Celebrate Card

Posting & Creation by Jennifer Cuthbertson

Today I have a fun, patriotic card in honor of the upcoming 4th of July and also to take advantage of some new Bo Bunny papers I just bought! :)

I stamped the celebrate banner stamp from the Stampin' D'Amour Fabulous Birthday set on to one piece of paper, cut each of the little pennants out, and attached them all to some red and white baker's twine. I attached the banner with two coordinating chipboard star stickers and finished the card with a chipboard sticker of the USA.

Supplies: Stamps - Fabulous Birthday (SDA), DP/Embellishments - Liberty Collection (Bo Bunny), Twine (Country Clean), Cardstock - Not Quite Navy (SU!), Ink - Basic Black (SU!)

Stampin D Amour Vintage Style...

Creation & Posting by Angelica Turner

I have a card featuring a couple of images from Stampin' D'Amour and sketch #196 from Mojo Monday. The lady image is from the "French Vintage" set and the birthday sentiment is from the "Fabulous Birthday" set. For the background I used some paper from Basic Grey and embossed with the "Heritage" embossing folder from Cuttlebug, I lightly applied some walnut stain distress ink to the embossed areas to make them pop a bit more.
The lady image I stamped with black archival ink on cream colored cardstock and shaded with distress ink, I used a Sakura gelly roll pen to add some sparkle to the image. Also added some Prima flowers and punched leaves to coordinate with the colors on the punched strips of patterned paper and the frame on the stamped image.
Thank you so much for stoping by and hope you have a great day. Until next time.

Thanks a Million!

Today I've got a cute card to share with you that I made using the Vintage Children set from Stampin' D'Amour! I love all of the images in this set from this school image to a Valentine image - it is a set I use over and over!

I stamped and colored this image, layered it over some school-themed papers, and finished the vintage look by using some black photo corners.

Thanks for stopping by!

Bonjour Vintage Tag

Welcome to Friday with Stampin' D'Amour, today I have a fun vintage inspired tag with lots of pink, very girly!!! The Eiffel tower image and sentiment are from the "French Vintage" clear stamp set. I started with glimmer misting a tag using caramel apple glimmer mist and a glimmer screen from the "Fanciful" set.
The flower I made with crepe paper, I found this fun tutorial on the Artful Affirmations blog so I gave it a try, very fun and easy to make. For the image in the center of the flower, I stamped it on white cardstock, cut with a Spellbinders circle die and embossed, I then slightly inked it with walnut stain ink. I took one of those Making Memories circle rims for the tag maker, I sanded it to make the surface of it rough, applied some embossing ink and heat embossed with walnut stain distress embossing powder, I ended up doing about 4 layers until it looked like old metal.
The sentiment I stamped on a tiny tag and inked with distress ink and added some glitter to the edges, I used a little jump ring to attach the tag to the tulle bow. Thank you for stoping by and hope you have a wonderful day.
Size: 2 1/2" x 5 1/4"
Stamps: Stampin' D'Amour (French Vintage)
Inks: Ranger Archival Ink (Jet Black), Distress Ink (walnut stain), dauber embossing ink

Thinking of You...

Thinking of You

I just adore all of the vintage label stamps by StampinDAmour and used another one for this card. This week I decided to use the color challenge at CR84FN as my inspiration - I stamped the Vintage Typewriter in Certainly Celery, cut it out, and distressed the edges. I layered some pretty white lace and some green baker's twine to the card base and added a tag which I stamped with a sentiment from Vintage Children. I love this pink and green card - very springy/summery!

Supplies: Stamps - Vintage Typewriter, Vintage Children (SDA), Card Stock - Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White (SU!), Distrezz It All, Ink - Certainly Celery, Basic Black (SU!), Cuttlebug, Tag Die (Spellbinders), Twine (Divine Twine), Lace (May Arts), DP - Nursery Girl (DCWV)

Another cute Stampin D Amour card...

POSTING & CREATION by Angelica Turner

Good morning and welcome, today I have a card I made with this vintage label image from Stampin' D'Amour, this image is part of their "French Vintage" clear stamp set, I used sketch #194 from Mojo Monday for my layout inspiration. Since the design uses lots of small pieces I went through my scrap folders and found lots of green and brown patterns.
I stamped the image on green patterned paper, diecut with a Spellbinders circle die and covered with Crackle Accents. For the brown decorative tag I used a die from the "Fleur De Lis Accents" set, cut and embossed, I then used the die to trace the outside of the shape on green patterned paper and cut with scissors. Adhered everything with pop dots to add some dimension. Thank you so much for stoping by and hope you have a wonderful day.

Size: 5" x 6 1/2"
Stamps: Stampin' D'Amour (French Vintage)
Inks: ColorBox (Chesnut), Distress Ink (Forest Moss)
Paper: Bazzill Cardstock, Basic Grey Fancy Pants Designs
Other: Crackle Accents, Recollections copper brads, ribbon, Spellbinders Dies (Standard Circles Large, Fleur De Lis Accents), Martha Stewart border punch (Flower Bed), pop dots

Paris Tag

Posting & Creation by Angelica Turner

Good Friday morning everyone, today I have a vintage inspired tag I made using a stamp from Stampin' D'Amour. This image is part of the "French Vintage" clear stamp set. To start the tag I inked it with some distress inks and added a touch of Glimmer mist, I then used this fun embossing folder from Cuttlebug, once embossed I added some aged mahogany distress ink to make the embossing pop. I used some hand dyed seam binding to make the bow and adhered a clear button with an adhesive pearl to the center.
I added some roses and some punched leaves, I applied a touch of stickles to the edges of the petals on all the roses. I punched the bottom edge of the tag with a MS border punch and adhered some pretty lace, also added some tiny adhesive pearls for my final touch. Thank you for taking the time to stop by, hope you have a great day and a wonderful weekend.
