Vintage Galore Collection: Stamps, Dies, Stencils, Hot Foil Plates, and More!
What has the glamour of the 20s, the elegance of the 40s, and the charm of the 60s? This release, of course! With this collection of products, you will be transported to a different era. We have taken inspiration from our favorite decades and have modernized them for the contemporary crafter. These stamps, dies, stencils, and hot foil plates will help you effortlessly create designs and projects you will adore. We hope you love them as much as we do!
I began my project by stamping several of the blooms and foliage from Golden Days Stamp and Die Bundle using Permanent Black Ink on some marker-friendly white cardstock. I colored each stamped image a pretty lavender-pink shade for the blooms and soft, minty green for the foliage. I used the white gel pen from the new Must-Have Gel Pen set to make the ends of the stamens of each flower really pop! Next, I die cut each image using the coordinating die from the Golden Days Bundle.
The blooms are such a lovely size, and so much fun to color! I love that you also have the option to stamp and color the outlines, using the layering stamps, or use the coordinating stencil bundle to do some fun ink blending techniques!
Next, I worked on the card front. The new Dotted Tile Cover Plate creates a beautifully subtle background, simple enough to allow the colorful flowers to stand out, but the addition of the stitching helps to add some subtle texture to the background. I die cut the Dotted Tile Cover Plate background from some subtly shimmery iridescent white cardstock. The use of the shimmer cardstock is just enough to make the background a bit fancy!
Next, I arranged my blooms on the die-cut card front, allowing some to hang over the edge and trimming off the overhang to use on another section of the card front. I made sure to have at least three pops of the bright pink flower so as to maintain the “rule of three.”
For the greeting, I combined the previously-released Sentiment Banners hot foil plate with the new Sentiment Strips 3 to create a holographic sentiment strip. How fun is the “birthday queen” sentiment?! I adhered all of the die-cuts to my shimmery stitched card front using Instant Dimension Foam Tape for lots of dimension and texture.
Well, that's all for this project! I have two more projects using the Golden Days stamps, dies, stencils, and hot foil bundle on my blog, as well. The options and combinations with this product suite are absolutely endless and so much fun!
