Tuesday Patty Bennett and I got together to stamp. I’ve got some awesome cards to share with you today and be on.
We usually each design a few cards and have everything ready to put together. I was short on time, so I pulled out some of the stamps and dies that I wanted to use, that I hadn’t used or used that much. The Jubilee Dies was first on my list, So I die cut each of us two in Whisper White. From there, Patty had brought a bunch of the So Very Vellum Specialty dsp and we started to form our cards. We also wanted to use the Welcome Easter stamp set. The stamp set has 3 animals and the Vellum has 3 colors in the package. Perfect! A plan was formed.
The So Very Vellum dsp is so beautiful. Hard to tell on these cards, but each piece comes embossed. Patty had noticed that if you put the same color cardstock as the Vellum behind the Vellum, it was much darker. Pool Party has Pool Party cardstock, Purple Posy, has Purple Posy cardstock, & Soft Sea Foam has Soft Sea Foam cardstock behind each piece. Make sense?
We started with a card base of Thick Whisper White cardstock, 4 1/4″ x 11″ and then added the Vellum & matching cardstock, cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Next we added the Jubilee Beauty Die cuts, one on top and the other on the bottom. We left about 5/8″ between the two pieces. You will want to add the ribbon now. I will list all the ribbons and accessories in my supply list at the end.
We die cut the largest Oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies in Whisper White. Your animals will be going on each of the Stitched Ovals.
Next we stamped all the animals in Memento Black Ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends. Then fussy cut and added dimensionals to the back, then added them to the Stitched Oval. Add more Dimensionals to the Oval and adhere to the center of the card.
The “chick” card uses the Purple Posy Vellum and So Saffron (light & dark) & Pumpkin Pie Blends. I added the flowers punched from Vellum & cardstock and offset them with a Glue Dot. Added another Glue Dot and attached to my card. The flower centers are Faceted Gems colored with a Dark Mango Melody Stampin’ Blend. I used the Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon tied in a bow. The sentiment is also in the Welcome Easter stamp set. I stamped with Gorgeous Grape and made it into a banner. I did go back and add some Wink of Stella to the flowers.
Next up is the Soft Sea Foam Vellum. I used Light Crumb Cake & Petal Pink Blends to color the bunny. The little flower is from the stamp set and fussy cut and attached with a Glue Dot. It also has a Champagne Rhinestone in the center. I used the Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon for this card and tied in a knot. The sentiment is on a piece of Whisper White cut at 5/8″ x 3″. I also added a couple flowers using the Small Bloom Punch and Petal Pink cardstock. I “winked” the flowers and added a couple of Vellum leaves from the Leaf Punch.
My last card uses the Pool Party Vellum & Gray Granite, Petal Pink & Pool Party Stampin’ Blends for the lamb. The Reversible Old Olive & Pretty Peacock Ribbon is tied into a bow. I added 3 sets of leaves from the Leaf Punch under the lamb cut from Vellum. The sentiment is 1/2″ x 3″ Whisper White and I clipped each end to make a banner. I also “winked” the leaves and added a few of the Noble Peacock Rhinestones.
Oh my gosh! These cards were so much fun to make. I’m starting to feel a little more confident in my coloring with the Blends. That’s not to say that I don’t need more practice, because I know I do. Make sure you check out Patty’s cards. We almost always do our cards a bit different than each other. We have to put our “own” spin on each card.
