2014 Stampin’ Up! Cruise Swap Cards – Vintage Style

Every year all Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators have the chance to earn an all expenses paid ‘Grand Vacation’ for two somewhere yummy and/or exotic.  We always have a chance to swap some handmade cards with others on the Grand Vacation and this is the card I made multiples of to swap with others on the cruise.

Stampin' Up! Vintage style card by Angela Sargeant

I know I’ve made these vellum flowers before but I really enjoy making them so I decided to use them again.  Plus there will be lots of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators on the trip from the United States, Europe, Canada and New Zealand so I’m guessing  there’d be very few (if any?) who saw my vellum flowers anyway – may as well resurrect a fun idea!

This card has a lot going on in it so I’m going to give brief instructions about all the bits and pieces rather than step by step, but please feel free to comment or email me to ask if you have any questions about the card.

* The centre of the card has been sanded down with some sandpaper to reveal the ‘white core’ of the Core’dinations cardstock and then I stamped over the top of it randomly.  This gives that vintage/shabby chic feel to it with a bit of depth – kind of reminds of of old wallpaper.

* To get the Seam Binding ribbon all scrunchy, I simply put my hand under the tap with running water,then (away from the tap) I grabbed the whole ribbon and scrunched it up.  This made the ribbon damp and scrunched without being soaking wet and then I let it dry in the sun.  You can use the heat gun on it if you want to speed things up.  The bow is also a ‘double bow’ – quite simply I made one bow then threaded some more ribbon under it and made another bow.  Just makes it look fuller.

* The clear Vintage faceted button has been attached by threading some Linen Thread through the button and tying it around the middle of the bow with the knot underneath.

* The little butterfly is simply punched out from Natural Composition Specialty Paper which already has the embossing through it.  Gorgeous paper! punching a tiny bit out doesn’t do it justice but I love the extra texture.

* The greeting is from a bigger image that has flowers with it, but punching it out I was able to use just the greeting.

That’s about it.  Here’s a close up for you.

Vintage style gift box

A big part of the fun in my Stampin’ Up! business is preparing gifts for my customers and team members.  I know people say it’s better to give than to receive but it’s more than just “better” – I get super excited wrapping up a gift or decorating a gift box to go out because I imagine the surprise on the face of the person when they receive it.

I’m having a big “gift giving marathon” this weekend which is super fun for me and here is one of the gift boxes I’ve decorated.

Stampin' Up! vintage style gift box

By the way, if you’re not a fan of my Facebook page then you would have missed out on seeing other gift boxes too as I usually post them there.  If you’re on Facebook then please click here to go ‘like’ my Facebook page as sometimes I post things there that I don’t put on my blog and there’s also the occasional competition over there.

So the Kraft Gift Box is actually ready made that you can buy from Stampin’ Up! and then all I did was the fun part which is to decorate it.  The tag was very easy to make, I just cut some music patterned paper to fit in to the Scalloped Tag Topper punch and punched it out.  The punch is pretty cool because you just slip the card or paper in and it punches out the top to make a tag for you but you can have any length tag you want.  I decorated the tag by adding some  Crochet Trim across the bottom and attached a button to it with some linen thread.  A row of self-adhesive pearls at the top and bottom of the lace gave it that extra ‘rich’ feel.  To hide the ends of the Crochet Trim which I taped to the back of the tag, I just punched out another tag – this time in Vanilla cardstock and adhered it to the back of my tag with some Sticky Strip.  This also gives you a ‘white’ area to write on the back of your tag.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my little gift box that I decorated.  Let me know if you like this seeing this sort of thing on my blog and I’ll try to post more gift wrapping items here in the future.

Brown paper packages tied up with string…

These are a few of my favourite thingssssss!  Be thankful there’s no audio with this blog, I’m definitely not a singer.

After cardmaking my favourite thing is to make pretty packaging for small gifts.  This first package I made from a paper bag by Stampin’ Up! (it already has that white chevron pattern printed on it) and some bits and pieces that were already hanging around on my desk from when I made this vintage monochromatic card the other day.

Quick pretty packaging tip:  When you’re making your cards, make an extra embellishment or two (like the stamped/punched butterfly below) and keep them in a small container on your desk.  They come in super handy when you want to dress up a gift bag – just tie some ribbon around the bag and throw some embellishments on.

Now just don’t look too closely because what do I see there? It’s a ripped corner on the paper bag!  Holy cow.  I don’t know when I did that but I must have looked at this photo 20 times and didn’t notice it.  Now excuse me putting up this photo because I am too lazy to rephotograph, upload, edit, etc.  But rest assured all these pretty embellishments are going on a fresh paper bag before the gift is given to the recipient.

Gift bag with pretty heart detail

Here’s a close up of the little heart embellishment I made.  Did you spot the sneak peek from the new Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalogue on the heart?  Get used to seeing that beautiful embossed script because I’ll be using it a lot!

A design tip: if you want to have your embellishment hanging, like this heart, but don’t want to put a hole in it, then just make two hearts and sandwich the thread/ribbon between the hearts.  I used a dimensional instead of glue to put my two hearts together because I like the look of the space between the two hearts.

This next bag features a flower I made with Creped Filter Paper. This was so super easy you could even have kids do the flowers as a project.  I’ll post some instructions shortly but in the meantime, I just used three types of flowers that I cut from the filter paper using the Secret Garden Framelits and Blossom Punch (4 of each).  Layered them on top of each other and attached a brad to the centre to hold them together then pinched each layer one at a time to fluff them up.  I would say you could use any type of die cut or punched flower to make these pretty creped flowers, you just get a little bit of a variation on the finished flower.  By the way, you can also colour these flowers but in this case I preferred the flower to be white.

musical butterflies

The bottom of the bag features Lace Tape – no punching required, just roll out the tape!  And then embellished with punched out butterflies which I sponged some ink onto and added the pearl detail.  Here’s a close up:

Last gift bag!  This one features a paper doily folded over in half (hmmm, thinking I could have just cut it and used half!).  I sponged some ink around the edges to soften the look and give it a vintage feel then added a topper.   So with the Big Shot machine I die cut a label (Deco Labels Framelit) and then put it through the Big Shot again in the Pretty Print embossing folder to emboss the script.  The greeting I attached to the top is from the Chalk Talk stamp set which I stamped in Soft Suede ink then punched out with the wide oval punch.  A row of little pearls on either side finished off the whole doily embellishment nicely.

so glad there's you

Vintage Monochromatic Card

Ouch!  How did that happen? I didn’t blog for a day or two and that stretched out to months.  I don’t even know how to apologise for such a massive break, so I’ll just get on with sharing my latest creations and hope that I’m forgiven.

If there’s anyone out there still, today I’m sharing one of my favourite sort of cards to make, monochromatic.  I find monochromatic cards very soothing and they’re also fun to make as I rummage through my supplies to find a bunch of different ways to use similar colours. Although I did cheat a little by adding a splash of gold here and there.

A quick tip:  If you want to make a pale monochromatic card like I did, then adding texture and layers really helps everything stand out.  I’ve dragged a gold inkpad around the edges of the doily and used two different embossing folders to help with this.  Also using dimensionals (foam dots) to raise certain sections of the card works well to add more interest to what’s essentially a cream/white card.

Here’s a close up of the card.  The butterflies were stamped in gold then punched out with matching punches. Of course if you don’t mind you can also cut them out by hand easily, I just prefer to have the matching punch to make it faster and easier.

One more quick tip:  This card would also work great as a wedding or engagement card, just change the sentiment to say ‘Love’ or stamp the initials of the couple instead.

Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek

And here I was posting daily, all was wonderful until I ended up with a child at home with stomach pains and me with barely any internet.  I’m still trying to figure it out if it was me or the kids that sucked up all the internet but I’ll blame them ;)  So.. blogging was a challenge to say the least.  I think I need to make it up to you all so I’m posting a Sneak Peek today of some products from our upcoming Annual Catalogue (previously known as ‘Idea Book & Catalogue’).

Monogram Card

I’m cheating a little today and showing you a card that I made a little while ago.  I was going through my photos and found it so I thought I’d share it.

I kept the main part of the card very simple because the middle part is quite fancy. The patterned paper has been sponged around the edges with Crumb Cake ink.  The flourish frame is actually patterned paper from the same patterned paper pack as the ‘chicken wire’ paper (Beau Chateau) and I cut that out with some small scissors.

The oval in the centre is vanilla cardstock which I die-cut with the Big Shot and I then stamped the Fine Flourish stamp with Pink Pirouette onto it.  I then stamped the ‘S’ over the top of it with Marina Mist ink.  Here’s how to do the ‘frilly lace ribbon’ around the oval: put Sticky Strip (very very strong double-sided tape) around the edges of the back of the oval then stick one end of the lace ribbon down and keep gathering the ribbon while pressing it down onto the tape.  This is way way easier than it sounds and you don’t have to be perfect with it, it just turns out great anyway.  The finishing touch was to press down some self-adhesive pearls around the perimeter of the oval.  That was super easy too because the pack of pearls come with a few strips of joined pearls so you can just pick up a strip and stick it down.  Of course if you want to use them separately you want too by snipping each one off.

I hope you like this idea for a monogram card.  You can use it as a birthday card or thank you or whatever you like – just add your sentiment to the inside :D

Creative Elements

I’m a bit torn over this card.  I really like it because it’s my style, but I feel like it might need more?  I don’t know… I started to add pearls to the scallops then took them off.  I started to put buttons on the card then never glued them down.  I think it looks fine as it is but then also wonder if it needs more ‘stuff’ on it to look finished.  I don’t know.

Okay, so I couldn’t settle so I went and glued down some buttons and photographed it again, LOL.  Here’s the ‘upgraded’ version of the same card.  Which one looks best?

The patterned papers were cut to size and I sponged some Crumb Cake (Kraft) ink around the edges then adhered them to some pink cardstock which was also sponged (pink sponging).

I decided on the greeting ‘fabulous’ because I thought it could stand for many things depending on what I wrote inside the card.  The ‘fabulous’ greeting was stamped in Soft Suede which I was surprised to see worked really well with the gold embossed frame that I stamped it in.  Actually I stamped the frame first in Versamark, gold embossed it and then I cheated and used a Stamp-a-ma-jig (stamp positioner) to stamp the greeting so that it sat nicely in the centre.  I wasn’t going to risk stamping it crookedly then start the embossing all over again!  Then I cut around the frame with some small scissors.  I wasn’t sure how that would turn out as I always use punches or dies or cut straight around frames but surprisingly it looks okay.

I hope you’ve all had a great weekend! I didn’t do nearly as much crafting as I wanted to do, but then again that’s what my Mondays to Fridays are for :)  See you tomorrow!

Elegant Birthday Card

I have a confession to make ;)  When I make a card for someone who’s not in the ‘card world’, I like to use heat embossing.  I remember when I first saw gold embossing and I was blown away that could be done by just anyone – not just Hallmark!  So now, I like to use gold embossing for non-stampers just so that I look extra clever, LOL.

It’s my Aunty’s birthday tomorrow and I wanted to make her a card that reflected her tastes.  The colours, the vintage style and images of fountain pens I think suits her perfectly.  It’s lovely to be able to dig through your stash of craft supplies and be able to find those bits and pieces that make a card individual for the person you’re making it for.

For this card I started with the patterned paper.  I thought the images on it were perfect so that was the starting point and theme for me.  The birthday greeting was heat embossed in gold and I’ll give you a little tip for when you’re wanting to heat emboss inside a frame.  I’ve tried this a few different ways and what I found the fastest and easiest way is to do your stamping and heat embossing first then do the dry embossing and die-cutting.  That way you don’t have to worry about stamping your greeting crooked.  To do this, I stamped the “Birthday Wishes” greeting with Versamark onto some Very Vanilla cardstock and dipped it into my gold embossing powder.  I like to keep my embossing powder in large plastic containers so that I can dip the whole cardstock in – it’s less mess than pouring your powder onto your image.  So, after your embossing powder is on, you use your heat gun to melt and emboss.  I then applied some Dotto (repositionable adhesive) on the back of the cardstock and placed it inside my embossing folder so that I could see the greeting nice and centred in the oval.  The Dotto kept my cardstock in place so it didn’t shift around when putting it through the Big Shot.  Once the oval was embossed I then die-cut around the oval with a Stampin’ Up! Framelit.  Sounds time consuming but it really only took minutes.

Some seam binding ribbon and a vintage brad finished off my card and kept to the whole ‘soft vintage’ theme I was going for.

Don’t forget, this gorgeous paper I’ve used is retiring in just over a week.  I’ve ordered myself 2 extra packs because I love it so much.

Fresh Vintage

So I’ve finally gotten over my issues with cutting into beautiful patterned paper only to now come up with the fear of running out of said beautiful paper.  Aaaahhh!  Can anyone relate?  The paper I’ve used here for this card was actually free (yes, you can get it free too, more info later) and so I’m thinking I’ll need to hoard several packets of it just so that I don’t run out too quick.

Have you ever had a little papercraft issue then solved it with a happy ending?  I did with this card.  I decided to stamp the main image using the same colours of the patterned paper (Lucky Limeade & Baja Breeze) but for the life of me I couldn’t find my Lucky Limeade marker.  What to do?  Easy, ink up the image with an inkpad (that I could find!) and then pick off the colour from the areas I wanted to colour blue with a blender pen, then colour those areas with my Baja Breeze marker.  In this case I decided I wanted the colouring a little more ‘blended’ so while I wiped off the green from the flowers with my blender pen, I didn’t do it so well that there was no colour at all – that way when I went over the flowers with the Baja Breeze marker, it came out a little mixed and looking like batik.

Technique Tip: picking off a colour with a blender pen to re-colour is great to do multi-colour stamping, but if you’re using a darker colour you don’t need to clean off the ink, simply go over the top of a light ink with your dark marker and it will cover it fine without messing up your marker.  You’ll want to make sure though that there is a significant difference between your shades.  I’ve done this very successfully with Stampin’ Up!’s Pool Party inkpad and Island Indigo markers.

So back to the free part… the patterned paper I’ve used here along with the stamp (which is part of the Fresh Vintage stamp set) is our of the new Sale-a-bration promotion which begins in Australia tomorrow.  More details tomorrow but the short story is that for every $100 purchased from Stampin’ Up! you can choose one Sale-a-bration product free.  In previous years we’ve only had stamps, this time there’s also patterned paper and a brad/ribbon pack available!

Inspiration strikes from anywhere!  Just jumping back in to edit this post… I forgot to add a photo of my inspiration for the layout of this card.

Photo from www.artforkids.net

The colour scheme of course is very different but you can see where the bow at the top with the vintage brad on my card was taken from the fabric/crown combo above the beds.  The centre section and then the strips at the bottom of my card taken from the ruffles from the bottom of the bed.  Maybe I’ll make another one but this time take inspiration from the gorgeous colour palette in this bedroom.

Vintage style butterfly card

So I’ve been going through my mind with all the excuses as to why I haven’t blogged in forever.  After the usual back & forth about being busy with other areas of my stamping business, some issues with my right hand due to carpal tunnel and also getting ready for my trip to Fiji, etc., I think it all boils down to the fact that I’ve just let other things get in the way.  I love blogging and I really miss it when I leave too much time between posts, so here I am vowing to myself not to let other things get in the way too much.

Now after all that rambling I’d love to share with you a card that I made this morning.

The card is very simple to recreate.  All I did was die-cut out the butterflies in matching papers all from the Beau Chateau suite of papers from Stampin’ Up!, sponged the edges with ink and then layered them.  The background is Crumb Cake cardstock (formerly known as Kraft) which I dry embossed using the Big Shot and the Finial Press Embossing Folder.  The ‘newsprint’ paper on the right is from Stampin’ Up!’s First Edition specialty paper which I sponged around the edges with Crumb Cake ink and then sponged the centre with some Champagne Mist shimmer paint to give it a very light gold shimmer.  Very quick and easy and I think would work for a variety of occasions such as birthday, get well, thank you, Mother’s Day (although that’s aaages away)… just add your sentiment to the inside of your card and you’re done.

Quick cardmaking tip: using patterned papers that come in a pack means super quick and coordinated cards.  You can use lots of different patterned paper and it still matches beautifully (see how many different patterns are in the butterflies?).  Also your colour combination is taken care of as you just go with the colours that are from the patterned paper.

Card background style tip: If you don’t want a plain background but the front of your card is quite busy, go for an embossed background (dry embossed or clear embossing powder on plain cardstock) to give interest and texture to your card without overwhelming it.

Hope you enjoyed this card and I promise I will be back again quickly.
