Wednesday's Fab Feature "Oh my Darling!"

Hi Everyone!

Today is Wednesday and time for another Fabulous Feature by Ippity!

Today we have our one from our newest release,our Vintage set "Oh my Darling!".

This is such a fun set to work with! What I decided to do was a gift card holder! It is the perfect set to use for a feminine birthday, or a thank you, or even just a random act of kindness for a girlfriend or co-worker!

I found the tutorial for this gift card on Stamp TV originally here.
 The cardstock that I used for the base is GinaK pure luxury Chocolate Chip. I stamped the image on GinaK cream cardstock with Memento peanut brittle and then colored it in lightly with copics ( R000 and R11) I used just a little bit of R01 below in the "cage" area.
 The designer paper is from Graphic 45. I think it is just perfect for this set, so vintage!
 Ribbon is from my stash,and it was the last little bit,which makes me very sad because for some reason I just love this ribbon! I think it is from Maya Road which could explain why I love it so much! LOL
On the inside of the holder I placed the "measuring" tape piece from the set just over a semicircle I cut in the fold where the gift card is placed.It actually made opening the slot easier.  The sentiment is from a co-branded Unity and Cosmo Cricket set called "Get Scrappy With" from the Material Girl line . The image comes with a "stitched" border around it, but it was to large for the area, so I inked up just the words and then drew in my own "stitches"!
I used Nestabilities to cut out my main image on the front as well as for the sentiment.

I hope you like my little project! I think I will do another using this set and this design paper; but this time I am going to put the floral on the outside and the images of the Ladies with their hats,gloves and  dresses on the inside!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Please let me know if  you have any questions about the set or the holder itself. You can e-mail me at Or stop by my facebook page "Get Creative with Ippity" and say Hi! I would love for you to share your work with me and the rest of my followers!

Have a great day!



  1. Mary I love it. I picked up that set (yep you were my Chic) and just now realized it would have made a perfect vintage sympathy card that I had to make for an older gal who recently passed. Geesh where was my head. Now if I'm reading it correctly, the gal and the hand were from a paper line? They go so well together. Although the gal would have been a great addition to the set. Nice job!!!

  2. Oh Thank you Jeanette!
    You are right the gal and the hands were from the paper line graphic 45. It is the Time Nouveau collection "Hey You". I have had it for awhile,so not sure if it is still available.But I really love that line of papers.
    I am sorry for the loss of your Friend. I am sure that was diffucult and always so hard to find the right words.
    Thank you for choosing me again! It really means a lot! I still owe you that something special as well! I am so sorry!It will be in the mail by Monday! My goodness no excuse! Although now it will be a double surprise! ;)
    Have a great weekend! And Thank you again!
