Introducing Vintage Treasures Blog Hop

We are so tickled today to be introducing  Vintage Treasures. You'll find a collection chalked full of classics!!  As always, there is a rectangle, oval, square and circle that will work well with everything in your stash and are perfect for layering. Next are several embellishment sets.  As you hop through all the links in the blog hop, you'll see all the new dies and how we used them.

Inspiration for Vintage Treasures

There is a special place in our hearts for those things kept in a hope chest.  Other than a promise of the future, they symbolize things of value and keepsakes that bring back treasured memories.  I delved there to find memories, filigree jewelry and keepsakes of old.  From long-forgotten turn of the century jewelry to the edgings on an old tattered handkerchief, I love bringing the past into the present in a style that is ....well, timeless.  These things -- bejeweled lockets, a sweet tiara and vintage adornments from long ago -- provided the sweet inspiration and restoration of some lovely, lovely Vintage Treasures.

The physical dies in this collection have an extra measure of flexibility and function.  Most templates have an outer rim, and inlay and an inner rim that you can use for your sentiment.

My Project For Today:

I'm tickled to introduce an adorable set of dies S4-990 Bella Luce Oval Etched Dies Vintage Treasures by Becca Feeken.
I think that the oval frame is magnificent and so elegant. Marvellous outer rim makes the card luxuriant and exceptional.

I used gold and delicate pink papers as a background. An oval pattern I cut from a gold paper. In the middle, I put the smaller oval floral background and two layers of the outer rim. To add dimension I used a 3D tape for each element. 

I decorated my card with handmade flowers using an adorable set of dies Spellbinders S4-995 Cinch and Go V Etched Dies Vintage Treasures by Becca Feeken.

Here is what the plates actually look like:

My second card is made using Spellbinders S5-393 Tiffany lavaliere Etched Dies Vinatge Treasures by Becca Feeken.

Here we have so many combinations of background and layers.
I used light green and creme colours with extra gold. I decorated this card with handmade flowers using the smallest dies of Spellbinder S4-995 Cinch and Go V Etched Dies Vinatge Treasures by Becca Feeken. Tinny flowers are so cute. I added some pearls too and word "Thank You".


These plates are available right now on the Spellbinders website —–> HERE
