Vintage or not……

Hello friends….. today is my last post as a guest designer at The Rubber Cafe. I have had so much fun playing with their stamps.
 I have a tag and a card for you. I wanted something vintage looking and something modern from the same stamp set. And this Vintage Treasures Set was a great way to achieve both looks.

Let's make something...

thanks tag

I love how this tag turned out. The background was stamped with the receipt stamp, then I masked off all but a small sentiment on the larger stamp in the Vintage Treasures set.

I am really kind of liking this sentiment that I stamped and heat embossed on the tag after inking it with distress inks. I also inked and fussy cut the clock and the butterfly. The “Thanks” sentiment was stamped, then die cut and adhered to tag over the lace.

Did I happen to mention how much I love this Vintage stamp set?!?

Next I made a card with bright colors and a fun fold.

Bright Blue, Lime Green and Yellow making this card appropriate for a man or a woman.
To make a similar card, you want to cut a card base 7 1/2 x 5 inches. Score halfway on the long edge. Cut a strip of card stock at about 1 1/2 by 4 inches.

Adhere a small section of this strip to back of card so about 2 1/2 inches fold to the front of the card. Attach a butterfly, flower, button etc. so the strip can be tucked just enough to keep the card closed. Attach all of this to a piece of card stock that measures the standard 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch size.

Decorate along the way as desired.

Thank you so much for letting me share a little of my card making with you. I hope you return to this blog often for more creative inspiration. 

Thank you again to The Rubber Cafe team…I had a blast.
