Vintage Stamping Challenge- Anything but a card!

Well Hello!
Happy Monday....  I have an announcement today!
I have joined up with the ladies on the Vintage Stamping Challenge!!  You know how I love vintage!!  The team works with stamps by the Flonz Craft!  Flonz has a fantastic assortment of vintage themed clear stamps!! ---Fashion, Gibson Girls, cars, children, etc....

 Each monthly challenge is sponsored by Flonz Craft with a $20 gift certificate.

The current Vintage Stamping Challenge #26 theme is:

Anything but a Card

Make any project -except a card-- using stamping (does not have to be vintage)

For my first Design Team project, I used one on the Gibson Girl images (love them!!)

Materials List:
CS: white
Ink: Gray Flannel Memento; Mulled Lavender Distress ink
Copic Markers
Dot Stencil- Stampin' Up
Small Pearls
Hole punch


  • Cut a tag from White CS
  • Stamp Gibson Girl with Gray Flannel ink
  • Color the image with Copic Markers
  • Place the stencil over the tag; using a sponge apply Milled Lavender ink to the tag
  • Remove stencil
  • Stamp the Sentiment
  • Distress the edges of the tag with Milled Lavender

  • Punch hole in side of tag 
  • Push ribbon through hole and tie in a big bow
  • Add a piece of white lace to the left side of the tag
  • Add pearls to the background

This will be great on a gift bag.  And, with a matching card, so nice for a special someone!!  (I did make a matching card, by the way...Are you surprised??!!  I will save that for another post)
