'It Blomcke' card

And here is the card I made with the digital scrapbook overlay I posted yesterday. I sprayed a bit of gold paint on it and embellished the card with pearls,  a nice bow and did the cross stitch with my sewing machine. I think that enhanced the vintage look of it even more.

A digital vintage style overlay freebie and brush freebie

Since the weather is very cloudy today I made a digital brush and overlay for use in my digital scrapbooking projects.
The text I used is a quote of a poem by a Frisian author of the 19th century, Rein Baukes Windsma (1801-1862).

I 'll try and translate it for you:

The small flower

Lovely little flower! Oh! Your fragrance smells so sweet
What a nice color you have indeed!
Your red cheeks smile at me
so friendly, so happy and glad:
so beautiful in bloom for all to see!

Summer bouquet on a card


Since it 's summer I made a colourful card with Spellbinders Heirloom die cut and used several papers and ribbons, buttons and embellishments. I like this card very much, it's full of colour and vibrant like summer and the vintage look of the card is still there, I think.

Another birthday card vintage style in blue and gold


Since I had some scraps left I made another birthday card. This time in blue, white and gold tones.

A birthday card and a printable vintage photo freebie

Hallo there!

This birthday card is for a dear friend of mine who loves music.
I used plain Kraft card stock for the base of the double A5 card. I used some patterned papers from my own stock (don't know anymore where I got it) and used spellbinders card creator 'Heirloom legacy' to die cut  and emboss white card stock. I distressed the white die cuts with Ranger distress 'vintage photo' and 'tattered rose'. Oh, and I used a few Maja papers as well. The flowers were handmade earlier, so I glued those on, and added buttons, lace and a nice old illustration of a banjo and one with the text 'Happy Birthday' as embellishments.

I inherited an old photo album with a lot of late 19th century and early 20th century photo's. This picture of a couple of musicians was also in the album. I reckon these youngsters of approximately 1909 decided to dress up as foreign musicians to take part  in a parade of a rural festival in the north of Friesland.  Although they look very serious, it must have been fun!
