Merry & Bright

Hi there folks!  There is still time to get the newly released Technique Junkies October stamps at 25% off.  Use my code TJ10Beth and get 10% off everything else!

I was born in the 60’s.  Is that why I love retro so much?  This fun ornament stamp is called Retro Ornaments Background.  Merry & Bright came from Victorian Greetings, set of 6.

Steps to Making Card

  • Cut turquoise card to size 4″ x 5 1/4″ and copper mat at 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
  • Take a dark colour of ink, such as a deeper turquoise and blend edges, leaving the centre light (original colour of cardstock).  Let dry completely before the next step.
  • Rub embossing buddy generously over the entire cardstock.
  • Heat emboss using gold embossing powder
  • Add a banner with sentiment using the same colour as the mat.  Here it is a copper.
  • Whalaa.  You’re done!

Very pretty! the gold on the turquoise is awesome! I think you may love retro because it’s actually positive and pretty designs that got trapped in way too bright colors, lol. Put the shapes in another light as you have done here and they are lovely. xoxo
