Week 200 - Vintage

Good Morning Crafters

Happy Easter!

I hope that everyone has started their Easter well - weather is a bit grim isn't it! but hope that you are going to be chilling out and enjoying your chocolate.

This week's Challenge has been set by our lovely Catherine and she has chosen 


For everyone that knows me well this is right up my street and could have put several projects in for this one but have decided to choice this one 

We made this card in a workshop last week which was also entitled Vintage projects.  The perfume bottles are decoupage sheets from the House of Zandra collection - I love Sandra's work especially the recent projects on Katy Sue's Shoe CD Rom. 
The paper is from a paper pad from Crafts Too and the script paper is from my stash.
I cut the bottles out and coloured them with Walnut Stain Distress ink and raised them onto the card layer which already had the punched detail on it.
The flourish dies are from Crafts Too and I cut these in a plain brown cardstock.
Some cream lace and masking tape finished the project off.
I hope that you approve! and this appeals to your vintage streak!

Pop over to the Allsorts Blog to have a peep at the other Design Teamies projects - they are fabulous as always.  
Thankyou too to our sponsor ~

Thankyou for popping by.  Much dash now I have (I think - waiting to hear from the studio to check if we have any stock left from yesterday!)  another Easter Giveaway Spellbinder show at 4pm.

I also have 2 shows tomorrow demonstrating product from Kanban.  I have been asked to guest this show for this Easter Giveaway event - if you are Kanban fans there is going to be some fabulous bargains to be had and as you know, I am sure, these are some of the last products that you will see available on C and C.

Tuesday I have a Crafty Notions show and this is at 2pm.
I hope that you can join me at some point.

Enjoy the rest of the Easter Weekend, take care if you still have snow and please make sure that you eat tons of chocolate tomorrow morning!!!

Thankyou as always for popping by and your comments are so appreciated.
Bye for now

  1. Good morning Jo. What an interesting card so thank you for the ideas. I enjoyed all the demos you did yesterday having bought all the Die D Lites when they first came out at Christmas in the big bundle. I haven't finished paying for them yet and they are on sale which is a bit annoying but never mind. I am looking forward to rest of your shows this weekend, so many strings to your bow with all the different ranges of products!! Happy Easter, regards Jackie D

  17. I tend not to create many comments, however i did a few searching
    and wound up here "Week 200 - Vintage". And I do have 2 questions for you if you usually do not mind.
    Could it be just me or does it give the impression
    like some of these responses come across like they are left by
    brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing on additional social sites, I would
    like to keep up with everything new you have to post.
