Inspired By Stamping November Sneak Peeks - Just Because & Vintage Thread

This is one of two posts today!  Please click HERE for my tutorial, "Colleen's Bows."  Thanks!

Welcome to Day One of November sneak peeks at Inspired By Stamping!  The releases this month -- stamps and digital papers, too -- are all in a vintage style.  SO up my alley!  Today, we are featuring two sets:  Just Because & Vintage Thread.  (Links to new sets will work beginning November 10th, when they are available for purchase)

I'm sharing a card made with Vintage Thread...a really cool little set!


I started with a pale peachy pink cardstock base, and stamped a thread notion design all over it, adding a little 25 cent stamp (from the upcoming Garden Seeds Packet set) to each one.  Then I stamped the same image on pretty dotted patterned paper from the Vintage Digital Paper package with brown ink, trimmed and distressed the edges with kraft ink.  The other thread notion design is a solid stamp, so I used a creamy brown to stamp it on white.  That one got a bit of genuine vintage thread (!), a lovely pearl stick pin and a 25 cent stamp.

The Scallop Border Crochet Trim,  White Curly Flower, Tiny Green Leaves and  Pale Peach Two-Tone Flowers seemed perfect accessories on this card, don't you think?


Our team has created many beautiful things to share, too:
