So Vintage - Shabby Chic 81

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, August 17, 2010 @ 12:00 AM | , ,

Hi There! Here today for the Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps August Blog Waltz.This month Claire challenged us all to create a project based on a Vintage-Shabby Chic theme (as you probably have guessed this happens to be my fave :) For complete Waltz details please visit the The Play Room. Here is my Vintage-Shabby Chic card full of FRUIT:
Lovin' the new Spellbinders™ S4-297 Nested Crowns die templates, I made a crown frame to use as the focal point. Inside the crown frame, I stamped the arrow image from the Sweethearts set, adhered a decorative sanded foil heart made from a S4-296 Nested Hearts die template then popped a lil' Melissa Frances keyhole embellishment on top.

I love the shimmer & all the detail in that lil' heart - it seems to fit perfectly over that arrow!

To make this lil' tag, I stamped a few images from the Very Vintage Labels No. 4
set followed with stamping the "with love" sentiment from the Victorian Frippery set then, using a S4-190 Labels Four die template, I cut/embossed the tag.

That's all I have for today - off to waltz! Can't wait to see what you may have created for the Waltz :)

Thanks for looking! Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:

Waltzingmouse Stamps: Very Vintage Labels No. 4, Victorian Frippery, Sweethearts

Spellbinders™ Grand Nestabilities® LF-161 Grand Labels One, Nestabilities® S4-190 Labels Four, Shapeabilities® S4-297 Nested Crowns, S4-296 Nested Hearts, GC-001 Grand Calibur
