Stamp Review Crew: Vintage Leaves







Those Vintage Leaves are gorgeous no matter how you stamp them!  I kept them neat and clean and trimmed with gold.  I am definitely on a gold kick these days. Last year it was all about silvers and blues for me at holiday time - this year it is gold and bold!  The sentiment is from Watercolor Words and stamped in Blackberry Bliss.

Even though the calendar says September we are having a heat wave - high 80's and maybe even 90 before the week is over!  Not going to complain - the cold weather will be here soon enough.  I have no AC in my craft room - we hardly ever need it here.  But I do have a nifty stand up fan that turns to keep me cool.  Paper crafting in front of a fan should be an Olympic Sport!  I have to quickly get a sequin or piece of cardstock glued down before the fan makes a return trip and blows everything around!  I give up trying to corral the backs of those dimensionals - it's like stamping inside a snow globe when that fan swivels by!


If you missed Bronwyn Eastley's amazing creations head back to her blog. Otherwise hop ahead to see what that talented Mike Funke has in store!

Oh, Linda, another awesome card! Love the touches of gold and that sentiment looks great stamped across the leaf tips.

What a gorgeous card, Linda! I love the colors you used. It's in the 90s here as well, so I'm happy to see your touch of fall!

Sounds like stamping in your craft room is much like mine, lol! Love clean bold and gold of your card, so rich and lovely :)

This is beautiful! I love that gold strip! Fabulous take on the sketch!

Obviously you have your timing down between fan turns as your card turned out beautifully!! Honestly, Linda, thanks for the chuckle, I would not be nearly as adept!

Gorgeous autumn card and the over-stamped sentiment is such a cool look (no pun intended!)

Linda, I love the gold thread holding the leaves together! I also like the added glitz! Nicely done!

Wonderful take on the sketch--those leaves are gorgeous!

Donna said...

Oh my goodness, your card is gorgeous but I was laughing to read your delightfully descriptive scene in your fan-blowing craft room. So silly to imagine it (but I felt badly for you needing to deal with that)!!! TFS! Your card is very bold and beautiful, in a sophisticated way! I love it! :)
