All Those Years Ago

This title is the theme for Sunday Stamper challenge 258 and Hels is asking for something with a vintage feel, obviously to include stamping.  I recently downloaded some vintage images from an Etsy site HERE so based my card design around one of the lovely postcards and again using up scraps and left over bits and pieces.  Backing paper is from Tim Holtz vintage shabby range although it has been overstamped with lots of images so not really recognisable! There is a scrap of embossed watercolour paper, a scrap of die cut lace (also TH); the postcard of course and a stamped sentiment by Creative Expressions, cut out with a Sizzix die (Stampin' Up).  This also has some overstamping of swirls and finally a tattered flower (Sizzix).


  1. This is a super card Val, I love the postcard and the way it's tucked into the die cut. Great to use up more of the ever growing stash of scraps.

  2. Love all your different images Val great vintage look card and great colours


  3. The way the eye is drawn by those postage stamps on the postcard is very effective & the whole effect of the overstamping with your scraps provides a unified vintage look. Looks like you're doing well with the scraps.

  4. Beautiful card I really like the postcard and how you have used it. All the stamping really works so well. Hugs x ChrisB

  5. Val - this has worked so well (wish I could use my scraps to such good effect). The splash of green makes all the difference - it really lifts the whole design ... Sarah x
