Vintage Simply Stampin'

Good morning!

It time for another challenge over at Simply Stampin and as you can tell from my title this week is vintage week. When I think of vintage I always think of distressing, so I knew I wanted to do some distressing which in my case always involves my spritzer tool, I love the light speckled effect you get on the paper with this tool, so that's where I started.

This card will be my mum's birthday card, it's not her birthday until the end of the month, but she is a complete techno-phobe so I'm pretty safe putting this up now.

I used quite a lot of different stamp sets on this card, I wanted to make a vintage style post card for my topper, so I started with the post card stamp from my christmas Winter Post set (love this stamp set so much!!) and added the sentiment meant for mothers day from my Delightful Dozen set, it may be for mothers day but works perfectly for my mum's birthday card!

Next I pulled out my mum's fav stamp set of all Baroque Motifs, she loves the swirl so I wanted to use that along with the the small flower from the same set. I also used the ink splatter from the French Foliage set another go to stamp for a vintage card.

I'd love to see what you come up with for this weeks challenge,
Happy stampin'

I love the baroque details around the side of the post card. The distressed piece behind is really nice too. Makes me want to go and crumple up some paper now! :P xx

I love it! I keep thinking I should invest in the Baroque Motif set, you're not helping with your enabling! :)

I really like these colours and the distressing (I'm a fan as you know!) Your mum is going to love this and I hope she has a wonderful birthday :)

Oooh Kelly, you've done a marvellous job on your Mum's card - she'll be thrilled to bits I'm sure! I love your postcard idea! Great job on mixing lots of stamps and yet still having a unified look to the card - fabulous!
