Vintage + Lace = Bliss

The vintage style stamps that are so popular right now are lovely to work with and can be used to make some gorgeously feminine projects.

I've been having a play with the SAB set, Bliss, and I came up with a boxed set of cards for my Lana ladies to make in class next week. I used one of my all time fav colour combos - Perfect Plum and So Saffron - and teamed them up with Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla. For a closer look, just click on the photo.

Whole set:

Crochet trim lace and pearls are the perfect embellishments to give your vintage cards an olde worlde charm. Some of my ladies are not too keen on tearing though, so this will be a real challenge for them, LOL! Sorry girls!

I am entering this project in the So Shelli Creative Challenge, which is to use items from the SAB catalogue.  Hope you like them.

Thanks for stopping by.

Absolutely Beautiful set, love the colours and stamps used. The white or vanilla plaque with greetings on them what are they from, it is a great shape and compliments your designs perfectly. You have done a great job on your blog.
