Simon Says Stamp - VINTAGE and FLOWERS

Over on the Simon Says Stamp challenge blog we have a fabby challenge to create with Vintage and flowers. Just 2 of my favourite things!

I have given up buying any craft products till Easter, so I was spurred on to look through some cd's I bought a while back that have loads of vintage images on. I printed them onto photo paper for using on cards. I love how these images can inspire the colours for a card. As you can see, I got into it! It's also not hard for me to use flowers!


Crepe paper streamers were my last purchase before my self imposed shopping ban. I have seen the potential for them on other people's blogs, and ended up one evening watching videos on youtube. I have sprayed these with glimmer mist, and dotted a glossy accents type product by Anna Griffin on them to create faux dewdrops.

these cards are wonderful - obviously your shopping ban is actually doing you good! I have done this a few times for Lent. This year I can only buy from one shop and have given up sweets too which I find really hard...
