Hello Friend!

Hello TRC Friends!  All this month the design team has been showcasing stamp sets that are ON SALE on The Rubber Cafe' website.  These stamp sets are from some of the past Creative Cafe' kits.  So if you are a subscriber to the Creative Cafe' Kit club, you already have these wonderful stamps.  But if you don't have these stamp sets, now is the time to grab them for a great price.  You can check out all the stamp sets currently on sale HERE.

Today I have a card for a special friend using the Vintage Findings and Those Were Good Times stamp sets.  I love these two sets.  They call to the vintage, shabby chic in me!

To begin this card, I cut a piece of brown cardstock to 5 1/4 x 10 1/2" and scored it at 5 1/4" to create the base for this card.  The patterned paper is from the 6x6 Love & Lace Collection pad by Bo Bunny.  I stamped the cameo image onto some pink cardstock using Versamark ink.  I sprinkled on white embossing powder and heat set it then fussy cut it out.  I stamped the cameo again onto white cardstock using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink and cut just the woman's silhouette out.   I added a strip of the pink cardstock along the middle of the card and tied some seam binding ribbon into a bow around it.  Then I added a die and popped up my embossed cameo and the sentiment.  To complete the card, I added some pearls in all 4 corners.  Here is a close-up!

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you will check out all the great items on sale so you can pick up some bargains for yourself!
