Vellum Tree and Leaves

Hello Papercrafters,

I'm back with another card using the same technique as the last 2 cards I shared......I needed a sympathy card for a family member and love the elegant quality you can achieve by stamping with versa mark on vellum then adding embossing powder to heat set.  I wanted to add some color to the tree and the leaves so I just used a dauber to sponge some ink onto the back of the image, did some fussy cutting and added to the framed area.  

This technique adds a stained glass look to your card and is becoming a favorite of mine, with so many colors of embossing powders and ink the possibilities are endless. 

  I also added some dsp along with a sentiment and more leaves to finish the inside....

 Here's my supply list:

White cs #100730

Modern Medley dsp #126926

Papaya Collage Stamp set c #132055   w#126612

Thoughts & Prayers Set c#128751      w#127805

Gumball Ink #126861

Emboss Powder Black #109133

Versa mark # 102283

Pearls #119247

I hope you will be inspired to create a card using the stained glass technique, try it it's fun! 

Thanks for stopping by,

Papaya Forever Embossed

Hello Papercrafters, 

I'm back to share a card very similar to my last post, in fact this one followed the other during the creative process, you know how one idea leads to another or how a cool technique just has to be repeated, lol, well I love the gingham circle in the 'Kind & Cosy' set and I loved the way the dsp peeked through the vellum so I decided to use the frame from the 'Papaya Collage' set and case my first card :)  

Here's the front

Once created I thought the sentiment was nice for an anniversary card so I finished the inside and added the sentiment on the inside.

This card is very elegant, perfect to celebrate a wedding Anniversary....the dsp I used is 'Modern Medley' you can find it in the newly released SU me if you need a copy or visit my SU shop   now until the end of July, 2013 if you buy 3 packs of dsp you get one Free!  Great time to stock up!

Thanks for stopping by, Have a great weekend!

Kind & Cosy with Butterflies

Hello Papercrafters,

As most of you know Stampin'Up!'s new IBC has recently been released...(if you need a copy let me know and I'll get one to you) and I am participating in a SWAP with some other demo's, we are using new sets from the new IBC.  Well I choose to use the set Kind & Cosy, I just love the gingham and knew I had to have it, lol, when I created my swap card I also combined it with the hostess set Morning Meadow.  I cannot share my swap card just yet but will after all swapping is done :) But while I was creating my swap card I was inspired to combine some heat embossing on vellum to create a greeting.  I loved the way it turned out so much that I created another design using the same method and I love, love, love, both of them.  Here's my greeting....

I really like how you can see the dsp through the vellum, looks so elegant.

I finished the inside using the dsp on the front and a perfect sentiment.
This gorgeous set is a must have I'm so glad I got it, you can get your set from my SU Shop!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
