Loving the Vintage Vogue


Well, I'm back from visiting the grandchildren. It's a seven hour trip - with nothing between here and there - and is just grueling! But it was worth it since I got to see everyone. Now that I'm back, I'm hoping to get a little stamping done.

Yes, I'm LOVING the Vintage Vogue set from SU (the images used on this card). What a wonderful stamp set. I used Not Quite Navy, Blue Bayou, So Saffron, Vanilla, and Not Quite Navy DP. Ink used was Not Quite Navy and Sunflower (CTMH). For accessories, I used So Saffron ribbon, dimensionals, pearls, markers, clear embossing powder, and Swiss Dots embossing folder. I used the "masking" technique on the vines and the letter "F". I'm not sure where the layout came from but I like it alot.

Thanks for stopping by.................

It is a gorgeous card and I have just acquired this stamp set so may crib your layout if that is ok? A 7 hours trip to see the family what a long journey - I am very lucky that mine live close by. Cameron came for the day today and poor little mite has Chickenpox - best wishes Lesley x

Lynn, this is gorgeous. I love the color combination and your use of the elements of Vintage Vogue is fabulous. Your weekend with the grandchildren must have been very inspiring... or maybe it was all that time in the car to think about what you were going to create... either way... it paid off!

I think your layout is fabulous. I really like the placement of the cut out flowers and the ribbon. And that color combo.... love it! Even though it is a vintage style stamp set, this really has a contemporary look.
