Vintage Vogue 6x6

Here is a a rare photo that I will show with my scrapbook pages, as you know I usually just post the page without photos attached. This was another entry for the display stamper call that Stampin'Up had so I didn't take pictures until after they were done.

All of my enteries were done using the Vintage Vogue set that has quickly become a favorite stamp set. The photo is of Mom and I. I really like how pink and brown shades go together so that was the basis's of my color scheme here, which is Blush Blossom and Soft Suede. The long strip actually flips up to reveal the journaling underneath. It is a great way to still showcase the photo without having the journaling showing. So what do you think?

Happy Stamping!

Blast Off!

This was one of my favorite projects beside the pirate card I made for the blog hop and from the comments it was also many of yours.

So here is the details. I made this little rocket ship using an old film canister from 35mm film. I found it in my craft stash. This little cutie measures 4 inches tall and about 3 inches wide. I took a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock and wrapped it around the main piece of the canister after I crimped it. The tip of the rocket ship is from a circle which I cut in half then wrapped into a cone, I carefully glued it to the top. I then wrapped a thin strip is gray cardstock around the edge of the film canister top and between the cone and top of the rocket ship. To make the wings I took one of the hexagons from the pop up 3d Ball die cut it in half, then fold and attached to either side of the rocket ship. I then punched out a circle in gray cardstock and a small one out of Whisper White to make the window. Lastly I used my white gel pen to add the dot details around the edges and window. So what do you think? Pretty nifty!!

Happy Stamping!!

Another World

This was the card I showcased on my blog in the last set from Stampin' Addicts Birthday blog hop. If you missed it you can check it out here.

I love this card and it came out better than I had hoped! I created this card with the Geetings, Earthling stamp set. I made the planet and moon using my big shot and the clear circle and circles #2 dies. I cut the large circle in half, on one half I punched out different size circles and then used them between the two halves.The inside circles I used dimensionals and then doubled dimensionals to put the top layer on. Then I spritzed on silver shimmer paint which distorted the top layer even more, creating all the dimension on the planet which you can see in the up close picture. I also dirtied it up by sponging gray ink and rubbed on white gel marker using my finger. For the moon I punched out a circle in Crushed Curry and crinkled it up. I also sprayed shimmer paint on it with the gold color. I stamp Happy birthday from the A Little Birthday Cheer stamp set which I curved around the planet. The little alien I colored with markers and popped him in and around the moon. Lastly on the Bermuda Bay base I sponged Crushed Curry ink and used my white gel pen to create the stars you would see in space. This card measures 4 1/2 x 2 3/4. So what do you think?

Stay tuned for my next post when I give the details on my little space ship. Happy Stamping!!

Simple Alien Cards

If you joined us for the Stampin' Addicts Birthday Blog Hop then you've seen a grouping of these next projects. I wanted to share a bit more information about each one. So today I'm going to start with the first grouping.

This card is pretty simple and straight forward, it measures 4x4. For the base I used soft suede and just crimped a small section to add some dimension. The word Celebrate is from the set A Little Birthday Cheer. The focal image is from Greetings, Earthling which is such a fun little set that I think everyone should have backed on Bermuda Bay cardstock. I used crystal effects to cover the space mask for added depth. Tossed in some Crushed Curry ribbon and star. I used my markers to color in the image for bold colors.

Next was this little party treat favor. I used the holder that my C clear block came in. I used the same stamps and color scheme that I used in making the card. Everything but the little alien is on the inside of the clamp shell case. I also used crystal effects on the stomach and eyeball for added dimension. The mini pez candies I picked up at a dime store.

Happy Birthday Blog Hop

Welcome to Stampin' Addict's Blog Hoppin' Birthday Bash!
Stamping Addict's is turning ONE this month so what better way to celebrate than a smashing birthday blog hop!

If you been following the party from start to finish then you've just come from Joyce's Birthday Bash over at Stampin Central. Don't worry if you get lost you can always check out the complete list here. This hop will run until midnight tomorrow so you have plenty of time to check out each and every blog. But don't forget to join us over at Stampin' Addicts for a BirthdayJam going on all weekend; after the hop of course!

The theme of my party is all about the little guys .... so come on over and join the fun!

Well I'd like to think my boy's are still little but not so much, especially when you have to look up at them. So here is one designed with my oldest son in mind.

This card is perfect for that tween stage that can be so hard to make. Both of my boys are into skulls and skeletons ... wonder where they got that from; so I made this card with that in mind. The main images are from Beware Pirates. I wanted the vellum to look like a pirate flag so I attached it in the way a flag would wave in the wind; you can click on the side picture to see the dimension on it. I wanted the background to be busy and and dirty so I used Extreme Elements stamp set to do that. Being the card is for a boy I couldn't add any ribbon so I just tied some black thread around the base and of course I added some shimmer paint to the stars before stamping to add a bit of manly bling!!

Now here is the first Birthday Bash set inspired for my little one, who even though loves those skulls just as much as me still likes this kind of stuff.

This one I kept clean and simple so it would be easy to make lots of them in a short amount of time, but I thought it was a little too plain so I made this next one too.

I'm so lovin' this set!! It would make for a great birthday theme! Be sure to check out my blog over the next week when I give a few more details on these last two projects or you can subscribe to my blog and you'll know when I update! The link to subscribe is on my side bar to the left.

So there you have it and I don't know about you but I've sure have gotten some great ideas for all those birthday's that are coming up!! So blast on off and check out our next Birthday Bash over at Kim's place Stitchin n Stampin on Paper! Happy Stamping!!

Spring Door Hanger

Thought we could use a little break from the Vintage Vogue series, I have a few more to show but I will do those later. For now I wanted to share this spring door hanger.

It's a small one that measures 3 x 4 1/2. For this project I used With All My Heart from the Occasion's mini catalog. I used a piece of scrap DSP from Cottage Wall and I spritzed the main flower with shimmer paint. I picked spring colors because I am hoping that spring will show itself sometime soon!! Happy Stamping!!

Brighter Vintage Vogue

Here is the third and last card that I sent in. This was a last minute card I made when I just couldn't decide on the others I had made.

The colors here are Certainly Celery and Bermuda Bay and they go together surprisingly well. I was sure how this vintage set would do in brighter colors but I think it looks great! I crimped the base just a bit to add some texture. The Bermuda Bay piece is done using the faux flannel technique. I originally had the centers done with Iridescent Ice but I changed them by adding pop up glue dots and microbeads with Certainly Celery as the background and it really softened it up. Happy Stamping!!

Vintage Vogue - Classic II

Here is the second card I sent in. I love this one too!!

I had completely forgotten we had this Naturals Ivory color ... I think it's my new favorite color for a base. I love the simplicity and colors in the card. To add a little flair to the flower I added and knotted piece of ribbon to the center. I also used the scallop trim punch along the one side. This card has that classic clean look. What do you think?? Happy Stamping!

Vintage Vogue - Classic

Here was one of the cards I did send in for a chance to be a display board stamper. I love how this came out.

I think what I like most about this card is the two tone colors of the main flower and the vine in the background. The flower I did in the rock and roll technique and for the vines I colored them with markers. I added some DSP which I ran the scallop trim punch along one side as well as adding some of that yummy chocolate chip taffeta ribbon. So whatcha think? Happy Stamping!!

Vintage Vogue Flowers

This next card I made using Vintage Vogue I almost sent but at the last minute changed my mind.

This card measures 4 1/2 x 4 1/2. The colors look great together here too. I used Bliss Blue, Rose Red and Old Olive, they make for a bright and cheery card. I won't even tell you how long it took to make this card ... it was one of those I redid about a half a dozen times, but it had a great ending result! Happy Stamping!

Vintage Vogue - Scallop Flower

Here is another card featuring the Vintage Vogue set. It also uses one of my favorite new toys ... the scallop trim punch.

I like this card better than the last one ... these are great colors together!! I did mist with shimmer paint the card base, the circle flower as well as the main focal image. I did it after I had stamped the focal image and it made it have a sifter muted image. To make the circle flower I just ran the scallop trim punch along strip of cardstock, then crimped it and bunched it around a punched circle and topped it off with a small flower punched from the Boho Blossom punch. Happy Stamping!

Layered Vintage Vogue

As I told you the other day I have been playing with my Vintage Vogue set. I applied to be a display stamper with Stampin' Up! and it would be fantastic if I got it, but we will see. So first I will share with you the one's I didn't send in for one reason or another. Here is one I'm not quite sure I like:

I really like the colors but the layers just weren't doing it for me. But it's still pretty. I did the flower by mixing reinker and the shimmer paint. It's very shimmery in person! Happy Stamping!
