Wow doesn't time disappear fast these days, I can't believe it is already Thursday again can you?
well as you know this month we have been using the Handbag stamps and the Vintage dress form stamps by Creative Expressions for our design team inspiration and as I used the handbag last week I thought I'd use a couple more of the dress forms , I also found a real vintage looking metal cameo so I of course had to use that too.
Soon it will be show time ( pardon the pun ) again and it is also my birthday on the 26th so in aid of all this, starting Monday 27thjan at 8.a.m and running all week until the 31st Jan at about 6pm I am going to have another little competition running and again all you will need to do is make sure you are a follower on the blog and leave me a comment on Mondays competition post and we will have one 1st prize and I will also send out a few of my cards I have made for the shows etc all signed to you too so don't miss out it will be a great prize which I will announce nearer the time.
So here is today's vintage card.
So here we go with the step by step for you bloglies hehe.
Next I took a piece of the Teresa Collins paper and tore it toward me until it was long and fairly thin and had pieces I could ink and spritz with water and curl up and as the paper is extremely good quality it takes well to this technique and doesn't just go soggy as it were.
I then wrapped some natural raffia around the first piece of card three times and tied a couple of small pieces into a knot or two on the right and i took another piece of inked paper and stuck it to the back of the card, I used a piece again from the TC pad this time with words on it, I made a hole in it and the embossed piece and used a small bead to secure the turn back in place, I then added 3mm thick foam to the back and stuck this piece down too, So this was to be the backing piece.
I stamped out my 2 vintage dress forms and used the Becca Feeken Vintage filigree labels die from Just Rite to cut it out with the largest shape, once cut out and embossed and inked through the die with Vintage photo Distress ink I took the die and turned it upside down on some black card and drew around it in white pen, I then cut it out with scissors to create a faux nestie and give just a tiny black border to separate the colours slightly. I also cut out 1 shape from the Heartfelt Creations Raindrops o roses die which is fabulous and I then snipped it in half and added it behind the foam on my main image.
I stamped my sentiment from the Vintage Dress form pack and cut out with a little label pack from spellbinders die cuts ( I really love this font, so elegant)
I added more measure tape ribbon, a large metal Creative expressions corner and a wooden peg which at the end I added gold wax to also.
A photo taken with a little more of the dimension on show.
Well guys I hope you enjoyed the step by step for this one and that you like the card as much as me, i love this kind of style its right up my street as it were.
How are you all this week?
I was wondering what every ones favourite embellishments for cards were, metal or wood, flowers or bows , please leave a comment and let me know if you can I am very addicted to embellishments but never like to go over the top, however I could buy lots and lots of them as I really love anything miniature too.
Ok lovlies Have a great Thursday and I really look forward to answering all your comments tomorrow.
Lots of love and hugs
