Do you like vintage as much as I do? … my March swap

March 18, 2011

I have liked this set since the minute I saw it in the new catalog in July.  I immediately purchased it and it's been sitting in my drawer ever since.  Poor thing!  I knew I wanted to do something good.. just not sure what.

I noticed that this punch perfectly fit the chairs.  I didn't think that 3 same chairs would be appealing, and thought that using all 3 single chairs would be to eclectic… but I love it!  I planned to color the chairs and use some brownish designer paper…  BUT, after I stamped them in black, I really liked their simplicity.  I knew the perfect designer paper… the neutrals (BLACK) pad.

The project was nice, but something was missing…  I added the ribbon.  That sure helped.  Then I added the tiny tag and really liked it.  The plan was to use a few layered punch outs for the words, but wanted some type of bling.  Hodgepodge hardward came to my rescue.  Now I really like it!

The edge punch along the bottom of the chairs is a perfect finishing touch.  I wanted the project to remain vintage and not too frilly so I didn't have too much of the punched edge white showing.

Happy Stampin!
