Many Blessings

I hope you are enjoying a lovely weekend.  It's been beautiful here in Gainesville, Florida, cool nights and warm sunny days.  So I decided to build a spring card with a bit of grungy vintage look to it.  I'm in the groove with kraft and cardboard this week as it is on sale at The Funkie Junkie Boutique (still time to order before I have a 7-day closing from 4/29 to 5/8).  Since it's time for my weekly Artistic Outpost DT make, I focused on using Artistic Outpost stamps, combining Flower Market & Paris Exposition.  I wanted to it to have a shabby chic feel so I used the Pion Design Fairytale of Spring paper along with the distressed doily die and a bit of coffee stained Venise lace.  A couple of bronze filigree embellishments furthered the SC feeling.

Using a mini kraft sleeve, I stamped it with various stamps from the Flower Market plate, then cut three tags with the largest tag die on the Tiny Tags and Tabs die.  The tags were stamped using Jet Black archival and heavily sponged and distressed with Vintage Photo DI.  The small tags were stamped and sponged the same way, using a lighter application of Vintage Photo DI and all were strung together using Idea-ology Ball Chain.

And that wraps it up.   Maybe you could make a spring card with Artistic Outpost stamps and enter it into our April referral challenge.  The theme is Anything Goes and there are still a couple of days to play.

These items used to make this card are available at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

Stunning! So much to look at and admire, I totally adore all the little details, like those little tags strung onto the ball chain. SC style is one of my all time favourite styles, and with this gorgeous card you have it down to perfection!!
