Shopping Our Stash Challenge 17 Vintage or Distressed or Shabby Chic Meets my first Stampin Up club card!


Hey everyone! This week at SOS we are asking you to create something vintage, shabby chic, or distressed! I had all these plans of doing some big ode to Tim Holtz project but life and work and all got in the way of crafting...but it gave me the chance to repair the card I made at my first SU stamp club class last week... It's pretty much the same as it was except I had to cut the base off as I glued it on crookedly and it bugged me. So I added some Distress Ink in Walnut Stain around the edges over the More Mustard and then distressed the long edges. Then I used some homemade glimmer mist and spritzed it all... it looks cool in real life!

The paper and layers are all SU and the base was Kraft from Gina K- and the button and sentiment and leaves etc are all in the new SU mini! Thanks to Kristyne for the wonderful instruction!

So I hope to see your creations this week at SOS!

I love the colours & look of this card! The leaves are awesome, are they a die cut or are they stamped & cut out? Great distressing too!

Beautiful card...love how you've echo'd the focus leaf images with the shadowed stamps on the background. It all comes together so prettily. TFS xoxo
