Vintage Sign

Happy Tuesday!! Lisa here to share a card with you today using the new Whispers Vintage Sign from the May Release.

I wanted these cards to look like the vintage signs were hanging in a flower garden. I used a combination of several Die-Versions dies.

For the backgrounds, I used my all-time favorite Whispers Bricks Background die. Beneath the cluster of flowers is a Whispers Ring of Hearts die.

The Vintage Sign was popped up with foam tape. The dragonfly is a Wee Petites Buggy die. It was cut twice, with the top layer covered with sugar coating. A Whispers Butterfly Garden die was added along the bottom. The butterflies were fussy-cut and covered with sugar coating.

Victorian Sewing Machine

Anne here and today I'm showcasing the new Vintage Sewing Machine die.  I decided to create a small box to hold some basic sewing supplies, basing the box on this tutorial (although I made mine slightly smaller).

To start off, I die cut the sewing machine from white cardstock and then "colored" it with various embossing powders from Sparkle N Sprinkle: Black Detail, Red Apple, Silver Detail, and my own concoction of Red Apple, Daffodil, and Tangy Tangerine mixed together for the thread.  The handle and the spool were colored with Copics and a scrap of fabric was added under the needle, just for fun.

To add dimension, I used one of my favorite techniques - die cutting it from fun foam and gluing the fun foam to the back of the die cut.  That way there's no fussing around those small openings, trying to make sure none of the dimensional foam shows through.  Quick and easy!!

I also wanted some sort of border for the front of the box, so I die cut the spool and thread part of the die several times and then cut off the parts I didn't want.  I also heat embossed it with my own mixture.

Lace was added to the front cover and along the sides and some (old) alpha chips by Doodlebug Design were added to the front as well.

Be sure to check out what the rest of the team is creating with the latest Die-Versions Vintage release.

Vintage Boot

Hello Die-Versions Fans,

Today I want to share with you a card I made with one of the new dies from the  May Release.  I used the Vintage Boot die along with the Whispers Heart of Hearts die.

For this A2 card I started with brown card stock for the base of the card.  Next I added a piece of patterned paper that I distressed with my Zutter DIA, and then I inked the edges with Brown Distress Ink.  Next I cut out the Heart of Hearts die using off white paper and brushed it with the same brown ink.  Next I cut out the Vintage Boot twice, once in gold paper and once in the maroon paper and pieced it together and then attached it to the the vanilla paper, distressed the edges with my Zutter DIA and then inked the edges with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink and attached it to the card.  Don't you just love this Victorian Boot?  There are so many awesome dies in the May Steampunk/Victorian release!!

I hope I have inspired you to create something fun today!  Please be sure to check out the Die-Version Blog often for more creative ideas from the DV Design Team and share with us your creations on the DV Facebook page.
