One More Post

So one more post for tonight - I have been holding onto these two cards for a little while because I've actually sent one to a lovely lovely lady who sometimes frequents this blog (wave wave!!!!) and didn't want to give anything away until she'd recieved her little package, but I can't wait any longer because I really really like these cards...

These are both using the Vintage Vogue stamp set from the current mini - this is SUCH a fabulous stamp set - so very very VERSATILE and BEAUTIFUL and EASY to use...the card pretty much just makes itself.

I've started with a base of Natural's Ivory which I only bought after seeing how much Kirsty Brown uses it (I actually didn't even realise this cardstock existed till seeing this post) and I LOVE it - it is so lovely and natural and organic looking/feeling - then I've used a layer of Baja Breeze.
On the first card I have used the Medallion Stamp as a background, on the second card I've run the wheel that matches the Vintage Vogue set along the cardstock in versamark (have I told you how much I LOVE versamark as well!!! hehehehe). The rest is pretty much just stacks of the flower images from the Vintage Vogue stamped once, twice and a third time to create the different depths of colour in Baja Breeze and Sahara Sand, stuck together and a pearl or crystal stuck in the middle.

I love the very vintage-ey feel of these cards - I had a great time making them, and I really hope their recipients enjoy them too!!

Thanks for coming by!!!!

Smiles and more smiles,
