Very Versailles

Very Versailles is a stamp set that is in the Stampin’ Up!® 2019/2020 Annual Catalog.  Honestly, it is not a stamp set I would normally purchase because it is very vintage and we all know how badly I do vintage.  Buffy always inspires me to try to make them and they usually end up in the garbage can before I am finished.  Some of them actually made me laugh because they were two bad.  In any case, this stamp set kept catching my eye.  I love the branch and the sentiments are very nice with a very elegant font.

The Very Versailles stamp set makes it easy to create a CAS (clean and simple) vintage card.  The colors I used are Smoky Slate, Old Olive and Whisper White.  I first inked the words in Smoky Slate ink, stamped it off onto a piece of scrap paper and then onto my Whisper White cardstock.  I wanted it to be lighter since it was in the background.  Stamping off is a great technique to lighten up darker inks.  Then I inked the leaves in Old Olive ink and stamped it over the words.  I stamped the sentiment in Old Olive ink too and punched it out using the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch.  I adhered that to a circle I had punched out using the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch.  They layer together perfectly.

  1. This is GORGEOUS, Susan! You don’t need to do vintage, because your CAS cards are over the top beautiful. And the ONLY reason you don’t do vintage is because crumpling, ripping, and sponging gives you hives. (You’re itching right now, aren’t you?)
