Glitz Design - going vintage!

Hello and welcome to my first Glitz Design post!
I remember after having received the box of goodies from Glitz, I promised myself not to touch anything until my first assignment. It was a tough task, but totally worth it. After eyeing my new toys for a couple of weeks, it's been an utter pleasure to finally cut into those papers, and ink up those stamps! :)
Here's what I prepared... firstly I decided to play with the scrumptious "Hoopla" line. The colours are what makes me especially drawn to it - green & blue together... mmm!



Glitz Design "Hoopla" Papers: Frames, Pipework
Glitz Design "Vintage Love Cherub" Stamp
Glitz Design Tulle
Glitz Design Teeny Alpha Ivory Block

other: recycled kraft cardstock, Papertrey Ink Rustic Cream cardstock; ink: Distress Ink (Frayed Burlap); edge distresser; metal brads; burlap; string; button; butterfly: Collections; glitter glue

I decided to play with the MOJO172 sketch, and paired it with OCC recipe challenge: Thank You card with blue and cream color palette and an addition of metal and vellum. Although I read "or" instead of "and" in the metal & vellum part, and so I'm afraid I don't have vellum... *sigh*

Next up is a card with some goodies from the "Love Nest" collection:



Glitz Design "Love Nest" Papers: Damask, Stripe
Glitz Design Clear Stamps "Distressing"
Glitz Design "Love Nest" Titles Cardstock Stickers
Glitz Design "Scarlett" Stamp

Other: Papertrey Ink Rustic Cream cardstock; ink: Distresss Ink (Frayed Burlap), Papertrey Ink (Tea Dye Duo); sewing machine; lace trim; peach organza ribbon; golden leaf & fabric flower from stash; glitter glue; buttons; string

This time I played with the January SFYTT, and paired it with the gorgeous olours of CR84FN9... I knew I had to give them a go once more!
