Flowered Hat

Hello dear blog friends,

This week at Sugar Creek Hollow we are playing with fashion. Your vintage or shabby chic cards or other paper-crafted projects must include at least one of the following items –  vintage hats, shoes or purses. The super talented Brenda Brown is the guest designer this week and you can see her beautiful work here. I always admire the beautiful, dressed up hats of the eras gone by, although I am glad I didn’t have to wear it. For my card I found this pretty lady at Back Porch Graphics kindly uploaded by Polly as a freebie for us to use. I love the summery feel of her flowered hat and decided to choose a pink gingham paper to match this delightful image. I also played with my sentiment stamps and combined a Kanban and Whimsy stamp for the birthday greeting. Hope you like my take on the challenge.

Challenges I like to enter are:

BPG_VintageHat

The charming lady with the flowered hat from Back Porch Graphics

BPG_VintageHat1

The sentiments and roses

BPG_VintageHat2

The lace, bow and little butterfly

BPG_VintageHat3

The inside decorated with striped paper and butterflies

BPG_VintageHat4

Project details:

  • White and black cardstock
  • Gingham and striped designer paper from Bird’s Cards (Free printable)
  • Vintage image from Back Porch Graphics
  • Kanban “Happy Birthday”  sentiment stamp from Annabel stamp set
  • Whimsy sentiment for dictionary script from “Celebration Pennants” stamp set
  • Spellbinders Nestabilities  “Floral Ovals” and “Classic  Ovals”
  • Upikit butterfly punch
  • Hug Snug seam binding “Pink Tulip”
  • Pearls
  • Lace
  • Paper roses
  • Skwiglues glitter “Crystal”

That’s all from me for today. Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate your visits so much. Hope to see your card at the Sugar Creek Hollow Vintage Hats, Shoes or Purses Challenge this week. Enjoy a wonderful week and happy crafting.

Regards from South Africa,

Amelia

    Amelia, I so enjoy visiting your blog with each update – though I don’t always leave a comment, I always feel peaceful and happy to see your beautiful creations. Love how this little bow is perfectly feathered out, and two little posies grace the center. The focal image is beautiful – so feminine and romantic, as are all the elements in your creation. An incredible card, Amelia.
