 I cannot believe that the Ornate Style Stamp Set is reduced to just £8 as part of the Last Chance Sale!!

This is such a versatile stamp set that creates beautiful background images and is also super fun to colour.  

For today's post, I have used it to create two similar style cards with some of the 2019-21 In-Colours that are soon retiring also!

I created both of these cards during a recent Facebook Live demonstration which you can watch back HERE.  

For the first card, I have used Purple Posy Cardstock for my card base, and added a smaller layer that I have heat-embossed the main image onto with White Stampin' Emboss Powder.  I love this soft look and it is a perfect match for the soft purple colour.  I am really going to miss this in-colour when it leaves us in a few weeks!

For my added detail to this card, I have used the Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set (also retiring and reduced to £16.80 in the Last Chance Sale!)  To keep with the embossing theme, I have used the same White Stampin' Emboss Powder but onto Basic Black Cardstock.  I have trimmed it into a single banner and attached with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

The smaller flower is another image from the Ornate Style Stamp Set and this time I have stamped it onto Basic White Cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and coloured with Purple Posy and Mint Macaron Stampin' Blends pens.  

To finish, I have added a bow tied from Linen Thread and some Frosted and Clear Epoxy Droplets

I really like the soft colour palette of this card mixed with the monochrome!

For the second card, I have used Seaside Spray as my base colour; this time stamping onto the top layer of card with the coordinating Seaside Spray Classic Stampin' PadThis is a favourite technique of mine and you would think that using the same colour ink wouldn't look like this but it really is a simple way to add tones of the same colour together!

For my added detail, I have cut a strip of Basic White card and used another sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthday's Stamp Set across at different intervals using Seaside Spray again.  

I have embossed the same sentiment onto Basic Black Card using White Stampin' Emboss Powder, cut down into a simple banner and attached; another great way of making a sentiment stand out and one of my signature techniques!

To finish, I have added two small flowers that I have coloured with Purple Posy and Mint Macaron Stampin' Blends pens

I really do love the style of these two cards and it shows that you can do more with this stamp set than just colour it in!
