Hello my crafty friends! I’m so happy to be here again as a guest designer and I will share with you a layout and a card I made with these beautiful papers.


For my layout, I used the ”Vintage Spring Basics” Collection, the ”6th of April” paper for my background and the ”4th and 5th of April” as a mat for my photo.

First I primed my paper with Finnabair clear gesso and when it was dried I applied modeling paste through a stencil. Then, I sprayed my page with ”Ocean Breeze Blue”, ”Baby Blue Eyes Aqua” and ”Delphinium Turquoise” Lindy’s Stamp Gang mists. When I was satisfied with the result  it was the time for some stamping.

My ”2Crafty” chipboards were covered at first with white heavy gesso and then heat embossed with Stampendous ”Aged Ivory’’ embossing enamel. My title was also treated the same way.

I added my floral clusters and glued some starfishes and shells to complement them.

A final touch with some Finnabair Art Stones  and Colored Fine-Grained Grit in Blue Light here and there and my page was ready.

Now, for my card I used the amazing ”Vintage Romance” Collection. I made two layers, the first one with the ”Passion” paper and the second one with the ”She’s my Lady” paper.

I choose an image of a beautiful young lady from the ”Ephemera Cards” to place in the center of my card. I think this is just perfect for my vintage card. Don’t you think?

Then, I mixed Finnabair Light Paste with ”Peach Opal” Mica powder and applied it through a stencil. Made some splatters with ”Open Arms Amethyst” Lindy’s Stamp Gang mist and made some random stamping.

I primed my 2crafty chipboard and the title with white heavy gesso and then I heat embossed them with Stampendous ”Aged Taupe” embossing enamel.

I sprayed my white roses with ”Blazing Sun” Lindy’s Stamp Gang mist to give them an extra shine.  I added my floral cluster and combined some embellishments from Scrap-Unlimited.

  • WOUW both projects are simply gorgeous. I Absolutely LOVE the card, but aslo really in love with the LO, as it has this lovely beachy feel to it, that I also love. And these papers are just perfect for both. You´ve really put everything together in a wonderful way, and I´m blown away here with soo much beauty.
