Vintage Vogue

Well, did you enjoy the Blog Tour?  Aren't those some TALENTED ladies?  I'm so blessed to be part of the Control Freak Swappers, I get such great swaps each time.  They are big…usuallly 30 or more, but well worth the extra effort!

 

I thought I'd bring out Vintage Vogue again dressed in some SPRING colors!  I'm really wishing it here, aren't I?  We are supposed to get MORE snow again tomorrow…luckily just an inch or so.

 

This actually is the same layout that the Bloggers Challenge used last Friday, I just switched a couple things around.  I started with a base of Old Olive cardstock.  Then layered on the Sweet Pea Designer Paper.  I used the Scallop Border Trim Punch on some So Saffron, then wrapped my White Satin Ribbon around the center and added some "bows" and the Pretty in Pink Epoxy Brads on them!  I like how that really dressed up the bows!

 

I stamped the F from Stampin' Up's Vintage Vogue in Old Olive on Whisper White and punched with the 1 3/4 circle punch, highlighted the Friends in So Saffron Stampin' Write Marker.  I stamped the small flower three times with So Saffron on Whisper White and cut them out, along with some Old Olive leaves.  Finally, I used the Eggcellent Egg Kit rhinestones and made a circle of them in each center of the flowers!  VERY sparkly in real life!

 

Hope you have a great day.  I'm hoping to get a lot of stamping done for the next couple weeks!  The ideas are there (luckily), just need to get them down on paper!

 

It's not too late to get my Satin Ribbon Shares.  I INCLUDE the Whisper White in my shares, so you get 10 different colors!  Click HERE for more information!
