FMU70- Stick Pins and Vintage

I'm excited to host my first challenge over at The Friday Mashup! This week's photo shows off something I love to use- Stick Pins! And, I also chose to go with a "vintage" style challenge because this is my weakness! I need to be pushed in this area! I think I did pretty well stepping out of my box this week!

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge:
  1. Make a project with a "Stick Pin on it."
  2. Or Make a "Vintage" project.
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Vintage project with a Stick Pin on it."



I am so excited about my card this week! this stamp set was what I received from the Prize Patrol on the last day of convention! It's definitely not my kind of stamp set, and if I hadn't seen Carrie Cudney demo it, i wouldn't have probably even opened it. But, now, I want to use it every day! It's a two step stamp set which means you stamp the base and then stamp the lines on top (using the Stamp a Majig).
I feel like it really creates an amazing image. It looks like something printed already. Nope, just me and my ink! :-) You've got to give this set a try!
And, I think this is a great set to create a vintage feel! I added a now retired hat pin to the bow and glued on a Vintage Faceted Button. Perfection! ;-)
Stamps: Stippled Blossoms, Delicate Doilies
Ink and Paper: Calypso Coral, Soft Suede, Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Comfort Cafe DSP, World Spectacular
Other: Big Shot, 3 1/2" Circle Die,Large Scallop Circle Die, Finishing Touches Edgelet, Calypso Coral Ruffled Ribbon, Hat Pin, Vintage Faceted Buttons, 2 1/2" Circle Punch, Stampamajig

I hope you'll join us this week for my first challenge with The Friday Mash Up!

I also used these two challenges to create my card:

  2. I got this set too from Prize Patrol and probably wouldn't have used it either, had I not seen Carrie demo it. Vintage style is my weakness too! Great card.
