Digital Two for Tuesday 53
The digital stamps this week are from a sewing course from the 1920's. "You too could become and excellant seamstress and hat maker."
This week's guest designer is Claudine. She has created for us two cards with amazing flower elements. I just love her style and sense of color.
Here is her bio in her own words.
"My name is Claudine Poch and I live in Southwestern Ohio. I have been crafting almost my whole life and making cards for the past five years. I am an avid cat lover and I often incorporate cats into my cards and ATC’s. Additionally, I enjoy many things vintage, especially items and designs from the 1950’s. I enjoy making cards with the vintage images available through the Two for Tuesday blog, and appreciate the opportunity to be the guest designer for this week.
For this first card, I used a vintage pattern paper from Graphic 45. I decided to keep the image simple by printing it out and using Tim Holtz distress ink around the edge of the image. I used a vintage-feel edge punch, and added a flower and black half pearls.
For this second card, I wanted to incorporate several vintage-looking elements. I used a vintage patterned paper from Graphic 45, a lacey edge punch, eyelet lace, and embossing on the brown panel. I printed the hat image and colored it with Copic markers. I made the satin flower by twisting ribbons and gluing them with a hot glue gun. I completed the flower arrangement by adding eyelet ribbon and a beaded stick pin. "
