Thank you !

We've zoomed through another month which  means it's time for the next challenge over at The Vintage Stamping Challenge. This time we would like to see your Thank You projects.

I decided to make a thank you card as I've never got one when I need one ! I started with the background and blended Pan Pastels over it and then used a Crafty Individuals stamp with black Archival ink. I then stamped a Crafty Individuals swirl over the card with embossing ink and blended more Pan Pastels over it. I've used a Tim Holtz Texture Fades folder and more Pan Pastels. I cut a dress form using the die from the Tim Holtz Mini Sewing Room set from black card, stamped the Crafty Individuals Swirl with embossing ink and blended more Pan Pastels over the top. The stamped dress form is from the same Crafty Individuals set as the background stamp I've used.

The main image is a Flonz Craft stamp and the text is from a Craft Obsessions set. The flower is cut from Crinoline using the Tim Holtz Tattered Flower die and I've coloured it using the Tattered Rose DI.

I'm also entering this card into the Pan Pastels challenge which is Anything Goes and the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge which is also Anything Goes.

I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge.

  2. Gorgeous Sue. Love how you've used the PP's over that Texture Fade background element and the stamped background with the swirls. Very clever. Hugs, Jenny x

  3. Wow Sue! I love your vintage "thank you" card. It's shabby chic gorgeous! I love how you have used so many different images using a sewing theme to create such a lovey card. The two different dress forms look amazing on the left side of your card. I love the embossed measuring tape background. I love the little piece of delicate vintage lace and the shabby tattered dimensional flower on the lower right. It really balances out your design and frames your "thank you" so well! Thanks for sharing your always beautiful cards with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
