Scraps Blog Hop, Day 1 7/9/11

Welcome to the Scraps Blog Hop...  If you came from Laverne at http://acraftershaven.blogspot​.com/, you're in the right place. If you just happened upon my blog and would like to play along, start at the beginning at www.craftycardgallery.blogspot​.com

The purpose of this hop is to help you use up some of your scraps. I'm sure you've got your fair share - I know I do! You'll see 30 talented crafters coming up with unique ways to use their scraps. Some may share tips on how they store their scraps as well!
Be sure to visit all the blogs and leave comments, as there will be a grand prize, a $50 credit to the Designs on Cloud 9 store,
http://www.designsoncloud9.com/ sponsored by Michelle of Designs on Cloud 9. To win the grand prize, you must comment on and become a follower of all the blogs. 

Be sure to come back both days to increase your chances of winning!


So, I'm new to vintage, and I had made a card a while back with a car on it- the rest of the printout was a bunch of cars - I got the image here: http://www.vectorforall.com/2009/vintage-cars-free-clipart/ and had only used the large image.  I kept the rest because I thought it might be useful some day... (which was good since my printers have gone kaput!)
Not knowing what to do with a bunch of little cars, I started looking for inspiration!
So I found this sketch:
http://www.owhstarsandstamps.org/2010/10/s-sketch-challenge-39.html - I realized that the Operation Write Home Sketches are a great way to use scraps!
So I cut out the images, used chalk ink on the edges.  I also cut really small dark brown as a backing.  All of the paper was scrap from the original car card.  My favorite part of the card is that the copper circles are just the circles from a strip of paper cut out with a regular old paper hole puncher!  But I thought they added a lot! (You can see just a bit of that paper behind the cars..)

Here's what I started with:














As you can see, my work area is a MESS!!!
So here's my card:

And since I had car images left over, I put one inside.  Since this card has no glitter, I think I will send it to Operation Write Home!

If you're new to the Vintage Heartfelt Design Team Blog, be sure to become a follower. The blog will feature vintage cards and projects by our talented design team.  There will be a vintage Christmas In July blog hop on 7/15... Be sure to come back for it!  It should definitely help you get in the Christmas spirit!

So what's a hop without some candy?

The prize is two packages of stickers.... No picture tonight, I want to get some sleep! :)

  18. The vintage cars are beautifully done!! Blogger won't let me become a follower -- I hate Blogger issues!!!!!!! Pooh. I'll stop back another day, and hopefully they will be resolved by then. I wish I could just purchase a blogger membership and be done with the "issues!!"
