You're Not Old...You're Vintage!



Just recently I received an order from Simon Says Stamp (an online craft supply company that I just love by the way:  Such a great selection, wonderful customer service, and affordable international shipping to boot.  Nice) and in it was this cling stamp I ordered from Art Declassified called Little Patriot.  I just love the look of this stamp and the company's design asthetic on the whole.  Plus, you know me...never pass up an opportunity to craft with a one-stamp-wonder if you can.  And throw in a tag for good measure and I am one crafty and oh so happy camper. Ah, the joys! The office supply store-bought swing tag was stamped with sentiments from a My Favorite Things stamp and die set which I seem to have momentarily mislaid. Eep! I think it is called something like Vintage Typewriter or Just Your Type or something.  The three distresseed stars are from Papertrey Ink's Est. 1776 stamp set, which I adore.  The dry embossed Nautical Star background was done with a provocraft folder.  And that's this card done.  Too easy!


Thanks a bucketful for stopping by.  Here's to a magnificent day!

I LOVE this! That postcard stamp is so great, and the sentiment on the tag is perfect for a "mature" birthday card. Very pretty layering and the embossed stars looks like it was made for the vintage postcard.

Jen, love this card and the sentiment is great!

I want to thank you for always leaving such nice feed back on my blog. I have come here several times to thank you, but for some reason I can never seem to get it to post... so I thought I would give it another try!

Great customer service, and affordable shipping...wow! Hard to find that these days ;)

I love the flags going with the star embossing and that one line in red. Such a fun fun card - for that perfect vintage person ;)

Love that green card you have down there too - didn't look like something of yours - it was so bright but I love all those die pieces on the flower...wowzers!

This is so shabby chic and fabulous! I thought of you over the weekend - how was the jewelry market? I hope you are home now resting and crafting. HUGS.
