TCM: Vintage Baby

Wednesday, July 17, 2013

Welcome back to day two of The Craft's Meow's July Release!  Today we're showing off one more of this month's five, new stamp sets.  It's known as Vintage Baby and comes from Nina B. Designs.
I started this card by piecing the pink floral, purple polka dot, and blue floral, patterned papers together on a piece of Ballet Slippers cardstock.  The purple, polka dot paper had also been die-cut with "joy", which was, in turn, embellished with a crystal button, laced with hemp twine.
I then machine stitched, with white-threaded, zig-zag stitches, between the two floral papers, before trimming the left side of the purple, polka dot paper with a die-cut, vellum scallop and returning to my sewing machine for white-threaded, straight stitches to ground it, as well as to frame the entire piece.  The tag was stamped, in Baked Brown Sugar ink, on White cardstock; hand cut out; ink distressed; had its heart colored in with a little Bashful Blue ink, as well as glittered; was adhered, in its respective position, with foam tape; and grounded with a soft blue button, laced with hemp twine.
It was then dressed up with a bit of lace, tied in a bow; a soft blue, gingham ribbon, tied in a bow; and a pink button, laced with a hemp twine bow.
Finally, a stamped, in Bashful Blue ink, on White cardstock, "A LITTLE SOMETHING FOR your little someone", hand-cut tag was then laced with hemp twine and tucked into that yummy mess of trims to complete the look.
Further inspiration for this card came from The Ribbon Reel's Challenge  #57: Picnics.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Don't forget to leave a comment on the TCM Store Blog, by 8 pm PST tomorrow, for your chance to win today's stamp set.  Then, I'll be back tomorrow to not only show off a new set, designed by the talented Karen Baker, but also to reveal a brand spankin' new sketch from Sketches in Thyme, as well as to share a page I've cooked up for my guest design spot at Life. Paper. Scrapbook.  Until then, have a beautiful day, friends!
