Feeling Sentimental?

What could be better than getting FREE stamps and supplies?  I mean seriously???
I don't know about you but I'm loving Sale-A-Bration so far.  I've found tons of different ways to used just about all of the products I've earned so far and I'm nowhere close to being done.

Today I'm sharing a card I created for my "Just Cards" class recently.  It features "Feeling Sentimental", one of the stamp sets that's FREE during Sale-A-Bration.  It's available in English, French and Spanish.  Let me show you the card and then I'll explain how I created it....


...and here's a peek at the inside...

To add a little added "vintage" feel....it's spritzed with the Stampin' Spritzer Tool and an Island Indigo Marker.  Fun, huh?



The card base is Island Indigo.  The background was created by stamping the "En Francais" stamp in Island Indigo Ink.  "Tone on Tone" stamping can give you such a striking effect.  I really enjoy using it.
Ok...now for a really fun technique....  the "Grid" technique.
I started with a scrap of Whisper White card stock.  I used my diagonal plate for the Simply Scored tool.  Now, you can choose whether to score your lines horizontally and vertically or score them diagonally.  You can also choose how far apart they will be.  Mine were scored 3/4" apart on the diagonal (hence the diagonal scoring plate).   Once the card stock has been scored it's time to stamp.
Here's ANOTHER cool technique....Take any of your clear acrylic blocks...you choose the size...
I chose one that was just bigger than the image I planned to stamp.  I inked up the empty block with Crumb Cake ink and stamped it directly onto the scored White card stock.  Woot!  Ok....as if that wasn't cool enough....  I then stamped the ferris wheel image from "Feeling Sentimental" in Pacific Point ink over top of the Crumb Cake image.  VOILA!  Now how stinkin' cool is THAT??
I love how it looks!!  I just tore the edges and sponged them to give it a rustic feel.

Here are the images in the "Feeling Sentimental" stamp set....

"Feeling Sentimental" stamp set:  Wood Mount #129627   Clear Mount #129630 (Available in English/French/Spanish)


I added two stinkin' cute "tickets" from one of my new favorite stamp sets from the Spring Catalog..."That's the Ticket".  Here are the images included in it...

"That's the Ticket"  Wood Mount: #128072   Clear Mount:  #128075
One of the BEST parts.....It has a matching punch!  WOOT!

"Ticket Duo Builder" Punch - #126883

Ok...I'm off to prep for Wednesday's "Just Cards" stamp camp.  Have you stamped today?
You can find these and SO many other fun stamps and supplies at my Online Store.
Don't forget....you can get the "Feeling Sentimental" Stamp Set (or 18 other items) for FREE now during Sale-A-Bration.  You will earn one freebie for every $50 in orders.

Wishing you a magical day,

  1. You can't imagine how appropriate your card is! I live in the area that was devastated by Hurricane Sandy, which includes the seaside area of New Jersey. This would make a wonderful birthday card for anyone I know. Thanks so much for sharing.
