Happy Friday! Tonight I am sharing with you the card I created following Vicki's sketch over at Stamp TV. For this card, I used two different stamp sets by Nina Brackett - Lovely Shelf and Nana's Needlework. My dp is from a new 8x8 paper pad I just picked up at the stamp store. It by October Afternoon and this collection is called The Thrift Shop. I have to say - it's a must have! I layered with some scraps of card stock that I had in my scrap bin. Next, I created my center strip and added some fun measuring tape ribbon for some texture. I then popped on three vintage buttons with some yellow leaves that I punched out using the MS frond punch. I then inked up the fabulously lacy doily from Nana's Needlework in Versamark and SU! Blue Bayou inks, stamped onto ivory card stock, and heat embossed with clear powder. I cut it out and used it as my side element. Lastly I used a sentiment from Lovely Shelf, added some of the small button flower images from Nana's Needlework (I stamped them off once first so they would be in the background), and some sponging - all in SU! Blue Bayou ink. I have had that pearly straight pin pokin' around my desk for too long, so I stuck it into the card as the finishing touch!
Have a great night! I hope to be around with more posts this weekend!
