12 Days of Christmas / Halloween in July - Day 6

Hi! Hope you are all enjoying a wonderful Sunday! Getting this post up this afternoon as I am trying to recover from the County Fair. I think the Fried Kool-Aid may have gotten to me. LOL! So today we are on Day 6 and at our half way point. Wow! It's been so fun sharing all the new Stampendous goodness with you. Today's feature is on a lovely new image called Cling Postcard Pretty and is it ever so pretty. The image really does sparkle with lots of crystal snow glitter on the finished card. I just could not capture it so much in my photo. WOW! I am really loving all these gorgeous vintage images. Creating for this season's catalog was so fun as I got to design out of my normal comfort zone. As you can tell my style is very cutesy with lots of bright colors, but I am completely head over heels for all things vintage. I literally squealed with delight when I saw all these wonderful vintage images and had tons of ideas racing through my head. I think the most fun I had designing with the vintage images was that the distressed look was more freeing. I could crumple, stain and tear my papers. It was great getting my hands all inky. SO FUN! I also water colored many of my images. My sweet friend, Sandra MacLean, helped me so much with some great tips. What she does with watercolors is simply phenomenal, so you will have to visit her blog to see what I mean. Thank you all for stopping by and visiting me today. I hope you love these vintage images too. I will be sharing more of the everyday vintage images with you in August, so stayed tuned for those as well.

Thanks for visiting and Have a Stampendous Day!
