Stampin' UP! Shabby Chic Style

Back with my third installation as a Guest Designer at The Friday Mashup J We were given a cute sketch and sweet theme this week. I was not totally sure what “Shabby Chic” meant but after some clarification from one of the lovely design team members I was off and running.

I accidently came upon this set when I made a mistake on an order I made and to be honest it is one of my favourite sets now. Though it was not really my style (or so I thought) I have used it a number of times and I am always happy with the results!!!

My Challenge:
1.    Make a project using the "Sketch". 
2.    Or Make a "Shabby Chic / Vintage" project. 
3.    Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Shabby Chic/Vintage project using the Sketch".

My Card:
Tiny Tips:
Paper Rosettes!
1.    Cut a 1 ¼” x 12” piece of card stock or designer paper
2.    Trim along one edge with punch desired
3.    Using your score tool, score along every ¼”
4.    Then mountain/valley fold along each score line
5.    With a strong adhesive glue the two ends together (overlapping the mountain/valley folds
6.    Punch out a circle piece of cardstock (which you will not see)
7.    Pull together at the center and use a STRONG adhesive to glue your punched out circle to the backside of your paper rosette
8.    Decorate as desired

Thanks for stoppin’ by!


  1. Lovely vintage card and super rosette. x

  2. I always love those old typewriters for a vintage card... plus you can't go wrong with First Edition.

  3. Love it!! You are totally rocking Vintage in this card. I love the colors you used. That pop of pink adds that little extra something. Great choice of stamp set too.

  4. I love that typewriter and the rosette! The distressed edges and pearls are perfect! Great job on this one for sure.
