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.

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.

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:

Cross My Heart Fun Flower Card

cross my heart fun flower card 2

If you read my posts in your email, you may have noticed this afternoon that first picture of my For the Birds Thank You card was different than most of the rest.  Well, I don’t know how it happened put I accidently selected the wrong photo when I wrote it up, but it’s been corrected now.  I didn’t want you to lose any sleep over it!  Haha.

The adorable butterflies in the card above are from the Stampin’ Up! Cross My Heart stamp set from the new Spring catalog.  That little butterfly stamp is the reason I bought that set!  I fell in love.

The flower is the star of the show here.  I cut two sets of flowers from the Tea for Two Designer Series Paper, Big Shot Die-cutting Machine and the Fun Flower Bigz Die.  I then spritzed them with water, crumbled, stacked and assembled with a brad in the middle to hold it all together.  After putting it all together I sprayed it with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz.  Can you see the shine?

A little Linen Thread bow through the button and then I glued it to the top of the brad with Crystal Effects.  With all the water and the shimmer, a glue dot was just not going to cut it, but Crystal Effects is like super glue.

The button on the flower is from the Sale-A-Bration Sycamore Street ribbon and button pack, which will be available FREE with a qualifying order tomorrow!  The button is actually Tangerine Tango, and the paper and ink are actually Calypso Coral, so they are not the same color, but in person they blend and look great together.  However, in the pictures, not so much.  Darn.
