PaperArtsy Lynne Perrella Altered Journal


Hey guys!  I'm so excited to be sharing a Destination Inspiration post on the A Vintage Journey blog today.  Our travel bag this month was filled with a great range of goods, so join me to see how I combined each component.  I've altered a journal in coordination with our current challenge, Altered Art.  There's plenty of time left for you to play along!

Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop with STAMPlorations


Happy Friday!  I woke up super early to try and squeeze in one quick card to promote the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  I realized I had never used this coffee border stamp from STAMPlorations and decided to do an embossing resist pattern with Distress Inks.


I know this is very simple for me, but it was 5:00 am and I was in desperate need for coffee!  LOL!  I stamped a couple of images and fussy cut, then layered with a Darkroom Door sentiment, some string and glittery elements.  I won't have a card a day for this hop, but I hope you will take some time to play along and support the team's efforts.  Thanks to Amy for organizing this season after season.  <3

Prima Amber Moon Fall Cards


Hello!  It's time for a new challenge at Frilly and Funkie and our hostess Kathy has chosen the theme To Everything There is a Season.  She says, "Fall is one of the most beautiful seasons of the year.  Brilliant leaves, fall flowers,  crisp blue skies, and migrating geese fill the season with a sense of wonder and anticipation  You're invited to create a vintage or shabby chic project that captures the beauty of fall.  You can make a card, a tag, share a journal entry or any kind of project you desire. Just be sure to create it in the shabby chic or vintage style and be sure to use fall (not Halloween) images and colors."


I have been counting the days for the new Prima Marketing Amber Moon collection to ship!  Oh how I am in love with this exquisite paper line!  I decided to pair some staple die cut elements with the papers and new flower range to create a couple of cards.


I grabbed the Raven flower pack because it had the most variety and included 12 flowers.  I was afraid they would end up being tiny, but happily no!  I inked up some die cuts to tuck beneath my flower and added a seam binding bow.  This card features a couple of the Say It In Cristals (SIIC), which are exquisite!!!


The butterflies and sentiments from both cards were fussy cut from the paper pack.  I repeated the same dies on my second card to show versatility, plus it's handy to keep working with the items on your table.  ;0


There are so many other sentiment cards just waiting to be used!  I only wish I had more time in the days.  I'm sure you will be seeing lots more from this collection as time allows.


One favorite detail was how the ink absorbed into the veins from the embossing created when cutting the leaves.  I know a lot of people die cut preinked card, but I love inking my cuts after because of details like this and how the edges automatically get inked.  I hope you've been inspired and will play along with our current challenge for a chance to win a $25 gift card to the Funkie Junkie Boutique!
