Hi everyone! I’m popping in this morning to share a sneak peek… a card I created using some amazing printable ephemera that you’ll be able to get on October 1st! Mixed Up Magazine is offering up a free Printables sheet with Issue 9 that will go on sale on October 1st! OMG, there are so many pieces of awesome funky vintage printable ephemera on this sheet that you won’t want to miss! If you’re not already a Mixed Up Magazine subscriber, just order Issue 9 and this awesome printable sheet is yours! I’ve used every one of these amazing pieces on my card, plus two sentiments from the Snarky Words Printables. UPDATE: Mixed Up Magazine has apparently undergone some changes and their blog has moved, so these links may no longer be viable. 


I printed the entire free Printables sheet, fussy cut each piece of ephemera, and inked all the edges. I also cut two sentiments from Snarky Words Printables and inked them as well. Then I began laying everything out the way I wanted.


Adhering everything down is always the most fun part to me. I adhered some of the pieces flat and popped some of them up on foam tape for a little dimension. I wrinkled some. Whatever looked good in the moment, lol!


I finished the card front by splattering watered-down Walnut Stain distress ink all over (protecting the Little People with a scrap of paper) and then I smeared some distress grit paste in a few places with a small spatula.


I left the inside blank to write a custom message. Of course I inked the edges of all these pieces as well.

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
