Beauty in Others Vintage Roses

Well, I believe that it’s Saturday! I’m off to Manhattan this morning to see my friends Jim and Diane. I think that I’ll try to stop by The Ink Pad too! Yesterday I worked on my cards for this month’s card class at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store. Renee and Angie straightened up the store and promised to work on the new storage room today! I’m looking forward to going into the city! I’ll have the whole day to wander around!

I made what I thought was going to be a quick card last night to share with you today. It wasn’t all that quick! LOL! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I took a piece of Kraft Card Stock and heat embossed my greeting from the Altenew Painted Inspiration Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. To make sure that it stayed flat on the card I adhered it with Tombo Extreme. The decorative circle is cut from another piece of Solar White 110lb with the Spellbinders Triple Tear Nestabilities Die. I adhered that to the card with Multi-Matte Medium. My flowers and leaves are form the Altenew Vintage Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the flowers in Soft Lilac, Lavender Fields and Deep Iris with the centers of the small flowers stamped in Warm Sunshine. My leaves are stamped in Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades and Evergreen. The Mini MISTI makes lining up the layers super easy! I cut them out with the Coordinating Dies and adhered them to the card with Dot Runner and Foam Tape. I told myself that I wasn’t going to use any sequins or gold on today’s card! LOL! I do love the bright colors and white against the Kraft, it really makes the flowers and greeting stand out! I hope that you enjoyed today’s card! Thank you for taking some time out of your day to visit with me! I wish you all a very happy Saturday! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Justin! Have you lost it? What do you mean no sequins, gold mirror card stock or feathers? Am I on the right blog? Could it be some kind of little bug has switched me to someone else’s blog and put Justin’s name on it? Oh my, oh my I’m going to have to take my computer to the Computer Doctor (yes, that is the name of the business) to have this checked out!

    So, until I solve this mystery of mysteries – I hope you have a Super Saturday in Manhattan. Love to you my friend! XXOO ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Ha ha ha! Yes, I guess that I have! Nah… I just need to mix it up and go in a different direction ever so often! You are too funny! Not to worry! The sequins and gold card will be back in the morning!
      I had a good day in the city but had a terrible headache when I got home. Hopefully it will be gone by morning. Love you loads! XOXO ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. What a beautiful card! I just love the names of the creative, so descriptive. No sequins or mirror paper needed. Tombow Extreme? Wow. I will have to check that out on Amazon.
    Lucky you to have a Saturday off to wander around Manhattan! The thought of all the walking you do makes my hip hurt more. Yes it’s back, but the spine is much better. Cortisone treatment is good…better than surgery.
    Have the greatest day! Stay out of the heat and rain! Hugs, Nancy B

    1. Thanks Nancy! I love the Altenew colors and the stamps are some of my favorites! Yes, Tombo Extreme is a nice super strong adhesive! I love it! I enjoyed my Saturday off and will do it ago an soon. All work and no play isn’t good for me! LOL! Sorry that you are still having pain but I’m glad that your back is better! Anything is better than surgery!
      I did enjoy my day and hope that you did too! Hugs to you! XO ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. This is such a pretty card, Justin, even without sequins or gold mirror paper! lol I love the colors of the flowers and the doily diecut adds a great deal of interest. You continue to amaze me with the way you put different elements together that I would never even consider. And they look amazing!! I know you miss your frequent trips to the City and will enjoy your day. Haven’t heard of Tombow Extreme, but like Nancy will have to check it out on Amazon.

    1. Thank you so much HJ! I love to sit and think of different things that I can get to work together! Keeps it fresh and interesting! I do miss the city and being there today reminded me how much I do! I need to go back in more often! Tombo Extreme is awesome! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Quick card, right1 this is gorgeous. I really like Kraft, it goes so well with everything. the colors you chose just pop this. No need for sequins. Twins grad party today, just about ready. I’m crashing tomorrow. enjoy your “day off”

    1. LOL! No, it definitely didn’t turn out to very quick Linda! I love kraft and gold, two of my favorite colors! Hope that your party went well and that you enjoy your much needed day of rest! I loved my day off! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Hi Justin,
    I was just thinking how I miss your adventures in NYC. I’m missing it myself since I moved even further away. Hope you had a great time.
    Your card is beautiful as always. Love the white on craft.

    1. Hello Gerri!
      I too miss my city adventures! I did have a great time but it was too quick! Have to make a better plan next time!
      Thank you! Glad that you like the card too! ๐Ÿ™‚
