Shabby Chic two ways

It’s funny…as much as I’m not a “Brights” kind of person, I’m not really a Shabby Chic girl either.  I like elements of the look, but the rough, unfinished edges look kind of, well, unfinished to me.  I’m an organizer at heart, so unfinished makes me a little uneasy.  Here’s as close as I get to Shabby Chic:

Vintage Bliss

  • Bliss (SAB) stamp set
  • Very Vanilla, Baja Breeze and Rose Red card stock
  • First Edition Specialty and Springtime Vintage Designer Series Papers
  • Baja Breeze and Pear Pizazz Classic ink pads
  • Blender pen and Rose Red Stampin’ Write marker
  • Springtime Vintage Designer Buttons
  • Vintage Lace and Linen Thread
  • Big Shot and Tasteful Trim Bigz XL die
  • Log Cabin Smooch Spritz

The Vintage Suite products from the Occasions mini are a perfect compliment to the Bliss stamp set – and you would love that “Bliss” image if you could see it.    I must have been in la la land when I put that  button on the front of this card!  I made a second card, changed up the colors, and flipped the papers just because I could:

Vintage Newlyweds

I used a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes for this card, and squeezed in the script words from Charming with some Soft Suede ink, but best of all I didn’t cover up the sentiment with the doggone button!  Sometimes I amaze myself.
