Forgotten Friday Number 7- Vintage Crafty Individuals

Hello Folks, it's Friday so, on my Blog, that means that it's time for my Forgotten Friday post. This week, I've been looking through my neglected Crafty Individuals stamps. I'm an avid collector of these gorgeous stamps, introduced to them by my lovely friend Elaine. However, because I'm so busy, I often don't get to use them, and they get forgotten about. The stamps that I have used on this project are no exception.
I have used CI-173, CI-148 both for the first time, and two old faithfuls, CI-116 the crackle stamp, and CI-085 the letter stamp.
I wanted to create a vintage feel to my piece, so I added cream lace, pearl buttons, and some seam binding. I stamped onto Kraft card, and made my favourite flower at the moment out of brown parcel paper, spritzed with Distress re-inker and water, scrunched, then dried with a heat gun to make it stiff. I added a cute little metal butterfly to tone in with the cream lace.
I painted the main image with Distress Inks to give a washed out feel, and edged the cream card with Distress Inks.
Have a look through your old and neglected stash, make something, and leave a link to your project in my comments. I'll pop along and have a look. I'd love it if more people joined in with my Friday makes, and would be happy to give a spot prize of some of my forgotten stash! Thanks for stopping by today, Judith xx

I love the vintage look on this card and must admit I'd not thought of using brown parcel paper to make flowers - a great idea. I'll try to get back later with a card but must first do some of the dreaded h****work!!

Hi there Judith, I love your pretty vintage card, love the flower colour too. Have to admit I have lots of 'old' stamps but I wouldn't part with them, so must use them. Thanks for the reminder, I hope I'll get some time and join in later:0) xxx

I've gone for a forgotten technique this week as I've gathered loads of packs of serviettes because they have good images on them.  they are just piled up in my craft room - too nice to use as actual serviettes!!  My card is here

Great card Judith, you know anything with a Crafty Individuals stamp will press my buttons! Super vintage feel and a gorgeous signature flower from you - I definitely need that master class.

Love your vintage card. Always love CI stamps. Gorgeous flower. Sorry not been around my Son and his partner have split and I've had to empty half my craftroom to re-acccomodate him. Can't tell you how much stuff I've had to throw. Hugs x ChrisB

This is lovely Judith. You know I love the vintage look and all the elements are so pretty especially the lace and the 'brown' flower. I love that CI stamp too.
