Always Vintage

Does anyone else out there find it hard to select a ‘Blog Post Title’?


Maybe it’s just me, but I can never think of anything great so just usually go with a colour I’ve used in the creation I’m going to share or the stamp set name, or sometimes a mixture of both which is what this one is.


You may have noticed I’ve been posting 2 creations a day lately. I haven’t been receiving many comments so I’m not sure if you like that I’m posting more, or even if you like what you are seeing. I’d really, really appreciate some comments and let me know what you think. We all need a little encouragement at times and I’ve been trying my best of late to leave more comments on the blogs I view.


The card I’m going to share with you now I’ve made for the Utah Divas International Blog UDI Color Challenge #20.


At first I wasn’t too sure about these colours. I like them all individually but wasn’t sure what mix of each to use as I didn’t want my creation as dark as the dress for the inspiration.


After deciding which stamp set to use, selecting another layout to try from Card Positioning Systems (this time CPS#74) and having a little play around this is what I ended up with.

Stamp sets: Vintage Vogue
Card: Crumb Cake, Pretty In Pink, Regal Rose, Very Vanilla
Ink: Crumb Cake, Regal Rose, Always Artichoke
Accessories: Big Shot, Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder.


Till next time….

“B” is for ……



or maybe


Over on Krista Driessen’s Cards & Things Challenge Blog this week is a Colour Challenge.

This is the colours Krista provided.

These colours made me think ‘Boys’ and then while deciding on a stamp set I came across ‘Party Hearty’ and thought ‘Birthday’.

Considering it was only a week or so ago I was saying I struggle with ‘Male’ cards I think I’m starting to ‘not struggle’ any more…..lol

I’ve used a sketch from Card Positioning Systems and it’s #180.

Here’s what I came up with.

What do you think??

All layers of the main image (the centre piece too) is all mounted with Stampin’ Dimensionals to give it a bit of a lift.

Very simple but I think very effective.

Stamps: Party Hearty
Card: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Old Olive Patterns DSP (Brights Patterns Stack)
Ink: Old Olive & Pacific Point Markers
Accessories: 3/4” Circle Punch.

Till next time……
