Ancient Ornaments with Blockhead Stamps

Hi Dreamers!
I have been away for a few days.  My poor dear husband has pneumonia and has been pretty sick.   I snuck in a few hours here and there to make a few things and do a bit more organizing in my studio room.  I picked up a few more containers for markers.  On today's card, I used  stamps from Blockheads Paper Arts to make this dramatic vintage card.

Stamp: Ancient Ornaments from Blockheads  (the other larger stamp is from a retired Blockheads sheet)
Ink: Mushroom Adirondack
Distress Inks: Bundled Sage and Vintage Photo
CS: dark green, black, kraft, and cream
Old potato bag--the netty kind


  • Make a card from dark green CS
  • Lay a netty potato bag on top of the card
  • Apply Bundled Sage DI by pouncing an applicator tool over the netty bag.  (Wipe ink off bag with a rag)
  • Distress edges of card with Vintage Photo DI

  • Stamp the two images with Mushroom Adirondack ink on kraft and cream CS
  • Layer each with black CS
  • Add to card front


  • Stamp the Ancient Ornament again on the inside on cream CS
I will stamp a sentiment on the inside later; when I use the card.  I will send it to someone who likes vintagey things.   

I will be back later with some photos of my garden.  And, some pretty cool cards made with Lost Coast Design stamps.  See you then!!  Love ya.

  1. So sorry to hear your husband's unwell - hope he's at least on the road to recovery.

    Lovely elegant stamps, and a really great card.
