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.
