It's the final installment of my stamping party recap (See part one and part two), and this was my card for the shoebox swap. The girls all seemed to like it ... yay!
I really love all the patterns in the Stampin' Up! Tea for Two Designer Series Paper collection, but these two patterns are my very favorite. The coral tea roses are just beautiful! I adore the That's the Ticket stamp set and was really excited to use that "precious baby" stamp.
The second ticket is embellished with a bitty butterfly (new punch!), a tiny scallop circle (Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack), and a rhinestone. Behind the tickets is a little wisp of the large oval lace from the Artisan Embellishments Kit (swoon!). Another new favorite is the Flower Trim - delicate little fabric flowers on a continuous strip of tulle. I played around with coloring them, but decided in the end to just leave them Vanilla.
Coloring the flowers is super easy. The top two flowers (in the photo above) were lightly touched onto a Calypso Coral ink pad. The bottom flower was pressed into the pad, then lightly spritzed with water, causing the color to bleed and spread. Beautiful! You can also use a Stampin' Write Marker to color part or all of the flower as well. And, of course, you can create a dye bath, using a small container with water and a few drops of classic ink from an ink pad refill bottle. (The more drops of ink - the more intense the color will be.)
