Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Winter Wonder


It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

We have a new sponsor, Altenew, for this challenge!  A randomly selected participant will receive a stamp set of choice from the Altenew shop, while the LEAD will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!



If I could say I have a stamp crush right now, it would be the Vintage Roses set from Altenew.  Oh my.....this set is BRILLIANT!  For a multi-step stamp lover like me, this set is a DREAM!  

Going with the colors of the inspiration photo, I stamped many roses and leaves and fussy cut them out.  You don't need lots of ink colors to make this set work.  If you use the stamping off method, then you can achieve the softer versions of a dark ink!  Perfect for this type of stamp set!

For my card, I used Vintage Cream (PTI) for the solid base of the rose, Provincial Gray (Fresh Ink) for the second step, and Delicata Silver for the last detail stamp.  I love the muted look to the roses!!!  My rose panel was layered over a piece of silver foil cardstock and the edges of the base were scored to frame in my focal point.  A few Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh were added to finish off the elegance!
