A Sentimental Journey Island Indigo Phone Booth Card

feeling sentimental phone booth card

This Sentimental Journey Island Indigo phone booth card was one of the first that I made with this set.  After stamping the phone booth and tearing the paper I did a little sponging and added some hash marks with the Island Indigo marker to resemble the lines in the stamp.  I wasn’t sure if I liked it so I’ve been slow about showing it here.  🙂

I used two Sale-a-bration goodies in this card: the Sentimental Journey stamp set, of course, and the ribbon from the Sycamore Street ribbon & button pack.

Collage Curios I Love Paris In the Springtime

collage curios paris birthday card

This birthday card just makes me want to sing “I Love Paris in the Springtime.”  The eiffel tower from the Stampin’ Up! Collage Curios stamp set takes center stage but the swirly background from the Hearts a Flutter tag helps it along the way.

Each tag was stamped and then punched out with the Postage Stamp punch and popped up with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I loved using the 2011-13 In Colors for a perfect spring color palette: Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade, Pool Party and Whisteria Wonder with a little Pink Pirouette added in.

Sentimental Journey Antique Phone Booth Stamp

I’m back with another Sale-a-bration Feeling Sentimental greeting card.  And once again, I think the vintage stamps in this set are marvelous including this old-time phone booth.  I stamped the phone booth on a Top Note shape, die-cut from black cardstock with the Big Shot Die-cutting Machine.  I stamped it in White Craft ink and embossed it with white embossing powder.

I centered the Sale-a-bration Sycamore Street Rich Razzleberry button with a rhinestone and adhered it to the card with glue dots.  Celebrate was stamped in black and quickly punched out with the Extra-large Oval punch.

Bloomin’ Marvelous Color Chalk Butterflies

bloomin' marvelous chalkboard butterfly card 2

This little butterfly number features two exclusive Sale-a-bration products the Bloomin’ Marvelous Stamp Set & Vine Street Embossing Folder.  The card base is made with Crumb Cake cardstock, embossed with the Vine Street Embossing Folder and splattered with a little Melon Mambo reinker.

To create the butterfly panel, I started with Basic Black cardstock and rubbed it lightly with the Whisper White Craft Pad.  After heat setting the craft ink, I prepared the panel with the Embossing Buddy and then stamped a couple of butterflies with VersaMark.

I heat embossed the first set of butterfles with the Melon Mambo embossing powder, then stamped a couple of more butterflies, heat embossed that set with Tangerine Tango embossing powder.  And then finally stamped a couple of more butterflies and heat embossed with the Pool Party embossing powder

One butterfly was stamped on a scrap of basic black, heat embossed, punched out with the Bitty Butterfly punch and blinged up with a little rhinestone.

If you look closely, you’ll see that I scored a couple of lines on the top and bottom edges of the butterfly panel with the Simply Scored Scoring Tool.  I also ran the edges across the versamark pad and heat embossed it with Tangerine Tango embossing powder.

Feeling Sentimental Bicycle Card

feeling sentimental bicycle card I love this Sale-a-bration Sentimental Journey Stamp Set.  And it’s only available during SAB.  (SAB ends March 22nd.)  This stamp set has so much detail and charm that it makes it quick and easy to create a lovely greeting card.

The Tangerine Tango ribbon in the SAB Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button pack inspired my color choice.  And the First Edition Specialty paper is the perfect fit for the style and feel of this stamp set.  The bicycle was stamped with Versamark and Early Espresso, and clear embossed on Crumb Cake cardstock.

The Sentiment was stamped and embossed on Tangerine Tango and matted with matching Early Espresso cardstock. The Tangerine Tango ribbon, which is fabulous, is easy to work with and the perfect touch. And rhinestone adds that just a little bit something extra.
