Vintage Vogue Thoughts


I am quite pleased with myself! 😀 I only have 5 pages to go to finish mum & dad’s album!!! And … I still have 10 days to go!!! Admittedly … if I had a bit more time … the pages would be a bit more professional … and a little more impressive. But … overall I am quite happy with what I have done considering how little time I have had. I know mum will love it! So … I thought I would take some time out … to give you a card! 🙂 

I’ve gotta say … I LOVE this card!!! I know … I might need to buy a bigger hat … (to fit the big head!!!) 😉 😀 🙄 You know how sometimes a card just comes together perfectly and you feel really thrilled with the final result. Doesn’t happen all that often to me … but this time it did!!! I really really love this new in-colour Soft Suede … and I am really excited that it is going to become one of SU!’s new core colours. I am definitely buying that re-inker now!!! All the images (except the phrase) on this card are embossed with white embossing powder … so it has an extra glossy / glamourous feel to it!

This is my entry for the latest “Stamping 411” Sketch challenge. It was a yummy one!!! 😀  Anyway … off to do some more scrapping. And … I also need to design my Convention Swaps! We are having a play day at Leonie’s on Saturday to do our swaps … so I had better have something in mind so I can pack up some suitable stuff to take with me! Ronnie is home (and doing well) … and Leonie figures she can still keep an eye on him … while we do our stamping! It just will mean he can’t run out and get our yummy fish and chips for lunch for us! Our “cabana boy” will have to behave himself this time! 😉

    This is gorgeous, Andrea. Will definitely be casing it. I thought you were coming to my place to do scrapping? It’s a good feeling when you finally see the end in sight.
    Have a great day.
    Andrea adds: Yes! That was the plan, Julie … but we have a house guest (one of the boys from Q’ld – friend of the kids) who arrived last Friday … and is here until Monday next week! (Was originally supposed to be 4 days … but then he decided to stay for a friend’s 21st that is on this weekend). With the kids all out at uni … and school … I don’t feel able to leave him without company! So … am kinda house bound at the mo! I was soooooo wanting to come. So … I will just have to come sometime and see your “playroom” … and do some other stamping! Still the plan … sometime soon … I hope! (Probably not until June, though!!! – I have 2 classes to prepare for & convention & weekend in Melbourne … all in May!) Thanks for the invitation … I will be there asap!!! 😀


  2. OH WOW – This one is a true winner in anyone’s book!! I just love this stamp set – have managed to sneak it inot my place – LOL – now just to get the medallion and then I can CASE you too!
    Andrea adds: LOL! Always a compliment … when you would like to CASE, Debbie! I think it is the colours … or perhaps the embossing … that makes this one so lovely! 😀

    this is just gorgeous. Love the colours. Love the way you used the tags under the flower. fantastic card. I might need to case this one.

    Andrea adds: Thanks Liam! It is so nice to see you back again! Will pop by your blog to see your challenge card! Hugs, Andrea xxx


  6. Lynda says:

    This card is majestic Andrea. I LURVE it to bits and wholeheartedly agree with Debbie!! I have not even givent he Medallion Stamp a sideways glance…but what you have done with it is beautiful. The combo rocks (note to self…..get Soft Suede out to play with). I am so v v glad that u have progressed on the album. Good luck with the convention swaps!! 00xx
    Andrea adds: I think that is the first time someone has called my card “majestic”!!!! You are such a hoot, Lynda! I’m sure that it was said in all sincerity … it just tickled my funny bone! Working on the album today! Oh … and for the record … I didn’t even give it a 2nd glance either … but then saw a few projects done with it … and decided it would be perfect for M&D’s album … so decided to take the plunge! Glad I did! Hugs, Andrea xxx

    Andrea adds: I am rather excited by the response to this card! It is so lovely that so many have taken the time to stop and comment on it! And … I just love that ribbon, too! Must remember to get the Baja roll now that it is staying!!!


  11. Sonia G says:

    You have created the perfect balance. Each section is done using the same technique, yet you’ve chosen stamps that don’t overshadow each other! Love it!
    Andrea adds: If ever I need a “formal” critique for a card … I will come to you Sonia! You have such a great way with words! Hugs xxx 😀


    1. Sonia G says:

      Oh boy! Sorry for being so formal!!!!

      It’s great, fantastic and sensational!
