When I first saw the images from Stampin' Up's! Feeling Sentimental Sale-a-bration stamp set, it brought back memories of my childhood when we had to go down to the corner and the red telephone box if we wanted to make a phone call. I grew up in a household with no phone! That is almost unimaginable these days, and to this day I do not really like using the 'phone.
I think these images are great and the style evokes somewhat of a "yesteryear feeling".
As I mentioned it is a Sale-A-Bration stamp set and therefore is exclusive and FREE to customers who order $100.00 or more of Stampin' Up! product.
I used the Emboss Resist technique for the basis of the card, with a little sponging and over stamping, and then decided to create some more interest by making another panel using the DSP, a little sponging and Pink Card stock.
Linen Thread by Stampin' Up! is really suited to the vintage look and of course the Antique Brads make a nice statement as an embellishment.
Here is the completed card.
It is mounted onto a white card base and you'll notice the slight overlapping of shapes that don't stay within the boundaries of the card base. I like to go "off the page" - somehow it gives me more freedom and there really is no reason to stay within the confines of a square or rectangle.
I hope you like the card. If you'd like to make one of these, this is just one of the projects I teach at my Sale-A-Bration Events.
The next one is on Friday February 15th.
I still have a couple of spaces available. The event is free and you'll have the opportunity to view all the SAB products, and try some of them out.
I'll also demonstrate a number of the new products from the new Seasonal Catalogue .
Contact me if you'd like further information.
Until next time,
