Double Take Flag....

Hello & Happy Thursday Everyone!
It's DT Theresa from Theresa's Crafty Creations
and it's my day to take over the blog!

YAY for me... I'm so excited to share a wonderful
Fourth of July card with you! 





Some of you may not know, but... my son is in the Marines,
and anytime I can send him well wishes, I do! I thought this
Fantastic Double Take Flag Stamp would be fitting!
It is a Large stamp, and the stars are separate from the stripes,
which made it easy to stamp in the colors I wanted!
I also like that the stamp has a vintage/distress design 
which I thought was pretty neat - 😊
The Sentiment is computer generated & I printed it out
on Vellum paper... then die cut it out with a banner die.



** Other Supplies Used **

Cardstock - Stampin' Up, Recollections, Vellum
Flag Stamp - Victorine Originals (Double Take Flag)

Mouse Shaker Card

Hello everyone!  Beth from Beth's Beauties with you today.  I have this bright shaker card to share with you.
 I started by stamping the V.O. Mouse With Umbrella stamp (also part of the Mouse Set 1) with Versafine Onyx Black ink on watercolor paper.  I used Crayola Watercolor pencils and an aqua brush to color in the image.  I made it into a shaker card using GMD double pierced circle in and out dies, acetate, foam tape and sequins.
I used a GMD stitched rectangle die for the front panel.  The papers I used are from Doodlebug Design Fun In The Sun 6x6 pad.  The sentiment is from V.O. Floral and Sayings stamp set and I added some GMD Watermelon Colors enamel dots around it.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

The Beauty of Spring

The beauty of spring

Hey crafty friends, I up again here on the Victorine Originals blog this week to share a pretty yet simple card with you all. 

This beautiful flower stamp is so pretty and reminded me of all the blooming going around right now. 


I dug thru my paper stash and found this beautiful nature pattern paper from club scrap. I actually picked this up at a flea market along with some other sets they sent out. Love it. I layered a few different colors to help bring out the colors. I stamped my image a few times and only colored/highlighted the main flower with a pretty purple gel pen from super doodle. 
Sorry the photo is darker as it was a cloudy day before the rain. I still love the way it made the glitter shine.

Don't forget to head join in our challenge: 4th of July. It ends this Friday, still plenty of time to link up your project.

If you want some beautiful stamps, head over to the website and go shopping, there is a pretty amazing designs. Don't miss out.
Link to my blog, head on over and leave me a comment there too. 
Thanks for stopping by. 
Hugs

Fun Stamping Technique with Modern Background

Hi, everyone and welcome! Lisa from The Relativity of Paper sharing a fun stamping technique using the edge of your ink pads to create a streaking effect.


I used the Modern Background Stamp and tilted my ink pads so that I could run the edge of the felt pad across my stamp. After you get the first layer or two of ink down then you can go back and add more streaks wherever you may want them. 

This is a one layer card and it's relatively easy to make. Just play around with scrap paper and get the hang of tilting your ink pad and swiping it across the stamp.

Okay, now it's your turn to give this technique a go! Let me know how you like it or if you have any questions.

So Fancy!

   


Hi, everyone and welcome! Lisa from The Relativity of Paper sharing a winter-themed card with you today. I know, we have one foot in Summer and here I am sharing a Winter-themed card with you. I will tell you a secret about myself, I'm not a Summer girl, never have been. I love Fall and Winter, it's the happiest time of the year for me. So, to say I had a little fun working with my Winter papers is an understatement.


I fell in love with this stamp when I saw it, she is just so Fancy, right? The stamp is called Lady with Three Dogs. And there is another one called Lady with Two Dogs that is Fabulous, too! 

Lady with Three Dogs (3033-M)Lady with Two Dogs

Didn't I tell you they are both Fabulous? 


To create this card I stamped the image using Memento Ink Nautical Blue using a stamping tool, stamping the image twice. I like a sharp, dark image. Since I was going with a winter-theme,  because that coat screams winter, I decided to run the stamped image through my Xyron and covered it with glitter. Not just any glitter but my all time favorite glitter, Fairy Dust by Donna Salazar. The rest of the card is die-cutting and layering. The sentiment is stamped using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and I added one Pretty Pink Posh Sequin. Nothing difficult about this card at all.
