The Gina K team and guests are hopping tonight with "Elegant Verses", thank for joining us!
I finally got around to making the card I'd been thinking about since I first saw the "Elegant Post" set: when Nina came out with this lamp verse in "Elegant Verses" this month, I couldn't put it off any longer LOL! I stamped the post on Vellum CS and then flipped the paper over and stamped it again to create the two sides of the chandelier. I added the pair of birds right side up and upside down to make it a little more ornamental and then added all the self adhesive rhinestones and some little crystal stickers from Stampendous I had. The tiny rectangle and tear drop shapes on the strip were perfect to make the lit candles! I don't have ay chandelier stamps but they've been a very poular trend for awhile now, so I was really pleased with how this worked out! Verse is framed when a die cut Fancy Tag, CS is Pure Luxury White and Black Onyx. The Textile Cuttlebug folder pattern really does look like chandeliers, I embossed it into the card base and the vellum strip under the focal point. It's a beautiful folder for vintage cards.
For even more samples of the Elegant Verses stamp set, please visit the Illustrator of the set, Nina Brackett's blog. Nina will be offering her new stamp set as blog candy tonight too - so we hope you'll take the time to comment on her blog for your chance to win this beautiful stamp set!
