This card uses all scraps from my stash. I love it when I can do that!! The fancy rectangles were cut using Spellbinders and the tea cups are from PTI. However, I did add a lacy border to the rim of the tea cup using the small rectangle frame. I simply cut the edge to fit the tea cups and added a single flower from the border punch, to the center of each of the tea cups.
A Kraft cardstock base and some scraps from my stash were used along with a flower border punch from Martha Stewart. I stamped the image using Fine Linen ink from PTI and then colored the bird with my copics. I used the copic black liner to do all the line work and accents to the bird. To the top right corner, I added a small green banner cut from scraps and added two prima flowers which I topped off with a little red bow. Thanks so much for looking! Blessings~ Birgit

The background paper is some I had in my scraps. I also used the same paper to cut the ice skates from using my cricut machine and Winter Woodland cartridge. I created the layered ice skates by cutting them out in black as well and layering the printed paper over the top. I added German silver glitter to the blades to make them shiny. The red banner is cut using a banner die from PTI onto more pp that was in my stash. The fancy square was cut using a spellbinders die onto some vintage advertising which I printed myself on my printer. The swirly flourish die is from MFT. After layering all my elements I added a pretty silver ribbon and bow. Notice the bow? I made it using a very large serving fork according to a video I watched on using a Zutter Bow-it-All tool, which I don't have. Not too bad for making do without one. This was a great card as I used only scraps to make it. I like it when I can do that! Thanks so much for looking! Blessings~ Birgit

On this one I used Greetings from Paris from Just Rite Stamps to create the vintagey post card. I made the center of the medallion using PTI's Delightful Doilies and added a couple of ribbon tails and button and twine to finish it off.
This next one was a little hard to photograph without a glare from the glass.
Thanks for visiting! Blessings~ Birgit

Colors~ Smokey Shadow (PTI), Basic Grey & So Saffron (SU!)
I punched the heart from a scrap from my stash and popped it up with a pop dot as well as on the small flower to give the card some dimension.

For this card, I used an image from Crafty Secrets from their Birds & Botanicals Images and Journal Notes, which I layered on some old music paper and a background of different pink printed papers. For the sunburst papers, I used PTI Hello Sunshine die cuts. I layered some rolled roses and a daisy, which I'm still learning to roll properly, onto a soft pastel vine of green leaves that was cut using the Leafy Flourish die from MFT. I added a sheer ribbon bow with a button and flower. Thanks for looking! Blessings~ Birgit
I fell in love with this paper from My Minds Eye and couldn't bring myself to cover it up too much. I added a framed sentiment from Crafty Secrets and added looped ribbons to the bottom of the frame. It seemed like it needed something in the lover left corner so I added some ruby gems. Thanks for looking! Blessings~ Birgit

On this card I used embossed paper from Doodlebug Design for the background and a paper doily. The postcard stamps are all from Greetings from Paris from Just Rite Stamps. The anniversary sentiment is from PTI, which I double stamped using Sweet Blush ink and again with black ink to give it a shadowed look. The stamped flourish image on the small heart is from MFT and the hearts are all cut using Spellbinders and embossed with sizzix embossing folders. The embossed flower image is one that I fussy cut from a vintage greeting card. The pink bow is done using baby pink seam binding from RRR. I added a vintage hat pin and some punched flowers with pearl bead centers. I used Sweet Blush, Berry Sorbet and Smokey Shadow inks from PTI and Tuxedo Black from Memento. Thanks for much for looking! Blessings~ Birgit
