Craftstamper, March - Stamping Contrasts

I made a couple of cards for the featured plate (Creative Expressions, Vintage Sewing) in the latest issue of Craftstamper which was out yesterday.  It's a lovely set and I really enjoyed making these cards with it....


Here's a sneak peak...






I used the GCD Paris Nights card pack to make 
these which suited the style really well.


The black and white ribbon was originally two separate pieces, one slightly wider than the other, which I stitched together.

Saw these in Craft Stamper Carol... lovely interpretations. I love the little embossed button border too. I have these stamps and they are so versatile.

Great cards Carol. I love colour but a restrained or even monochromatic colour scheme can be very elegant.
