Did you know the three frame stamp images in the FREE* Vintage Vogue stamp set (pictured at bottom of the post) have coordinating Stampin’ Up! punches to make using the set even easier and more fun?  I love getting punchy!

Wanting to use the Crushed Curry card stock and ink, I referred to the Stampin’ Up! 2009-2010 In Color Combination Chart and came up with my color combination.  The combination chart used the current In Colors in combination with the 48 Stampin’ Up! exclusive colors and some of the neutral colors.   On my own, I do not think I would have paired Crushed Curry with Basic Gray.   I probably would have gone for the obvious in the Earth Elements.  But, I wanted a Vintage look and not an autumn color combination.  I am very pleased with the results.

Stampin_Up_Backgrounds_1To step up my simple card, I used the Stampin’ Up! Backgrounds 1 Texturz Plate (Damask) in my Big Shot.  It did the trick.

While I had my Big Shot all warmed up, I used it with the Lots of Tags Sizzlits 4-Pack Dies.


The one pictured in the lower right corner is the perfect fancy layer for the Wide Oval Punch.


My card stock color and sizes are

Crushed Curry:  5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″

Basic Gray:  3″ x 4-1/4″

Going Gray:  (2) 1/2″ x 4-1/4″ and scrap for Lots of Tags die

White Naturals:  scrap piece to stamp and punch with Wide Oval Punch
