A Thank You Vintage Style

1 Comment | Leave a new comment

Hello there!  Amy here checking in again with a card featuring ephemera.  Our store offers many vintage items that you can find here.

My card combines new with old for a fresh thank you for someone dear.  All supplies are listed at bottom of post.

I made a banner with aqua twirly twine and then added lots of fun items for a layered effect.  I created the blue gingham pennant using the paper sheet from Sewing Room Kit.  I added a flashcard, punched the heart from vintage paper and added a bingo marker, cut a piece of film, layered some tickets,  and then embellished with a charm hanging from a garmet pin.

Thanks for looking and hope you are inspired. 🙂

Ephemera Journal Part II

1 Comment | Leave a new comment

Julie here again, with more of my ephemera journal to share with you–be warned–there’s LOTS of pages today!

With so many wonderful vintage papers & elements to work with, it was easy to go a little crazy making this little book of mine…

…page after page of vintage fabulousness to write and doodle on…

…or just leave as-is.  Maybe I’ll write on it later, maybe not.  It’s still fun!

As I said in my last post on my journal, I used ephemera from Vintage Street Market’s Ephemera kits, some of my own that I had on hand, and vintage images found online & printed out–these ladies are great favorites of mine!

Pockets and envelopes were fun to add onto pages…

…even an old manila tag with the string still attached worked it’s way onto one of the pages…

I hope you feel inspired to start a journal of your own–I can’t tell you how much fun you’ll have!

And once you start making your own art journals, you just may never be able to stop!

Thinking of you Always Card

Leave a comment

Hello everyone!  Heidi here today and I have a card to share with you using several of the products from Vintage Street Market.

The pattern paper is from Life’s Journey-Layered Script by K & Company.  I love the soft browns and ivory in this paper with the script print.  At the top I added a Vintage Carnival Ticket along with another vintage ticket.  Then I added the Attic Treasures Mini Flash Card.  I used 3D Form Squares on the back of the mini flash card to add a little dimension.

Next I added a handmade flower and a handmade stickpin.  I added a Light Blue Paper Rose to the center of the flower and then I added a little Diamond Stickles for some sparkle.  To finish off the card I added an aqua seam binding bow.

Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today!  Don’t forget to check out all of the wonderful vintage items in the Vintage Street Market store.

Hugs,

Heidi

Easter Wishes

1 Comment | Leave a new comment

Hey all!  Amy here and I am back as promised with an altered Easter project to share.  I started with a vintage ice cream cup and then began building.

I added tissue paper garland around the edges then layered tinsel garland with aqua Twirly Twine on top.  Next I used May Arts red twill stripes ribbon to make a bow and then added two paper flowers.    I added a vintage bingo marker for the center.

 

For the banner, I painted wooden skewers and attached handmade finials from beads.  I tied aqua Twirly Twine to the skewers and then added three red foil triangles from Party Games Paper Sheets and Tags.  Next, I punched holes in a fare ticket stub and added to the right skewer.  I then used a sticker sentiment backed on a Jillibean pattern paper.  I attached the skewers to the inside of the cup with tape.

I love the way it came out and especially like that it is not the traditional colors of Spring.  I challenged myself with that for a bit. Finally I filled my cup with a little Easter grass and a pale blue egg.  I think these cups are perfect for birthdays, other holidays, or even a special pick me up.  I hope this inspires you!

Bunnies and Bows

Leave a comment

Happy March to you!  I am delighted to share with you a new card I made featuring new items paired with a few pantry staples.

This card features a Bingo card and a few items from the new Retro Easter Kit.  I sewed a distressed floral pattern print paper to the front of a cream card base.  Next I cut out the adorable bunnies, added glitter glass to the edges, and popped up on the Bingo card with dimensionals.  I threaded the stripe ribbon through and made a bow accented with another bow from the pink Twirly Twine and a pink button from my collection.  I then tucked the vintage green ticket under to complete.
