Anne Taintor Inspiration

If you like those vintage women cards with snarky sayings, then you like Anne Taintor...she was probably the first to start them. I think they're funny and I got caught up in making them for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop this summer.

Here's another. I promise it's the last one for this hop (I have two up at a2z Scrapbooking and one more from Friday).



Here's a close-up for the saying, I just googled coffee quotes and picked a few of my faves for these cards, typed them, printed them and then trimmed them out. I thought they looked like they were friendly, but that lady on the right is trying to tell her co-worker to calm the heck down until she's had her morning brew. This image is from the a2z Scrapbooking store and called Hero Arts Make Your Own Sewing Fashion.


I colored them with Prismacolor pencils in the summery red, white and blue colors, and added some rose ribbon trim to the corner. It's Tim Holtz ribbon.

Giveaway: Leave a comment on any or all of my Coffee Hop posts this week here on my blog (you can leave one comment per post for more chances to win) and you'll be entered to win either two Hero Arts stencils (for overseas friends) or this Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle die set (for U.S. buds). 


Commenting closes July 1 at 11:59 pm EST.





Happy Hopping!

I am just loving your cards! This sentiment is
funny and oh so true. I would die without my
coffee, but others would have to die first. lol

Oooh, love this vintage design and the snarky comment made me chuckle. My mom made most of my dresses all the way through junior high so this sewing pattern inspired card is pure nostalgia for me!

I remember those dresses.
I used to wear them and I could
fit in the size of these (wouldn't
happen now though). Great
card to bring back memories.
thanks for sharing.
