Hi Stamping Friends!
Today I'm sharing a couple of swap cards featuring the pretty Posted For You stamp set and cool Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch. My previous post focused on the birds image from the stamp set and today's cards spotlight the "LOVE" image. It reminds me of the many "love" stamps that have been issued throughout the years. I love the vintage collage look of both of these cards, too. So cool!

Melissa's Posted For You Sending Love Card
I love how Melissa Davies used many elements to create a cool collage design on her swap card. Check it out!
Background Basics—Melissa started with a 5-1/4" x 4" piece of Very Vanilla. She stamped the special delivery "cancel" stamp in Misty Moonlight in the top right, then flicked some Misty Moonlight ink onto the background. She embossed the layer with the Tasteful Textile Folder before adhering it onto a Night of Navy card base.
Layered Elements—Next, Melissa layered 1/2" strips of Designer Series Paper and dry embossed sheets that are found in the Boho Indigo Product Medley Kit. She topped that with a 2-1/8" x 1-1/2" piece of Very Vanilla as a foundation for the postage stamp. She stamped the Posted For You image in Night of Navy ink onto Very Vanilla, punched it with the Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch and popped it up with Dimensionals.
Sweet Sentiment—Melissa stamped the Posted For You greeting in White Craft Ink onto a 3" x 1/2" piece of Misty Moonlight and popped that up, too.
Finishing Touches—The card is finished with loops of Flowers For Every Season Misty Moonlight Bakers Twine and several Rhinestone Jewels.

Swap Card Created By Rhonda Bassler
Rhonda's Posted For You Pocket Card
I received this Posted For You swap card from Rhonda Bassler and I love the cool design and vintage décor!
Background Basics—Rhonda's card begins with a Crumb Cake card base, scored at the 1-1/2" mark and folded it back, tearing the edge off for a distressed look. She randomly stamped with the Posted For You floral image in Crumb Cake and the Comfort & Hope graph image in Seaside Spray all over the card front and folded-back panel. To create the pocket, she stapled the card closed under the flap, then added a torn strip of Seaside Spray and adhered that flap in place to hide the staples.
Pocket Card—The 3-3/4" x 5" Very Vanilla pocket card fits neatly into the pocket Rhonda created. It's adorned with a sweet pull-tab.
Pull Tab—Rhonda punched out a Seaside Spray Label Me Lovely shape, stamped it with the Posted For You image in Seaside Spray ink and folded it over the card to create a pull tab. It's tied with some Linen Thread before stapled into place.
Postage Stamp Trio—Rhonda stamped the Posted For You floral image and LOVE image onto three Rectangle Postage Stamp shapes in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them in with Old Olive and Seaside Spray Stampin' Blends Markers. She gave them a vintage look by sponging all the edges with Crumb Cake and Soft Suede inks and stamping them with the "cancel" image. They are all popped up with Dimensionals.
Sweet Sentiment—She finished by stamping the Posted For You sentiment in Memento Black onto Seaside Spray and punching it out with the Classic Label Punch. It's sponged as well, then adhered to the bottom postage stamp. What a lovely "throwback" collage look! It reminds me of many cards I created when I first began stamping back in 2003.
Do you enjoy the vintage and collage looks?
