornate Squares.  The next layer is a purple glimmer paper cut and embossed with a die from their Decorative Labels Eight set.  The stamped label itself is stamped in brown ink and shaded around the edges with purple chalk.  It is then inset into a white piece that was cut and embossed with a die from Spellbinder's Ornate Squares die set before being added with foam tape for dimension.
