Cut it up Challenge DT Inspiration!

TGIF! This week flew by and it's time for another Cut it Up Challenge.  This week's challenge is Stuck on You Challenge #74, where the project needs to include a sticker and of course a die-cut! Check out all the DT inspiration on the Cut it Up blog and be sure to join in the fun!  Can't wait to see what you create.

For my project I made a vintage valise (similar to the one from my Technique Tuesday post), this time I used Tim Holtz salvage stickers as the accouterments for the valise!.  Kinda looks like my Vagabond, lol! 
Check out my post from Tuesday for a step by step tutorial on how to make the background- inking an embossing folder.

This time I even added a little luggage tag, made from Kraft glassine along with the handle.  I love how this looks like leather.  I applied a bit of Mushroom alcohol ink to the Kraft glassine to give it a more vintage tone. 
The stickers, the ribbon and the postage stamp die-cuts were adhered using my Xyron 1.5" Sticker maker- such an essential tool for adhering small items like this!
Hope you join in the fun this week!


  1. This is a great card; brings back memories of placing stickers from various trips and camps on my own suitcase as a HS student! Love the embossing and inking technique and the luggage tag is the perfect finishing touch! Love this card!

  2. Super cute. Love the little luggage tag!
