Vintage Happy Holidays

Today, we have the lovely and talented Becca Feeken joining us to share a couple of gorgeous cards with an abundance of vintage charm. Print

Hi everyone, I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to be posting on the MFT Blog today! As a long time admirer, I jumped at the chance to play with some of the goodies I’ve seen so many of the MFT Design Team using. I love layers, lace, a little bit of vintage, and a tiny bit of pink, so I rolled all of that together in my first card today.

BeccaFeeken-MFTGuest-111714-01

I started with a kraft card base and added some tea stained papers followed by a piece of design paper. I layered half of a doily behind the  Stitched Oval STAX Die-namics, added lace and ribbon, and topped it off with an element from the Christmas Label and Tag Die-namics, stamped with a sentiment from Christmas Labels and Tags. It’s a step away from traditional red, green, and gold, but vintage rose and a little tinsel still ring in Christmas.

Cream and gold are one of my all time favorite color combinations and work so well for dressy Christmas cards. For my second card I selected the Snowflake Fusion Cover-up Die-namics in cream and backed it with a layer of gold poster board. I stacked two graduated snowflakes from the Pierced Snowflakes Die-namics over layered ribbon accents and finished up by adding the word ‘joy’ from the Peace, Love, Joy Die-namics.

You might know by now that my go-to style is layered and somewhat on the elegant side. I’m amazed that these products will lend themselves to any style you want to breathe into them. I so thank the sweet ladies of My Favorite Things for inviting me to come and play and thank you for stopping by today!

Stitched with Love, from Miss Tiina, will impart a handmade feel to your projects with realistic stitched and loose thread images. Mix and match the simple sans serif phrases with the stitch-look accent words for complete sentiments that will capture hearts for anything from “get well” to “glad you’re my friend” occasions. Build a spool with the coordinating Die-namics and then use the image in this stamp set to “thread’ the spool. This set presents an endless variety of sentiment and accent options.
