Vintage tag: postage theme

Hi. I had fun making this tag for the challenge at Tag Tuesday - mail, stamps. I love this theme!

I've had this stamp set for ages; it may have been Stampin' Up but maybe not because I always save those containers they come in. I had fun using Distress Ink, white paint, Fiskars postage stamp punch, Impression Obsession Love stamp. Thanks for stopping by!

"Santa Baby!" challenge

Hello! The new challenge theme at Cards In Envy is "Santa Baby" -- make a card using anything that reminds you of Santa. Your card can be any size as long as it's flat for mailing.

I made this card with an All Dressed Up Stamps image. Writing that letter to Santa was very exciting when we were kids, especially right after that big Sears catalog arrived!!

Hope you'll join in the challenge! Have fun!

"Fire or Rain?" at Cards In Envy

Hi. I like the new challenge at Cards In Envy: Fire or Rain? You can interpret it in different ways at this time of year--cool, rainy fall days;  the vivid colors of leaves; autumn campfires...I chose a rainy day digital stamp from Vera Lane Studio at Etsy. Her raincoat, umbrella and boots are shined up with Glossy Accents.

Have fun creating a card, any long as it's flat for mailing!
