Elementary Elegance Stamp Set's 8th Stamp
Live in the Sunshine

Fresh Vintage Postage

Can you believe this was the first time I inked up the postage stamp image from the Fresh Vintage stamp set?! I remember when I first saw the set thinking how much fun it was going to be layering and punching out that image.   Anyway, I made 2 cards using the same layout in different colors.  I am going to share the other color combination on my Facebook page.

Here's what I used to make this card.

Stamps: Fresh Vintage, Heard from the Heart
Ink: Black Stazon
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Gray, Black, Brights Patterns DSP
Big Shot: Framed Tulip TIEF, Perfect Polka Dot TIEF, Beautiful Wings Embosslit
Punches: Postage Stamp , 1 " Square punch ( this is a carryover item from the Holiday mini catalog 124094.  I know because I checked to make sure)
Extras: Red Satin Ribbon, Basic Rhinestones

Here's a quick recap on how to get both the polka dots and the tulip frame texture on the same project.  First run your paper in the Perfect Polka Dot TIEF  through the Big Shot on Tab 1.  Next put the paper in the Framed Tulip TIEF and run it through the Big Shot on No Tab.  The dots will smash down some but they are still visible.  It really is a fun look.  Give it a try and let me know how it works for you!  Go check out my Facebook page for another take on this card and let me know which one you like better.
