Shabby Tea Room #25 Challenge

Week #25 - 'Old Meets New'

For this week's challenge, we'd love to see you all create a card or project with something OLD and something NEW! Basically, the sky's the limit as long as you tell us in your blog post which items were NEW to you and which items were OLD from your stash! Have fun with this one, folks!!

I had a few hours… and decided to make a card… and needed to make it for something special… so I went looking… Shabby Tea Room… how special is that!!!! So I grabbed some paper and started to play…

I started off with a resist treatment… to get a nice layered look on the paper… then mounted that a few times… added some trims… and some Paper flowers… and tag… and then added some seam binding… that was my Mother In Laws… from years ago… I can’t tell you how old it is… but the wrapper fell off when I picked it up… does that tell you anything… The antique lace… I bought a whole bolt of it for $6.00 about 35 years ago… that was a lot of money… but the lace was so very pretty… and I had to have it… I still have about 5 years left… and have used it very sparingly over the years…


Card Stock; White; chocolate and Limeade (all new )

Inks: Ranger (New )

Paints: Twinkling H20’s (All New)

Trims: All are old… (the antique lace I bought over 35 years ago!!! And the ribbon over 4-5 years ago…. all OLD!!! )

Flowers: Paper Prima ( New)

Stamp: Stamping Up; Inkadinkadoo; Misc (New)
