Here is one of my latest cards using stamps and paper from the new catalog. I just love this stamp set "Calendar Kids." The four images are so cute and they hearken back to times long past with their vintage feel. they work so well with the other vintage sets in the catalog such as "Artistic Etchings" and "Notably Ornate." The patterned paper in this card is from the "Newsprint" Designer Series Paper pack and also has that vintage feel. The funny thing about this particular piece of paper is that on the opposite side there is a a bold reverse print with the name "John F. Ellis." I don't know what his middle name is but I have an uncle named John Ellis. As fun as it would have been to use that on this card, it was a bit to dark for it. the wonderful thing about our double sided paper is that there are two sides to chose from. This card also uses the new vintage brads, trinkets and crocheted ribbon. Beautiful!

Paper: Blushing Bride, Newsprint DSP, Very Vanilla, and Water color paper.
Ink: Craft Vanilla, Basic black (Stazon would have been better for the girl), Blushing bride, Rose red, Chocolate chip (hair) and Blush Blossom marker (still available) for her face.
Accessories: Black Satin Ribbon, Trinkets, Antique Brads, Victoria Crochet Trim. Water color pens.
