OSAT Blog Hop - Very Vintage

Hello and Welcome to One Stamp At a Time's July 2017 Very Vintage Blog Hop!  If you have already been hopping you should have landed here from the Oh So Talented Melissa Davies' Blog and thanks so much for continuing on!  If you started with me, make sure you click the next button at the end of my post to check out all of the awesome inspiration this month!

I have to admit that I was a little stumped at first but as I googled vintage colors, cards, etc. I finally came up with an idea... thank goodness. lol  

For my card I used the Love Paris Stamp Set from Fun Stampers Journey.  I love the vintagey look of the stamp, script, etc.  For the sentiment I used the FSJ Tag Elements stamp set along with the Tag This Cartridge with my Punch Handle.  

I used Stampin' Up! Inks in Pear Pizzazz, Powder Pink and Soft Sky to stamp my background for both my card background and my Pillow Box.  

My Cardbase was Stampin' Up! Powder Pink Cardstock that measured 11" x 4 1/4" and was scored at 5 1/2" for a top folding card.  My stamped layer was Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock and measured 4" x 5 1/4" and was matted on a piece of SU Basic Black Cardstock that measured 4 1/8 x 5 3/8".  After I did my random stamping for the background, I matted the stamped layer and used some Natural Journey Thread to wrap it three times and added the Powder Pink Tag that had the "You are Special" sentiment stamped in FSJ Black Licorice Ink.    I stamped the Eiffel Tower in more of the FSJ Black Licorice Ink onto Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock.  I used my detail sheers to cut it out... about now I was wishing I had purchased the dies on this one. lol
