DT Birthday Blog Hop

Hi there!  As promised, here is my post for the DT (Design Team) Birthday blog hop.  This is a super special hop and I don't think one like this has been done before.  Or, if it has, I have never seen one like it!  I am not actually a stop on the hop, but the Vintage Heartfelt Designs site is!  Since I am on the DT, my project was to create a vintage birthday card for it to be placed on the actual blog where you will see projects from most of our DT.  There are about 7 or 8 DTs participating in this hop and each site will have most of their members posting a card so this will be a quick hop, but you will see many different creations on each stop!  Pretty cool, huh? :0)  I think it is, and of course there will be candy!  Please hop over there to start and view all of the work my fellow DT members have done.  There is a list of the participants on the VHD blog for you to follow.  I hope you all have a great time and be sure to leave those comments!

For this card I used some very fun tools.  See pictures below for details.

 Closeup of lacy floral embellishment I won (I'm sorry, but I can't recall from whom!  If it's you, please let me know so I can give proper credit.  This was originally white.)  Happy b-day and stitching stamps from A Jillian Vance Design.  More info on these goodies below. :0)

 Don't you just love that font?  It's a straight stamp that I curved on my acrylic block to make it fit the embellishment.

For this card I used the following:
  • Cardstock:  Stash
  • Printed papers:  The Best of K&Company
  • Frame:  Available thru me from my Memory-Works store (please ask for info!) - Crate Paper Restoration Collection
  • Ink - Colorbox Cat's Eye Dk. Brown (available for sale thru my Memory-Works store)
  • Embellishment - Handmade by a blog I follow.  I won it as candy and for the life of me cannot remember from whom I received it! :(  It was white and I used Walnut Ink from Tsukinek to make it match the card better and for an antiqued look
  • Stamps:  Happy Birthday - Stitches - Brand new set!!!!  both available from A Jillian Vance Design
  • Other Stamps:  Stampin' Up (Buttons, Dress Form - not sure which set they are from)
  • Other Ink:  Stampin Up' - Close to Cocoa and Creamy Caramel 
  • Button Stamps were chalked with craft chalk 
  • Adhesives - ATG, Pop Dots from Recollections
There you have it!  Fairly simple and sweet and for sale!  Please let me know if you have any questions and especially love hearing your comments!
