Let's get to the fun part and see what Julie, Shay, our guest star, Angie Tieman and The Talent (our supernova creative team) made with it. And make sure you visit Angie's and each of The Talent's blogs for more knock-it-out-of-the-park projects and details.  Don't forget to share some love with them too!



Hi everyone!  I'm really excited about our second release.  This set has such a great vintage feel but you can still achieve a modern look as well.  There are some great examples of that below.  As for this card, I was digging in my Basic Grey stash and found the Clippings papers and just had to use them.  That's saying a lot for me since I usually just look at my Basic Grey papers, and rarely use them.  I don't want them to run out - you know what I mean?  I pulled together a few of the papers and a couple of the coordinating stickers (the cute key and the little heart circle). I think the dark colors, vintage theme and pops of red look really great here in the collection, so I ran with that color scheme.

I wanted to use the men's shoes, so I stamped them on one of the subtle pattern papers in the pack and then colored them in with my Prisma pencils, and finally cut it with my circle punch. Quick and easy embellishment. Then I turned a Plain Jane manila tag into something more special.  A little Vintage Photo Distress Ink added with an ink blending tool, and the sentiments are stamped with Color Box Chalk ink in Dark Brown and Warm Red.  The tag was finished off with some suede ribbon tied in a little knot.



This set really can be used by anyone to make an easy card with a lot of impact.  Exhibit A above.  This is a very simple one layer card playing around with the fun purse image found in Parentville.  I used some fun colors in Mid-Tone Shadow Inks by Hero Arts. I then used Versamark to silver emboss "Mom" (yep, it's silver although the camera didn't pick that up too well).  To give the mom more impact I stamped the flourish under it.  Change up the colors to customize it and add some bling, splatter, enamel dots or other embellishments depending on which mom you are sending it to.


This is another simple card.  I stamped the Dad sentiment using Versamark and embossed it with a blue metallic embossing powder by American Crafts.  Next I stamped the supporting sentiment and shoes.  I colored in the shoes with Copics.  This panel I added with dimensional adhesive on top of a card base embossed with an embossing folder by Lifestyle Crafts. I then added a border of brown glitter tape by American Crafts.  Now you get to see the professionals do their magic!

We are so pleased to share with you guest star, Angie Tieman's fantastic projects!
