Vintage Teacup Kittens

Hello, everyone!  Before I get started, I would like to welcome two new followers - Yvonne Kadinger and denisemouton - thank you for joining me!  If you would like to leave a link to your blog in the comments, then I will hop over and follow you too!

Today I'm sharing a vintage-style card!  I was inspired by several challenges (as usual)!  I used an adorable teacup kittens image from the Ephemera Romance Collage Sheet from Gecko Galz. I fussy-cut so I could pop it up on foam tape.  The heart is die-cut from pink vellum, and the butterflies and tiny heart are punched from rose-coloured foiled cardstock.


  • Collage sheet image:  Gecko Galz Ephemera Romance Collage Sheet
  • Rubber stamp: Sentiment (Crafter's Companion Beatrix Potter Tale of Peter Rabbit)
  • Dies:  Coffee Cup (Die-Versions Wee Petites Cold Weather), Scalloped Stitched Hearts, Square Doily (both unmarked)
  • Patterned paper:  Colorbok
  • Other:  Foiled cardstock (3 Birds Design), vintage lace (second-hand store, very old), ribbon, pink vellum, and flatback pearls (old stash), butterfly and heart punches (unmarked) 

One challenge that inspired me is the Coffee Loving Papercrafters CASEing DT Link-up Party #10, and below is the card to CASE.  I followed the same sketch but my card is landscape-oriented. I was inspired by the pink, the hearts, and the cup!


I also liked the inspiration photos at {PIN}spirational Challenges (I was inspired by the cups, hearts, and pink) and SugarPea Designs Mix it Up 28 (I was inspired by the pink and the flowers:


Two other challenges that caught my eye are the Gecko Galz Vintage Valentine February Customer Challenge, and the Hot Drink challenge at Cut It Up Challenge Blog!
