A Waltzingmouse Blog Hop!



Good Morning!!


I'm here to share another quickie post with you today.  It's the 17th of the month, so that of course, means it is time for another Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz!  This is my second month playing along.  This month's challenge was to make something vintage/shabby chic.  This is a TOUGH style for me.  I think in general, I'm a fairly CAS stamper, so to go with distressing, and vintage, definitely not my usual.  I did find that Victorian Frippery helped though.

 
I used the fabulous border image from the set to make the large panel on the card front -- I think it looks kind of like old wallpaper, no?  I added some sweet blush and tea dye to the edges of the panel, added some faux stitching, and trimmed it with a bit of lace trim, and made a fun ruffled ribbon treatment, just pinching as I stuck it down to some scor-tape, on the front of my card.

Finished it with the Merci sentiment, and I'm good to go...perhaps not the fanciest, or shabbiest, but all in all, I think for being out of my comfort zone, not so bad!!

Thanks for stopping by, hope you all have a great day!!





Supplies:
Stamps: Victorian Fripperie (WMS)
Ink: Brilliance Chocolate, Sweet Blush (PTI) vintage touch ink (PTI)
Paper: Kraft, Shimmery White
Accessories: lace trim, sweet blush satin ribbon, piercer

Lovely, glad to hear I'm not the only CAS girl who wasn't sure how to go about making a shabby/vintage card.

Great the you tried out the vintage/shabby theme. It's a tough one for those of us that don't do it often, isn't it? But yet fun at the same time to try something new. Your card looks great!
