Shabby Chic Winter card

Hello Papercrafters!  I hope you all enjoyed your Christmas.  We had a wonderful Christmas.  Tried some new recipes.  Any time we cook ...  there are always mistakes and lots of laughs.  My tree's are still up.  I haven't recovered enough to tackle the chore of taking down all the decorations yet.  I"m trying to get back into a routine of crafting and blogging.  I actually have lots of projects I made before the holiday, but just have to write the post.  Today I"m sharing a card designed using "Peaceful Nuthatch" by Mark's Finest Papers.  The challenge this week over at Speedy TV is winter or blue.  We hope you will join us.  You can check out all the Speedy TV challenges on the MAIN PAGE.  Then go to the FOSTV Challenges button and select the challenge from the drop down menu.

Thanks for stopping by!
hugs, Melisa

I do want to share that I made my white paper doily cream using the Fresco Cream Glaze by Golden.  You might be able to get the same effect by watering down some cream acrylic paint.  Then I grunged it up with the Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  I dapped it on here and there and used my finger to smear it around.

Designing with Vintage Digital Images / Stamps

I am so excited to be a Guest designer for Digital Two For Tuesday today.
As I have mentioned before I LOVE Cora's vintage images and today's post is no exception.
I haven't spent alot of time designing with images of children, so it was fun to do something diffenrent.  I would love to have you join me for this challenge.  To play along, hop over to Digital Two For Tuesday, download these  images and join me this week.  The images are free.  After you have created your project, post a link in the comments section, and I will check them out.  I can't wait to see what others come up with!   Cora just ask that you not post the actual images anywhere else and that you give her credit when you post you project.  She spends alot of time shopping for and repairing these images for us to use. 

You can find these images to copy and print HERE.

Designing with Vintage Digital Images / Stamps

Well after creating like a mad women, ignoring everything else, and posting everyday last week, I found myself feeling overwhelmed by emails and other real life stuff that had to be taken care of by Sunday.  I was in a funk for a couple of days, so I started blog hopping tonight, checking out challenges, searching for inspiration.  And then, there they were ...  these 2 sweet little girls.  I found them on Cora's "Digital Two for Tuesday" Blog and I immediately was inspired to print them and color. 

Isn't it funny what each of us are inspired by and right now, at this point, there is just something about those vintage images that is calling my name, teehee.  And they are free, that helps too!  I am on an extremely tight budget so I think that's why I creating more with digitals right now.  Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my rubber and clear stamps, and if I had the money would be loading up on them, but alas, real life doesn't always work out that way.  So for now the digi's are getting me through.  Thank you Cora!! 

You can find this image to copy and print HERE.

I love it when Cora tells us where the images are from too.  This one is from a book written in 1900's.  There is just something soooo cool about knowing that someone so long ago sat down and put their heart into their art,  that it was preserved until now, and that we can still enjoy what was their passion so many years ago, making it a part of what we love to do.

have a great day!  Melisa
