Vintage Fun!

Leave a comment

Hello fellow vintage fans!  Is there a chill in the air where you are?  Crunching leaves and pops of autumnal color?  If you answered yes you’re experiencing fall — the season some might argue is the best of them all!

I have a couple of cards to share with you — one that I made with Party Games and fun May Arts ribbon.  The second is a play on the popular mustache trend and Halloween!

Enjoy all things fall and Halloween if you dare — and check out all the festivity in the Vintage Street Market store!

In the spirit!

Happy fall, y’all!  Now that it’s here I’m finding myself digging out totes of decorations and making festive items.

The focus of this card is on the Vintage Street Market items, like my favorite Bingo Craft Cards and the patterned paper from the Family Fun paper kit! But the Making Memories alphabet stickers really give the card and interesting element!

Now, this one is mostly vintage fusion, using some of the Making Memories and Graphic 45 available in the store.  However, I did use some of the Soot Tinted Tape to make a circle accent — LOVE IT!

Hope your fall is cool, crisp and colorful!

Hello, friends!  As I embrace my card making I find myself excited to create new cards and push myself a bit.  This often results in me stepping outside of my box, including using die cuts and stamping in different ways than I have before.

I knew I wanted to include this sweet little dolly, that was easy.  It was using the negative from the die cut that was the part that I changed up a little!

The bingo cards are my go to, but stamping directly onto the vellum envelope was different, ordinarily I would stamp onto something else, trim it and then adhere it to the card.

How about you?  Have you tried stepping out of the box?  Are you interested in trying?  Show us what you’ve got!

Party games and celebrations!

If there are things I love it’s bright colors and parties!  Luckily for me there is the party games paper sheets and tags to use when getting all of my party needs ready!  They are so fun and easy to use not only for wrapping gifts, but also for making a card to go along with a gift!

Fun, right?!  It’s easy when you add a bingo craft card or a shipping tag and doily!  You can have fun and festive right at your finger tips!  Plus the sheets and tags are totally a bargain coming in under $10!  Inexpensive and fun — a winning combination!

Have a fantastic and fun weekend! —JennieRead the rest

Card fun with bingo craft cards!

Hello!

I don’t know about you but I love the bingo craft cards and easily use them on a ton of projects.  They are fun, versatile and add vintage whimsy.  I think they are easy to use on pages and cards, not to mention other altered projects!

I love to use the bingo craft cards on birthday cards in particular because of the correlation between the number on the cards and dates!  You could easily highlight an age or birthdate on the bingo card!

Another fun way to use the bingo craft cards is as a background instead of patterned paper!  I had lots of fun with a coordinated bingo card as the background of the Christmas card!  (I’ve been on a Christmas kick this week!)

How do you like to use the bingo craft cards in your designs?  I’d love to see!
