Classic clean and simple Vintage

There is something to be said for clean and simple cards. I love lace, doilies, ribbons, pearls in fact anything vintage. My normal style is to put lots of texture into any project so it is good every now and then to try something different. As promised on my Facebook page here is today’s card.



As a child I always loved paper dolls. So it is no surprise that I love playing with the Dress Up Framelits dies. Using the Big Shot and the Primrose Petals Core’dinations card stock I cut out the dress. I then stamped it with the Illuminate glimmer watermark Stampin’ Pad  using the Delicate Doilies stamp set. Some Pearl basic jewels, hand dyed Crumb Cake stitched grosgrain ribbon and Flower Trim complete the look! Again using the Dress Up Framelits dies I cut out the dress stand to place the dress on. I also sponged it a little to make the neck stand out. I sat this onto of the large doily from the Delicate Doilies Sizzlits die. I really love the effect. Using the Stripes embossing folder I made the timber panel for the wall. The sentiment is from the Loving Thoughts stamp set.


It was a simple and quick card to make and a lot of fun. I hope you like the card and as always if you have any questions or would like to say anything please leave a comment. I love hearing from you!


As mentioned in a previous post it is the 25th anniversary year for Stampin’ Up! There are lots of special promotions during the year. Keep an eye on the Stampin’ Up! website for more information.

I thought you may also like to see a little history and the journey taken by Stampin’ Up! over the past 25 years. It is amazing what has been achieved by two sisters who just loved to create and share that love with others. I really enjoyed reading this page as it just goes to show how one little idea can bloom if you step outside your comfort zone and just go for it!

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you are feeling inspired to get out your paper and ink and start making something.

Happy Creating!
