Last month, I had some cards published in Cardmaking Stamping and Papercraft magazine using the gorgeous Timeless Portrait Product Suite from the current catalogue. To be honest it was pretty easy coming up with a colour scheme for my cards – I simply used the colours in the Designer Series Paper as my starting point and went from there! I love how the Forever Young Stamp set co-ordinates so perfectly with these papers and that some of the patterns lend themselves well to being stamped over the top of too ;).
For the focal point of my card above, I have stamped the tree with the swing in Versamark over the top of the clock paper and embossed it in black for a more dramatic effect. The little strip of red cameos if from another design in the same paper pack.
Here’s another of my cards from the series :
For this one I have used Heat and Stick Powder and Fine Galaxy Black glitter to give the Parlor Prints background stamp a bit of shimmer. This time I have used the larger cameo design from the Timeless Portrait Designer Paper as a the main feature on the card.
The good news it that Forever Young will be making an appearance in the new catalogue (out in September), however, the coordinating papers are retiring along with the rest of the current Designer Series Papers.
