A Vintage Week @ 365 Cards - I

Vintage week @ 365 cards!!! What can be better than that? almost nothing.. So naturally I couldn't resist and I took a little break from making layouts and joined the fun making some vintage cards. So much inspiration at 365 cards!!! and a chance to win a very yummy prize.

The first card was made to the sketch Pam gave:

The image is from The Vintage Moth; dp 7 Gypsies; flower,doily, ribbon,  lace & button - all from my stash. I used distress ink the dp edges and on the doily.
Having snow on the image, this card goes also for simon says stamp;  and buttons & bows - meljensdesigns; fff

The 2nd card is for day 269 - vintage plus distressing (as if I can skip distressing anyway... LOL that's my no. 1 fav technique):

For this card I used the sketch from Sketches In Thyme (okay, I'm on the layout team, but I can still make a card or two, don't I?). Here's the sketch:

I distressed the edges of almost every cs & dp on this card and inked them with distress ink. The image is from The Graphics Fairy; cs - Canson; ribbons & flower - from my stash; bling - selfmade.

The 3rd card was made for day 270 - vintage plus dimensional sticker:

I did it also for CASE study #16.

Just incase you didn't see how much dimensinal is that sticker, here's a close-up:

And did you see that awesome button??? This peachy one was the last one on the store, so it was a shame to leave him all alone there... LOL I wish they had more of this color. Here's a close-up on the button:

And I do hope my friends, Rose Miller & Gloria Stengel, would say something about that bow... wink wink....
I know this card can also go for the distressing one, but Pam doesn't allow to combine days, this time, and I'm playing by the rules... (and I just wait for tomorrow, cause tomorrow's challenge is to combine all this week's requirements nto one card. Now that's a challenge I love!).
also for:
buttons & bows - fff; meljensdesigns

The 4th card is for day 268 - vintage plus a stamp:

For this card I used the sketch from CardPatterns:

I tried to make a male vintage card (I know, flower and lace aren't exactly boyish, but it was done for a new baby, so it's okay...). I love this baby stamp from Layers of Colors.
It was great to fill my cards box again, and I just might end up making a few more, so please come back tomorrow...

And two more things:
First is just a reminder that you've got 3 days to enter our fabulous sketch challenge over Frosted designs.
And second - don't forget to mark your calendar Dec. 3rd for our first blog hop at Frosted Designs!

Thank you for stopping by!

מיקבץ כרטיסי וינטאג' שהכנתי בהשראת הבלוג 365cards, שהקדיש את השבוע הזה לוינטאג'. זו הייתה הפוגה מהכנת דפי אלבום, וכך התאפשר לי להעשיר קצת מחדש את קופסת הכרטיסים הדי מתרוקנת שלי.

תודה על תשומת הלב!
