Vintage Kids

I recently received this Collage Sheet from Ignacio at Nicecrane Designs and couldn't wait to create with these cute images.  I haven't decided if I want to make these creations into a 'SET' for sell at my next craft show or, just show them individually.  Heck, I might just keep them for myself they are so cute!

The collage sheet is titled "Vintage Cute Kids"

 I have used the sketch from the current challenge at Perfect Sentiments Challenge and the sentiment is from a Hero Arts stamp set.  Design paper is from My Mind's Eye - Lime Twist and the border is a Martha Stewart punch.  

 The design on this card is a variation on that same challenge sketch at Perfect Sentiments Challenges.  For the challenge you need to use THANK YOU ... but I thought this Hero Arts sentiment worked better with this image.
 
The background for this card was made using the Sizzix (TH) brickwall embossing folder on white paper then sponging over it using TH Peeled Paint and Frayed Burlap distress inks.

 I'm NOT an animal lover  ...  but how cute is this little kitty!
I thought this scrap of dp matched great with the flowers on her #5.  Sorry, don't remember the mfg.  possibly K&Co.  It's a 2 sided paper.  A combination of paper flowers & prima flowers ... along with the MS leaf punch created the embellishment.

 I actually had this base card w/MS vine border laying on my worktable from sometime through the holidays.  I simply added the image, sentiment & MS butterfly.  Quick & Easy.

Last by not least ... how adorable is this little couple??
'Water' dp from JoAnn's makes the perfect backdrop for these cuties.  I just HAD to use the Morex Corp. Sweet Petites polka dot ribbon (which matches her little swim suit) as my accent.  The dolphin stickers came in a $1 beach pack from JoAnn's (had them for years) and my sentiment if from the See D's stamp set called Fun In The Sun.

There are actually eight (8) images on these collage sheets to create with and they are pre-colored (that's a time saver in itself).  Pop on over to Nicecrane Designs and check out all the fun & unique images, collage sheets, designer paper, etc. that Ignacio has available.
