Vintage Cards 2

Happy Thursday everyone!  Here is the other 3 cards
that i am doing for my class tonight.  I try and chose
lots of different colors so that we have fun using lots
of brands and styles each time.  I think my favorite paper
to use was the middle card which is from Authentique.
The papers are so high quality and have such cute tiny patterns
for card making.  And--- there is lots of stickers you can 
use too.  It's all so much fun and creating with my 
Spellbinders dies makes them come out that much better!

 On this card I use 3 different dies and layered them
and I think it works because the colors are super
subdued. The dies are Parisian Motifs, Scalloped Squares,
and Fleur de lis Squares... I stamped with coffee Archival
 ink for the Happy anniversary and added a flower and ribbon
edged in gold to antique it up a bit. I used thin foam
squares from Scrapbook Adhesives on all the cards 
between the layers to pop it out and give it more depth.

 I love the idea for this card and don't ever 
borrow from others but I had to redo this and
show the girls in the class how fun it is to
use flags on a card.  It's super easy and I just
added some layered Spellbinders tags and a ribbon.

Last card today is using some of the new Bo Bunny
Tea papers.  I love, love, love roses and the pretty 
pinks and peaches of this card are just gorgeous.
For this I layered the papers and added a ribbon and
made a medallion with 3 dies and stamped in the center
of the top one.  The ribbons are some of my favorite 
from Creative Impressions and I think I bought every
color they had just to have it on hand :)  Crazy me!!  

So....That's all for today to share.  I hope you
liked them and I always love comments...
it keeps the inspiration coming to make new things.

Thanks so much for dropping by,
