Vintage and Penny Black

I love vintage but I rarely work with that style. I had made a little kit with vintage embellishments for a card last summer and never got around to using it. I finally poured the contents on my mat last night and went to town!

"Just for you" is stamped on the vintage ephemera by 7Gypsies. Bingo card by Jenni Bowlin.  Tape by TH. Black trim from HL. White bead trim from HL and glimmer misted with black.

Cameo button from HL. Handmade flower by Stephanie. I attatched the button with glossy accents.

Stamp by Penny Black. I love this stamp but I think it's difficult to work with. I love what Sharon did with it and I love the sketch she followed, too, so... I copied it :) I used papers from Phresh and Phunky by BG.

I inked the stamp with blue chalk ink. Colored the middle of the stamp with a brown brush tip marker and then stamped on white paper. Stamped again with versamark and embossed the flowers with sparkly blue powder. Used twine and a pretty brad to finish.

White ribbon from Ms. Beaded trim from HL. Gorgeous button... Bazzill, I think.

Love the cameo button in the middle of the flower. Great mix of pp in the second card

Oh thank you for for the mention and the link to my blog! I think you did a fabulous job with the PB stamp here - I especially love the twine and that gorgeous rose brad you incorporated. All three cards are simply stunning - you really have a knack for vintage style. Would love to see you play in the Sugar Creek Hollow challenges - they're all focused on vintage, shabby chic, etc. Kind of cool I was a bit of inspiration for someone as talented as you. Thanks for the follow as well!
