Very Polite And Olde Worlde At VSC

Vintage Stamping Challenges has a challenge theme this month of ‘Olde Worlde’.  This means we would love to see whatever floats your boat with old or Victoriana.   I am sure my grandchildren think Andrew and myself are ‘Olde Worlde’ … positively ancient looking in their eyes.

Christine picked the theme for this month and I went with an extremely polite looking gentleman’s card where they are taking their dogs for a stroll.  Don’t you just love the hats and the way they used to doff them at each other as they passed.

Hasn’t anyone told that dog that it’s bad to smoke!!!!


You can find the stamps used from Flonzcrafts here.  More scrummy close up pics of the background stamping, inking, stencilling and masking off.  Used a sentiment which came from the Studio 490 set of stamps.


I really hope that you can join us for this month’s challenge.  To enter just click Mr Linky at the bottom of the VSC web page and maybe it could be you who wins the $20 from Flonz’s store.

Please visit the DT’s blogs for more inspiration and also it would be nice to leave them some love.

    I really love this stamp set and these two dogs hahaha! Fabulous take on this new challenge Shirl, this is gorgeous. I don’t forget that I have to play more with my beautiful Flonzcraft stamps I won some time ago, and since Christine is also part of your team now (also a lovely follower and friend of mine), I can’t escape LOL!! 😀 It will be a pleasure, your challenges remain on my list of favourite challenges. 🙂 Hugs Coco xxx

    It’s not just your grandchildren Shirley, ours are the same and to their peril occasionally mention ‘the olden days’ when asking us a question. As I tell them 39 in the head and staying that way.

    Love your very classy looking gentleman’s card and that bulldog is the perfect finishing touch.

    I am tickled by your choice of stamps and that mutual “salutation” you’ve orchestrated. Great minds… I also own this Chronology stamp which along with the stencilling makes a beautifully Olde Worlde background. You’ve rocked my challenge Shirley!

    Oh so proper and full of vintage charm! Love the design and of course the added doggies! I think all grandkids think that way!!!! Hugs!
