Day 4 Previews: Vintage Backgrounds and Masculine Messages

Good evening!

Thanks for checking in on me on this last day of Previews for April's release with GinaK Designs!  Let's jump right in and talk about the first stamp set I'm showcasing on my card above.  Nina Brackett has done it again by designing a gorgeous must have stamp set called Vintage Backgrounds.  On my card below, I used 4 images from her set - you'll have to let me know if you can spot them all: 2 on the front and 2 on the inside.

I also used her coordinating Bright & Grungy Polka Dots digital paper for the star punch outs - isn't the yellow a nice pop of color against the Turquoise Sea and Red Hot cardstocks?  And, look - more sewing!  I used a sentiment from Asela's Sew Pretty stamp set to finish it off...

Card Details
Stamps: Sew Pretty and Vintage Backgrounds
Cardstock: GinaK; Bright and Grungy Dots
Ink: Memento and white craft

Other: Spellbinder's oval die; sewing machine; embossing folder; buttons; embroidery floss; Marvy Star punches

********** Masculine Messages: Free with Three stamp set *********

The last new stamp set for this month is the Free with Three sentiment set called Masculine Messages.  But, the name may be a bit misleading since I have made several cards with this set that are gender neutral or even feminine in nature.  The sentiments Gina choose to include in the set are some of my all time favorite ones!

I used a journaling card and sticker from October Afternoon's Fly a Kite collection as the backdrop for this adorable message...
