Just Playin'

A couple of days ago my lovely friend Bev came round to play bringing with her the now coveted Fresh Vintage set - sadly it's no longer available and I will long lament the fact that I failed to obtain it when it was available!
Anyway I played with the stamps and have made a couple of cards - no sentiment on them as sometimes I need a sort of 'Just Because' kind of a card - take a look

I used some of my Everyday Enchantment DSP with this card and used it to mount my squares. The flower image was inked with individual markers before stamping and it was cut out and attached using 3D foam pads. The border images were off cuts from a card I made previously - I just couldn't bring myself to throw them out and the tiny flowers were also cut out by hand. I then added loads of bling.

This card was made using a technique demonstrated by the beautiful Mynnette HERE and again uses the Fresh Vintage set - this time just the flower image stamped in Poppy Parade ink. The stamps around the frame are from two sets - Flight of the Butterfly and Simply Said and I have stamped the flowers several times before re-inking.

That's it folks - pop back tomorrow when I will have not one but two Christmas cards for you and details of the 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown Challenge - see you soon - Jacqueline xx


  1. Two beautiful cards Jacqueline, I also wished I'd got that set!

  2. It is a gorgeous set isn't it and of course you've done the most amazing things with it! I love the grid layout on the top card and the aperture card is absolutely stunning! Vicky x

  3. LOVE these--and your stamped punch window looks so fabulous and spring like! Gorgeous colors--so sorry you didn't get this set! If I can get one for you here cheap from a friend, would you be interested in it?
