Thank You For Everything....

Hello & Happy Thursday Everyone!
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 a Lovely Thank you card.

I was really drawn to the Flower pot frame stamp... I think it's
because you can color it, along with add anything to the center.
I wanted a sentiment in the center of mine... So I went
with a couple of different stamps - I'm using the small "Thank You" Stamp
along with the "Happy Everything" Stamp -- What I did was cut my
Happy Everything Stamp in half.. so I could just use the "Everything" Word.
I love that most about any stamp.... You can cut them and use them
where you need them on a project! My Card design is Mojo Monday Sketch #479.

** Other Supplies Used **

Cardstock - Recollections 110lb., Strathmore Water color, SU

Dance In The Rain Card

Hello all!  Happy Wednesday.  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today!  I created a card that is a little different from what I usually make to share with you.  This one has a lot of watercoloring on it.
I started out by stamping the Victorine Originals Dance in the Rain stamp with Versafine Onyx Black Ink onto Canson XL Watercolor paper and then heat embossing it with WOW Clear embossing Powder.  I added the green grass and the rainy gray background with watercolors.  I then used Stampabilities Slate Gray ink and the Victorine Originals Backgrounds set to add little flecks on the background paper.  I added a pair of die cut rain boots by the sentiment.
For the top of the card, I cut three clouds using GMD stitched cloud border dies and papers from the DCWV Silver Leaf stack.  I wrapped Bumblebee Trendy Twine around them for a little pop of color and then adhered them to the background that I had created.

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

I'm Late, I'm Late for a very important date!!!

I'm Late, I'm Late
For a very important date!!!

Hi everyone.  Its Amy here today to share my card using the White rabbit and the I'm Late sentiment.

These Amazing stamps sure take me back to my childhood. 

I had the perfect paper to use, it being somewhat like the crazy Alice and wonderland world we remember.
After choosing my papers I began stamping away trying to find the right color ink to use and wether to emboss or not. 
I stamped this rabbit image probably 10 times. 
I settled with the black ink and to heat emboss. I think it brought out the image wonderfully. 

I decided to add a little white between the dark colors to make it pop. 
And after placing my sentiment for a while in different spots. I thought it looked better inside the card. 

I added a clock brad which I cut off the metal brad part in the back and added 3D dots to make it pop up a little on the card. 

I hope you enjoyed my post today.

You're So Cool!

Hi and welcome, everyone! Lisa from The Relativity of Paper here with you today and I'm sharing a bright, summery card featuring the Double Take Ice Cream Stamps. I love the sketchy feel of this stamp and how you can use them separately or together. 

You can stack the ice creams on top of each other, too. Super cute. For this card, I first stamped the ice cream on scrap paper and cut out for masking. I randomly stamped the ice creams in pink, orange, green, and yellow masking them and then stamping the cone. To fill in some of the white space I randomly stamped the ice creams and then used a dot from the Dots Set to add a few dots. Die-cut and adhere to a patterned paper, I'm using my Perfectly Plaid paper here. Finish off with sentiment and a few enamel dots. 

As always, thanks for joining me.

Feature Friday with Lisa

Hi, everyone and welcome. Today I'm featuring the Victorine Originals Dots Stamp Set and sharing all the cards I've created with it, so far. I love this set because the possibilities are endless. As you will see, it's perfect for creating backgrounds, use it as the focal point of your card, it offers two great sentiments, and three of the dots have the words Happy, Joy, Love. You cannot go wrong with this set.
Dots Set (Unmounted Only) (10599-X)
 Here I used the dots to create a fun background.
 Here I used the dots and Happy Birthday sentiment as the focal point of my card.
Tip: Don't be scared to cut your stamps. The birthday sentiment comes like you see it above with one stripe on both sides. I carefully cut the stripes off and then split the sentiment giving me more options. Keep the stripes to create plaid backgrounds by pairing it with the bigger stripe.
 Adding Red and Blue dots to the tags gave them a fun festive feel for my 4th of July goodies. 

Using the sentiment as my focal point and stamping the dots with VersaMark ink for a tone on tone background. 

I created a fun background for my nautical themed card just by using the large stripe and changing ink colors. 

This next card is my absolute favorite. I love this technique of adding ink to the stamps in a swiping motion, it really changes things. I have a video tutorial on my blog, The Relativity of Paper.

As you can see the possibilities truly are endless with this amazing stamp set making this a must have in my book. Already have this stamp set? Please be sure to share your projects with us on our Facebook Page or by using @victorineoriginals on Instagram.

Fireworks, Family & Fun

Hello all, Design Team member Jamie here! I can't believe we're already past the 4th of July. Where is the summer going? 

This scrapbook layout is of pictures from this same time three years ago. My oldest was just a little one then, but she loved having fun with fireworks - granted, her love was pretty much limited to the smoke bombs, the poppers that shoot confetti and the snaps. But she was the only little one, so we catered to what she liked, and enjoyed the outdoors as much as we could with our family.

I love when I'm able to add a fun background to a layout that really makes the page pop! It looks like it takes a lot of effort, but it's so easy! I used my Pazzles to cut out the backgrounds in red for both pages. I adhered them to white paper, then added the extra little stars in multiple places. Matting the photos in a blue that matched the colors from the photos and some white really helped them to stand out from the background!

I love the simplicity of this layout; but I also love that it really showcases what the pictures are all about: celebrating the holiday for this wonderful country where my family and I are lucky enough to reside!

I finished my layout off with a couple more stars and some wonderful stamps from Victorine Originals

God Bless America made the perfect title for this layout! (Am I the only one who breaks into song every time I read those words?)

For the other page, I wanted to use a sentiment of another nature. This is another layout of the time spent during my mother-in-law's last days. She was one of a kind! I want my children to know that when they see these layouts, and I believe the right sentiment can convey that message. Count Your Blessings was the perfect choice for this layout.

Thank you for checking out my layout!

Summer is in full swing, and so is our latest challenge here at Victorine Originals! See all the details for our Summer Vacation Challenge (just click on those words), and then use these images to be inspired!

Have a wonderfully crafty day!

Felt with the heart

Felt with the heart 

Hi there friends
Amy here to share my latest
Creation with you.
I've been playing alot lately with color.  For today's project, I used the beautiful sentiment stamp "Felt with the heart".

This stamp is so full of truth. 
And such a beautiful saying for a tag.
Here's my project.

I used a precut tag for this. Using my Gelatos, I made lines up and down the tag, then rubbed it in using my finger.  I then put my tag in a box and sprinkled with Ken Oliver color burst.  Spritzing with water until it looked how I wanted it. Using my heat gun I dried my tag. I then stamped my sentiment and heat embossed it with black embossing powder.  I added some lace ribbon to top off the tag.
I hope you enjoyed my project today. Don't forget to join in our weekly challenges. We have new mood boards for the challenges and they are so inspiring and amazing. 
Head over and check out my blog for more details and a full product list for today's project.
Happy 4th of July weekend.

Multi-color Stamping

Hi and welcome, everyone! Today I'm sharing a multi-color stamping technique featuring the Victorine Originals Map Background Stamp.  I know not many of us think about using Map Stamps for feminine cards but I say why not?  By adding a little pink and using a more feminine matting it can be done. 

The second card has a more masculine feel to it but it uses the same stamping technique. I just left off the pink and changed the sentiment. 

I hope you'll give this stamping technique a try and let me know how you like it. 
Here's a video tutorial to walk you through the whole process.

As always, thanks for joining us!

Paper Piecing and Stamping

Good Afternoon Victorine Originals Fans!  I wanted to share with you this beautiful Iris stamp I made using one of our very own gorgeous stamps!  You can find it here: Victorine Originals.

I did a technique called Paper Piecing to make this card and I truly love how it turned out. This is what you will need:

  • White Cardstock
  • Black Cardstock
  • Oval Die
  • Oval die with Scalloped edges
  • A colored piece of cardstock for your stamped pieces , of your choosing
  • A matching piece of cardstock for your background
  • A piece of cardstock for your card base to match your colored pieces
  • Momento Black ink for to stamp your images
  • A Stamp of your choosing, from Victorine Originals

This is how I put it together.  although you can find  a few videos on You Tube also.

  • Take the white cardstock and stamp your images in a close arrangement.
  •  Take the regular oval die and position it so the stamps are somewhat hanging off the die so you will be cutting the images off.
  • Cut the scalloped black die and glue the white and black ovals together
  • Now take your pattern paper you want your stamps to be in and stamp your images on the pattern paper.
  • Fussy Cut your images out from the pattern paper.
  • Glue the fussy cut images over the white images in the oval , applying the glue on the white oval being careful not to go over the edge with the glue.  You want your image to hang over the scalloped black oval.
  • Then lay your matching colored background cardstock on your base cardstock and glue
  • I then pop dotted my ovals before I laid them on my base so my images would really stand out and you could see how they hang over the edge.

I really love this technique for stamping and hope you give it a try.  If you do, please share it with us at Victorine Originals.  We would love to see it!

There is still time to join our challenge also!  The theme is Summer Vacation!  Link up your project to our challenge and you could be our next winner!  We look forward to seeing your projects!

Thanks for joining me!
