Feeling Sentimental for The Paper Players

Greetings, Stampers! I hope you are all enjoying a nice weekend. I also hope that you'll have some time to join us today at The Paper Players with a new sketch challenge designed by  Jaydee. I know I say this all the time but I just love simple sketch challenges. They really allow your imagination to go wild. This one is no exception, and can be adapted for literally any stamp in your stash. So, come play with us!

I've been wanting to make a card with the Feeling Sentimental Stamp Set in neutral tones, and this was the perfect opportunity to do so. I combined it with two other stamp sets: Vintage Verses for the greeting, and French Foliage for the background behind the bike.

The background stamps from French Foliage seemed like they were a perfect pairing for this vintage bike. I stamped them in Crumb Cake, and the bike in Black Stazon, my favorite black because it never smudges or bleeds. The edges were sponged with more Crumb Cake ink. I finished things off with a tiny flower punched from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and a pearl.

Stampin' Up Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Feeling Sentimental, French Foliage, Vintage Verses
Card Stock: Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake
Designer Series Paper: First Edition
Ink Pads: Black Stazon, Crumb Cake
