Masquerade Vogue Dress Card

Masquerade Vogue Dress Card

Masquerade Vogue Dress Card

Given that I've been MIA for far too long, I've no idea if anyone will see this blog post but I do hope so as its Classic Dips!
Card Recipe:
Stamp: Stamps Happen (Vogue Silhouette) 
Tools: Spellbinders - French Frills Die Set, Venetian Accents Die Set, Grand Calibur
Colouring Mediums: Martha Stewart Glitter Embossing Powder, Versamark
Paper and Card: First Edition, Conqueror, Stardream, 
Embellishments: Creative Expressions Pearl Swirls
Stamps Happen Vogue Silhouette Rubber Stamp
It's no secret that I love a fashion rubber stamp and this "oldie but a goodie" from Stamps Happen is one of my favourites. Its just so elegant but also versatile! This time I stamped the image using clear Versamark and then heat embossed with Martha Stewart Glitter embossing powder in a rich emerald green colour.

Now, I'm always a "more is more" kind of crafter, and this lovely stamp, which is tall and narrow left me with plenty of room to add quite a bit of frou-frou embellishment. 

Spellbinders Venetian Accents Die Set
So I added a backing card decorated which I edged with a die cut from the Spellbinders Venetian Accents Die Set. I used the same die set to cut the fabulous Masquerade Mask. I also used Spellbinders French Frill Die Set to cut out the Mannequin form, using the innder die to paper-piece with an offcut from my backing paper. I finished this embellishment topper with a pretty pearl swirl topped with a pair of my signature hand-made hat pins.
