Introducing Vintage Touch Collection

All things vintage & rustic have made a comeback in the past year, especially when it comes to shabby chic.  I personally have been finding myself attracted to the warm, homey feeling this type of look provides.  This month we are releasing a collection of products that will help you to add your own vintage touch to all of your creations easily and affordably!

We will be releasing two new neutral cardstocks to add to our Paper Basics line-up, Rustic White and Rustic Cream.

Rustic white

Rustic White falls right in between Stamper's Select White and Vintage Cream.  It features small flecks of natural fibers & flecks, giving it just a hint of a recycled nature.  This cardstock was hand-picked by me, because I have always, ALWAYS wanted a cardstock like this!  The flecks & fibers are small enough that they don't end up interfering with a stamped image, yet it has a bit more character and warmth than our regular white.  It reminds me a bit of birch bark!

Rustic cream

Rustic Cream is just a tad more rich than Vintage Cream and it features the same recycled look, with small fibers and flecks filtered throughout.  It is so luxurious, reminding me a bit of muslin fabric that people sometimes use as the backing on old quilts.  It's almost like having a cream colored version of our popular classic kraft cardstock!  It's just fabulous!


Now, we can't present a collection to you without some new fibers!  We have had numerous requests for thin twines to use with our vintage buttons.  We searched high and low and found a product that we are head over heels for!  And we know you will be too once you try it!  It will be available in two beautiful shades, Rustic Jute and Rustic Cream.  An incredible 20 yards of this button twine is wound around a lovely wooden spool for storage and will retail for $5.  Just another basic supply that you will now be able to order through Papertrey Ink!

Nothing goes better with all these vintage products than some beautifully rich wooden buttons!  These buttons are actually made from all-natural coconut shells.  As you can see from the above photo, one side is polished smooth, bringing out the rich, warm colors of the button.  The reverse side is unfinished and can be used to achieve a totally different look!

Rustic button sizes

Unlike our other button collection, only TWO button types will be included in these bags, large and small (shown here).  However, the bags will still contain the same number of buttons as previous releases and be sold at the same price ($5).


The Vintage Touch: Tea Dye Duo ink is the last item to round out the collection, which I described in full HERE.  And don't worry, I will be featuring a step by visual tutorial before release day to show you a bit more about it!

So, what do you think?  Isn't all of this new product just fabulous!  I am really excited to see what you all think the first time you start integrating these supplies into all of your projects.  I know they will bring an element of warmth and homemade goodness to everything you create!  Enjoy!

    I’m totally excited about the new rustic cardstocks! I’m not really a fan of kraft because the color is too dark for me–but the flecks are so nice. So I’m thrilled to see this cardstock in lighter colors but still with flecks! I can’t wait to see it in real life!

    The thin rustic jute and twine are a great idea- I often want that look but can’t get my thick jute string through the button holes- PTI think of everything!

  • 23

    Outstanding! I usually don’t have a problem finding buttons, but jute seems to come in only 1-2 colors or thicknesses here. I’m so excited that now I have some choices!

    I always love seeing the new colors and accessories each month. The twine, buttons and tea dye set are a must.

    Thank you for bringing these new and unique crafting items to market. It shall be a happy day on the 15th, however, a depressing day when it comes to my VISA balance. *wink*
