Global Design Project #GDP084 Case the Designer Michelle Last

Retiring! Retiring! Retiring!
Penned and Painted

One of my favorite Floral Stamp Sets soon to RETIRE!

While I used a few different Stamp Sets on this card, the Penned and Painted Stamp Set really steals the show!

The background is from a retiring stamp set too.  I would love to combine the same shape with the new Eastern Palace Suite on a new card design. The gorgeous shape is from the So in Love Stamp set.  On the above card, the shape was stamped in VersaMark and heat embossed in Gold seven times on e 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 piece of Whisper White Cardstock.  

The sentiment was also embossed in gold and came from the Blooms & Wishes, which will part of the New 2017-2018 Catalog! Hip! Hip! Hooray!

A Gold Foil Sheet created the gold layered frames with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. 

A few outlined elements from the Penned and Painted Stamp Set was embossed in gold on Watercolor Paper and watercolored with an Aqua Painter using Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, and Pear Pizzazz then fussy cut. Unfortunately, the true colors of the card were not picked up in the photos.

Adding a little more interest and dimension, Glossy Accents was dropped in the center of the soft and delicate blossoms.

I hope you are inspired to create something new with the fantastic Stamp Sets that are due to retire!
