In Love with Vintage

Hiya Peeps,

Well I hope you popped by yesterday to see Angels's introduction to the team and what a stunning introduction and array of cards it was too. So if you missed it, scroll down after you have read this post, of course, lol.

You know I love Friday's, don't we all, but today I get to show you my Art Deco Vintage card, which I am absolutely in love with. I was asked to make an Anniversary card using Art Deco and thankfully I have this fabulous stamp available from Crafts and Me HERE. I am falling in love with this style of stamp. They are currently out of stock but I know Teresa is expecting more in soon, so if you want them email Teresa, details are on here or the Store, and get yours reserved as these stamps are in demand.

I actually don't want to give this card away, lol. Lots of fabby details, I may have gone overboard with the embellishments, but I do love the end result, so there isn't anything that I would change.

The middle section is corrugated card stripped of the top layer and painted with some acrylic white paint. I added some lace and purple ric rac.

I have added two little charms a key with the word LOVE and the heart with the lock.

I have painted the heart swirl with a lilac acrylic paint and edged it with Tim Holtz Distress ink.

Ahhhh look at that incy wincy postcard. I had this sheet for a few years and I finally found a use for it. The double heart is again painted with acrylic paint and edged with Tim Holtz Distress ink.

A close up of the laserchip word LOVE that I have painted with lilac acrylic paint and edged again with distress ink.

An here's the inside.

And here's the happy couple.A full list of materials can be found on my blog.

Now I have another card that I haven't yet posted on here and again I love this image and I have certainly seen this image going around blogland on my travels, I can tell you. This is DUSK by Sara Burrier and is a digi availabe HERE.

Isn't she gorgeous!

And those cute little bunnies.

That's it for me today, be sure to pop back again tomorrow for some more inspiration. Have a good weekend.


  1. Looove both your cards! They looks sabsolutely amazing! Though you think you went overboard on the embellishing on the frst on, i really think that is just has to be that way.

It looks fabulous together with the image. Amazing Job, Tracy. Hugs...Mona
