I have been collecting paint chips. I have far too many now, and I can't help myself when I go to Home Depot or other hardware stores. I make a beeline for the paint chip aisle and stuff my purse!
These stamps are just 4 of the 8 in the set called "Les Petites Whimsies" by the artist, Sandra Evertson. I purchased them from Stampington & Co. Stamped them on tones of peachy paint chips.
The sticker letters are Old Typewriter Keys, Nostalgiques (Sticko) by Rebecca Sower. Love them!
The background is done with numerous colours of Distress Inks using the watercolour technique. Tissue tape, and all the background stamps; crack stamp in the corners, dot stamp and harlequin stamp, are all TH. Added photo corners and some pearl bling.
New Year's resolution #2: Use up my paint chip stash!
This card is entered in:

2. Simon wants us to use something old, something new. I thought the stamps were Steampunkish (Old) and the paint chips represent New. Simon Says Stamp and Show: Something Old...Something New
3. The DT over at Crazy 4 Challenges want something new: Crazy 4 Challenges: C4C118 Try or Do Something New
