The "Lots to do" challenge this week is vintage. Here's a piece I did with supplies from Crafty Secrets. I visited a dear friend in Victoria British Columbia earlier this month, and was lucky enough to catch a Scrapbooking Expo out there. Well, Sandy's "Crafty Secrets" booth was absolutely positively enchantingly FABULOUS! Hope I've done some of her beauties justice. I've used Flower Soft and glitters and punches and pearls...well...Victorian vintage is always so over-the-top OPULENT, isn't it!? ;)
Here's the full piece, and I've posted close-ups as well.
My friend's little girl said "It looks just like a playhouse for fairies..."isn't that just the BEST!? I have a feeling that "Crafty Secrets" might well become a bigger part of my paper crafting future!
Here's another vintage piece. I used my Silhouette cutter to create this card, with a vintage ship cutting file I purchased from Mary over at Mamaw's Legacy , and a sentiment stamp from Impression Obsession, paired with the longest Shapeabilities Tags Five label from Spellbinders. I find it such a challenge to create cards for men, so I was really pleased with this one. Mary's cutting files are wonderful! This card also fits with the "Pick Three" challenge. (I used an image that starts with "S," a tool I haven't used in a while [my Silhouette cutter...I've owned it for nearly a year, but this week, I've been cutting up a storm! lol], and a tiny bit of black ribbon)
Over at Moxie Fab World, and at Paper Sundaes, the challenge is paper piecing. This is a card with images I stamped, coloured, and pieced from Hanna Stamps, and sentiments from Stamping Bella. I also used a page from an old French book, brayered with a Kaliedacolour Ink Pad.
The Charisma Cardz challenge this week is "Spring." This card uses the Silhouette lacy butterflies background (cutting file from Quickutz), and a stamp from Hero Arts. The butterflies were punched with a Martha Stewart punch, then glittered with gold Glitter Ritz from Quietfire Design. This card also fits the "spring and new growth" challenge over at Gingersnap Creations.
Thanks so much for taking the time to visit today. I wish you a creative weekend!
