Remember Me Card

Hello all!  Happy Wednesday.  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today!
I created this card using the angel wings stamp from the VO Wings set.  I stamped it with Versafine Onyx Black ink and then die cut a circle out of the center using a GMD double stitched in & out circle die.  I took the inside circle and shaded the feathers using Spun Sugar Distress Ink as a watercolor.  Once that dried, I splattered the circle with Black Soot and Worn Lipstick Distress Inks.  Out of that inner circle, I also die cut a heart from the center using a GMD heart die.  I adhered the circle back to the center of the card with ATG, but popped the heart up with foam tape for more dimension.
A bow of Totally Pink Trendy Twine was at the base of the heart die cut.  I stamped the sentiment which can also be found in the VO Wings set and added three enamel dots from the GMD Sophisticated collection.
Here is a close up look at the VO Wings set.

Remember, we have our Wings challenge going on right now! Here is the inspiration photo for it. You can use the pictures, theme, and/or colors to enter.

A good day to have a GREAT day!

Great day to you today! :) Thank you for joining me, Jamie, on the Victorine Originals blog.

I am getting ready for a garage sale (or I guess you would say avoiding that task) as I'm typing this post; and, thankfully, it will be over and finished by the time this shows up. BUT, it has inspired (and exhausted) me.

As I dug through all the stuff that my family has acquired, it inspired me to use different items and techniques for this card; it inspired me to pick up something I found at a local thrift store and use it differently; it inspired me to craft outside of my box.



I LOVE our local thrift shop. I go there frequently when I'm trying to plan a Pinterest Party for my work. While I was there the last time, looking for Christmas ornaments, I found this shiny purple ribbon. It's not really ribbon, it's more plastic, but it's purple, and that's what I love and what's important - and it was under $1, so home with me it came. 

I bought some plastic a few weeks ago, to make my own stencils, after I saw my fellow amazing design team members using that technique. I believe that plastic is still in its package - somewhere. But, when I saw this ribbon, I thought I could use it as a stencil and save myself a step.

I started by sponging ink onto a white card base through the ribbon stencil; then, I repeated in different places on the card with three coordinating colors. I liked it, but thought it needed something else. So, I went into my stash of papers and found this paper-like sheet. It's clear with silver metallic stripes; it's a hard plastic. It covered up some of the background, but then highlighted other parts - it was perfect!

But, I loved this purple ribbon so much, that I needed to add it to the card, too. From there, I just kept raiding my stash. I added a coordinating crocheted flower and some clear buttons.

Then I found the sentiment from this awesome Victorine Originals stamp set! I love being able to use clear stamps to get just the look I'm going for! It's a perfect set for card makers!




I wanted my stamped image to have the same type of look as the background of my card, so I played around with it until I got an image that wasn't completely clear. I ended up sponging ink onto my stamp, and then stamping the image. By using my stamp positioning tool, I was able to repeat that step twice more to get the color I wanted. I inked the edge of my sentiment, popped it off the card and I was good to go!



Thanks for taking a look at my most-recent creation! See more of my projects on my Facebook page!

Happy Birthday to You!!!

Hello & Happy Thursday Everyone!
It's DT Theresa here from Theresa's Crafty Creations
and it's my day to take over the blog--
YAY for me... 🙌

I'm so excited to share this Sweet colorful
Birthday card I made! 





I really like the Birthday Word Print Stamp -
It's not a full background stamp - it's about 3 3/4 x 4 3/4
I pulled out a piece of water color paper & Heat embossed
the stamp with some White Embossing powder then
 I pulled out some Distress Oxide inks in
Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry, & Fossilized Amber
to color over my embossing - It totally makes the words POP!
I added some of my Sheer Shimmer Sparkle Spray and
dabbed it with a cloth -  I let it dry then used a Stitched
Rectangle die to cut it out -

Then, I wanted to add that ADORABLE
Wonky Four Layer Cake Stamp! I embossed it as well -
Using some Purple, Pink, & yellow embossing powder I
had in my stash - I don't own a ton of embossing powders
especially in colors, so I'm a little disappointed that I didn't
have a bright purple or pink... I think it would have stood out a
bit more if I had... None the less - I used what I got! 😊
After it was embossed, I cut it out with my Brother Scan N Cut

I used some Bright dotted paper from Doodlebug Designs and
cut it out with a Scalloped Stitched Die from Gina Marie Designs
I think it looks wonderful on that White Cardstock - I also
used some Fun Foam to pop up the Scallop frame & added some
Dimensionals to the cake - 

I'll be giving this card to one of the Teachers at School --
Everyone is happy to be back at work and back on a 
schedule! :)

From the Garden

Good Morning and Happy Wednesday,

Today is my day to post on the Victorine Originals Blog.  I chose to use 
Pea Pods for my inspiration today.  This is my second project this month using this delish stamp. I recently tried to buy a stamp from a different manufacturer that is nearly identical to this one and it was sold out.  Silly me I only had to look at Victorine Originals and it was right there!!


Tag Recipe:
Pea Pod stamped on Craft cardstock using Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink, I colored in the image using Prismacolor Premier pencils and then used Gansai Tambi Starry watercolors in gold to add the highlights to the vines, leaves and to flick lil dots of gold across the whole front of image to add a bit of shimmer. I then used a long strip of washi tape from my stash folded in half and added to the layer as pictured. Lastly I die cut the layer using KatScrappiness Stitched Rectangle dies and adhered the layer to the front of a craft colored tag base. I did this so the tag would have weight and be thicker. I used a scrap piece of brown ribbon for my picture, but you could use anything you wish to attach to your project.
