Tea Shoppe for Retro Rubber

Tea Shoppe, Something Borrowed

Do you remember using brads way back in the day? I am pretty sure that I had them in every color you could imagine, especially  bright, primary colors to go with all of the photos that I was putting in my scrapbooks. Well, when I cleaned my craft room a couple of years ago, I donated them with all kinds of other craft supplies that I no longer used. I really did enjoy them but Stampin’ Up!’s Candy Dots are just so much more convenient and coordinate with my supplies now. I really love that!

Retro Rubber has a very fun challenge for you – get those brads out and use them again! Even after donating my old non-SU brads, I still couldn’t get rid of my SU Copper Hodgepodge Hardware. They have a wonderful antique feel to them and although I don’t use them, I just couldn’t quite let them go. I am sure you have supplies like that yourself!

I really loved this stamp set and still remember the first time I saw it. Wow! I just HAD to have it. I love all things that are coffee and tea related and drink hot drinks all year long. This stamp set always needed a DSP that had a vintage look so I brought out the Something Borrowed DSP from the Occasions catalog and think they go together perfectly.

  5. A most excellent card! I agree with Katy – vintage all the way. I love the copper brads. I am a brad hoarder – so I cannot get rid of my brads. One of my subscribers told me she didn’t have that disease yet! LOL! Lovely card my friend!

  6. Debbie your combination of older stamps and newer products makes for this perfectly fabulous retro card. I love the chic romantic elegance that you achieve with the lace. Great use of the brads!!!
