Four Frames and Elements of Style

With all the excitment of the Retiring Stamp Sets and Accesories lists and the upcoming new Stampin' Up! catalog I have neglected the stamp sets that are current and will also be in the new catalog.  Today's sample uses 2 such sets, Four Frames and Elements of Style.

Elements of Style

This card came about because I have been wanting to do some black embossing on black cardstock to create my own DSP (Designer Series Paper).  I think the effect is subtle and elegant.  

Here's what I used:
Stamps: Four Frames, Elements of Style
Ink: VersaMark, Black Stazon, Pink Pirouette, Lucky Limeade, So Saffrom
Paper: Basic Black, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White
Punches: Decorative Label
Big Shot: Perfect Polka Dot TIEF
Extras: Pink Pirouette Taffeta Ribbon, Black embossing powder, Blender Pen, Dazzling Details 

Thank you for stopping by and if you have any questions feel free to email me or leave me a comment.  There's just a few days left before the new catalog goes in to effect so be sure to place your order for  the retiring products you want.
