Vintage Love Letter

Hello again, well I finally figured out how to change the reactions on my post, now only have 'feel good' ones - well, it is my blog after all LOL!!

I've had a busy morning today, thought I would have got a little more done by now but can't really complain...

Here is today's card - followed a sketch this time from Stamping 411 which was quite straight forward so all's good.  Can you spot the difference???  Of course you can!  The first card looked a little naked so just had to add the greeting, now it's ready to give to someone!

What I used:

Card:  Riding Hood Red, Black, Very Vanilla, Love Letter DSP

Ink:  Riding Hood Red, Soft Suede

Stamp sets:  Easter Blossoms, Sincere Salutations

Tools and other fun stuff:  Large Oval punch, Scalloped Oval punch, Buttons #5 Sizzlits die, Stampin' Dimensionals, stamping sponges.


  1. Hi Frances,
    Welcome to the world of blogging, you're doing great so far! Very nice work - and thanks for the reminder that I should use that button die too, I haven't played with that one for a while.

    Thanks for your lovely feedback about my cupcakes - I did mainly copy the tutor's ones, but I have gotten a bit carried away and invested in a few tools since then. I have a hard time juggling that and stamping - so much fun to be had doing both! I'm sure your cupcakes would be just as fabulous with all the training you've had, perhaps you need to blog some of those too!

  2. This is so sweet! I love that image, and the colors & dsp are fabulous! Thanks for playing along this week :)

  3. Beautiful card. I really like it with the sentiment too!

  4. This is so sweet! I love your choice of designer paper! The sentiment is the perfect touch!

  5. Lovely work Frances. Thanks for the mention of Stamping 411. It looks like a useful site.

  6. I love what I'm seeing done with that stamp image! Great job with the sketch!

  7. Frances -- I love both versions of your card. Great way to use the sketch! Thanks so much for playing along with the Stamping 411 Operators this week! Blessings, Gretchen
