Stamp Simply #123 - Very Vintage

Smiley from millan.net
Yay, it's Friday once again! And that means it's time for another Stamp Simply challenge from Sharon Johnson. This week, Sharon is challenging everyone to make something vintage. Some people can do that very easily, and for some that's a challenge. But hey, I think that's what this is called.... a CHALLENGE! LOL So c'mon and give it a whirl... whatever you interpret as vintage is fair game today, but remember to keep it simple, too.

Yeah, remember to keep it simple... which I did NOT! I failed at simple this week, but I still love my card, and I hope you do, too!

When I contemplated a vintage design this week, my first thought went to roses so I pulled out my neglected 3-Step Hearts and Roses set from Kitchen Sink Stamps for this card. I stamped my image, then cut it out using the Labels 1 Nestabilities die. My designer paper is an old piece of Melissa Frances paper that I've had forever. I stamped over it with the French Script background stamp from Rubbernecker, then distressed and inked the paper edges with tea dye Ranger distress ink.

Stop by Sharon's blog for all the challenge details! There you will find her stunning (as always!) sample, as well as Mr. Linky which you may use to link up your own vintage creation! My Stamp Simply sisters have some beautiful vintage designs to inspire you, as well!


So there you go.... now go get vintage and inky! And thanks so much for stopping by today!

I find it so interesting to see how everyone interprets "vintage" and what they reach for to create! I love your rose image and I wish I had that french script b/g stamp! That lends a perfect vintage look IMHO! Very pretty card!!
