"Antique" Inspired Layout

This month's theme is "Antique". I don't have very many old photos that are really good quality and the ones that I do I have scrapped before, so I decided just to do a "Antique" inspired age. This photo is older, but not antique! This is our daughter when she was young. She has a baby of her own now!!!

I made my own custom frame by cutting a piece of WorldWin chipboard. I just used my craft knife and made a window type frame. I used several layers of Metallic Copper Ultra High powder on this.


I also used the "Simply Amazing" stamp set and made a cameo accent. I just used the Opaque Bright White powder on black cardstock. I used Earthtone Pepper for the frame of the cameo.

Here you can see part of the frame. I added some lace and blooms with some punched leaves also.

Here again you see part of the frame and a few little corner accents.

I used the "Vintage Wallpaper" stamp with Primary Ebony powder also. I love the look of this stamp, especially black!

Here you see another peek of the background stamp.

I inked most of the edges with black ink. I added a few extra embellies here and there, but liked the way it turned out. I'm not sure if this is really Antique, Vintage or what, but this is what I was inspired to do! I hope you join us this month and create something of your own!!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Your piece is gorgeous! The frame looks cool, love the cameo & damask ppr. As to inspiration, I think this has elements of both vintage & antique. Can't believe I've been working on a vintage piece for this challenge. I obviously didn't read properly, what a shame. Thanks for sharing yr inspiration :))

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D

It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme.




I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time.

I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them.

I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid!


Here are brief instructions on how to make it:



STEP ONE

Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles around the square adding in some t…

Life's A Beach

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you're all well and getting very creative this month!
As this month's challenge is summer and I live on an island it seemed only natural that my inspiration card would feature sea and sand.
To create my beach scene I started off with a piece of pale blue card and a rubbed a Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad across the top several times. I then sprinkled WOW Peppermint Tea Powder and Under The Sea Glitter over the top, tapped off the excess and melted with a heat tool. I created the sand underneath using Gold Pearl Powder.


For the sea I ran a line of PVA glue in the middle of the sky and sand with my finger, sprinkled with Under The Sea Glitter and melted with a heat tool. For the waves I added small areas of PVA straight from the nib of the bottle when added Opaque White Powder.




The birds and sentiment I have used Opaque British Summer Powder which is one of my favourite new powders, great colour and great name!
Finally, I added beach in…

Hugs & Kisses

With this one I used the Altenew Halftone Hearts Stamp Set with matching word dies.

I stamped on a panel slightly smaller than my card base and embossed with WOW! Pink Robin, Goose and Bird of Paradise. I then die cut two hearts 'layered' in the panel, stuck the middle back in and raised the outer to create an eclipse card. I stamped the 'hugs & kisses' on a piece of card stock and did the Sparkle technique (instructions i…
