This idea has been circling my mind for quite some time and I’m super excited to bring it to life!
It’s my take on the Spotify Glass Plaques – but in card format. The artwork emulates the screen when listening to a song on Spotify (a popular music streaming service). I’ve cut it in black vinyl to give it a luxurious feel.
The theme for this card was inspired by the gift – a vintage typewriter plant pot. It’s for a friend who turned 40 this week and I can see it being the perfect addition to her craft desk!
The typewriter is from a retired set that I haven’t been able to part with yet – PS You’re the Best stamp set. I’ve stamped it in Misty Moonlight ink and coloured with Seaside Spray and Misty Moonlight Blends.j
The flowers are from the Art Gallery stamp set, which coordinates with the background DSP for this card – Fine Art Floral. I love the texture of this DSP and it worked beautifully with my vintage theme. Turning 40 is a perfect vintage – don’t you agree!
The code at the bottom of the panel is real – when you scan it on the Spotify app it plays Happy Birthday. I love an interactive card!
Happy birthday wishes have never been so much fun!!!
Hey there! Welcome to a Stamp Review Crew hop with my international stamping friends. We all create using the same stamp set – giving you a whole hop of ideas!!!
Today’s chosen set is Daisy Delight from the Annual Catalogue. This set first appeared in the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue and holds a special place in my heart as I was selected to present this stamp set and matching punch at OnStage in April 2017. You can see my projects by clicking here.
For my project I wanted to try a little grungy/vintage look with the daisy. My previous projects have been bright & sunny, I had a different look in mind for this card.
With Sahara Sand as my chosen colour palette, I stamped and cut two daisies on Whisper White, and cut two more just from Sahara Sand cardstock. I scrunched the flowers to give them a ruffled look before adhering them all together.
I then added three layers of cardstock – Sahara Sand DSP from the Color Collection DSP,, vellum and Sahara Sand cardstock. I’ve added textured elements to each of the layers – distressed & ripped edges on the striped DSP, vellum and cardstock but extra distressing to the Sahara Sand cardstock. To the top layer I repetitively stamped the petals from the Daisy Delight stamp set and then scrunched and smoothed before adhering to the vellum layer.
The base is also Sahara Sand with a Stitched Rectangle as the base layer (this was my only concesion to my usual neat style – I love the contrast!).
This theme was fun, so I carried it through to the middle of the card adding more of the gorgeous striped DSP, a Stitched Rectangle for the sentiment panel and another distressed daisy. Little Miss Papercraft looked at me in horror when I started scrunching my freshly stamped daisy!!! You have to be gentle so you don’t rip off the petals, but it adds some great texture.
I’ve purposely left this card without a sentiment. I like the boldness of the daisy as the centrepiece and didn’t want to add anything else!
There’s this super cute stamp set on page 48 of the catalogue that I couldn’t go past.
PS You’re the Best is quirky & fun – and so easy to make cards with!
I made two styles of card. The first is Clean & Simple (CAS) using the typewriter as the centrepiece and a Blackbery Bliss, Crushed Curry, Smoky Slate & Whisper White colour theme.
The fonts in the stamp set are a mix of vintage & classic – and include a perfect mix for a variety of occasions. Although, secretly, I’m looking forward to getting out my typewriter and making some sentiments of my own!
It would also match well with the font in the Labeler Alphabet stamp set.
The second card is much more fussy – taking advantage of the vintage tones of the stamp set.
I’ve added in the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut DSP, Subtle Embossing Folder and some grungy background stamping.
The colours are the same – Crushed Curry, Blackberry Bliss, Smoky Slate & Whisper White. The Crushed Curry DSP is from the Tea Room Speciality.
Which cards matches your style??? My typical style is much more the CAS one on the left – but I had so much fun breaking from tradition and making the card on the right!
