Sentimental Journey Antique Phone Booth Stamp

feelling sentimental rich razzleberry chalkboard stamping card

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.

Here’s the card recipe:

blue ribbon valentine card

Blue Ribbon #1 Valentine Card

blue ribbon valentine card

I was busy making congratulation cards with Stampin’ Up!’s Blue Ribbon stamp set when the idea came to me to make a valentine card with this set. Kind of a ‘you’re my #1 Valentine!’ card.  Instead of using the scallop top for the blue ribbon I used a die cut heart from the Hearts Collection Framelits Die set.

blue ribbon valentine card I created a matching envelope with the Simply Scored Diagonal Plate.  So fun and easy!  If you want to learn how I got my pattern straight instead of diagonal on the envelope check out this post with a video tutorial on how to make an envelope.

And I clipped my hubby’s name to the top for a creative way to keep it closed with the adorable heart paper clip available in the Spring catalog.  I stamped and embossed his name in white with the Notable Alphabet stamp set.  Every crafter should have at least one alphabet stamp set on hand for personlizing projects!

I’m enjoying all the fun comments I’m getting on the blog candy post.  It sounds like so many of you have special plans to show the ones you love how much you love and appreciate them!  Valentine’s Day is not just for sweethearts; it’s also a day to show our love for children, grandchildren, friends and coworkers.

Have fun as you make your cards and your treats.  And I hope you found a little inspiration today with this Number 1 Valentine Blue Ribbon card.

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.

Clean and Simple Secret Garden Flower Dies Stamping

bloomin' marvelous secret garden card

More clean and simple collage stamping in this greeting card created with the Stampin’ Up! Secret Garden stamp and flowers die bundle and the FREE Bloomin’ Marvelous set available during Sale-a-bration with a $50 product purchase.

I stamped this on yummy Shimmery White cardstock.  It’s hard to photograph but if you look closely, you can see the shimmer!  And using the framelit dies made masking and layering these flowers super easy.  (You can watch the video below to see how!)

bloomin' marvelous secret garden card flag

I tried stamping the black sentiment directly over the flowers, but it didn’t show up the way I liked so I stamped it on a piece of vellum to layer over the top.  Using the vellum allowed the thought to stand out more without completely covering the flower design.  A perfect solution!

Here is the Card Recipe:
