Flirty and oh so Vintage!









Hello and happy thursday!  I am back today to share two cards both using one stamp but in two diffrent ways.   It is the ohhhhh so vintagey Be Stylish.    Ok I know I said that the mini jar set was my fave...but I think this is my new fave.   Soo fun and dare I say flirty!  Each card started with good ole cardstock that I adhered my fun papers too using some One and ONly tape ....the first is done in a nuetral creamy pallette..I adhered a paper diecut frame with my  Scrap Happy glue .  I stamped the corsette onto plain rustic cream cardstock and fussy cut it out...than inked the edges.   I used foam adhesive to give it some depth from behind and than adhered it overlapping the frame a bit.   I added some fun crochet lace from Really Reasonable Ribbon to the bottom portion of the corset.  I also added a bit of charm using the jellie dots in the pearl finish.  Other than that a few old buttons and some satin ribbon with a sweet homemade posy nestled in the middle.   Now the inside is where I put the fun sentiment...it is fun to add a bit of a surprise to the inside.   I added a heart and a mini tea stained posy that matches the one on the front.  

The second card I stamped the corset onto pattern paper and again cut it out and inked it.   I added more gorgeous jellie dots in cotton candy..they are a natural for an image like this.   This time I wanted a skirt and added some fun chiffon trim to the bottom portion.  Other than that....some ribbons and a little rose and I was done!  

I love how they both turned out...both with their own personalities. Hope you enjoy and thanks for letting me share!

Cherry, both cards are just uber gorgeous! Love the G45 paper on the first one, looks so good with the crochet lace, and the 2nd one is so very feminine with that yummy fabric you used for the skirting!
