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.

bloomin' marvelous chalkboard butterfly card 2

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.
