Vintage Vogue Stamp Class.....

This is my Vintage Vogue Stamp class, which we will be making tomorrow.

The class includes a long Easel Card, a Square Card, a Small Gift Box and a Tall Gift Box with handles.

The boxes are decorated with the Very Vintage wheel, Can you spot the butterfly? The photo of the wheel doesn't show a butterfly but there is a lovely one when you roll out the whole width of the Very Vintage image.

We are making the Bravo Burgundy, Regal Rose and Old Olive colour combination.
Swap the colours around to Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum and Certainly Celery. None of the colours used are retiring. There is a jumbo cartridge in both Bravo Burgundy and Perfect Plum which makes it so much easier when inking up a whole sheet of cardstock.
The Tall Gift Box is ideal for a bottle of perfume or a smelly. I made it with a wider top as well.

The smaller Gift Box is so cute!
You can get the instructions for this Stamp Class on the right.

The other thing I did but doesn't show up on the photo's. I sprayed one of the sets with Shimmer Paint which I had mixed with rubbing alcohol, water and champagne shimmer paint. It looks gorgeous in real life! I expect the lady in the post office will be asking if I have been crafting again tomorrow!!! Note to self must get box to spray into! hee hee.

I got the spray bottle for the shimmer paint from Boots, you know the holiday size empty bottles? I used 3/4 rubbing alcohol, 1/4 water and poured a few drops of the paint into the mix. Shake extremely well before you use it and be careful by making sure you spray in a well ventilated room, ie not in a garage full of giggly ladies!!!!

Hope you enjoy the class,

Thanks for looking,
