Vintage? Addicting?

Hello there!!!

I have been kind of trying out a different style and I must admit I am kind of loving it! Vintage has never really been my thing but it has been fun to mess around with some ideas.

I had to make a guy card and decided that distressing and inking really make it a whole lot easier to create manly cards. It gives it a more grungy look! I really love the way this turned out and I hope you guys like it too!

For the background on the note card I used different words from one of the Pink By Design Stamps! Do you love it? It took forever to line them up on a clear block but it was totally worth it!

I was thinking of maybe doing a giveaway!!! Leave me a comment letting me know what craft item or style are you loving right now and you could with a Pink By Design Stamp of your choice!!! Looking forward to hearing from you guys and just know I love you all!!!!

Hi Momo, great card...right now, I love whimsical, cute and cuddly. All about fun and cheery pattern papers too. ~Shen

Great card. You totally "manned" it up. Right now I'm loving cards with pockets to slip in a tag either stamped or with a little gift attatched. July is a busy birthday month for me so I need something quick that does double duty.

Hi Momo!

Not enough time in the day to make everything i want to try.

your a great inspiration!!!!

I've been loving stamping lately. I have a lot of stamps but many of them haven't been used...SO I decided to get them out and play. I love your card :)

Super man card! I am totally into using the Tim Holtz distress inks! They can really change the way a project looks!

Monique Leslie The Misfit Crafter said...

Oh don't you just love the distressing. I love it. I have a hard time trying not to distress stuff. I have been better at using bright and cheery. But vintage can also be bright and cheery.
The card looks great. You will be addicted.

Diane's Place said...

I think your card turned out excellent. I can deal with distressing, but I have a hard time time vintage, steampunk, and the one with all of the flowers...can't remember what they call it. I am more of a KISS...you know clean and simple. I think my mother may have dropped me on my head a few times. Glad to see you are posting projects again. You are truly missed, and I love ALL of the projects you have done!

Your card looks great! I'm new to card-making so I haven't experimented too much...but lately I find that I really like using little rhinestones or "bling". It just adds a little wow factor to any card.

Trina said...

Nice card. I like the vintage look but I have recently started crafting and have not set on a style. I do try to keep it simple though.

Suzy said...

Great card!! I love all the stamps you used. One craft item I'm using more is TWINE! Love it on layouts. thanks for the chance to win. :)

Love your card! The background is just great! I have been using a lot of buttons lately on my cards. Seems like I cannot make a card without adding a button somewhere on it! :-)

Courtney said...

Great idea with using the stamps! I'm starting to get into using glimmer mist- It gives everything such a sparkly shine! So happy you are posting again :) You are such a great inspiration!

Love the card Momo, right now I am trying to get caught up on my scrapbooking, and I am trying new layouts, trying new ways of croping photos. I went to the library & got ideas from some books! Thanks for the chance to win!

This card is great! I agree it was well worth the time :) My favourite tings to do craft wise right now is to make my own embellishments. I have discovered that I can make almost anything at a faction of the price and have a ton of fun while doing it!

I love your manly card. My hubby loves photography and I know he would like your card.

Right now (like this week) I am designing and starting to make 12 sets of calendars. Each month has a different layered theme. These will be Christmas presents. I sold one extra set I had last year for $120 NOT BAD. This year the lady says that she wants two sets.

I love making flowers that look real.

CyndiU said...

So good to see you posting more. Love the card,it is differant from your usual style, but I like it. Great guy card.

As for style, I don't have one yet. Just got an E2 and am loving it. Since the move I haven't had much time to really get back into the swing, but am trying to do a little every day.

I want to try paper piecing and want to find out about SVG files and SureCutsAlot.

Thanks for the chance to win some cool stamps. I haven't bought stamps in a long, long time.

Hugs, CyndiU

Momo - that's a great card! I didn't think I had a style, but I just created a minibook for my friend, and I naturally gravitated toward vintage - shabby. Who knew? Lots of inking, distressing, and lacey type embellishments. Hmmm...

Ruby said...

Hi Momo! My favorite item is my Cricut. Have a blessed day!

Frank-LEE Speaking... said...

Wow, A Manly Vintage Card. This turned out GREAT! I'm loving playing with my inks doing various inking techniques lately cominded with embossing. Smooches... Felicia

McEwens said...

I'm really loving the 4 x 4 square card style right now. I'm also exploring more into Digi stamps. The tricky part is coloring them just right. And that's another thing that I'm really into is chalk colored pencils.Thanks for the opportunity to win a giveaway.
