Established Elegance ...

I do like new stampsets ...
very very much, and new tools to play with!
I have CASE'd (copy and share everything) this card, almost exactly, from the Stampin' Up! idea book  on page 83, because I just love the antique elements and details.
From the First edition newsprint on the circle scallop die to the embossed framed image and distressed paper ... the antique tag and crumpled lace, antique brad, pearls and crumpled ribbon.
 The stampset is called Established Elegance: it has a very vintage, very french antique style... which considering my advancing age is very me at the moment... and its very fashionable to be antique right now.
So that's what made me happy this week: a new stampset and an antique card to share.


  1. This card has so many elements and details to look at. I really like the scallop circle. It is such a beautiful lumpy, bumpy card. This stamp set is my favourite.

  2. This card is beautiful and you did a great job CASE'ing it!! Love it when I can use the Stampin' Up! Catalog for inspiration and my cards come out like they should!

    I will be featuring this card on My Crafty Picks #57 with a link back to your blog on 3-18-12. Make sure to stop by to check out all the picks and to pick up your blog badge to display on your blog for being featured!!

    Thanks and take care
