Easy Way to Make a Vintage Card, Plus Blog Candy Winner

I saw on Pinterest a card using the rubber stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called In This World.  I had bought this set because I love anything Vintage and this called to me!

I changed it up so much that I went back to see hers and it was nothing like what mine turned out as!  Has that happened to you? You can find her YouTube video here  It’s very pretty, but not the way I went with mine.  I followed some of her ideas, but that’s as far as I got!

Here is my version:  

 

What do you think?  It needed a ‘spot’ of color, so I added the ribbon and the Falling In Love Trinket.  This picture has the Burlap ribbon in it, going along the side.  I ran out (I’m making swaps for my Savannah OnStage event!!) so I just went without for the rest of the swaps.

Here is the other version:  

I used VersaMark on the sides of BOTH swaps and added Gold Embossing Powder.  Plus added it to the Sentiment to make it stand out.

Here is a close-up of the treatment on the Soft Sky:  

I used almost every Stamp in this set!  The only one I didn’t use is the chair.  And I LOVE the chair, so I will have to come up with something to use that the next time!

I used the stamp from the In This World that has the long strip of dimensions?  I have a question mark there because I’m not sure what to call it!  Do you know?  I stamped that image in Crumb Cake on the top left and bottom right. Then stamped again, along top and bottom left using Early Espresso ink.  I stamped the one on the right bottom once on a scrap and then on the page, so the key will show up.  That is stamped in Early Espresso too!  I then stamped the blotchy stamp (that’s what I call it!) from the Stamp set Gorgeous Grunge using the Crumb Cake all over the card, stamping off every other time.  I then sponged it with Crumb Cake on ALL sides, sponging really well so it went towards the center.  Then sponged SOFTLY using the Early Espresso ink.  Just to give it a dark outer edge.

I stamped the door on Very Vanilla (it doesn’t look like it does it!), that shows how much I sponged it!  I used Early Espresso for the Door, and Crumb Cake for the sponging.  But first I distressed the edges by ripping, bending and tearing , I tore off the corner.  You have to make sure you do the distressing first, and THEN sponge.  This way the edges that bend over are sponged on both sides.  My shoulders were HURTING by the end of this, and I only made 30 cards!  I usually make a LOT more, but I’m glad I didn’t this time!

Here is the inside: 

I didn’t sponge the inside because I wanted it to stay pristine, so you can see what is written when sending it.  Would you be happy to get this card?  Or is it too messy?

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Vintage card, have I forgotten how to do it?  I feel needy today for some reason!  It could be because I was winging it the whole time!  LOL

Here is the Blog Candy that I’m giving away today:

Congrat’s to the Winner:  Sue Root!!

Making a Sunset

I LOVE sunsets, don’t you? I wanted to make one that was easy but still be stunning…….at least I think so, hopefully you do too!!

I have a video on YouTube walking you through this technique, I hope you check it out here. You can also shop for the products you see in this post and on my videos at my Online Store!

Making a Desert scene was my final one, I had to make FOUR cards with Sunsets! Just couldn’t help myself!

The first one is one I posted on my FaceBook page Let’s Stamp!

It features a lighthouse and this is where my Sunset journey started! I saw a video by Tina Zinck on making sunsets, so off I went!

This was so fun and easy (Thanks Tina!!) That I didn’t stop there! But first let me tell you what I used to make this card!

Stamps: High Tide #143006
Inks: Cherry Cobbler #126966, Watermelon Wonder #138323, Night of Navy #126970, Perfect Plum #126963, So Saffron #126957, Crushed Curry #131173, Crumb Cake #126975, Early Espresso #126974, Chocolate Chip #126979, Whisper White #101731, Momento Black #132708, Versamark #102283 and Sahara Sand #126976
Paper: Cherry Cobbler #119685 – 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, Whisper White #100730 – 4″ X 5 1/4″
Misc: Project Life Corner Rounder #135346, Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine #123125, 1″ circle punch #119868, Gold Embossing Powder #133457

Now, on to the next Sunset Card! This one uses the Lift Me Up Stamp set, but uses the same techniques as on my video.

I love how the Ocean/water came out on this one! This uses the same color palate as the card above. Here are the dimensions for the card stock, since everything else is the same:

Cherry Cobbler 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, Crushed Curry #131199 – 3 1/4″ X 4 3/4″, Cherry Cobbler- 3 1/8″ X 4 3/4″, Whisper White – 3″ X 4 3/4″ and 2″ X 1 1/2″ (for the sentiment).
I also used Dazzling Diamonds #133751, and Fine Tip Glue to make the Dazzling Diamonds stick #138309

What else can I make with this Sunset? I just HAD to make more!! So I pulled out my Trusty set of Lovely as a Tree!!! Love this set!
Again, I used the same colors, just used the Stamp set Sending Thoughts #142965 from the Occasions Catty 2017 and I also used the FREE with Sale-A-Bration ribbon Metallic Gold #143601!

Here are those dimensions:
Elegant Eggplant #105126 – 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, Whisper White 5 1/4″ X 4″
The Elegant Eggplant Ink # is 126969, Gold Embossing Powder #133457

And now for the Final Card, this is the one I made the video on!!

I had so much fun making this one!! Like I said at the Beginning, I LOVE sunsets, by this time you might just believe me! hahahaha

The supplies for this card are:

Stamps: Birthday Fiesta #141500, Thoughts and Prayers #127805, Here for You # 142164
Inks: Watermelon Wonder #138323, Night of Navy #126970, Crushed Curry #131173, Crumb Cake #126975, Early Espresso #126974, Chocolate Chip #126979, Momento Black #132708, Night of Navy #126970, Black Marker
Paper: Night of Navy #100867 – 5 1/2″ X 4 1/2″ , Watermelon Wonder #138334 – 5 1/4″ X 4″, Whisper White #100730 5″ X 3 3/4″
Misc: Sponges #141337, Big Shot #143263, Up & Away thinlits #142748

If you love these colors together, make sure and stock up on Watermelon Wonder!! It’s one of the In Colors that is retiring this year 🙁 This is a GREAT color to make your sunsets with! The other reds are either too red, or too dark. It’s doable, but this one just makes it easy!

I hope you enjoyed all my Sunsets, and that you will want to visit me again! I will be making more videos, I am really enjoying it! Make sure you sign up on my YouTube page to be notified when I have another one coming out!
