These Notecards #131527 are FUN to create!! Simply scribble horizontally using the side of the broad tip of Stampin' Write Markers on GLOSSY cardstock!! BLEND sky colors by overlapping. Do not blend the green "earth." TIP: turn your glossy cardstock upside down to cut which will reduce oily fingerprints that interfere with coloring.

20190108_165657

The marker dries quickly. Stamp your silhouette image in STAZ-ON Jet Black Ink #101406. Let dry. 

20190108_165529

Use a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker to color in the Rooster which is an open image. This Home to Roost stamp set is a FREE Sale-A-Bration Promo item with a $50 purchase (usa.) PLAY with different colors!! My next post will have a similar idea for you to try!

Drapery Fold Card

20180723_105310

Sympathy cards are SO IMPORTANT to send, so I try to keep a supply handy. This is called a Drapery Fold. I didn't have a pattern to follow so I just folded the designer paper back and forth, then cut off the excess. I glued only the top edge.

20180723_105324

This Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper #146913 is so gorgeous - you can almost smell the flowers! I love this sympathy card.

If you enjoy my posts, please share my blog with your friends! Appreciated!!


Graceful Glass Vellum

20180704_190102

20180704_190159

Back the vellum panel with white cardstock to keep the colors true. All the flowers were sparkled with Clear Wink of Stella glitter pen #141897. Click the photo to see a larger detail.

Southern Serenade plus Vellum

20180325_191841

I NEVER have enough floral images! Southern Serenade Stamp Set #145921 has a lovely lacey image to pair with the floral. I got out Vellum #101856 which I have neglected far too long! This is the "Stained Glass" Technique. Stamp the image on Vellum, dry, color on the BACKSIDE. It's a nice soft look. This is Pink Pirouette cardstock and Blends. Stampin' Write Markers can be used as well.

20180325_191815

I scored the left edge of the vellum and wrapped it around the back of the layer to attach. I "hid" a glue dot on the back of a flower center to keep the Vellum flap in place.

20180325_191905

Another version - I used Blushing Bride Cardstock and Light Calypso Coral Blends on Vellum. This is a special sympathy card that has already gone in the mailbox.

20180325_191919

Try this good old "Stained Glass" Technique!! I'm sorry Blends are sold out at the moment, but never fear - they are coming! Keep them on your Wish List!
