Stampin’ Up! “Very Versailles” For The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, today for our hop we have a sketch challenge.  I combined two great products to create my card for you.  I inked up for the very first time the Very Versailles Stamp set and then used the Pocket dies which was the perfect shape for the sketch challenge.

The sketch:

Stampin’ Up! Very Versailles:

The recipe:

Card base: Crumb Cake 5-1/2 x 8-1/2, scored at 4-1/4

  • Stamp your script image in Rococo Rose ink from the Very Versailles Stamp Set
  • Stamp your leave image on top of the script image in Vera Mark Ink
  • Sprinkle  Gold Emboss Power over the stamped image and then heat set the emboss powder with your heat tool
  • Stamp 3 flowers from your Tea Together Stamp set onto White Watercolor paper

  • Die cut the 3 flowers out using your Tea Times dies

Putting the card together:
