Taking a 'Vintage' Ride

The Play Date Cafe Color Challenge

Hello and welcome to another BuSy day here at The Open Window!

Today we are revealing 'bits' of two new stamp sets as
It's Day 3 of the New Release Previews for

This first set was designed for TCM by one of my favorite
people on the planet, Nina Bracket of NinaB Designs

It's called 'Vintage Rides' and I just l.o.v.e. it

I used paper from one of my favorite older collections from GCD Studios
appropriately called 'Planes & Trains' and created my prop plane.
I tied the banner on with 'stone' baker's twine from The Twinery.

I used my favorite cloud dies from Lil' Inker Designs
then Embossed and Debossed them with my Cuttlebug dots.
Doing both gives it a variety of textures.

This would be so fun to do for baby cards using boy and girl colors.
I can't wait to use it more!

Next up, is a brand new set created by Jenny Suchin for TCM

'Owl Journaling'

I took a different approach with this set because I am not one to do
journaling, per se.  I know Smash books & Project Life is really on trend,
but I can't find another second in my days right now.

I think this card worked out well though....the images are small, so you
can squeeze them into tiny places and add layers on top of one another.
Love those numbers all created with different inks from A Muse Studio.

This really WAS my To-Do list the day I created the card : )

Make sure you pop by
and check out the fabulous-ness
from all of the designers.

Love the plane flying through the clouds! Great idea for stamping on patterned paper (I get scared!) and the banner is perfect! Love the joke of playing with the stamps to-do list! Very clean and simple.
