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.

Bloomin’ Marvelous with Chalkboard Stamping

The chalkboard technique is so easy and fun and gives great results especially with the  Sale-a-bration Bloomin’ Marvelous stamp set!  If you want to learn more about chalkboard stamping, check out this Jar of Hearts valentine post and video.  If you’ve liked my Stamping Julie facebook page, you saw this card a few days ago.

I started with a Crumb Cake cardstock card base.  When I want to add ribbon around a portrait oriented card I cut my cardstock at 4-1/2″ x 11″.  The SAB Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button Pack has three great ribbon colors – Tangerine Tango, Island Indigo & Pool Party – and the set comes with matching buttons in Tangerine Tango and Pool Party.  I decided to use the Tangerine Tango ribbon and buttons for a bold splash of color on an otherwise neutral card.

To add an additional ‘splash’ of color, I dropped Tangerine Tango color on the background as well.  This is easy to do with reinkers. Just put a couple of drops of ink on the lid of your open stamp pad and add a drop or two of water to dilute it a bit.  Then use a paint brush to pick up the ink and splash it over your card base.

You may want to experiment first on scratch paper first if you’ve never done this before so you get just the look you want.

I scored a border down the left side with the Simply Scored Scoring Tool and the Borders Scoring Plate and swiped just a bit of white craft ink over the embossing so that it would stand out a little more.
