Stampin' Up! Stampers Dozen Blog Hop July Edition is Tomorrow!

Hey there!  Today I have a refresh of a card I featured earlier this year using the collage technique. You can view the original one HERE.

The En Francais background stamp used on the original retired, so when my hostess for this past Saturday asked to make this card I had to think a bit to find a replacement.

I believe I found perfection with Postage Due, stamped in Sahara Sand for the first layer of the collage stamping technique.


After stamping the Postage Due, we followed with the tree from Thoughts & Prayers stamped in Always Artichoke, and blossoms from Flower Shop and Petitie Petals in Rich Razzleberry. We softly sponged color on the images with a soft, swirling motion instead of pouncing or dragging the sponge.

The greeting is from And Many More with a stamped-off Always Artichoke tree behind it, then punched with the Large Oval Punch.

We used the new Venetian Crochet Trim behind the Rich Razzleberry Scalloped Oval, then finished off with a Papillon Potpourri butterfly punched with the Elegant Butterfly punch.


Inside we collage-stamped just like the outside, then added a sentiment from A Lovely Romance with Always Artichoke ink.

That's all for now! The Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop begins at midnight EDT, so all of our creations will be here in the morning!

Until tomorrow, have a Stampingrox! day!

FABULOUS your color choices! Very sad that En Francais retired...loved that background stamp - but agree that you found a very nice replacement. Can't say or see anything that I do not love on this card!
