Classic Cameo

I recently treated myself to some new stamps from Waltzing Mouse Stamps but hadn’t had a chance to use them so I settled down this afternoon to have a play. I love the classic elegance of these images which I think work perfectly for CAS cards.

WMSC115_thumb4The first one is created using the sketch over at WaltzingMouse sketch challenge.


I’ve stamped the cameos and a frame stamp all from WM and heat embossed in either black or white, layered them up on Nestie die cuts and plopped them on some  script patterned paper, adding a little ribbon with some gems across the top.


I made another card using just one of the cameo images.  I cut the oval nestie on co-ordinations white wash card stock and lightly sanded the embossed areas before layering with an oval of black card the stamped cameo image which I've edged with a touch of Victorian velvet distress ink.


Some little flourish stamps, a message and a bit of bling and we’re done. I’m sharing this here -

 Less Is More – Oval

CAS-ual Fridays – White and Black plus one

Crafty Ribbons – Vintage

Crafty-emblies – picture perfect

I hope you’ve all had a relaxing, enjoyable weekend, thanks for visiting...Esther xx


  1. So beautiful...I love the vintage look with the cameo's, they are so classy.

  2. Thank you for joinIng the second challenge 'picture perfect' over on the Crafty-Emblies blog/page.

    What two fantastic cards. I like them both for different reasons.
    The first one with the four sillouettes framed in those beautiful diecuts would be perfect for a male or female. It is very elegant.
    The second one I love for it's simplicity and clean design.
    Both of these are great cards with great framed silloettes.

    I hope you will visit us again and take part in future challenges over on Crafty-Emblies.

    Hugs Lisa. Xxxx DT
