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.

feeling sentimental ferris wheel stamp

Feeling Sentimental Ferris Wheel Stamp

feeling sentimental ferris wheel stamp

The stamp images in the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Feeling Sentimental set are to die for!  I love the intricate, antique line drawings of a ferris wheel, phone booth and an old-time bicycle.  On this card, I decided to go light on dark with a couple of neutrals and Pool Party as my main color.  The latest Spring catalog and the Sale-a-bration products feature a lot of accessories for Pool Party, which I love.

I started with a Natural White cardstock.  Natural White is a little heavier than Whisper White and has a very slight speckled or grainy look to it.  It seemed perfect for a crisp, vintage look.   I stamped the ferris wheel in Versamark on Early Espresso cardstock, then embossed it with Pool Party embossing powder.  ‘Celebrate’ is embossed with Pool Party also.

And the Pool Party ribbon from the SAB Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button Pack is perfect.  This ribbon is wonderful.  It ties so easily and is not bulky on your projects.  You can get this ribbon with two other shades plus three colors of buttons in the pack.

Collage Curios ‘Bee Mine’ Valentine Card

Collage Curios bee mine card

The big framelit die-cut heart provides impact on this Bee Mine Valentine, made with the Collage Curios and Notable Alphabet stamp sets.  And even though m-i-n-e is spelled out with individual letters, it’s super quick and easy to make this customized card.

Collage Curios bee mine card

After I layered the Whisper White cardstock on the Primrose Petals cardstock, I used my bone folder to gently rough up the edges.

I added a rhinestone to the bee and included a cascading row of rhinestones on the heart for a little sparkle.

So here’s the part that makes this card super easy to make and duplicate.  Add your stamps to your long ‘H’ acrylic block and stamp as many as you would like! This is a great strategy for stamping any word multiple times and it’s one of the great advantages to clear-mount cling stamps.

When you add your stamps to the block you have to think backwards to line them up correctly.  And be sure to stamp a sample on scrap paper to make sure you have it the way you want it.
