Crafty Secrets - National Scrapbooking Day - $50 Giveaway - Photo Challenge


Good morning Happy May Day and Happy NATIONAL SCRAPBOOKING DAY!!!! In honor of NATIONAL SCRAPBOOKING DAY Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage has been having a Fabulous Celebration all week long with several $50 Giveaways!! Several of the Design Team Members will be announcing the winners for the $50 Givaways on their blogs today.

Starting today Vicki, Heidi (that's me!), Linda, Melissa, Michelle and Flo. will all be posting $50.00 Crafty Secrets Giveaways and you just need to leave a comment to be entered (and an email address in case you win).

Today is also Crafty Secrets Challenge Day and Vicki Chrisman our Design Team Coordinator gave us a challenge to create a project using a photo in honor of National Scrapbooking Day. We could make a card, layout or an altered item as long as it has a photo. For my project I decided to create an 8 x 8 layout. I have had this picture of my two great uncles for awhile and thought it would be great for a layout but I wasn't too sure what to do with it. BUT then Sandy, owner of Crafty Secrets came out with this NEW Car Classics Stamp Set and I knew it would be a perfect match! I started with a white piece of cardstock and randomly stamped images from the Car Classics stamp set around the outer edges using Vintage Photo ink and then I inked the edges. I think I used almost every stamp in the set to create the background.Next I applied Caribbean Blue and Crushed Shells Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels. After applying the Glimmer Mist I placed a Kleenex on top of the cardstock and used a brayer to pick up the excess Glimmer Mist.After I had the background done then I made a border using a piece of paper from the Radiant Paper Pad from Crafty Secrets and the word block stamp the is included in the Car Classic Stamp Set to create the border. I also distressed and inked the edges with Chestnut Roan ink.Here is a close-up of the border.I stamped the car image from Car Classics onto white cardstock and colored with Copic markers and then I used 3D Foam Squares from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES By 3L™ to add some dimension to the car.These are the Copic markers used to color the car image.For an embellishment I added this Word Key from Tim Holtz and I also added a few brown vintage buttons.
Supplies~
Stamps~Crafty Secrets-Car Classics
Paper~Crafty Secrets-Radiant Paper Pad; The Paper Company-White, Brown
Ink~Tsukineko-Memento Rich Cocoa; Ranger-Distress Ink Vintage Photo; ClearSnap-Chestnut Roan
