A Vintage Obsession! :)

Coffee of the Day - Texas Pecan

Good evening! I was able to make a few cards today, but had to, I mean REALLY HAD TO make a vintage card to finish things off!!!! ;) I can make other cards, but then I just had an itch to get back to my true love - those distressed, shabby, torn up, old roughed up cards that look absolutely ANCIENT! :D So this is what I whipped up. My youngest son even graciously fixed dinner for all of us while I stamped. How cool is that?!?!

This card uses 2 sets by Stampin' Up - Bella's Bloom (stamped in the bg) and Bloomin' Beautiful. I tried the Cracked Glass technique again, and am really pleased with how it turned out. Sponge a bit of brown ink in the cracks and it ages the piece quite nicely! The pink pirouette cs was sponged with both vanilla and white craft ink to add some interesting effects. The paper is from Daisy D's. The flower is Prima and the buttons & lace are vintage treasures from Etsy.

Try a new technique this week and then link back here so I can check out your glorious creation! :) Be brave and jump in! It's fun! You can do it!

It is so nice to have you back Jen, and you haven't missed a beat - everything is wonderful. I've been popping by, but no new posts and then I miss a couple of days and look at all these wonderful things - I'm so hope all continues to go well. I too love the "shabby" look even though I don't get to it often. These are all so amazing and pretty - love them all. Take Care, Dru
