Hello and thanks so much for visiting! I am back today with a card made for the new theme at Allsorts challenge. This week Wendy is hosting and she picked the theme of "A Touch of Vintage". I hope you can join us for a chance to win. This week our prize comes from Craft Stash.

I LOVE this beautiful tea pot and tea cup stamp from PSX. I thought it would be perfect for Wendy's theme. As most of you probably know, PSX is no longer in business but this stamp is occasionally found on eBay (where I purchased mine). As I type this, it's listed HERE and HERE (for a little bit less). It is item # K2883, if you're patient, you might occasionally find it at a lower price.
I stamped the image using Walnut Stain Distress ink, then heat embossed with ultra fine clear embossing powder. A Tim Holtz stencil from this set was used on the background with Victorian Velvet distress ink, moving the stencil around the image to avoid stencilling over the image for the most part. An old Stampin Up background stamp and again Victorian Velvet ink was used for the french script. (This stamp can usually be found on ebay as well, I've had mine for many many years and it's one of those stamps I'll keep forever.
Walnut Stain ink and embossing powder was used again to heat emboss the sentiment from the Penny Black set Happy Wishes. After distressing and inking the edges I added the cotton crochet lace trim (Options) and used my Zig Detailer with some Victorian Velvet ink to add a little bit of color to the image. Heavy weight white card stock was used as a card base. The complete card measures approx. 5.25 x 5.25 inches.
I love how this card turned out. Here is another card I made using this stamp. I think I like today's card more, but how fun to revisit my first card as a DT member for Allsorts :-)
