Vintage Razzleberry

Remember the Color Renovation announcement? I'm so excited about the Color Renovation, partially because we have several In Colors returning! One of these colors is Rich Razzleberry--one of my all-time favorite In Colors. Of course I do love purple, so it's not too surprising. :-) I created this card using the stamp set Vintage Vogue from the Occasions Mini Catalog.

For the background paper, I started by using my Big Shot and my Lattice Die to cut a lattice out of scrap paper. I layered the lattice over my Very Vanilla card stock and sponged. I lifted the lattice off, and then repeatedly stamped the vine image from the stamp set. Next I lightly sponged over the top of everything. After I did all of my stamping and sponging (with Rich Razzleberry), I cut the card stock into 4 pieces and distressed all the edges with my cutter kit.

For the sentiment panel I stamped all the flowers and leaves and then cut them out--not the type of detail work I usually do, but I occasionally make an exception. :-) The centers of the flowers have Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds glitter, and then the flowers are popped up with dimensionals.

Stamps: Vintage Vogue
Ink: Rich Razzleberry (and marker), Old Olive, Summer Sun marker
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Stampin Up Lattice Die, Big Shot, cutter kit, sponge, dimensionals
