We’re in this Together Cards …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share two cards with you!!  First let me start with some concerns about sharing / mailing our cards. Based on the information I have found … the virus only lasts 24 hours on cardboard (paper) yet they have found no evidence to the virus transferring by mail.

I prefer to play it safe, I have cleaned my supplies with beach water and / or sanitizer, and as you saw in my picture yesterday, my hand sanitizer is right on my work station.  If you have a cough or feel sick, I would suggest refraining from sending cards … which if you don’t feel good, is that last thing you feel like doing! Hopefully you get one that will cheer you up!

My first card … reflects the sentiment of yesterday.  I used the sentiment from the “Good Morning Magnolia” stamp set which was inside my card yesterday, is now the front of my card today ….

I used the pretty little boots filled with flowers from the March 2020 Paper Pumpkin to create my card.  The background is the “So Very Vellum” Specialty Designer Series paper that is a FREE product you can earn during Sale-a-bration. I have three cards that will feature the Vellum … on design for each color in the package.

The boot card features the “Pool Party Vellum” which really makes the boots “pop”.  The texture on the Vellum is already there so no need to pull out your BigShot for that.  The used a left-over die cut from the Stitched Rectangle dies. The cute little hearts come from the Paper Pumpkin kit and were enhanced with our Wink of Stella and popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Here are the supplies that I used for today’s cards. Paper Pumpkin is a great option for stamping while we have to be apart 😦  Plus … when purchasing the any of the Subscriptions listed below … you qualify for FREE Sale-a-bration items!

Here are the original designs … Mine are all alternatives!

My second card uses more boots … and features the “Soft Sea Foam” Vellum.  These boots come from the strip of boots that are used for the middle card, and are left over from the card I made yesterday.

I cut down the front of the note card enclosed in the kit and cut it in half … it represents the distance we have to keep between us at this time, but the sentiment (also included in this kit) shows that we are all in this together … and we will over come this ❤  Not just as a nation … but as a planet. Maybe this is God’s way of bringing us all together.

I have to mention that I used the Tombo All Purpose Glue to attach the Vellum onto all my cards.  I apply it lightly, over the lines of the embossed design and then smooth it out with my finger or a sponge dauber.  By doing it this way … you won’t get wrinkles from a heavy glue, and it won’t show up under your vellum 🙂

I have one more of the vellum colors “Purple Posy” to share with you tomorrow!! Meet you back here then.

Feel free to LIKE my Facebook page as well. I’m going to be sharing stamping tips and more. AND … I’m going to try a FACEBOOK LIVE … I will let you know when that is going to happen so you can join me!!

Thank You and Have a beautiful Sunday … Stay safe! 

 

Flowering Foils & So Very Vellum soon to be released …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you enjoyed yesterdays Sneak Peek into the second release Sale-a-bration items because I loved playing with them so much … I made another one for you! Today’s card features the Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper and So Very Vellum Specialty Designer Series Paper again.

I’m using the same floral pattern with the Pool Party vellum today …

Just as I did on yesterday’s card I used Tombo Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere it … notice you see no adhesive lines.  I cut another of the flowers out of the patterned paper and instead of leaving it plain as I did yesterday, sponged Pineapple in the the center and then Pool Party on the petals using the Sponge Daubers.

You will notice a little Pool Party on the leaves as well but I then went over them with Garden Green sponge dauber.  I wanted to make the inner curve of the petal really show depth so I came in with the Dark Pool Party Stampin’ Blend.  I also used the Stampin’ Blend on the little buds.

My greeting comes from the Peaceful Moments stamp set. It is part of the Peaceful Moments bundle with the poppy dies. I stamped it in the coordinating Pool Party and the Whisper White was cut with the Stitched Rectangle Dies … I like the way it sets off and frames the greeting.

I have a list of the supplies I used today …

The Flowering Foils (got that wrong on my picture!) and So Very Vellum will be available in only a few days, so I could not pass up sharing today’s card. I love the play on play color by sponging my flower today and using the Pool Party Vellum for my background.
Thanks so much for joining me today for another of the Flowering Foil / So Very Vellum sneak peek.  Please let me know if you have any questions about any of the products that I used today.
Happy Weekend! Linda

Second Release Sneak Peek: Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I am so excited to share a Sneak Peek of two new Sale-a-Bration items that will be available on March 3rd … the Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper and So Very Vellum Specialty Designer Series Paper!!  These products are amazing on their own, but together … WOW!

I began with a base of Whisper White cardstock so the So Very Vellum Specialty Designer Series Paper was highlighted against the background.  I used Tombo Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere it … notice you see no adhesive lines. Apply it lightly to the embossed areas and you won’t see a thing!

Next, I fussy cut out the beautiful pair of flowers from the Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper.  My stampers who love the “Rose Gold” are going to flip over this paper!! This design incorporates both the Rose Gold and Silver foil … beautiful.

I wanted to show you that the beautiful Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper can be colored as well.  I lightly colored my leaves with the Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Duo.  Soft Seafoam is one of the three colors in the Very Vellum Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I will be sharing more with that paper in the next couple of days (so much to show you!!).

Once I did my coloring … easy breezy, I used the Mini Dimensionals to pop up the image. They fit nicely behind the buds on our floral piece and then I cut border around them for the center of my piece.  If you haven’t tried them yet, you really should and then you’ll notice the wide border around the minis … it’s perfect for placing in the center of your pieces.

My greeting comes from the Peaceful Moments stamp set. It is part of the Peaceful Moments bundle with the poppy dies. I stamped it in the coordinating Soft Seafoam ink and punched it out with the 1-1/2″ Circle Punch. Again I used the Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue … because the vellum is embossed, it already raised my greeting up enough to compliment my floral image.

Here is a list of the items I used in today’s card except for the two new Sale-a-Bration items which will be available March 3rd.

 

Thank you for joining me today, I hope you enjoyed the sneak peek at the new Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper and So Very Vellum Specialty Designer Series Paper. Keep watching for more!!

Have a great day, Linda
