Nostalgic Bithday Wishes

It feels so good to play with stamps and inks 'just because' - not that I don't enjoy creating for the Design Teams I am on - I do love that and we all know they are the best Companies - but sometimes we just need to touch base with our 'beginnings' and that for me is vintage.

 I have always loved the Material girl stamp set from Crafty Secrets and have looked at it so often thinking about what to create - it was definitely overdue to be 'inky.'

I also used the 'Notably Ornate' set by Stampin' Up! which is a favourite, so could not resist combining the two to create some cards for Card Design Class next week - this is the first of two.

The frame by Stampin' Up, the bling from Want2Scrap©  and the sentiment by JustRite® Papercraft.  I have used IMAGINECrafts®/Tsukineko® Delicata™ Pigment Ink for sponging - it has the the right amount of shimmer for this nostalgic card.

The Labels Twenty-Three  and the Grand Labels Twenty-Three Spellbinders® Nestabilities® have been cut using the  Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine I have also used
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L™ E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser
