Dear Father

Here is a nice Father's Day card that I made the other day. I don't have very many masculine type stamp sets. I thought Pocket Silhouettes would be nice. I used the curly tag label from Vintage labels and stamped the silhouette inside then punched it all out with the curly label punch. The sentiment is from Well Scripted. I did a little sponging around the edges to soften it up. I really like this card. Pleasing to look at. I think I say this every time but... I really really love the Vintage Labels stamp set. It happens to be free (until March 31) when you spend $50 on Stampin' Up products. Thanks for stopping by!
stamps: Vintage Labels, Pocket Silhouettes, Well Scripted

Plum For You

Hi there! Here is a quick and super easy card that I made today. I used the Sale-A-Bration set Vintage Labels. I have this set in clear mount, so what I did was randomly place the three label stamps on my large clear block, inked it all up, then stamped all the stamps at once. I think I stamped it two or three times to fill the piece of paper. I love the randomness of that technique. This set is really growing on me. The great thing about this set is that the three label stamps coordinate perfectly with three of Stampin' Up's punches! Love that! Hope you enjoy today's card. Thanks for stopping by! :)

Hi everyone! Here is a cute little card I made the other day. Once again I was inspired by one of Dawn's cards. She made a cute card with some really cute ruffles and I just had to give it a try. First I rolled the Very Vintage wheel in Crushed Curry ink onto Whisper White cardstock. Then I used the scalloped punch and punched out a few lines of scallops. I sponged the scallops a little with Creamy Caramel ink. Glued them on in layers and gave them a little fluffing. The cute border around the 'For You' is the Vintage Labels Sale-A-Bration set. I thought this card turned out so cute and fluffy. Thanks for stopping by! :)
