Since we where going "shabby" with this blog hop, I thought I'd go with a shabby layout.
I used the new Farm Chicks Clear Art Stamps and the new Farm Fresh Creative Scraps.
Loving "shabby"... roughed up , inked papers, lots of stitching, stamping , old photos and my favorite vintage images. ( oh.. and a little Glimmer Mist spattered on for good measure)
I adore this chicken wire stamp SO much!
I used my epiphany goodies to create a dimensional embellishment ..using one of the elements on the Creative Scraps sheet.
Okay.. so I couldnt quit with these new images. Here are some cards .. some shabby .. some not so much........but all using the same stamp set and creative scraps :)
The die cut shapes I used on these cards are from AccuCut.
I know , I know.. I can stop using that chicken wire stamp!
I even used it on the twill on the card below. lol
I couldnt resist using some brighter colors on these. I "dig" (lol) the vibrant colors of these vintage images.
Again... about this time of year.. color.. is definatly what I need!
I didnt even begin to use all the images on this sheet of Creative Scraps..there are so many. So plenty more for creating next week. ha One of the things I love about Crafty Secrets images is that they are so beautiful.. they almost stand alone. I can just dig around in my paper scraps and find colors I like with the image I'm working with and very quickly put together a simple but cute card.
Okay... and heres one of my very favorite images on this sheet. Oh.. it' just tickles me.
Hope you enjoyed a stroll through my projects today and travel on to the blogs below to see their beautfiul creations for this blog hop.
