TSOT 464 A Vintage Birthday

 I decided to pull out my new stamp set let’s see,  I don’t always have their name right at my fingertips so I’m looking for the stamp set so I can tell you what the name of it is oh Prized Peony. I haven’t played with it yet and decided I wanted to use it. So I made a panel and stamped a bunch of peonies on it masking as I went along and then colored them in some.
 I have to tell you vintage style cards are hard for me. I’m never sure what to do with them other than distressing the edge of the paper.  After I made my panel I decided it probably needed to be toned down a little so I used some splatters of the new in color Cinnamon Cider and scrunched it up then I thought -I don’t like that!  So I stamped another Peony cut it out to pop it up on the card what do you think? Used some of the new InColor 6 x 6 designer series paper in Cinnamon Cider and distressed that, punched the edge with an old stampin’ up edge punch that I really do like. Then added a little cream strip of Card stock behind it so you could see the design. I used some fine gold ribbon wrapped three times not sure you can see it very good. The sentiment is from Label Me Bold which was in the spring mini catalog and is now retired.  There you have it I think I followed the theme and the sketch this time pretty well. At least I think it looks sort of vintage but like I said I’m not a big vintage person when it comes to making cards so if you think I could’ve done something different to make it more vintage let me know! There’s a place below or you can leave comments it sure is nice to see what other people think! Have a wonderful day don’t let this one scare you off I sure didn’t! Check everybody else out and remember we’ve got a open spot on the designer team.

  1. I like it Vicki. I love vintage cards and use to collect them. So this is something I would like to create. Wish stamping up would develop some very vintage looking stamps.


TSOT 591. Fun panel card

 Our technique this time is layering. I decided to not follow the sketch and just do some layering. I’m not sure this is what they really me...
