An Itty Bitty Sneaky Peeky


Hello and welcome to my weekly Our Creative Corner post.  This week, Vicki Burdick is our hostess and she has challenged us to make a shape card - anything but a square or a rectangle.  Well, I guess I didn't read the challenge guidelines very well because mine is basically a rectangle.  I cut it with the SU Top Note die so it is a little shapely, but not very creative.  It's a very small card for me as I am used to working with 5.5x5.5" cards.  The base is SU's Confetti Cream and I stamped it with the gingham stamp from the Wendy Vecchi Nature's Art set in Aged Mahogany ink.  The second layer was stamped with SU's Elements of Style stamp and then the script stamp from Wendy Vecchni's A Form of Art set, both with Aged Mahogany ink.  The chipboard heart was stamped in the same ink with the Elements of Style set and the Tim Holtz music stamp with Vintage Photo.  

Now here's the sneaky peeky stuff - many of these sweet vintage elements will be in the Vintage Valentine's Day kit I am creating, including:  a gold doily, a set of 3 of the embellished chipboard hearts - this one and two smaller ones, a hand-dyed tri-bud applique, hand dyed seam binding and a handmade felt rose.  And those are just a few of the items that will be in the kit.  This one is totally loaded with vintage yumminess!!  I will have it up for sale on this blog by the end of the weekend.  I am initially making 20 kits and they will be sold first-come, first-served.  You can email me at thefunkiejunkie@gmail.com if you are interested.  I don't have the final price yet, but it will be between $30 and $35 USD.  Even if you are not a big fan of Valentine's Day cards, you will find so many wonderful vintage-style elements that can be used throughout the year.  

I have to tell you, my teamies on the design team for Our Creative Corner really ROCKED the shape challenge.  Be sure to stop by and see the very cool shapely cards they have to share.   Thanks so much for stopping by today and for your lovely comments.  Have a great weekend!

OH MY Linda, this is soooooo pretty, love the gold doily!!!

Beverly Gotthardt said...

It looks pretty shapealicious to me.

Sue said...

A rectangle is a four sided shape with every angle a right angle, a shape other than that has less well-defined edges, I think you qualify Linda.
The card is a real beauty and it has beautiful elements, all well placed to be very pleasing to the eye, good form in other words. You make delightful cards.
Smiles:)
