"Vintage" Pansies

Hello my friends! I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day and spent it with all you hold most dear! It's Monday and that means Kitchen Sink Stamps Day! Remember this card from last week (incidentally, take a look at this neat little honor!)? I told you then you'd be seeing more crocheted embellies and I have another one today!

The little flowers are so easy - you only need to know about 2-4 stitches and they take about 5 minutes! I'm thinking I need to make up a bunch and sell 'em - lol!! :) The book print flower behind the crocheted one is another photocopy from an old flower book I have - it has some beautiful old color "plates" of wild flowers - very neat book! Photocopying them is a nice way to use them while preserving the book!

I wanted my card to have a soft, feminine, vintage feeling today so I pulled out 3 Step Pansies and some Webster's Pages paper. These flowers just say vintage to me and I love them in plums! The sentiment is a mix of Words of Love and Vintage Words. A couple of the leaves and the big flower are popped up on dimensionals.

Oh and I almost forgot, the layout for this card is this month's Dirty Dozen sketch - the new DD gallery is up and there's lots of beautiful projects there! :)

Be sure to visit the rest of the KSS Crew - I just know you are going to be wowed!! And how about NEW KSS?? Well, it's coming March 3rd and you will LOVE them! hee hee! Have a great Monday everyone!

  1. Julie, this is absolutely stunning! Perfectly vintage with those pansies and all the extra touches you've added! (And I only know how to crochet the shell pattern, so unless you want to teach me by email, I'll buy some of those flowers!) Also I love how you combined the two different sentiment styles... what a great look!
