Vintage Variety

I love blog hopping on some sketch blogs when I actually get a chance to blog hop. A few week’s ago, I was checking out the Card Positioning Systems blog and was so inspired by their fantastic designs featuring their weekly sponsor. I’d never heard of  Keep in Touch Card Shop before but the fun vintage goodies and papers had me hooked right away. I had a little shopping spree and it wasn’t long until some goodies were in my mail box. I had to wait a couple weeks to play as things were busy but this week I finally found a little time for fun.

I’ve also been busy this week setting up a little Etsy store. I’ve had a few inquiries lately about selling my creations and so I finally got around to figuring it all out. There’s a new blog button link on the top right of my sidebar and you can also check it out here. Thanks so much for your interest!

And finally, as today is Thursday, it’s time for another challenge. Today I’m challenging you to a little vintage fun and to find some vintage things to put onto a card design. Look for vintage buttons, old cards and paper, lace, fabric…whatever you can think of. Have fun with it and the entire challenge details are here.



Here’s the vignette kit that I purchased and you can see how I used some of the supplies to make this card. I just added a few extra scraps of my own and a little stitching and I still have supplies for another couple projects. Alas, I was having so much fun with all the goodies, I didn’t even ink up one stamp. I supposed I could have squeezed in a little sentiment just to the right of the bird but I kind of like it the way it is so I called it done.


Quick Tip: Adhere sequins with Glossy Accents or other clear dimensional glaze. They make a fabulous adhesive.  Adhere sequins over printed polka dots for a fun look.

Supply List: Keep In Touch Vignette Kit, sewing machine, kraft cardstock by Bazzill Basics, lace paper by Basic Grey, ball trim by Fancy Pants Designs

Happy Creating!
