I started this card with a Daffodil Delight card base measuring 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ folded in half.  Next I used a 2″ x 5-1/2″ piece of the Graceful Glass Designer Vellum.  This stunning vellum [a[er comes in 12 different patterns of 6″ x 6″ paper and is elegant in it’s original state or in the case of this card, I turned it into stained glass by using Stampin’ Blends markers on the back side of the vellum.  I then attached the vellum to the card with Mini Glue Dots strategically placed so they wouldn’t show through the vellum.  I ties a piece of 1/8″ solid Real Red Ribbon around the card front and tied it into a bow before adding a Basic Black Banner.  The final step of this card was to stamp the sentiment from the Painted Glass stamp set and pop it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

As I said the new items lie the Graceful Glass Designer Series Vellum and the Painted Glass stamp set aren’t available until June 1st, but all of the other items are available to order now.  Also don’t forget that there are tons of items on the retired list from the Occasions catalog and the current annual catalog.  Don’t forget to get those while they’re still available.  You can check out the list by clicking on the links below.

Sneak Peek: Rooted in Nature stamp set

I’ve got a Sneak Peek for you today.  Excitement is building as we’re getting closer and closer to the release of the new Annual Catalog which goes live on June 1st.  I’ve paired a brand new stamp set called Rooted in Nature with some current favorite product.

Stampin' Up! Rooted in Nature stamp set, Stampin' Studio

Rooted in Nature is a 16 piece stamp set with beautiful natural images designed to be used with a variety of techniques.  I’ve stamped the images in Soft Suede, Tranquil Tide and Grapefruit Grove and added a couple of the new Leaves Trinkets which are copper colored embellishments that pair fantastic with the 1/4″ Copper Trim. To keep with the earthy feel of this masculine card, I went with a card base of Tranquil Tide and added the Wood Texture Designer Series Paper.

Here’s the same card (we made this one at On Stage in April).  This uses the Natures Poem Designer Series Paper and the Natures Twine.  These two cards show that you can create different looks by using the same layout, same stamp set and same color inks, but change out the Designer Papers and accessories.  Which is your favorite.

It’s a Beautiful Day

My friend Lisa Curcio shared this card on a demonstrator share group I belong to.  I think it’s a stunning use of the Love What You Do stamp set which is part of the early release special going on this month.  This card uses just a clear block to stamp the “square” image.  Read on to find out how.
