Funky Vintage Style

I recently found this stamp set in an old Stampin' Up! catalog and just knew I had to have it. All of my dear friends are such "Fashionistas" that I thought it would really make some cute cards. I used to be quite the fashion queen myself . . . but now I spend all my extra money on stamping stuff. Who needs that new Coach purse or those cute little shoes when Basic Grey just came out with a new line of paper and Stampin' Up! just released their newest catalog ! ? ! ? !

I was very lucky to find this set for sale on SCS at a reasonable price. If you are ever looking for a retired SU stamp set, just go put a request in over at SCS and you will probably get a few e mails from people who would like to sell you theirs. My cute little set had just been sitting around in Arkansas not getting used and made the trip up to Minnesota where it will get inked up on a very regular basis. I love this set!!!!

So for this card I used SU's Chocolate Chip for the card base and used the Weathered stamp with Whisper White craft ink as a background. The designer paper is Basic Grey's "Infuse" paper. The brads are from Archivers as well as the brown polka dot ribbon. I paper pieced the dress forms. Paper piecing and layering are my two most favorite techniques.

Thank you everyone for stopping by, and have a blessed weekend.

Very cute card. Love the Basic Grey and the stamp set is very nice. I have several retired stamp sets on my wish list that I am hoping I can find once my budget will allow it. Thanks for sharing the great card.
