Vintage Handmade Card

Today I am playing with one of the new Vintage stamp sets from the new Catalog.  This is the Travelers Stamp set wDSCN0274ehich would be great for card making and scrapbooking.  I love the Vintage look of this set. I combined this set with the new Lullaby Designer paper.  The card base is Coastal Cabana.  I used the Delicate Designs embossing folder and large scallop framelit to add a little dimension to the side of the card. The train is stamped with Soft Suede ink on the new Hello Honey card stock.  What a beautiful rich color.  Just a little deeper in shape than Crushed curry. And of course, what is a card without embellishments?  I added a few pearls around the scallop border and along the edge of the stripped banner. The card layout was inspired by this week’s Mojo Monday sketch.  Mojo348Sketch I can’t wait to share more new designs with you from the new catalog! Happy Stamping! signature line-003      

Another Goodbye to Medallion

Today I am showing you a card that I made with the Medallion stamp set from Stampin’ Up!.  This card was for my monthly Stamper’s Club.  They requested vintage scrapbook pages and cards for April’s class. DSCN0202e So the details on this card: The card base is Crumb Cake card stock.  The first layer on this card is a piece of very vanilla card stock that has been stamped with the Medallion stamp in Primerose Petals which is one of the retiring In-colors.  This layer is then embossed with the Baroque Embossing folder. At the bottom of this layer is a 1 1/2″ strip of newsprint designer paper.  This piece is layered with a piece of Crumb Cake card stock which has been punched with the Scallop Trim Border punch.  This punch is also retiring.  I will definitely miss this punch! The card is finished up with a piece of vanilla seam binding tied into a bow and adhered with a vintage brad.  And of course, you can’t forget the bling on a vintage card – I added a large Pearl Jewel to the center of the Medallion and small Pearl Jewels between the scallops on the border. Like these ideas?  These ideas and other like them, are available to my Stamper’s Club members each month.  Check out more on my Stamper’s Club here. Happy Stamping! signature line-003    

Scrapbook Page

I recently had a request for a scrapbook lesson.  I love scrapbooking but don’t have enough time to do my own things..  So I used this opportunity to make a page using my daughter’s Sr. pictures from last year. The request was for a vintage scrapbook page.  So this is what I designed: 100_9874e I love this page and the way it came out.  So to start a vintage page, I looked at the current Stampin’ Up! designer papers and realized that we have several patterns that have a vintage feel to them! This is the Etcetera Designer Paper on a piece of 12×12 Very Vanilla card stock.   I used the Very Vintage wheel on the vanilla background with pear pizazz ink to give the vintage look to the vanilla background paper.  I selected 3 of the patterns from this designer package.  One of the things that I love about Stampin’ Up! paper is 100_9872e that all the colors coordinate with the cardstock colors.  So no searching for matching pieces.  I used Pear Pizazz cardstock and Pool Party to mat my pictures.  These are two of the colors that are in the Etcetera designer paper.   I stamped the flowers with the Flower Shop stamp set and punched them out with the coordinating Pansy punch. 100_9873eI used the Papillion Potpourri stamp set with the coordinating punch to make the butterflies. The center of the flowers are embellished with the pearl jewels.   The buttons are the Very Vintage buttons with linen thread through the holes.    The decorative trim along the top and bottom were cut using the Tasteful Trim Big Shot die.  Pearl jewels were added to each of these strips for embellishment. What is your favorite thing on this scrapbook page?   signature line-003

Vintage Thank you card

Sunday was my downline meeting and we all had a great time getting together and catching up. Of course we discussed a little business too… Our bi-annual retreat to Cape Cod is coming up!!  We have a great time getting together for 2 days on Cape Cod, sharing ideas and stamping.  I have a really creative group!  Interested in And of course we all shared cards and classes that we have been working on. Michele Lacerda, who has been in my group the longest brought this card.  Happy 10th Anniversary Michele! I love the vintage look of the card. I am thinking that she used 2 stamps sets for the background with Just Because stamped in Soft Suede for the image.  I love the roses that are in the spring mini catalog.  They really brighten up a card! 100_9085   This is a close up of the roses.  Michele used a piece of victorian lace and the leaves from the Bird punch under the roses.100_9085_edited-2 100_9085_edited-1Then of course she used the oval punch and scalloped oval and added a couple of rhinestone pearls to spice up the message…   I love it!!  Marilyn SanClemente
