Hi everyone! Today I have some adorable “vintagy” paper crafts, that have lots of 3-D elements, for you to swoon over.
The first is a vintage clock that Debbie made using the Tim Holtz’s Assemblage Clock and she customized the color by applying Rustic Lodge Alcohol Inks and a cosmetic sponge. The clock is designed to come apart, which made it easy for Debbie to embellish with Homeward Bound papers and Embellies. She included her own 3″ tall sepia family photo, Rosette Spice Flowers, Cream Crepe Ribbon as well as Copper Jewel Border Dazzles™, Travel Vinyl Tags, Artsy Collage™ Travel Paper Art and Artsy Additions Travel Charms.
I think this clock would work equally well with a contemporary theme and color photos. What a great Mother’s Day/Father’s Day gift!
This card features the very versatile Circle Vine Cutting Die by KaiserCraft. I cut two circle vines from green Picket Fence paper and inked the edges with brown ink. I layered the circles on a card covered with striped Picket Fence paper with the border along the bottom edge. I used Zots™ to secure the lavender rose, leaves and purple bow from Picket Fence Ribbon Set. The postage stamps and tiny flowers are from Picket Fence Paper Tole and I used foam tape to give them a little lift.
I used Zots™ to secure 2 small acetate butterflies among the flowers and “Sending Warm Thoughts” and tiny butterfly Inside/Outside Greeting Dazzles™ stickers on the card, overlapping the circle vines die cuts, as shown.
I also added Mixed Berry Sequins to the lavender rose, tole flower centers and randomly placed them on the card. To adhere, I simply drug an individual sequin across the glue stick surface. I find this is just the right amount of glue to keep them in place.
That’s all for today. Hope you enjoyed some 3-D inspiration. Happy crafting!
