Happy Little Stampers CASE The Designer Challenge ~ October

Hello friends~  It's my turn to challenge you in the Happy Little Stampers CASE The Designer challenge.

My card:

I have a soft spot for vintage and kind of thought this looked a bit vintage-y and collage-y.  Yes, those are real words in my dictionary.  ;0)

I started by cutting a stitched rectangle panel out of Rustic cream card stock and stamping over it with a script background stamp from PTI and then added a light touch of distress ink around the edges to give it some age.  I then stamped the flowers to look like vintage roses from PTI's Bitty Bouquets, but stamped them off once onto scrap paper to soften the colors.
I then cut a Spellbinders lattice panel and a frame using Simon Says Stamp Frame dies and adhered them together.  The bird and branch are from PTI's Spring Woods.  I wanted the bird to really stand out so he's stamped in very bright and vivid colors by stamping with the MISTI by sponging the color on and allowing them to blend on their own.  The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed in white on a double ended fishtail banner from MFT's Blueprints #13.  

I hope you'll join in on the fun this month at the Happy Little Stampers CASE the Designer challenge.
I look forward to seeing your creations!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit

  12. I thought I had already been by to tell you how pretty this card is and how much I enjoyed creating something inspired by it. Please excuse my tardiness. I loved this card from the moment I saw it on the DT blog. It incorporates so many elements that I think of as your unique style--especially the vintage-y and collage-y ness of it all. Yes, I use the same dictionary as you. I only hope I did justice to your beautiful creation.
