Vintage Verses

Hello Stampers! How's your week going?  We got lots of rain in Phoenix yesterday, which is always good, we need it!  So I've been playing with some other new items from the Spring catalog.  Impulse buying applies to stamping stuff, right?  Well, technically, I received the white creped filter paper free from Stampin' Up! as part of a promotion, except I don't remember why.  Hmm...anyhow, I had this paper sitting around my room and so glad I finally decided to play with it. I've seen various flowers made with this paper and I wanted to try it out.  A huge thanks to fellow demo Patty Bennett for her instructions on creating this flower. I couldn't create just one, but two!

I used three different punches for my flower. The 1 1/4 scallop circle, 1 3/4 scallop circle and the 2 3/8 scallop circle. The trick to using the creped filter paper with our punches-use copy paper to punch out your shape one at a time. The filter paper is really thin.  I punched out each shape four times and then crumpled it up to give it texture. Then I spritz some vanilla shimmer smooch spritz onto the paper for a slight shimmer effect. 

OMG, I'm hooked!  You can dye, sponge, stamp on this paper, even use with your Big Shot but for these flowers, I like them in white. See why I couldn't just make one flower!  Paired with the Sycamore Street dsp from SAB and coordinating ribbon and the Vintage Verses stamp set, y ya (just like that) you have a completed card.  Oh, another first for me, using Sahara Sand card stock. Love it!  

Well friends, thanks so much for stopping by.  Let me know what you think of the flower or if you have played with our white creped filter paper.  Until next time.
