Vintage Heirlooms

TIP: Cut out your frame prior to running it through the die cutting machine.

I am so happy to see vintage cards making a comeback! This is one style that really drew me into creating cards over 15 years ago! When the new catalog was unveiled at On Stage, I knew this would be first on my list! The Woven Heirlooms stamp set has some sincere statements and some distressed elements to compliment any card or project!

The whole Woven Threads suite is just gorgeous! AND you can order it with one code!!! The Woven Threads DSP has some beautiful patterns that are distressed! They paired some new In Colors into some unique combinations! I used a more monocromatic look for my card. The sentiment is stamped with Crumb Cake on to the paper with the vintage muslin looking design. (I tried to used Sahara Sand ink, but it was too faint). I taped it behind the frame I made from the Heirloom Frames Dies & 3D Embossing Folders combo.

TIP: Use the side of your Blends to color the Faceted Gems to be sure you don’t fray the tip.

To create the flower, I stamped the flower from the Floral Essesnce stampe set in Rococo Rose onto the DSP that had the Rococo Rose distressed design. I used the coordinating Perrennial Flower punch and the Leaf Punch for a quick flower embellishment. I then used the new Rococo Rose Dark Blend to color in the gem.

The 1/2″ Rococo Rose Gathered ribbon looks soooooo pretty in person!! It really pops off of this card! I used a strip of SNAIL and then pressed a little down, then folded a little to the right, and pressed down again to create the rouching!

I hope you enjoyed this card-I know that the girls in my stamp club loved it!

Simply Enjoy Life

final-10

We just had our quarterly team meeting and we love to do a card SWAP!  This was one that I did using the Enjoy Life stamp set!  I love the sentiments and positive affirmations that are included in this set! It has so many possibilities using the stamps a silhouette with a sunset, an action technique with the bike, or just a simple card like this one!

To create this card I stamped Pool Party onto Pool Party cardstock using the new Crackle Paint background stamp! I love this background stamp!  Then, I ran a piece of Very Vanilla through the Big Shot with the Corrugated Embossing Folder to add more texture.  Once that was adhered down, I stamped my flower/grass stamp with Early Espresso in the bottom right corner. Next I added the butterflies, the sentiment, and the Braided Linen thread! All done!  Oh, wait…..I did Wink the Butterflies!

Tufted Petals

watermarked3(2018-07-03-1323)

Wow!  The Petal Promenade Suite is just gorgeous!  I can picture wedding/anniversary cards, birthday cards, and so much more with the Petal Promenade DSP!  The flowers are so soft and blend so well together!  The set, Beautiful Promenade, and it’s matching Beautiful Layers Thinlits help you create stunning works of art with minimal effort!

watermarked4(2018-07-03-1323)

I love that the dies include an envelope liner so your card looks even more special for the recipient!  There are so many fun shapes and images that will meet a lot of your card making needs!

I stamped the inside of the flower with Petal Pink and the outside part of the flower with Fresh Fig.  Next, I cut a 2″ by 3″ piece of Fresh Fig and ran the tag edge on each short end to create a fun tag! There are a couple of border type stamps that add flair to your creation!  I also added some Tea Room Combo ribbon tousled behind the flower. I finished it off with some Wink of Stella, a sentiment, and some leaves!

Vintage Love

img_1584

This card uses the Sealed with Love stamp set!  I wanted to make a non-traditional card with it.  I haven’t made a vintage style card in a while, and these new Lace Doilies are just beautiful! I love the dandelion seeds in the background, it adds that light touch!

img_1585

I also wanted it to have a soft pallet, so I chose Sahara Sand as the card base. You have to get the Love Notes Framelits!  They are so fun and just look at how adorable the border is!
