365 Cards Vintage Week Continues!

Vintage Week is wrapping up at 365 Cards! I am so happy Pam asked me to sponsor this week! I've missed playing along with the gals (and guys) at the 365 Challenge Blog! There are not enough hours in the day right now, and I do miss playing in challenges and chatting with my cyber peeps!

At any rate, I finished the week! Here are the last three cards! For Day 170, which was Vintage Plus Blue: I am not really sure this is vintage, but I had colored this stamp the other night and really wanted to use her for the blue day. I paired her with vintage prints and hope for the best!

I sponged some chalk ink around the image, and got a bit heavy-handed on the one pretend you don't notice! That fab-tastic border is made with the NEW Spellbinders Edgeabilities dies!

This cute stamp is from Penny Black. I have not purchased any Penny Black stamps in a long time and was really happy to find some cute ladies and children stamps recently!

For Day 172, which was Vintage Plus Green...I had some troubles. I told you the other day that green is NOT my "go to" color! But, using green and gray together worked out pretty well! (Did you notice: I decided to go with a "skinny girl dress" theme for today?!)

I stamped and fussy cut the dress, then added some shading with Copics.

I had some sparkly silver ribbon, just a tiny bit left over from another project...and it was perfect for this card!

For Day 173, we were to do Vintage Plus Yellow. Yellow is another color I almost never use. But this Authentique paper is so pretty that I grabbed it right away for this card!

The gray, black, kraft and yellow combo seems to work pretty well for a vintage card. Plus I stamped a ticket and cut it out. Nothing says vintage to me like tickets!

The flowers are from Prima, and I also found some yellow baker's twine in my stash the other day. Really Reasonable Ribbon has this really great assortment, so I snagged it a while back, and promptly forgot I had it. It's fun to shop your stash! Never know what you'll find!  Yum!

Remember: I am drawing a winner for the 365 Cards Vintage Week - for the prize shown HERE - later in the week. I want to give you all time to make a comment on the August 14-20 posts here on the blog. Also, to win the prize I've donated to 365 Cards, make sure you link up your cards to the BLOG.

  1. Well, well, well... It's been a (too) long time since I playes with you on Pam's challenges...
    I looked through your posts this weeks, and what can I say... Pure beauty, each one of your creations.
    But I did notice that you had to be a bit of a rebel, with the blue one.
    And yes, Pam sure didn't drink one of her special coffee drinks. The sketch is real nice.
    Off I go to try and make two more cards for this week (and I just might get my all-star badge!)
    You take care, dear G....

  2. I love your cards.
    they are absolutely beautiful.

  3. Your cards are all beautiful Gloria! Yellow is the color that I never seem to use but your Vintage Plus Yellow card is just GORGEOUS! I really must try it! Maybe the trick is in adding the gray, black and kraft...and your talent of course! lol Thank you for the inspiration!...Nancy :o)

  4. Beautiful creations. I like the yellow one best. Love the little ticket.

  5. All of your cards are gorgeous! I love the yellow, grey, black and Kraft combo! Never would have thought to put Kraft with Yellow.


  6. YAY, Gloria's back!! Well, at least playing with us at 365 Cards! Missed ya girlfriend! Thanks so much for sponsoring us this week and I love all your cards but that "modern" vintage + Blue card is simply gorgeous! Keep'em coming!

  7. I absolutely love the paper on your yellow card - so divine!! Love the black/kraft/one colour combo on cards. I'm just going to have to find some time to sit down and make at least ONE card this week! Love vintage :)

  8. All of your cards are awesome, Gloria, and even though I don't use yellow much either, I do like your yellow card the best. The color combo looks great and I love, love, love that image (plus the ticket, of course! lol) Thanks for the inspiration this week. I am definitely going to try to get some vintage cards in.
    Have a blessed and RESTFUL Sunday!

  9. Stunning as always Gloria! Love the dress image on the green card and all of the elements on the yellow one.

  10. These are beautiful! I really love the last, the black, kraft, and yellow gingham are beautiful together!

  11. Lovely cardst6 as 65
    always Gloria!
    Hm, my kitten got jealous when I looked at your cards, and got up on the computer and tried to get me to pet her instead of bragging about your cards.

    Hugs from Mamoth and miau from Ikaros

  12. I usually don't care for the colour gray in anything, so imagine my surprise when my favorite of the bunch was the yellow and gray one. Lovely, simply lovely !

  13. All three of these cards are beautiful!! You obviously have a great eye when it comes to vintage! Thank you so much for playing along with us this week for the challenges!!!
