Hello everyone! We’re on day three of sneak peeks for My Creative Time’s November release. And, today, we’re all showcasing two new sets: Keepin’ It Classy and Classy & Fabulous. I have to admit that I am in total love with the images from Keepin’ It Classy. Emma’s brother, Mark Villar, hand drew them all.
I knew I was going to make a card for today’s project, but I have to admit, what I was envisioning, is not the final product. I’m thinking you’ll see that Friday because I still plan to make it. Anyway, my card base is Papertrey Ink Dark Chocolate and is a standard A2. I used Aqua Mist as a mat for my patterned paper. Both papers are from the first Lost & Found collection from My Mind’s Eye. The mat is from the Madison Avenue collection, and the paper that my image is stamped on is from the Union Square collection.
I used Elegant Edges and my Expression to cut the frame for my focal image. You can find the frame on page 65. I used the oblong and I sized everything with my Gypsy. I stamped my image with Chocolate Chip ink from Stampin’ Up. I then used VersaMark Dazzle to stamp the wine glass and I embossed it with gold Zing embossing powder from American Crafts. I will apologize now for the darkness of my photos. I craft in the middle of the night. I did use Tea Dye and Vintage Photo Distress inks to give everything an antique look, because otherwise, the papers were all too bright (especially the Aqua Mist) but it’s really not that dark in person.
The label that my sentiment is stamped on is from the Teresa Collins Sophisticated cartridge. I am in love with the fonts Emma used for Classy & Fabulous. Just as I did with the wine glass, I embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder. Generally, I prefer to emboss my sentiments. I don’t do a lot of embellishing on my projects, so I feel like that kind of makes up for it. As I always say, there is a method to my madness and I have a reason behind everything.
