I'll admit that this set had me stumped at first. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do. I started by stamping the vintage dress form onto a page from an encyclopedia. I took a copper sharpie marker and outlined the dress form. I then stamped the flowers from another MFP set called Pretty Pears. I water colored the flowers and added dazzling diamonds glitter to the centers of the flowers.  The butterfly is from another MFP set called Bearded Iris.  The sentiment is from MFP set called Roses

Check out what the other designers did with this set.


  1. So very pretty and I like the Vintage look.

  2. Love how you have made the dress form the centrepiece to your card MariLynn. The pearls and bow are the perfect accompaniment.

  3. Your card came out wonderfully. I love the layers and extra details - it is beautiful! Hugz

  4. I love how you added this Vintage fashion set with other stamps and stamped on the encyclopedia paper, turning it into something completely fresh and new look.
    Love this fab design with peeking a doily with gorgeous butterfly and bling!!!

  5. For someone who didn't know what she wanted to do you sure OUT-DID yourself!

    Your card is absolutely gorgeous and elegant! I love the color you used on the dress form and the added florals on each side. And, the butterfly and pearls are so very lovely.
