365 Cards Vintage Week Blog Hop

Welcome to our blog hop, which is all about the vintage style!

When 365 Cards Monday designer, Gloria Stengel offered to share her Graphic 45 goodies, I thought we needed to do it up right.  So you'll need to go hopping to earn a chance at a great prize.  If you want to know more about the prize packages, you'll have to check back in with us at 365 Cards during the week to get all the details.

There will be 3 separate drawings at the end of the week, and one way to earn a chance to win is to comment on all 11 designers' posts for the blog hop.  Some of the designers may ask you a specific question - but I would just like you to leave me a comment at the end of this post. 

Here is my card for the Sunday sketch:



I had such fun playing with the goodies that Gloria sent to me.  I would have to say that the vintage look is not typical for me, but I was up for the challenge, especially with G45 paper and embellies!

So there is another way that you'll earn a chance to win a prize.  The 1st ten blogs on the hop will be giving you ingredients to a Card Recipe challenge that will posted on Saturday, the 27th.  Each of us will be using a specific design element that will be included in the recipe.  My element is Paper Piercing.  So here's a close-up if the inside of my card where I did the piercing:


Now that you've started your hop here, you can move on to Amy's blog, Tsuruta Designs to leave a comment and grab another ingredient for that card recipe.

We're so glad you're hopping along with us, because it will be a great week of fun challenges.  Also, if you want all the specific details, just hop over to the 365 Cards Extra Blog.

Challenge indeed. I haven't done vintage or paper piercing. But as always I love 365 Cards for making me step out of my comfort zone and learn new things that end up being new favorites. Love the Tri Fold cards now...where I was once scare to try it. :)

Goblinf said...

Good grief Pam! I woke up this morning and thought aha too much snow to go out, today is the day I do the 365 challenge! But not only is it Vintage week (never done a vintage card, not quite sure what they are) but it's also a Blog Hop recipe!!!! And there I was hoping for something easy. Hilarious!!!! This is going to take me hours....
