Vintage Jamboree!

I have three posts today, so if you are looking for the
or the Craft-e-Corner Craft Pink posts, please click the links.

Well, Blogger Peeps, this is my third post for today! WHEW! I don't like to have such a busy day on the blog, but sometimes that happens! This post contains a few more of the projects I made for Hampton Art Stamps and 7Gypsies. Enjoy!

Wrap burlap around the left edge of printed paper and secure it to the back of the paper. The burlap and the kraft paper give a rustic look to the card.

Spray a white paper flower with Crimson glimmer mist, then attach it to a brown velvet flower using a mini brad.

The second project is a very simple altered tray. The tray is 6x6 and can be oriented in any direction you choose.

I decided to create wall art with stamped images rather than add photos. This is a very quick and easy project and can be changed out with the seasons.

I love the little pops of red.

The last project is a card that I made with various stamps and inks. Using stamps, pigment ink,and embossing powder, I created a vintage look.

I created my own background paper by stamping a script stamp (Very Beautiful) with brown pigment ink. I stamped the image multiple times, then embossed with clear embossing powder. To create the grungy edge to the green panel I "smooshed" green pigment ink around the edges, then embossed with clear powder.

I made a custom button by stamping a plain cream button with the text image from the Very Beautiful set. Then, I embossed it with clear embossing powder.
