Remembering an Earlier Time.

Papertrey Ink decided to hold a “Create Along with Us” challenge this week even though there is not usually a challenge during release week.  Their new release goes live tonight at 8:00 pm MST and this is not good news for my wallet.  Anyway the challenge was to take inspiration from the countdown sneak a peek to today’s release and craft something.  I produced two items for this challenge that required the overnight test.  The overnight test means that if I am thinking a card or a layout needs to go into the big round file, I leave it overnight first, to see if it got any better looking while I slept.  Guess those two didn’t get any prettier overnight, because I made something new the next day.  Good news is, I like the new one.  Here was my inspiration from the countdown.

sample Vintage linens


I wanted to recreate the feeling of  embroidered napkins or doilies upcycled from other things.  I am in possession of some  hand embroidered vintage pillowcases upcycled from flour sacks.  The punch I used, which is from an American Crafts “Knockouts” Christmas set, recreates the look of my pillowcase edges quite well.  I used Papertrey Ink’s Friendly Flowers stamp set with gold embossing powder and vellum to get a “vintagy” look.



Supplies:  Papertrey Ink Friendly Flowers stamp set, American Crafts Knockouts punch set, My Minds Eye patterned paper, Recollection D’or embossing powder, Recollections card base and Scor tape.
