Sarah Hurley Challenge – #50 Vintage

We are starting to plan a house move so things are starting to get a little hectic round here...thank goodness for crafting to relax me.

This is my first challenge as part of Sarah Hurley’s DT and the theme for our challenge is:


We have a sponsor for this challenge, Altered Expressions and they have donated three fabulous prizes.  I used one of Altered Expressions wonderful Hummingbird collage sheets and made this little boxed notelet set:

I made a simple square box from plain white card and covered the edge of the lid with some cream lace. I then took one of the larger Hummingbird images from the collage sheet and triple embossed it also adding a line of gold and then white embossing around the edge, because the image was already embossed the gold and white seeps in and gives a lovely soft edge.

This image was mat and layered on some pink Core’dinations, white punched border and some pearl pink card (which had been embossed in my Cuttlebug).  For the notelets I started by making four 4 inch square cards and punching the edge of each with a border punch., also adding pale pink glitter paper, patterned paper, lace and pearls. Next I’ve taken four more of the Hummingbird images and distressed the edges with some Spun Sugar Distress Ink and then stamped the edges with flourishes (using a butterfly stamp) and embossed with white EP. I then edged the images with a brown Whispers brush marker before layering on the card bases.
