Vintage Street Market

 Hey there!  I hope you are having a wonderful day!  I am back to share with you a few cards I created making some handmade embellishments with lots of vintage love!
Okay first up is...
I created this card using Family Fun Set's Captain Johnny (stripe), Distinguished Boy (print) and Meghan Kay (polka dot).  I mixed in a piece of vintage film strip and little Twirly Twine in brown with a ticket.
I began with the stripe print which I used a corner rounder on the right sides.  Then I used a little ink to distress the edges.  I sewed down the stripes in two different stitches for a little dimension.  The film strip is stapled to the polka dot panel which doubles as a pocket to house the tag I made.   I created the tag from the printed paper and added a circle punch from cream card stock which the brown Twirly Twine is tied to.  Easy to do and then you can be sure to have a matching tag for all your creations.  The distinguished gentleman cap was punched out with a large circle punch .  I cut out the little square photo  and added it with foam dots.    Final step is to add the ticket from the Twirly Twine.
Next is my Candyland card.
I love the vibrant colors in the Party Games set.  This card uses lots of items from the Paper Sheets & Tags  Party Games to the extreme.   I cut a panel of the green polka dot decorative paper for the front of my card and then added  the lollipop journal block   to which I  stamped my sentiment from the Tags & Things.   I couldn't resist using the yellow crepe paper and cut a thin strip with scissors and then ran through my sewing machine to create this ruffle.  I  hand cut the little boy and house  from the decorative paper then attached with foam dots.  The photo corners were created with red foil super fast by cutting a square, then using a smaller square punch in the center and snip on an angle.  Now you have your own customized photo corners.
I attached the corners with my stapler.  A couple of buttons and a touch of glitter for the lollipops and it was done.
My last card is a vogue tribute.  This card uses lots of the Dimestore Vogue .
I started with a kraft cardstock base and then cut a strip of the pattern print from the Paper Sheets and Tags set .  I punched a scallop edge a long the bottom.  I added a piece of velvet trim with a die cut buckle which is stapled to the edges.  In the center of the buckle is a die cut yellow button fastened with floss.   I cut a panel of the blue gingham and then started layering! I cut out the word "fabulous" from the pattern paper , added glitter alpha stickers to spell "you", and  layered a green tag to the left of it. I created a handmade stick pin easily to coordinate with the card.
To create the stick pin I used a large pearl topped corsage pin and wrapped a pennant shape I hand cut from the pattern paper.  I attached a button with pink Twirly Twine to complete.  Warning!!!  These are addictive to make!  :-)
I hope you enjoyed today's cards and are inspired to make something!
