365 Cards Blog Hop!

Greetings!  There's a "Free For All:  Rock Your Sytle" blog hop going on over at 365 Cards!  Each Design Team Member was asked to create a card in a style that we enjoy, with a caveat, we are to work with a package of goodies that our leader, Pam, sent to us.  Now for me, my favorite style is retro/vintage.  I LOVE the days gone by.  One of my all time favorite designers that I began following soon after starting to blog is Lynne Montcrieff of Adorn.  I am so drawn to her pieces.  They are always vintage, done with great restraint and I love how she uses just littlest bit of fabric and/or lace or fibers to create her card.  She make her own dyes, recycles shower curtains, and much more. She inspires me!  For my card above, I created a card that reminded me of one of the cards that Lynne created for a recent Take Ten Publication. I layered orange fabric to a card base, tucked a scrap of a vellum bag by Fancy Pants behind it, stamped a great retro pickup truck by Paper Artsy onto scrap card stock, added faux stitching and added it to the card front.  A bit of washi tape by My Mind's Eye, a sprocket by Idea-olgy, and a baker's twine bow by American Crafts were added next.  A bit of vintage style fabric was added next along with several words by Artistic Outpost.  I had a lot of fun and hope you will pop on over to see what the rest of the Design Team have created for you.

Now it is your turn! Create a card to link up to 365 Cards choosing the style of one of the 365 Card Designers by November 4, 2013 for a chance to win a package of goodies similar to those we received for the Blog Hop. Good luck!

Hugs, Yvonne

So love this vintage card, Yvonne! Even that once-dreaded color orange! Great layering, too! Since we are campers, just love that bit at the bottom right! Sweet project!

Carla said...

Very cool! I love the way you cut a scene from the fabric!

Yvonne, this is a really awesome card. I love the fun embellishments. Like you, I like seeing Lynne's work. But then, I like YOURS too! Have a great weekend! ~Michelle

I happen to love all things vintage, and the pop of red is fantastic.

Oh my goodness, you dear woman.
I popped on over to see what delights you had been created but expecting for one moment such words. Please know how much this means to me, more than you could possibly imagine.
We share the same love of anything from the past, something that tells a history whether real or imagined within our minds and for me, that is the joy of blogging, connecting with someone like yourself who I never would have otherwise had the opportunity to call my friend.
Fabulous feel to your card with that cute piece of fabric and the twine is a wonderful accent.
Never forget how you inspire so many of us and that is why you deserved the recognition of not only being published in Stampington & co publications, but for being a Guest Artist in Sampler, surely the highest form of recognition for a stamper.
Wishes & Thanks

Wow, this so beautifully represents your style, and definitely the addition of the fabric is my favorite part.
