Something old, something new...

Happy Tuesday, crafty peeps! Ready for another installment from Chupa?
The theme of The Shabby Tea Room's challenge this week (TSTR25) is "Old Meets New", and it gave me a jumpstart on this one:


Supplies: cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Peach Parfait); paper: Basic Grey (Green At Heart); stamp: Papertrey Ink (Turning A New Leaf, Mega Mixed Messages), Hero Arts; ink: Versa Color (Green Tea, Cinnamon), ColorBox (Black); decorative chalks: Pebbles; black pen; border punch: EK Success; twill ribbon available here; crocheted flower from PixiePetals; button; string: Papertrey Ink; corrugated cardboard; sewing machine

I used several new things: corrugated cardboard that I picked at Paperific on Sturday; and some PTI stuff that came in happy mail a couple of days ago. The rest is my oldies but goldies *wink*

I used that cardboard piece, to suit the TLC288 ~ Recycled Cardboard Boxes challenge. You know how I like everything that adds dimension in a unique way, so this was right up my alley.
The sketch is SSSC83 - swoon!


Thanks so much for looking! xxx


  1. Gorgeous!! I love those large scallops!

  2. Hi Chupa!

    Very pretty card!! Love the dimensions as well, very nice how it adds some layers! The paper is soooo cute! I have it as well, but because it's quite 'busy' paper, I didn't really know how to use it, but this is a fab idea! Looks very, very pretty this way! Looooove this card!

    Hugs, Wendy
