The fun Curved Occasions stamp set is a unique mix of images and sentiments.  I have used it today to create a birthday card with Vintage items.  That sounds so much better than Old!!!


Stampin' Up!, curved occasions, stargazing, azure afternoon, blends, jackie beers


Stamp Set

The Curved Occasions set has this cute little VW Bug convertible.  Anyone of my age group loved those cars.  So it had to be the star of this card.  And the disco ball, that’s just a given! LOL!!!  I wanted to use the roller skate because I actually roller skated competitively in my early days.  It would have been a great pairing of transportation from the time. 🙂  But the person the card is for did not skate, so the disco ball gets to be the second piece of nostalgia.

The little bug is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then colored with a variety of Stampin’ Blends.  And the disco ball is stamped with Smoky Slate.  It is a littler duller than the flashy original balls but that was the best I could do.  And again, this is a one stamp set card!


The papers used were blues to go along with the color of the bug.  I found this perfect DSP in the Stargazing Designer Series Papers.  It is the reverse side of one of the galaxy looking sheets.  The brightness of the Azure Afternoon stars was a perfect match.  And pairing it with the Azure Afternoon card base tied everything together.  Of course I had to add just the thin layer of Basic White to separate the blues as well as help the focal White layer blend in.
