Old Time Goodness

YIPPEE!!! I finally got my Gina K Designs order and included was one of my newest, favorite stamps sets by Theresa Momber, "Timeless Treasures". I LOVE this set and though I had many many things running thru my mind of what to make with it. My first thought was it needed to be something old looking. LOL Not sure why except that when I see pocket watches and cameos, etc. it just makes me think old. NOT in a bad way mind you. My first card with it I wanted to somehow distress the paper which I'm not really good at.. yet... give me time.. hee hee. So I took the pocket watch and the hourglass and stamped all over a sheet of ivory card stock in my Momento Rich Cocoa ink. Then came the fun, let all your frustrations out, part. I simply crumpled it in my hands... over and over. When I decided it looked wrinkled enough... I took my edge distresser and ran it around all sides.. even allowing it to tear the edges here and there. After I finished with that I took my Momento Desert Sand pad and rubbed it all over the card stock. I used my Nestability tags to stamp the "Looking Back" and again used one for the Chocolate Kiss Pure Luxury Card stock. I used Gina K's metallic paste and rubbed some copper coloring all around the edges of my tag as well. Next was the fun part... I added the buttons in the corner. Just simply applying them with glue dots on top of one another and threw in a few metal pieces and added a hemp bow. I thought this would be a perfect "manly" card for a birthday or even a retirement card. Wait until you see what's coming up tomorrow night! Have you heard about the blog hop for Melanie Muenchinger's new set, "Inspiration Mosaic"?? You won't want to miss it. Have a great day and make something old a good memory today. *smile* Signature
