Society Lady ~ Card

Oct 22, 2013

Today I’m showing you how to create a simple all occasion or notecard using my Antiquated Collection Society Lady stamp set. First using Coffee Archival ink stamp the image of the lady onto cardstock or patterned paper. I used a sheet from the Pink Paislee Cottage Farms line. Next, cut a piece of patterned paper slightly smaller than the front of the blank notecard.  Using a Fiskars scalloped circle punch, punch a scalloped circle into the patterned paper piece in the lower right corner as shown in the photos. Apply Platinum Stickles along the outer edge of the large patterned paper piece as well as along the edge of the punched scallop circle as shown in the photos and let dry. Trim the area around the stamped image so it is a bit larger...

Last Sneak Peek of the Sneak Peeks

Jan 19, 2012

As you can see by the sneak peek of this sneak peek I was not kidding when I said I was loving Distress Crackle Clear Rock Candy Paint. I love the look on top of the ad from the Antiquated Collection Perfumery stamp set. And just look at the detail of the perfume bottle and crown, it’s spectacular. Judi at Pink Persimmon did an amazing job cleaning up all the images. I colored the perfume bottle using Distress Ink Worn Lipstick. All I did was wet a paintbrush with water then applied a small amount of worn lipstick ink on to the paintbrush and used the ink as a watercolor. How simple and it’s the perfect vintage shade of pink. Just make sure you use Archival Ink when you stamp your image. This ink...

Stamped Muslin

Dec 16, 2011

Here is a wonderful way to create custom ribbon for any project or gift. All you need to do is tear strips of natural or bleached muslin about 1″ wide and as long as you desire. Then place the Lavender Salts stamp from my Antiquated  Collection ~ Perfumery Stamp Set ~ Pink Persimmon onto an acrylic block, ink the stamp with Coffee Archival Ink and stamp all along the length of the torn muslin strip. I alternated the top, middle and bottom areas of the stamp to create a collage look. Super simple and so pretty. This would look gorgeous tied around a gift wrapped in butcher block paper and accented with a sprig of pine, holly or mistletoe. May Flaum posted a tutorial on her blog “Confessions of  a Chocoholic” showing you how...

Always adding more…

Dec 9, 2011

So the more I looked at the domino art piece I posted yesterday, the more I felt it needed more… it just lacked that little something extra. So back into the scraproom it went as I had ideas in my head and well, once and idea enters my head I can’t do anything else until I give it a go. So here is what the finished piece looked like, yesterday. And here is what it looks like now. Since I could not apply alcohol ink to the face to darken the complexion, without worrying that the alcohol ink would ruin the stamped image, I decided to stamp the image onto the blank margin of a vintage book page then carefully and  ever so precisely cut out the face. I then placed the cut out image...

Domino Art

Dec 8, 2011

Each time I use a domino it brings me back to how I acquired them… One day as I was taking Ansley someplace after school when she was around 13 or 14 years old, as we were about to leave the neighborhood I noticed dominoes scattered all over the street. Well, I’m sure you can see where this is going… I immediately stopped the car (thankfully, we live in a quiet neighborhood) and had her jump out to pick up as many as she could out of the road. I just could not stand the thought of these getting ruined by cars driving over them again and again. Well, Ansley was able to pick up all of them and not one car passed down the street. She on the other hand was horrified that I would...

Christmas Baking

Dec 6, 2011

One of the things Ansley always looks forward to every holiday season is baking Christmas cookies… wait, let me rephrase this… me baking Christmas cookies. Each year, it is not Christmas to her unless I bake her all her favorites… Chocolate Chewies, Lemon Cookies, Pecan Sandies and Red Velvet cookies with a Hershey Kiss in the middle. The girl keeps me busy during the holidays for sure. But I love it and it makes me happy that she loves them so much. So Ansley and her cookies were the inspiration behind this card. I thought the Maya Road Heart Tart Tin Bottlecap was perfect to start with, then using Jet Black Archival Ink, I stamped the Antiquated Collection Misses’ Aprons onto grungepaper three times so I could cut out the apron from one and...

Simple Stories and Maya Road

Dec 5, 2011

I hope you are ready for a fun blog hop this week. Simple Stories and Maya Road will be featuring lots of awesome projects for the holiday season all week using the Simple Stories 25 Days of Christmas line and loads of Maya Road products. Last night, I created a card that reminds me of a holiday scene from the early 1900’s. A lady and gentleman standing in front of their Christmas tree looking out the window as people pass by their home all decorated for the season or maybe watching snowflakes as they gently fall to the ground. Either way it is a magical evening for them both. The window is attached to the front of the card using foam squares to give it a bit of dimension. I attached the miniature holly...

Gentlemen’s Ornament or Gift Tag

Dec 1, 2011

I love the detail you get from the Gentlemen’s Puff stamp in the Antiquated Collection ~ Fine and Dandy Stamp Set. Each fine line in the Puff can be seen and it makes me so happy. This project can be used as an ornament for your tree to represent the men in the family or attached to a gift and used as a gift tag. The back is covered with the blank margin from a piece of vintage book page. I used two Maya Road Rectangle Foundation chipboard pieces as the base for this project. One complete rectangle front was covered with vintage sheet music. Then just the outer piece of the second rectangle was stamped using the fir tree stamp from Little Red Wagon by Pink Persimmon. I used Jet Black Archival Ink...

Vintage Christmas Home Decor

Nov 30, 2011

I love accenting our house with little pieces tucked here and there for the holidays. I feel it adds a bit of coziness to the house. This year, I decided to make something that was a bit more appealing to Ansley. She is not the traditional vintage colors of red, green and gold as I am. So I made something with a vintage pink, aqua and silver color scheme. It worked perfectly and Ansley loves it. Now, she is hoping since I created something with brighter colors maybe I can get past the vintagey old looking stuff all together, GASP… can you imagine… this will never happen and I think deep down inside she realizes this as well. I was thrilled when I discovered the label from the Crown Lavender Salts bottle in the...

Victorian Christmas

Nov 28, 2011

I love decorating the house for Christmas but must admit some years I decorate more than others. The one thing that is pretty consistent during every holiday season is my love for old fashioned ornaments. I have one 4′ tree that sits on top of a table and is decorated with all handmade paper ornaments that reminds me of an old Victorian Christmas. This year, I plan on adding a few additional ornaments to this tree that I feel will accent it beautifully. Although, to balance out the tree I’m going to have to create more of each ornament using different stamps from my Antiquated Collection stamp sets. I created this ornament using the Antiquated Collection ~ Fine and Dandy, Society Lady & Perfumery Stamp Sets by Pink Persimmon. The Scallop Frames and Hanging Chandelier...

Antiquated Collection and Studio 490…

Nov 24, 2011

Wendy did it again… I got this fabulous surprise in my inbox today just after getting a text telling me to check my email. I cannot even describe the feeling of what it feels like seeing my stamps used in projects but I can tell ya it is one awesome feeling. When the Antiquated Collection stamp sets were being put together never did I at the time think of how perfectly they would go with Wendy Vecchi’s Studio 490 Stamp Sets and Art Parts. But look for yourself… they work together perfectly. In this project, Wendy used the gentleman a.k.a. dapper dude from my Antiquated Collection Fine and Dandy stamp set. His robe is inked with the new Ranger Festive Berries Distress Ink. I’m so happy I just purchased this set while at The...
