All Aboard for the Stampendous! Shaped Cards Challenge!

Yup!  It's Saturday and that means we have more Stampendous! Challenge inspiration for you!  This month we have been having a BLAST with shaped cards and today is no exception!  I had a ton of fun with my card for today!  I used the Railroad Poster stamp (comes in wood or cling and is available at Michael's stores), along with some Tarnished Mica Fragments and fabulous Aged Gold embossing enamel from Stampendous! to create my card.


Union Pacific


I cut the ticket shape with the Art Philosophy cartridge on Sally the Cricut. The sentiment is a fabulous stamp from SRM Press!

I love how the aged embossing enamel fit with the image so well! I also brought in some May Arts burlap string and some super fabulous vintage buttons! I love vintage buttons. Just say'n.

The strip of patterned paper is October Afternoon and the tissue tape is from Tim Holtz. I also made use of my Tiny Attacher to add a few little staple accents.

I've got to be honest. I kind of love this card. It's not a style I do all the time, but when I do I always enjoy the process! This one was WAY fun!

Adore this card, Jingle! Love your "ticket to ride" shape and you've done a terrific job with the mica and powders and all! Sorry about the paper cut! :)

Incredible! Love the fragments, the ticket shape and of course the poster stamp. I just saw a movie about the making of the Canadian Pacific Railway. Your card is the perfect representation of that exciting time.
