A Bunch of Hearts and Vintage Birds - Oh My

I know that Title made you think what the heck is going on. After typing away I started to babble about vintage stamps so.....

How cute is this heart bouquet stamp I picked up at Michael's dollar spot! YES I know I do love those areas of Michael's, Target etc. But you have to admit they have great finds! I used a basic pink for the base and the patterned paper I cut as corners, like photo corners. Yes that is a doily! I found a pack of heart ones I thought would look cute on a card. I added red stickles to the heart to make it glimmer! I don't think this one came out spectacular or anything but cute. I figured I'd share anyhow. :-)
Yesterday I stopped by a local Scrapbook store to find they have Crafty Secrets Clear Art Stamps. So I picked up a set. Their images are definitely more vintage than cutesy but this one has to do with Coffee and I loved it. I think Miss Lauren posted a cute card with this set awhile back. At one point (before blogging days) I liked the vintage images so I do have a bunch actually so I'm thinking I should pull some out and see what I can do. LOLOL. Here is a basic sample of a set from Oxford Impressions that I purchased awhile back..... I just loved this bird and the other bird images in the set.

What do you guys think about the vintage sets? It's not a bad thing to mix it up once in awhile right? Humm..... I'll have to see what I come up with. A little bit of vintage with a little bit of cute, it's art anything is possible right?
