New Catalogue Vintage

When I first looked through my new catalogue I didn't think there was a lot of new vintage style stamps. I was rather pining for my Artistic Etchings and Elements of Style I'm afraid to say.
But I didn't give up.  And this is what I created in just 20 minutes!!! of attempting a Vintage style card with some new products I have purchased.

 I have used Brown Sugar, Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding together with Very Vanilla. I love these new in colours.
Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder in Very Vanilla sits nicely on top of my stamped Dictionary image in Soft Suede.
The Chalk Talk Stamp sets off my vintage card perfectly with a bit of frayed 7/16" Trim ribbon.
I tore the Beautifully Baroque embossed cardstock on an angle to show off the Dictionary stamp underneath a bit more.
And the Flowershop Flowers in Crisp Cantaloupe just finished the card off nicely I thought.

Well I enjoyed making this card so much I wanted to do it again.... but show a stepped-up version.
So here is my New Catalogue Vintage card - Version 2...

This time round I embossed the stamped Dictionary cardstock and lightly ran some soft suede ink over it to highlight the embossing. I reversed the positions of the two matts. This time placing the stamped Dictionary image on top and tearing it to expose the very vanilla embossed cardstock underneath.

I used the Very Vintage Designer Buttons for the flower centres. I painted these buttons with some retired White Shimmer Paint.
I also used a paper doily that was sponged with Brown Sugar and decorated with little pearls.
I added a twine bow and pearl to the Ribbon Trim as well.

Not bad I think considering my initial thoughts on the choice of new Vintage stamps in the catalogue.

More importantly I realise these images can be used for both modern and vintage cards which makes them doubly useful don't you agree? Oh Stampin Up you have done it Again!
(for any oldies thinking this sounds vaguely familiar:- "Oh Mr. Sheen You've Done it Again")hehe.

If you would like to purchase any of these stamps or products to make your own vintage cards please contact me or order through my website. I am happy to help you.
