When it comes to vintage digital stamps, I can't stop making them. I love the versatility and the style. You can change the size, the color, mix and match, leave them black and white or color them in and they all look so wonderful. Which is why I chose this venue for our current challenge at
Craft Us Crazy; which is
FAVORITE STAMP COMPANY and/or FOUND INSPIRATION!
My favorite inspiration has to be vintage images and I've chosen to use images provided by the lovely Pamela at Free Vintage Digital Stamps. Here they are...
The sentiment I designed on the PC and then printed it onto the cardstock. Added the gorgeous free face image mounted over an embossed oval frame. Placed this over the wonderful Be Mine paper from echo park, a lovely gift from Cathy over at Cathy's Creative Place ...thank you!!! A pink bow and flower in her hair and there you have it, a fun and quirky card for a special female in your life.
What a blast it was to make this little card. I fell in love with this free vintage cutie. Decided to only partially color the image, highlighting the little girl. I needed some background writing paper and found this in a set of free downloadable vintage paper kit from Far Far Hill. The library card is also a freebie from a set of four to choose from and they can be found here. Stamped the sentiment from Kindness Matters and the pen tip from Established Elegance, both stamp sets from Stampin' Up! Finished up with a sheer blue bow and she's ready for the mail!
I Really Do
This particular card is self-explanatory. I love free olives and quirkiness, you may have noticed that about me by now and so I designed a little card around them. The papers are again from echo park, Be Mine 6x6 pad. The olives are colored copics. I thought a fairly direct and fun little card.
So, that's the trio, because one is never enough...
