June Guest Designer - Penny Ward "Vintage or Not...."

Today Penny Ward is back to share with us her 2nd and final project for us this month as our Guest Designer, here at The Rubber Cafe'.  We've so enjoyed having her - and I know you're going to be as excited as I am to see what she has in store for us today!  Take it away Penny-

Hello friends…..Penny here again today for my last post as a guest designer. I have had so much fun playing with The Rubber Cafe' stamps.

Today I have a tag and a card for you. I wanted something vintage looking and something modern from the same stamp set.
thanks tag

I love how this tag turned out. The background was stamped with the receipt stamp, then I masked off all but a small sentiment on the larger stamp in the Vintage Treasures set.

I am really kind of liking this sentiment that I stamped and heat embossed on the tag after inking it with distress inks. I inked and fussy cut the clock and the butterfly both from the Vintage Treasures set.  The “Thanks” sentiment from the Fabulous Phrases set was stamped, then die cut and adhered to tag over the lace.

Did I happen to mention how much I love this Vintage Treasures stamp set?!?

Next I made a card with bright colors and a fun fold.

Bright Blue, Lime Green and Yellow making this card appropriate for a man or a woman.
To make a similar card, you want to cut a card base 7 1/2 x 5 inches. Score halfway on the long edge. Cut a strip of card stock at about 1 1/2 by 4 inches.

Adhere a small section of this strip to back of card so about 2 1/2 inches fold to the front of the card.I embellished with another butterfly, flower, button etc, this time using the Small Swirled Butterfly. so the strip can be tucked just enough to keep the card closed. Attach all of this to a piece of card stock that measures the standard 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch size.

Decorate along the way as desired here in my close-up you can see I added round stick pins for my Butterfly Antenae and accents of faux pearls to give some added dimension.

Thank you so much for letting me share a little of my card making with you. I hope you return to this blog often for more creative inspiration. I also would like to invite you to my personal blog by clicking here.

Thank you to The Rubber Cafe' team…I had a blast.
Many Hugs….Penny
