If One Is Good…..


Three is better!!! I just love this new vintage image Karen at Graphic’s Fairy posted this week of a lovely rose with lace trim. I wound up printing 8 of them intending to create some tags. But before I knew it…..they found their way onto cards. Seems they had a mind of their own.

I used My Mind’s Eye papers and layered on a bit of Cosmo Cricket for the sentiment.

An additional tag and doily and mocha colored trim here along with a vintage button.

Pretty much the same elements here…just arranged differently gives me another sweet card. 

I layered the sentiment over a sage green element to pull the leaf color down to the corner.

For this card I added a bit of the blue and gold dot pattern from yesterdays card. It’s a simpler arrangement .

I was very pleased with myself for using up all the papers and not adding to the scrap pile. I will be trying this more often.

I’ll be adding these to the selection of cards that will be great for Mother’s Day. I’ll be posting a special promotion for them in the shop starting Sunday. You know I gotta do something special for all us Moms!!!

  1. Love them Ginny…all they are missing is a big PINK bow…and gifty tag saying “To my BFF Heather”. I Just LOVE LOVE that GF image!! Hugs from your BFF :0)

  2. I saved that image too, but haven’t used it yet.. now I’ve got some good inspiration. I almost printed yesterday, but had other things going and didn’t have a true idea yet anyway. Love these cards.

    • The vintage Halloween papers. If I’m not mistaken you picked up some of those when you were in the shop right? You just didn’t know at the time how great they would be for summer cards : )

    • OOOps sorry Renee…I didn’t look so carefully at what post you were commenting on. The paper is from the large paper pad that was on the little shabby chic dresser : ) Hope to see you soon !

      • Thanks Ginny, and I’m actually planning on stopping by Tues or Wed!! So excited 🙂 Especially now that you’ve enabled me even more by talking about Nichols & Stafford.. I must go there too!!

  3. You have a way of making cards that are just gorgeous in all their layers! Very inspiring although I have no clue how to cook up something like that 🙂 I still work in two layers at most LOL.
