Vintage Page Designs - More Vintage Bird Kit

Hi blog friends,

I have been so thrilled to be part of Ali Manning's Guest DT to introduce you to her fabulous vintage Etsy site.  If you haven't visited Ali's Vintage Etsy Shop yet, do yourself the pleasure.  It's a visual walk back in time that will truly deight your senses and inspire your vintage creativity. 

Ali, asked me to participate in designing with her vintage bird kit and I have to tell you this kit is stunning!  Ancient pages, illustrations, images, and seam bindings are just part of what you'll find in this kit. 

Today is my day to show case a project I've created with the Vintage Bird Kit and I couldn't be more excited.  I used so much of material in the kit, yet...I have so much more to use. 

Months ago, while shopping the $1.00 bin in Michael's Craft store, I found some chipboard house books.  I had no idea at the time what I might do with them, but ,for a buck......I HAD to buy them.  I bought two now wish I'd bought more.   

I hope all you vintage crafters will take a peek at Vintage Page Designs Ali's blog and then the fab Etsy shop.

Thank you for stopping by!!  Have a great week!!!



 Hi blog friends!!!

I have two postings today.  Please page up for my Vintage Page Designs post.

Here at Repeat Impressions it's time for another What If? Wednesday Sketch Challenge.  Come on over and play!  Here's Wendy's sketch! 

And here's my card

 For this card I used "Belle" Repeat Impressions stamp #701-K and the sentiment is #2501.  I captured only the "Happy Birthday" sentiment by masking (with a piece of scotch tape) over the words I didn't want to appear then before stamping, I took the tape off.  The sentiment and image are cut out and then placed on the card with dimensionals.  The dp is Kaisercraft 6x6 pack English Rose Collection.  The pink ribbon is vintage from my collection. Die is from MFT.

Come play with us and post your own creation using Wendy's sketch up on The House That Stamps Built.  (details on the blog)  Please visit my Rock Star friends for more stunning inspirations using this sketch. 

Thank you for stopping by and your comments MAKE my day!!!!  BIG HUGS.

Hi there blog friends! 
I hope you all had a Happy Mother's Day!!!

We're here for another fabulous STAMP OF THE WEEK with Repeat Impressions - The House That Stamps BuiltThis week's stamp, which you can purcahse at 50% off is stamp #8214-N Persian.  Just link over to House That Stamps Built and grab the code and add this beauty to your collection.  Don't you just LOVE this face???? 

I made this card for a friend and co-worker, Joan and her family who just adopted two adorable 12 year old Himalayan cats.  The kitties had to surrendered by their elder owners because they were moving to a nursing care facility and couldn't bring along their babies.  How sad, yet, how wonderful that Joan and her family were willing to adopt older cats.  She tells me they are doing fantastic and are adapting very well to their new home. 

My image was masked then stamped twice to get two side by side images. I colored them with Copic Markers, cut them out and placed them on the embossed layer with dimensionals.  I love that sentiment stamp - it was perfect for this card, I think. #4031G
