PPA 80 Those Were the Days~Vintage

Today I'm so excited because I stepped out of my comfort zone for a Vintage project! You can use the photo above for inspiration, but remember that you don't have to use the same colors as the photo---it's just for you to get started.

I am in LOVE with this First Edition Designer Series Paper (Occasions Mini). It is thinner than most of the Stampin' Up! and is easier to manipulate. I cut my scallops out of it, then ran them through the crimper two different ways. I used my fingernails to "age" the edges. I put an antique brad into the middle of my flower.

Aren't the bees sweet? That is the Botanical Gazette Designer Series Paper from the Occasions Mini.

I am so glad you stopped by to see what I created for the Pals Paper Arts Challenge. Are you ready to go vintage? What are you waiting for?

Supplies List:
Card Stock: So Saffron, Not Quite Navy, Very Vanilla
Designer Series Paper: Specialty First Edition, Botanical Gazette
Stamps: Define Your Life
Ink: Basic Black, River Rock (edges)
Accessories: Scallop Circle, 1-3/4" and 2-3/8" Scallop Circle, Antique Brad, crimper, sponge dauber, (with River Rock ink pad)

Beautifully done, Patti. I love the layers of scallop and regular circles and especially done with some DSP!
