It's All About the VINTAGE!

I was thrilled to be invited to the It's All About the Vintage design team and today sees me joining in with my first challenge.  The challenge blog is a beauty - and is everything I love, vintage, old-fashioned and retro!  This fortnight's challenge brief is:-


This can either be dry or heat embossing - whatever takes your fancy.    We have two generous sponsors for the challenge:-

My contribution towards the design team are a gift bag and a shaped card.  I have dabbled with both dry and heat embossing. First the gift bag - I have used a vintage image, lovely frames and dies all from Marianne Design - as these are perfect for the vintage/old fashioned feel I needed....I have distressed and coloured with Walnut Stain distress inks.  My butterfly is an Andy Skinner stamp and this I have stamped with brown ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.  The tag was stamped with the sentiment before running through the Cuttlebug.

My second DT piece is a shaped card - again using Marianne Design candle dies and vintage image.  Embossing can be found on the little girl image, candles and background layers (both dry and heat embossing).
 I would like to enter the following challenges with my gift bag:-

Divas by Design - "Anything Goes"

The Crafty Pad - "Vintage"

Fab n Funky - "Vintage"

With my shaped card I would like to enter the following challenges:-

Stamp & Create - "Winter Wonderland"

Stamp n Doodle - "Wet Embossing"

I hope you can join in the It's all about the Vintage challenge blog and look forward to seeing you there!  Suzanne ~x~
