I made this for Lydia’s closing challenge in Splitcoast’s Dare to Get Dirty week. I just love vintage phones and that’s why these little phone images appealed to me. I’ve had the sentiment for a long time and I thought it went well w/ all the little telephones. On the left, I stamped the phones w/ different colors of Distress inks and added some of the little numbered dial buttons. The dials on the tiny phones on the right were colored in w/ markers and I used a water brush and scribbled markers to add some paint splatter to these two. For the chevron panel, I stamped it many times and quickly colored them in w/ markers. The 3 circles were die cut. I really wanted some frayed fabric ribbon and couldn’t find any the right color in my stash, so I dyed a piece of white bias tape w/ one of the Distress ink pads, dried (carefully) w/ my heat gun and used my distressing tool on the the edges. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Julie Warner -

I made this for Andrea’s DTGD Challenge on Splitcoast! Check out all the challenge details here: DTGD12AndreaEwen. For my vintagey card, I used images from several different clear sets. This scene is kind of my idea of what a Victorian parlor would look like. I started by stamping the lace (Crafty Secrets) down the side then added the two chairs (Recollections). I stamped bits of lace on scrap vanilla c/s and then stamped the chairs on top in order to paper piece the chair cushions. The little chandelier (Darcie’s) was added and the sentiment (Darcie’s) was die cut w/ Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles die and attached to a black labels 8. It looked a little blank between the chairs so I added a cut out little table (Crafty Secrets). Some pears, black & clear crystals,  some dots of Ranger black enamel accents and little bow topped it off. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.
