August Get Inked - Vintage Transportation!

Hey There Everyone!
I hope you're having a great week so far.
Today I wanted to share August's Get Inked Kit with you and give you a chance to win a set of the stamps for your very own.

This months theme was Vintage Transportation and did I ever have fun coming up with designs for this kit.  Ya know there are just too many fun and funky old timey was to go from here to there.  Some of those inventors were so smart and their creations are still in use today while others fell short.  So this set celebrates those inventions!

Here are the stamps....

And here are the projects for this months kit.
I decided to make an ATC Holder and ATC's to fill it!

The extras with this kit were grey ink and Metallic Rub-Ons (which I love!)
so it was fun to incorporate different techniques on each ATC using these products.

  1. Oh my goodness, I love all these stamps!! How did you make all of these awesome projects so quickly? It often takes me a day for each card I make. Would love a chance to win these. Thanks!!

  2. Thanks Roni for the chance to win!

    I prefer travel in my car.....but I would like to travel in an air globe!...I don't know, but the experience would be magical!

    I like your ATC's

  3. These are wonderful; nice job Roni! My favorite mode of transportation is my car. I really enjoy taking a nice leisurely road trip and seeing all the wonderful people and places our country has to offer. I enjoy traveling by plane, too, because everything looks so different from up above; it's just not as up-close-and-personal. :)

  4. Gorgeous stamps Roni - I love them all, especially the hot air balloon. My favorite mode of transportation would be by ship, the waves acting as a sort of a cradle, see-sawing back and forth.

  5. Beautiful ATCS! I love my car!

  6. Hi Roni -

    What a wonderful set of stamps. I love what you've created with them too. Could you give us a mini tutorial on how you made the ATC Box? I think that's an awesome idea.
    As for my favorite mode of transportation, it would have to be my car. But I would have loved to travel on those old luxury Pullman trains.

  7. love these stamps!
    my favorite transportation/dream is to travel by train like the trans Siberian express....

  8. Wonderful ATC holder and an awesome collection of ATC's! M favorite form of transportation- airplanes. I do not like take off and landing, bit I do like getting somewhere quickly!

  9. Fabulous kit Roni~the images are awesome! Vintage aircraft are my favorite mode of transportation. Love the purr of the engine and the smell of kerosene.

  10. What a wonderful collection. My favorite form of transportation is definitely flying....get there quick. I always wanted to fly in an old prop plane but I guess a jet will have to do. Thanks for the chance to win.

  11. I would love to have this set as my husband flies privately. I guess I would have to say my favorite mode of transportation is the plane because you get there so much faster.

  12. My favorite mode of transportation is clicking my heals together and saying "There's no place like home!" Thanks for the giveaway opportunity! Would love these stamps!

  13. Wow Roni! Those are awesome! My favorite mode of transportation would be a stamping cruise! I say would be because I have never been on a cruise let alone a stamping cruise! LOL!

  14. i want one of those transporters from Star Trek-- get there immediatly. I spend 2 hours a day on a commute so I would save a heap of time...all the better to have time to get crafty

  15. What beautiful cards and stamps. I'd have to say that my favorite mode of transportation these days is actually walking. I drive so much that I wish I lived in the center of town and could walk everywhere. Not very glamorous, but sometimes it's nice to be able to take the time to see everything. Next to that I love to bike to get where I'm going.

  16. These are great stamps and I love your ATCs and the holder. I love flying...everything about it. Well, security, isn't so much fun, but I love watching the people and the excitement of a new journey ahead.

  17. Love the stamps and you really have me thinking on this one. Fav mode of traveling. Since it can be imaginary I would go with flying myself, just me like a bird but with no flapping of arms. I use to have dreams were I would fly, swooping over the ground, marvelous feeling.
    Love your ATCs

  18. the car! i love seeing the world around me! thanks for the chance to win!

  19. Thanks so much for the great giveaway, I'd love this stamp set. My favorite mode of transportation is flying, I love it!! Shari (cricutrookie)

  20. Love the set! I'm already thinking of many projects I could make. Thanks for the chance to win... crossing my fingers.

    hmmm... any mode of travel I enjoy, except for flying because the air pressure just does not make my sinuses happy at all. I endure it if I have to. It'd be nice to be able to apparate like they did in Harry Potter. But back in reality, cars are so convenient for local jaunts and we really enjoy vacation driving trips in the RV. But kayaks sure are a fun way to enjoy our waterways!

  21. Wow Roni, I am just crazy about these stamp images...especially the dirigible and the clipper ship! Your ATC's are awesome as usual.
    My favorite mode of transportation would have to be by bicycle! Although I rarely ride a bike anymore, it was my only mode of transportation while in college and I love the feeling of freedom that it brings!

  22. These stamps are now a must have on my "to get list"!
    I wish everyone still rode horses to work. just think..no more global warming :o)

  23. My father was a Merchant Marine during World War II. I don't know why but I have always been fascinated with the Clipper ships. I live in Minnesota but I love the water. I think it is my love for him.

  24. I'm a bit of an aviation buff so the stamp of the biplane (especially since it looks like an image of the Wright brothers' flying machine) would be much loved. :-) Thanks for the chance to win this great stamp set.

  25. These stamps are just lovely! And you made so many wonderfull projects with them!
    My favorit way to travel is in my dreams; alle is possible and you can choose every way you want to travel! In real I like travelling by car, 'cause it brings me from door to door wherever I want to go. Thanks for giving me a chance of winning these stamps! Greetz, Gerrina

  26. i'd love a magic carpet ride, or the back of Pegasus, the winged horse. wouldn't that be fun? but since i'm scared of heights, i guess i'll stick w either my two feet or the car. humdrum i know

  27. Really great set of stamps with some wonderful images. Even with all the different ways to get around though, I love my car the most. If it weren't for all the traffic, I would say it's my favorite place to be!

  28. Such wonderful ATCs! You are an amazing artist and I just love your blog. Your stamps are also incredible and I am crazy about the vintage style.
    My favorite mode of transportation is probably by car. Not too exciting but it gets me where I need to go. Thanks for the chance to win.

  29. I love the submarine Nautilus from 'Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea'. I could live on it and have plenty of room to craft. lol

  30. I love these ATC's you've made! Vintage travel has always interested me and I would have loved to live then! Except, I'd actually like to be able to live during "all" times...so MY mode of travel would be a "Time Machine"! Imagine being able to actually see these things being invented & tried!! That would be a dream come true!!!

  31. Favorite mode of transportation - car - because I love to see the country & stop whenever I feel like it. Dream mode transportation - hot air ballooon, can't think of a more heavenly way to view the country side!

  32. Awsome ATC's Roni!!! I flew in a twin propeller once and loved it! You can see so much more in them because your not flying as high as a jet....although I love flying in a jet to because it feels like you can just reach out and touch the clouds! What kind of material do you use for your ATC's?

  33. I've only traveled by car and plane but I dream of going cross country by passenger train. I would love to go first class on the orient express I did say I was dreaming didn't I? Wonderful cards Roni

  34. It absolutely has to be a bicycle. It's truely the green way to go & you can see so much more on a bike!

  35. Thanks Roni
    I prefer hot air balloon. It's quiet, cool, fun !!!!!!!!!!

  36. My favorite "real" method of transportation is my van but I wish it were a cloud. Think about how amazing it would be to just be able to sit on one and let it float you to wherever it wanted to go. Kind of awesome.

  37. Uuuuh, wow!
    What a great bunch of sples you made!
    I love the Stamps and how you used them!

    I absolutley love to go by Bike: fresh air, fast forward-coming (can I say so in english?o0) and going home without loopway!
    The only better way of transporting myself through the city would be a steam-driven Bike which looks like the old ones :)



Thanks for your thoughts and comments!
