I ordered some of the above stamps, and here's my first attempt with a couple of them. I used Distress Inks for the background, a little bit random, and Stazon inks for the two VI stamps, and I did a second generation impression of the sentiment (trying to be a bit "arty" !), you can just about see the word "dream" on the right of the card. Then I matted and layered on to a piece of pink mirror card, then on to a cream card base.

I made this card for Phill Martin's birthday. I used his butterfly stamp for the background and embossed it using three different embossing powders mixed together. I matted and layered on to Creata mirror card, then added ribbon and used a Little Claire stamp for the cup and cakes panels, and an Acid Drops and Whatnots sentiment completed it, with a few gems in the corners and a ribbon flower.

Here's my entry to the above challenge. I chose the song "Somewhere Over The Rainbow". I like the original version but also really love the Eva Cassidy cover. Here's the link to the challenge

I entered this card into the recent Foil Play challenge. I used the free gifts that came with Papercraft Essentials magazine, and some metallic tape from my stash, together with a kraft card base and a slightly lighter (in colour) kraft card to mount the main topper onto.

One of my favourite crafty magazines is Creative Cardmaking, and I used one of the freebies in conjunction with Creata stash to make the card for this weeks challenge. It may be a slightly different "take" on Vintage, but I just loved the image and the "Rock 'n' Roll logo, so thought I'd try something different. I edged the frame with some pink gingham ribbon, to make a snugger fit ! Here's the link to the challenge http://creatachallenge.blogspot.co.uk/
