A Little Vintage Vogue

Sorry I've been MIA lately, my sweetie was sent overseas for a couple of weeks, and he usually does all the cooking, and stops by the store on his way home from work to get whatever we need, and you wouldn't believe how badly that has thrown me off! On top of that, my kids have had some crazy testing days scheduled at school that had me running back and forth EIGHT times a day, no lie. We get to do it again this week...yippee skippee. So, for right now, all I have is a card to show you that I made for a swap:

The cards are identical except for the pattern on the Bella Bleu Designer Series Paper (DSP). I had to make 50 cards and I didn't plan the size of the strip of paper correctly, and was short a few. The card I'd planned is the one on the left. For the remaining cards, I used a different pattern from the DSP package, and sponged over it with Creamy Caramel Classic Ink so it wasn't so terribly bright looking.  I also used Creamy Caramel ink to stamp the foliage over the saying on the tag. To keep it light, I inked up the stamp, and then stamped it off three times before stamping over the words. Another tip you'll want to keep in mind is that the large flower, and the wheel image, both have script words on them--make sure you have them oriented in the correct direction on your card when you stamp them.

You really need the Vintage Vogue stamp set (shown below), it's an instant year-round classic for any occasion. And of course, the Very Vintage Jumbo Wheel (shown below the stamp set) coordinates so beautifully, it's a must-have accessory.  Don't forget to order the Jumbo Handle for the wheel if you don't already have it!
