I’m sad that my new stamps haven’t gotten here yet—mine are on back order! So I found this on my friend Sharon’s blog and thought, she won’t mind if I share her beautiful designs.
When I look at the stamp set “Friends Never Fade”… I think wow, what insight, how true! This stamp from the set.. it’s kind of like a pineapple, dutch welcome sign, and traditional stencil all rolled into one!
This NEW ribbon is featured in the 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog.. this time in Early Espresso and Marina Mist.
The old olive ribbon from the Theatre ribbon essentials pack was added behind the new Marina Mist 1/8” ribbon… Vintage wallpaper embossed marina mist card stock really stands out here.. I love how deeply embossed the image is. The Marina Mist cardstock is paired with bashful blue cardstock, and she’s added a punchy flower with lots of layers after stamping regular computer (or office copy paper) with the a to z stamp set… and of course a flat backed pearl from the pretties kit. What do you think?
Want to see another sample using just ONE of the stamps from the Friends Never Fade Stamp and More of that yummy vintage wallpaper embossing folder!! AND… this time she paired Marina Mist with Early Espresso and Whisper White Card Stock, but turned the embosssed image upside down.. fun, isn’t it?. Still the same pineapple image (or is that an artichoke?) from the Friends Never Fade stamp set… and more narrow 1/8” ribbon… All available in the New Idea Book & Catalog..
