Some Vintage Love for You

Happy Friday!

I am not even going to make you wait while reading through a bunch of jibber-jabber.  I promised yesterday to tell you who my favorite designer is.  And it is Lisa Pace. I designed this card to send to her to thank her for her inspiration and willingness to always share herself with us.

Among other things, like the best books EVER,  Lisa has a stamp line with Pink Persimmon called Antiquated.  She has the most wonderful vintage designs and I am lucky enough to own some of them.

I stamped the corset and then cut it out.  I wanted it to be dimensional, so I popped it up with dimensional squares.  Then I stamped the image again on leftovers from the background and cut out the little angel image and popped her back on top.

I turned the paper over and found a pattern that would still accept some ink, so I stamped the word Corsets on it and then popped it up too.

The flowers are cut from Tim Holtz Glassine Paper that I crumpled and distressed and then sprayed with water.  It makes the coolest texture.  I used a die from MFT Stamps to cut the flowers.  And guess what I used to stamp on them?  Yup...that corset stamp.  It is so much fun to use ONE stamp in lots of different ways.

I would love for you to look at Lisa's blog.  Click here for the link.  You will NOT be disappointed.

I will see you tomorrow with a special post about a precious friend of mine.
