Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps August Blog Hop


This month's Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Hop has the theme of "Vintage/Shabby Chic" and let me tell you this was very hard for me. I am a clean and simple card maker through and through. Thankfully I won a copy of the Paper Crafts Card Style magazine so I spent some time looking through the Shabby Chic section trying to find something that inspired me. Plus I had the added bonus that blogging pal Giesle sent me some fabulous WMS stamp to play with. To see some of the other fun cards for the blog hop, please click on the forum and check out the other links.

Materials: 3 different sheets of patterned paper from my stash, WMS frames and flower, Stampin Up ribbon (thanks Sylvia), Corner rounder punch, yellow markers, Versacolor yellow and brown ink, Stampin Up oval scallop punch, Fiskars rotary scallop cutter, Making Memory eyelet
