Metal Love Card

One of the few remaining magazine devoted completely to rubber stamping is The Stamper’s Sampler. I recently posted a review of their latest Winter issue along with a card inspired by Tim Holtz, who is the featured artist. Click here to read my review over on Craft Gossip, including how to make my Tim inspired Valentine card, this is a great masculine style, perfect to give to the man in your life.


Gears and Cogs and Watch Parts, Oh My!

Here’s a couple of Steampunk themed collages I made recently. They both use a cool steampunk girl stamp from Sweet Pea stamps. The larger collage is on a vintage Bingo card with metal gears and cogs, move-able clock hands, it’s hanging from wire on metal grommets with a key charm.

The Art Card is on a reproduction small Bingo card that says Woman’s Auxiliary Air Force, it also has a metal gear.

Here’s a shrine box I recently finished, I reused a mint tin and painted it brown and then added book pages from a vintage French text book to the insides and front. I added a small metal frame with a picture of the Eiffel Tower on the front of the box. On the inside  left did a collage with some torn vintage travel tickets, postage stamp and postage cancellation rubber stamp. On the right side I did a collage of a woman standing in front of the Eiffel Tower wearing a big lovely hat, I added words from the French book that say “Yes, it’s a beautiful hat”, another postage cancellation and a souvenir sticker.



It’s Good to be Queen

Here’s a pretty little collage I made this week. I got some really neat pewter crown charms and added one to an image of a sweet girl along with the word “queen”. I mounted her on paper from a vintage Italian book and black and brown cardstock. I aged a very cool metal embossed frame I had with some brown ink and mounted it all on a piece of chipboard for some stability and added a metal hanger to the back. I think it’s got a simple but very elegant look to it.
