Vintage Good Tidings

By | 05/10/2017

Often when we look to purchase a stamp set, we often consider how versatile the stamp set is and how many different ways we can use the one set to create as many variations of a project or projects.  After you have been stamping for a while, having collected a stamp set every so often, there is no reason why you can’t mix and match different stamp sets.  Sometime we re-discover an older set that we’d not used for a while or may be even have forgotten.

My project today uses a number of different stamp sets.  Can you work out how many different stamp sets have been used?   A little bit from one set and a little bit from another.  One of the advantages being that it is unlikely that anyone else and put that particular combination together, although stranger things have happened.

I started with Very Vanilla card stock, stamped the Sheet Music back ground, Timeless Textures around the edge, Good Tidings for the holly, Star of Light for the greeting and Rose Wonder for the boarder around the greeting.

I was aiming for a Victorian Vintage look with a Very Vanilla base and darker colours like Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Garden Green and Crumb Cake.  Not quite sure I achieved it, maybe a little extra sponging around the card front may have helped.  I still like the result.  The gold embossing of the greeting on the front and on the inside, just top it off nicely.

Happy stamping!
