Throwback Thursday with My Creative Time!!

Welcome back! So glad you're here:).  Today we're stepping back in time and using some older products from My Creative Time.

I chose to use the Springtime in Paris stamp and die set for my card today. This set is just beautiful. I combined it with the emboss resist technique which is one of my faves!

I started by stamping the large flourish image repeatedly onto a white card panel using Versamark ink.  I heat embossed using clear embossing powder.  I chose Worn Lipstick and Tattered Rose Distress Oxide Inks for the blending as these take no effort at all to blend.

I sprayed and flicked some water onto the panel to create that awesome bleached effect. NOTE: this is not watercolour paper. The reaction is much quicker on regular cardstock and creates a mottled effect..which I like.

I set that aside to dry and stamped the Eiffel Tower Image, also using Versamark and heat embossed it with Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder.  I repeated this twice to get a nice thick coat of embossing!

I used the largest die from the XOXO Border Dies (one of my favourite sets), and adhered that onto a card base of the same size which is approximately 3.75 X just under 5....I'm terrible with measurements :(

To break the background up a little bit, I stamped the sentiment on a small strip of white cardstock using the Liquid Platinum embossing powder.  I foam mounted the Eiffel tower to give a bit of dimension.

For a bit of sparkle, I added a few Sparkling Clear Sequins.

All in all, a very feminine card.  I should mention that this stamp and die set is ON SALE NOW for an incredible price :)

Thank you so much for stopping by today!!

Until next time...stay crafty!
