Vintage thank you

Just a little thank you note I made for one of the ladies in my stamp club who did me a sweet favour! The yellow block is sponged through a mask I made by using some scratch paper and punching a couple of 1 1/4" squares out - I had seen Connie do something similar:)

Vintage Birthday

Another vintage vogue card. I decided not to fight it - my favourite style is vintage, romantic, parisian, burgundies, etc. so I'm being indulgent and doing what I like.
I also drew inspiration on these vintage cards from Connie.

Happy un-birthday, friend!

I'm meeting a friend for a birthday lunch in a few days...her birthday is in February and mine in June...we're a little late, so I made an un-birthday card:) I'm loving vintage vogue these days!

Paper toile?

...well not quite, but I saw the idea of popping up layers on a flower stamp and had to try it out. Here's what I came up with...

Friend Card

I had borrowed the stampset this sentiment is in to see if I needed to order it. I didn't, but it was fun to play with;) Still loving my medallion stamp:)

Inspired by Shawna

I made this card last weekend I think. It's inspired by Shawna's card here. My flowers are made out of scallop punches though - I thought it would be fun to try to create that look:)

Altered Frame

I had a tough week at work and really needed the hour I took today to be creative. I decided to make a frame for a picture of my husband and I that I plan to take to the office for my desk...something positive to focus on on a tough day, you know?!

The papers come from the Be Mine Stack. Stamps used are from SU - baroque motifs & wing it, and Inkadinkado. Flowers are from Prima. Brads are $ Store actually. Lace is from Treasured Memories (Edmonton); ribbon is kraft taffeta from SU, and the heart charm is from A Charming Place.

Oh, and the frame is just a $1.50 wood frame from Michaels:) I used Chestnut fluid chalk ink from my Q to do the edges...
