Crafty Secrets - New Releases - Celebrate Life Card

Hello blogging friends! OMGosh I can't believe I will be leaving in just a couple of days for CHA!! The time is just flying by--so many things to do and so little time--LOL!! All of the companies are coming out with their new products and the sneak peeks are popping up all over blog land!! Speaking of sneak peeks you will have to check out the Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage Blog. This past week Sandy Redburn, owner of Crafty Secrets has been showing the New Releases for Crafty Secrets!! Today, I have a card to share with you using three of the New Release Stamp Sets--Antique Trims, Lacey Patterns and Vintage Silhouettes.All of these stamp sets are Fantastic!! Antique Trims is a large stamp set and includes eight (8) antique style lace trims and borders. Lacey Patterns is a medium stamp set and includes five (5) block style lacey stamps and eight (8) little lacey elements. Vintage Silhouettes is a small stamp set and includes eleven (11) images and four (4) sentiments. I think Vintage Silhouettes is going to be a favorite of mine! I started by stamping the two borders from Antique Trims. Then I added a little color with a Copic marker, stamped the sentiment from Vintage Silhouettes added Baby Turquoise Rhinestones from Want2Scrap™ and added some glitter.Here is a close up so you can see the stamped images and sparkling rhinestones and glitter.

For the top half of the card I stamped one of the Lacey Patterns images with Antique Linen ink. It is very light in the background (see close up picture below). Then I stamped the images and sentiment with Tuxedo Black ink. I added a little color using Copic Markers and then for a little sparkle I added Baby Turquoise Rhinestones from Want2Scrap™ and diamond glitter.Here is a close up so you can see the Lacey Patterns background.For the bow I used hand tinted seam binding and added a couple of trinket pins and a paper rose.
