Just a Note

Hello my friends! This week I'm feeling a little mojo challenged, but, lucky for me, I have a few cards that I haven't shared with you yet. Here's one I made last month for Purple Onion Designs.

I'm not really a shabby gal, but I do enjoy making a soft and (kinda) vintage card every once in awhile. The stamps are what really inspire me, and this Late 1800s Script Background is very versatile and can be used in so many ways. I love adding the filigree around the edges, another one of my favorite POD stamps. For the sentiment, I layered a few simple shapes to make it really pop. The ribbon was adhered to the card and "scrunched" along the way to give it a messy gathered look:


I hope to get back into my craft room soon this week. I have some brand new stamps that need to be inked up, but I'm just not feeling it lately. We've had some unseasonably cool weather (and even rain!) and I think it's put me into a little bit of a funk. I don't mind cool weather, but I think it tricked my body clock into thinking I need to nap and nest. But the weather is suppose to warm up each day this week and will be in the 90s by the weekend! I'll be sweating soon!





Stamps: Late 1800s Script Background, Filigree Corner, Vintage Butterfly Set (POD)
Paper: Vintage Cream, Kraft (PTI)
Ink: Sweet Blush, Dark Chocolate, Vintage Touch Chai & Chamomile (PTI), Antique Linen (Ranger)
Other: Sweet Blush swiss dot ribbon (PTI), Tea for Two die (PTI), circle punch
