This card is one of my favorites from VSN. The challenge was to use inchies, this works great with a square or rectangular image. The image here is from the new Fresh Cuts stamp set. I stamped the image on white card stock with black ink. I cut it into 1 inch squares and mounted it on a piece of black card stock.
The back ground piece is white and I stamped it with En Francais then I placed it on my Scor Pal and scored the background in inch squares. I finished it off with a piece of dotted ribbon and a prima with a crystal brad center.

I love the look of black and white!

I was actually really excited that I had the oppurtunity to stamp this past weekend. The best part is I was so happy with what I stamped.

I love vintage so when I had the chance to use a vintage set for a VSN challenge, I took it.

This is an older set called See with the Heart. I was so sad when they retired their vintage sets as I loved them so. Which is why they are still in my collection. :)

For this challenge we had to use newspaper, I used distress inks to age the newspaper and the stamped image. I stamped a few random images on the newspaper. Added a stick pin from the pretties kit and a cool vintage inspired prima flower. I really like how this one turned out.

I will be uploading cards all week. It is so exciting to be able to have the time to create once more.

Ok, first I want to say I feel horrible for not updating my blog since the middle of June. I just can't believe how quickly the summer has gone. I have finished back to school shopping and am settling into the last few weeks before the kiddos head back to school.
I have been busy stamping and creating but I couldn't post it cause it was mostly secret sister stuff or items for magazines. But it is VSN tonight over at Splitcoast Stampers so I will have a bunch to post later. :)

My other news is I got published again. It was a huge surprise to I got paid for it. Knock me over with a feather. It is in the October issue of Crafts and Things magazine. I was excited when I saw it.

Also I love my new blog look. A big shout out to my friend Jen (you know who you are) , I saw her new blog and I had to follow her, cause she is wise. I think it's so cute, now I just need to work on a new header. Should prove interesting. Can't wait to post some new cards tonight....I will be using new in colours from the fall winter idea book. They are fabulous and everybody needs them all. See you soon.
