Twisted Tuesday Time!

   Tuesday once again!!  Today's Twisted Tuesday challenge is to make a Vintage card and the twist is to use stripes somewhere on your card! Once again, another great challenge by our twist-y coordinator, Melina!   Here is my Tuesday challenge card:

I think this is one of the coolest stamp sets that Stampin Up! has ever come out with!  Sadly, this set is retired.  I just love it though!  It stamps so clean and chairs! LOL

To make my stripes I inked up my EF with Soft suede...just ran my ink pad right over it!  I must admit that I held my breath when I did it, but it washed perfectly clean and ink free when I was done so I will use that technique again! :)

Really cool images! I used Basic Black, Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake hoping for a vintage-y type feel.  I kept the card simple without loading too much on it.  

Ok, your turn!  Head on over to Twisted Tuesdays and link up your stripe-y vintage creation!  I look forward to seeing what you come up with.  Be sure to check out the wonderful cards made by the other DT members too!

Love this card. The colors, stamp choice and layout. Just my style!

I have wondered about the EF inking - now I know - thanks!

Super job!

Really cute card. Love the vintage/shabby chic look to it. Great idea for the EF.

Very cool card! I have an idea in mind for the Twisted Tuesday to find some time to do it!

You really captured the vintage feel!

Such a great card. I love your stripes. I have yet to try inking an embossing folder yet. Great job with the challenge.

Feels like you should be sitting on the front porch with a nice cool breeze. Very cute card! Love how you did the stripes!

Wonderful card! I love the design of the chairs and with all three sitting empty, it really conveys an "I miss you" feeling. Your stripes look wonderfully rustic!
