Happy Friday Friends! As we wrap of the week, we have two beautiful projects to share with you today. Our January release is in full swing below with Vicki featuring our Spring Lilacs set and Rebecca has a beautiful card featuring our Vintage Floral Collection! We hope today’s post leaves you inspired to get in the craft room this weekend! Here’s Vicki sharing her gorgeous tag with us!

Inspired by Stamping - Vicki Dutcher - Spring Lilacs Tag

“Hi there, Vicki here again.  For today’s project, I made a tag.  I will be using this tag as my 2014 bookmark.  I started by stamping the background with the script stamp from Background Basics 3 in Versamark and embossing with clear embossing powder.  I then sponged over it with yellow and orange.  Then, I started layering. My final touch was to stamp and sponge my svg cut bird from Spring Lilacs. I am thrilled with the end result and am now set with a new bookmark.

Next up we have the very talented Rebecca sharing a lovely card! Here details throughout are just amazing. Here is Rebecca sharing our Vintage Roses in full bloom.

“Hello everyone, it’s Rebecca here and I’m happy to show you some of this month’s wonderful new releases!  I treated myself to some crafting time with the new,‘Vintage Roses‘ stamp set.  As you may know, for me, it is time happily spent when coloring and fussy cutting are involved.  It is paired with patterned paper from the new, ‘Vintage Floral‘ paper pad…

The ‘Vintage Roses‘ stamp set is positively delightful and the gorgeous background paper from the new, ‘Vintage Floral‘ paper pad makes me happy!  Now, we have the option of digitally printing these patterned papers or working from printed pads…

For this card, I used alcohol markers to color the larger stamped roses and some glossy accents to create water droplets…

I mounted a small round design from the ‘Vintage Digital Printable’s‘ collection onto a metallic gold card stock disc.  Then I punched the edges with a flower punch and used adhesive foam to raise it up.  The sentiment used the word ‘Sweet’ from the ‘Beautiful Iris‘ set and the ‘you’ from the ‘Vintage Dress Form‘ stamp set.  I often mix and match words with different fonts and from different sets, to expand the possibilities.  When inking only a portion of a stamp, I cover the part I’m not using with some removable tape.  After inking, remove the tape and stamp away!  I also did some irregular coloring on the sentiment tag to add a bit of age…

After cutting the white banner to support the fussy cut and colored rose, I dry embossed intersecting lines, 1/4″ from each edge using a score board and then distress inked the edges.  I think it added a little definition to the tag. ~ Rebecca
