Good morning and welcome to the ESAD Autumn/Winter Mini Catalogue Blog Hop! I don't know why this post is showing as 31st because it is definately 1 April! The catalogue goes live today and runs until 31st August 2010. I hope you enjoy my projects, no need to know what time they were finished *g* they are here, that is all that matters! I just love everything in this catalogue, it was so hard to choose what I was going to do but I really do love the Vintage Vogue stamp set and matching wheel. I also bought my Vintage Vogue set in the new clear mounted format which is brilliant, so easy to store and the new Stampin' Up! clear mount blocks are fantastic to use being grooved on all four sides.
You should have arrived on my blog from Fiona Platzer
I have noticed this morning that blogger seems to playing up and it won't let you click on the photos to enlarge to see the details so I've reloaded a different view of the scrapbook page so that you can see a bit of the effect on the title.
Ok, for my first project I have a card using the Vintage Vogue stamp set and Very Vintage jumbo wheel. This card also uses the new "new" In Colours of Soft Suede and Rich Razzleberry and also the Top Note Die cut with the Big Shot. I thought the oversized tea cup I'd been drinking from lent itself to the vintagey/shabby chic feel of this card - until I noticed the coffee stains on it lol! (Well it is quite late/early *g*).
Next I have a 12 x 12 scrapbooking page using a few different techniques and elements. The Very Vintage wheel has been wheeled behind the photo in Versamark (I filled an empty jumbo cartridge with versamark reinker). The title has been done using the Timeless Type chipboard alphabet which in a spur of late night inspiration I decided to run through the Big Shot inside the Perfect Polka Dots textured embossing folder. I then sponged the letters with Close to Cocoa ink to make the detail of the embossed dots stand out. Once again I've used the Top Note die for the journalling card - the stamped sentiment "Life happens love helps" was very appropriate in this photo! I have stamped the flowers from the Vintage Vogue stamp set in Chocolate Chip ink onto Close to Cocoa card, cut them out, set jumbo eyelets in them and adhered them to the page. The ribbon along the bottom is the Chocolate Chip stitched wide grosgrain.
