Another vintage valentine

Here's yet another card from a vintage card class.  This one features 2 areas of flowersoft (on the hat and butterfly) which creates a lovely 3D effect. I think there'll be more of this to come!

Just because bling

Here's another card which didn't get picked up by Cards Magazine in a recent publication call. I just love these colours (inspired by Crate Paper's Restoration line) and these flower rosettes are super easy to make.  Gather ribbon (using a running stich close to one edge) and layer it on a circle die cut.  I adhered mine using scor tape but you could use fabric glue. Out a button or brad in the centre and you're done :)

Take 2 - vintage labels

When I find a sketch or colour combo that I like, I've started making 2 cards - 2 takes on the same layout or element. Here are a couple of cards I made recently which use Very Vintage Labels 5 from Waltzingmouse stamps.

The rosette flower was made by gathering ribbon (using a running stich close to one edge) and layering it on a circle die cut.  I adhered mine using scor tape but you could use fabric glue:


Paper - PTI raspberry fizz, hibiscus burst, SU bella rose DSP, pink pirouette
Stamps - PTI background basics: retro, Waltzingmouse very vintage labels 5
Ink - Versafine onyx black, memento rose red dye ink
Accessories -PTI raspberry fizz, hibiscus burst satin ribbon, hibiscus burst button, scor tape, sewing machine, clear embossing powder, kaisercraft clear rhinestones
