Challenge #224 Any Thing Goes Vintage

Vintage, that is a term thrown around a lot these days, but to me it is remembering a simpler time, one you recollect fondly.  I hate to say it buy on Etsy they classify my children's toys as vintage, over 25 years old.  Now they just make the cut off, but boy is that a reality check, your kids are vintage! What does that make me?

For this weeks Any Thing Goes Challenge #224 we have the theme Vintage. Show us what you remember fondly and let's see what the design team has for us.

Karen Letchworth
Karen Letchworth LOVES The Kraft Journal, and was excited about this week's Anything Goes/Vintage Challenge because she knows the Kraft Outlet carries EVERYTHING she needs to make a quick and easy card for any challenge, and any occasion.  She started this card with a Small Lunch Bag Kraft Note Card, and attached some inked patterned papers which she machine stitched together to create her base.  Next, she added a sweet Mini Kraft Merchandise Bag and wrapped several lengths of Baby Blue Baker's Twine around it, as well as some little accents including a piece of Black With White Polka Dot Washi Tape.  She tucked a gift card inside the Mini Kraft Merchandise Bag and also added an ink-stained Tiny Wooden Clothespin to it for an extra touch.  The sentiment was made using a rub-on that she applied  to a small scrap of Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock using her Bone Folder Tool.  Karen hopes you'll stop by the Kraft Outlet to do some shopping, and then come play along with us in this week's challenge.  You're also invited to stop by Karen's Blog, My Cup Runneth Over, to say hello and take a closer look.

Tammy Hobbs
For the "Anything Goes - Vintage" challenge, Tammy decided to pull out one of her favorite wooden stamps that has not received some love in a long time. She started with a card base of Brown Kraft Cardstock. She embossed the card base with a vintage embossing folder for texture and visual interest.  She stamped the cameo image onto Buff Ivory Cardstock in Kraft Ink. Tammy then trimmed the image down adding a row of cream lace to the bottom. She took a length of Vintage Winter White Seam Binding and wrapped it around the focal image at the bottom and tied off in a fussy bow adding a kraft brown rose bud to the center. She used foam adhesive to pop it up in the center of the card base finishing off with a few pearls. To find out how Tammy was inspired and view additional pictures, please visit her blog at: Creating Somewhere Under The Sun.

Marsha Drain

It is easy to create a "Vintage" card with products from the Kraft Outlet.  Marsha started with Brown Kraft cardstock and then layered it with a true Vintage Dictionary Page. The antique image and sentiment are printed on Buff Ivory cardstock and die cut in this great shape.   With or without distress ink, this paper lends itself to the vintage look.  The Label Holder was a new product for Marsha  - and just right for the look she was trying to achieve.  An embossed fishtail out of Brown Kraft cardstock  a piece of Black Twill Tape next to it and some Earthy Hemp Cord - all finishing touches for a vintage look.  For more details, Marsha invites you to check out her blog Grammas Room.
