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!!

A Happy Thing

I just got back from Stampin’ Up’s! Leadership and they had this stamp set EVERYWHERE!  Luckily I had already earned it (it’s a Sale-A-Bration stamp set or SAB, which I got FREE for purchasing $50.00), so I decided to come up with my own card!!

I didn’t CASE anyone!!  I love when my creative juices are flowing!  I used the ‘A Happy Thing’ stamp set (139134) along with ‘Crazy about You’ (137137), which is SO versatile, you can use it on just about EVERY card!!

I am always saying these words “Just Sayin'” so this stamp is  PERFECT for me!  I also used the Daffodil Delight (130998) and Old Olive (130999) Blendabilities (Which you can get for FREE!!) and if you come to my class I will walk you through how to shade this wonderful stamp set!!  I also used the Thinlits “Hello You” (137363).

 AND right now until June 2nd you get the BUNDLE that has the ‘Hello You’ thinlits and the Stamp set ‘Crazy about You’ #139325 (clear) Photopolymer #138873 so you save 15%!!  IF you buy this bundle in the clear or Wood #139324, You can get the ‘A Happy Thing’ stamp set that is used in this card for FREE because it is a SAB set!  If you purchase the Photopolymer, which I LOVE, you will need to add another item to your order to get the FREE ‘A Happy Thing’ stamp set, you need $50 in US.

I used the Daffodil Delight ribbon #125583, the Specialty Designer Series Paper ‘Birthday Bash’ #137783 and some dimensionals #104430 which will give you MORE than enough to get ‘A Happy Thing!

So, are you ready to see the handmade card?

You will need to zoom in to see what I used at the bottom of the stamped image, I ruffled some plastic from a clear envelope!  THAT was really fun to do!

I hope you like my SU! handmade card!!
