Vintage Kindness

I love the vintage look, but I don't actually have very many items of the vintage variety. But, I was inspired to make do with what I had on hand. This is the result:
The card base is Crumb Cake (which I adore). The next layer is Very Vanilla. I stamped the flourish from Baroque Motifs, first lightly in Crumb Cake, then with Marina Mist. The flowers were stamped in Blushing Bride and the flower centers are self adhesive rhinestones. I would have preferred pearls. but I haven't purchased any of those yet. The pink strip on the left is punched with the eyelet border and the sentiment is punched with the oval punches. The ribbon is retired SU! stock I still had on hand: Ivory Organdy Ribbon. Once I tied a square knot, I used my embossing gun to melt the ends a bit for more of a vintage look.

Don't forget to sign up for my stamp camp. coming up in December!

Join Me For Stamp Camp in December!

Aren't home made gift the best to give and receive? I know I love to get a gift that is hand made. I know that the giver has taken the time to think of me and spend some of their precious time to make something just for me. And I also love to give a gift that I have labored over. I love the see the recipient open their gift. It is always obvious that people are touched when they see it.
To help you prepare for the Christmas Season I have four projects for you to make at my upcoming Stamp Camp on December 4th, 2010. I have prepared these beautiful, one of a kind gifts for you with gift giving in mind. Take a look at the photos below and then the registration information at the bottom of the post.

Ceramic Plate and Mug: beautifully and simply decorated with Stampin' Up!'s Definitely Decorative Vinyl. You can give these items together or separately. You will find out just how easy it is to work with the high quality vinyl that Stampin' Up! has to offer.
Album in a Jar: This a creative way to share some photos of your kids with Grandma and Grandpa, or make an album just for your special someone. The album consists of circles that can display photos, journaling and embellishments.
An open view of the Album in a Jar.
3x3 Note Card Set with Tote: Isn't this adorable? The tote holds four different 3" x3" note cards and includes envelopes. What a great gift for a teacher or friend.

Gift Card Holders: A set of 3 gift card holders. These adorable cards have a clever opening on the inside of the card for you to give the gift card of your choosing (not included) : ) This assortment of three will help you cover those many quick gifts we end up giving each year. Mine will probably go to the teenagers in the family... they are so hard to buy for!
