PP82 and Fresh Vintage Blossoms

It doesn't seem possible that the terms "Vintage" and "Clean and Simple" can go together. However, I think I accomplished a Clean and Simple Vintage card today with this thank you card.  I had intended on adding more layers, but somehow, it thought it looked better left alone.

The inspiration for this card was this week's Paper Players Challenge, which is a color challenge. You know how much I love those!

My fellow Stampin' Up Demonstrator (and Control Freak) Dawn Olchefske was kind enough to share a video on how to punch the blossom from the Fresh Vintage Stamp Set with the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch. I had to give it a try, and after a couple of attempts, it came out just perfect! You can check out her video tutorial by clicking here. Thanks, Dawn!

This is very cute (I love things in threes) and I knew this image matched this punch, but I had to resort to punching first and lining the stamp up with my SAMJ!!! Great hint from Dawn, and a lovely CAS vintage card from you! Thanks for playing with the Paper Players this week!

This is a fantastic example of CAS vintage! Love the three flowers and a great use for those beautiful brads too!

Such a pretty card, Sandy! Thanks for sharing that link on the punch, too. I really like the decorative brads and the tiny pop of twine trim, too. Thanks so much for joining us this week at the Paper Players! :)
