PCC 269, Very Vintage Stampendous Snowy Postcard Stamp

Hello and Happy Thanksgiving Eve. Tomorrow is the day.. I hope you have the Turkey bought!  We aren't having Turkey this year.  Honestly I didn't really intend to cook.  The last couple of years we have gone to Cracker Barrel with the kids that were in town on Wednesday night to have our Thanksgiving.  Everyone just has so many places to go that it seemed silly to spend so much time cooking a huge meal for the kids to spend 1 or 2 hours and leave to eat someplace else.  Well this year I decided I wanted to try cooking again but this time I will cook on Wednesday instead of Thursday and I'm not making a thousand dishes this time.  So I've bought a ham, and will be making homemade macaroni and cheese, sweet potato casserole, corn casserole and green bean casserole.  Those are usually the most requested dishes by the kids!  Hopefully keeping the menu a little more simple and having it on Wednesday will be a great combination and will work out well!

Well since it is  Wednesday, that means another Paper Craft Crew Challenge.  This one was super easy and a lot of fun.  It's a Very Vintage Theme and that's one of my favorite styles!

I used the Stampendous Snowy Postcard Stamp on this one.. it is perfect for a Vintage Look!

I started off by Stamping the Snowy Postcard Stamp onto Crumb Cake Cardstock with Early Espresso Ink.  Once I stamped it, I used an Aqua Painter and some Old Olive Ink to color in the Houses and Holly Leaves as well as the oval ring around the scene.  I sprayed the edges with water and used my finger nails to distress the edges.  I used a heat tool to dry it and then used the aqua painter to color the edges with more of the Old Olive Ink.  I then sponged some Crumb Cake Ink onto the front to age it.  I stamped the retired French Script Stamp in Mossy Meadow Ink (also retired) onto Old Olive Cardstock.  I distressed the edges of this layer the same way I distressed the edges of the top layer.  I used craft glue to adhere slightly skewed the Snowy Scene onto the Old Olive layer.  I tied a piece of Tan Lace around the two layers and then adhered them both to an Early Espresso A2 Card Base.  After deciding that the left upper corner needed some love, I cut some Pine Boughs out of Wild Wasabi Cardstock using the Take A Bough Die set from Concord and 9th.  I sponged the edges with Old Olive Ink and then adhered them with Ranger Multi Medium Matt.  I used a Gina Marie Pine Cone Die set to cut out the small pine cone.  The bottom layer was Chocolate Chip Cardstock and the upper layer was Soft Suede.  I sponged some Soft Suede Ink over the top of the Pine Cone and adhered it over the Pine Boughs with Glue Dots.  I know that had a lot going on.. thanks for hanging in with me on it!  

Thanks for stopping by and have a Blessed Thanksgiving!
