New stamps from A Vintage Girl!

Hello everyone! I've been having some fun with stuff from A Vintage Girl! Not only their chipboard but they have new stamps at Blank Page Muse!


The piece I did has a mix of some of the stamps along with paper (sold out!) and chipboard from A Vintage Girl!


I had a cutout cardboard page left from the Steampunk Dreams Dress Form Album from another project I did. I decided to keep it primarily the chipboard as the background and added things on top. I embossed the bottom of the dress form and stamped the butterfly stamp onto a piece of colorful fabric and cut it out. 


I embossed some bricks and adhered them with stucco for a more realistic look. I also embossed some pipes that attach at the dress form. In the above pic, the paper underneath the cage portion had some red pipes in the picture which I used to keep the pipes going.


The brick-framed window is mounted on foam so that it provides some space between the corset for a better 3D affect. The corset stamp was stamped onto fabric, then embossed. 



I added fabric and trim to the top of the dress form and added my face with the butterfly stamp.


The cutout chipboard page is adhered on top of a piece of thin cardboard that's covered with another piece of paper from the paper collection. I think the bricks on that page give it good contrast.



I think you'll really love these new stamps and all the products from A Vintage Girl - so much fun to play with and create some interesting and different projects in that vintage, steampunk style!

It's never too early for Christmas!

We're in the middle of October but it's never too early for Christmas!  I'm guest designing today for Arty Divas and created this cute little Christmas vignette using a tuna can!


I kept the lid attached so that it would fold down and I could expand the scene.


The inside and lid are covered in Christmas scrapbook paper. I had a roll of cork duct tape that fit perfectly around the inside and outside of the tin. I've embellished with paper dolls, snowflake paste, mini Christmas trees and presents, and gold and silver pearls.




The scene on top is sitting inside of part of a rusty telephone bell.




So easy to create fun scenes and vignettes and a change from using the normal wood boxes!  I hope you'll stop by this challenge blog and join in the creative fun!

I think they're still cool looking in the daylight as well!


Be careful - that's the kiss of death 💋


I mixed the Ocean Spray and Spiced Candy powders to get a purplish tone. And those eyes 💀

Catch a falling star ⭐

Hello everyone! Got a little cutie patootie gravy spoon that I've upcycled into a whimsical little display piece!


Silverware is so much fun to use as a canvas and can be personalized for gifts! How cute would this be sitting on an old cabinet in a farmhouse or in a baby's room!?



It really takes minimal effort and is also a great way to use up those scraps and bits and pieces!

Hello? Hello?

I love phones, especially the older ones! So I made my own version using a bottle and old handset using Graphic 45's Communique collection!


I loved the shape of this tall bottle and just knew it would make a fabulous phone. I printed out an old phone dial and embossed the handset and the bottom. The crackle at the top turned out amazing!






I wish it really worked! When I was carrying it outside to take pics, my hubby said 'Going to make a call?' 😃  I really love making decor pieces out of bottles - so many different shapes and sizes to spark the imagination!

Leave your fears behind

Is it Halloween yet? Well, leave your fears behind...because there's a new challenge at Creative Artiste!


This mixed media tag incorporates chipboard elements with embossing and a creepy doll stamp from my Soulful Dolls stamp collection at Blank Page Muse! 



I like the all white background as an alternative from the usual black or orange of Halloween - it allows the elements and message to pop! 

So what will you create? Stop by the blog and enter the challenge  - it's always anything goes!
