MOJO170 Going Vintage

Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and got spoilt rotten! I am loving having the hubby home at the moment as it gives me the opportunity to do some craft just for fun. I went to a class at my local scrapbook store last week and had some bits of product left over so thought I would use them for some cards. The sketch over at Mojo Monday this week was a goodie so thought I would give it a go. These papers lend themselves to the vintage look which I must admit is so not me although I absolutely love it just can't seem to get the look I envisage when I start. All well I guess practice makes ..... acceptable?
Here is what I used:
Stamps: Perfect Punchest
Paper: Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Hollywood Vogue DP by Webster's Pages (I think)
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Scallop Circle Punch, Wide Oval Punch, Antique Brad, Big Shot, Beautiful Wings Embossilit Die, Vintage Wallpaper EF, Ribbon, Pearl
While I was at it I used up some more of the same stuff to make this one. I liked the peacock on the paper so wanted that to feature.

Again not to sure if it works but hey at least I gave it a go. Here is what I used:

Stamps: Echoes of Kindness (retired)

Paper: Pale Plum (retired), same DP. Ink: Clear Versamark

Accessories: Satin Pearl EP, ribbon, flowers, pearls, Martha Stewart Punch, Big Shot, Spellbinders die

Hope you get some crafting time in during the silly season.

Happy stamping and stay safe,

Archer's Naming Day

Last Sunday we held a naming day for our newest addition, Archer. We just had some close friends and family over to help us welcome him into our lives. This is the card I made for him.

Here is what I used:

Stamps: Nil

Paper: Marina Mist, Whisper White

Ink: Whisper White Craft Ink, Marina Mist

Accessories: Big Shot, CB folder, Chipboard letter, Marina Mist Satin ribbon, Star Brad (retired)

For the letter I sponged it with Whisper White craft ink and then sponged over the top with the Marina Mist. I didn't put any sentiment on the front as nothing seemed quite appropriate. We had a lovely day although I think he was wondering what all the fuss was about!

Happy Stamping,
