Mom Butterfly

It's another challenge over at
The color scheme is very spring...

I made a mother card
using the stamp set called 
On Vintage Wings.

I stamped that flower several times
and fussy cut them out!

I love this butterfly, it looks great on every card. 
It's from one of my favorite vintage theme sets!

Now here are a few more cards using 
They are also in the current 
challenge color scheme.

I'm back again this Friday with
another altered bingo card.

I'm linking up to Unity's Friends with Flair 
blog party.  The stamp I used is a 
set called All About Hope.

I used JB number brads,
a 1934 vintage used envelope,
wax floss, a leaf punch, ribbon,
and a distress ink & stencil.

A long while ago, I purchased some
vintage Bingo cards off Etsy.
Then last summer,
I got a real steal on some
more at a garage sale.
So, having an overstock
sparked some motivation!
This little sign was made using
I love hanging cute crafty
signs like this on one of the
handles of my curio cabinet.
I've also hung them off the
corner of wall mirrors
and bedroom door handles.

Your Story

I'm finally getting back into 
The raised gold on his tag
had me wide eyed!


I haven't got on board 
with the guesso yet, but
just embossed in gold instead!
I don't emboss often enough,
so hooray for inspiring challenges!!

I cut my key screen out of paper.

That cute phrase came out of my 
Inspiration Station book.

I couldn't find the last word
in the packet of stickers.

I felt like a serial killer
patching together the letters
with a razor blade & tweezers!

But from a distance you didn't
even notice, did you?

This crisp white flower was made using
flower die cuts & a leaf punch.

Travel Challenge

Howdy howdy howdy.
It's Monday & I'm tackling 
the travel challenge at Frilly and Funkie.

I used a cluster of various items 
for a shabby junk look.
Can you tell I'm a Tim Holtz fan?

The pendiment die cut and Simple Sayings
stamp are from the Funkie Junkie Boutique.

That stamp is from an authentic 1924 envelope!
I bought a huge lot of them at an antique store.

You can find a few at my Etsy shop
I put a few in my old desk organizer.
It's been fun making cards with them.
I have other projects using them too,
so keep checking my blog
if you love ephemera!
