Hi Stamping Friends!
It's Sunday Showcase time and this week I'm highlighting the cards from my upcoming Stamper Sampler Class featuring Sheer Perfection Vellum. You are no longer able to earn this Sale-a-Bration exclusive vellum, but you can play with it one more time at this month's Stamper Sampler!
I've already featured two of the 7 class projects...click the links below to see details!
Colored Butterfly Vellum Cards—We'll be doing the Old Olive card at class.
Dry Embossed Vellum Pocket Card—We'll be creating the Lost Lagoon version at class.
Designer Series Paper Vellum Overlay Card—With the transparent nature of Sheer Perfection Vellum, it's fun to layer it over a pretty patterned background for a colorful background element.
CASEd from Ronda Wade at Stamp With Ronda.
This is the version we'll be creating at class.
Background Basics—I layered a 3" x 5" piece of the floral Sheer Perfection Vellum over a 2013-2015 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack Crisp Cantaloupe piece of the same size with SNAIL. It's mounted on a 3-1/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Crisp Cantaloupe card stock. I tied some Pistachio Pudding Thick Baker's Twine around it and frayed at the end. It's adhered to a Basic Gray card base with SNAIL.
Sweet Sentiment—I stamped a Nature's Perfection wildflower image in Crisp Cantaloupe onto a 2-1/2" Circle punch-out, and added a Painted Petals sentiment over the top in Memento Tuxedo Black. The circle is mounted on a Pistachio Pudding Starburst Framelits die-cut and popped with Dimensionals. I added a double-layer butterfly accent make with the Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly punches and some Pearl Jewels.
Two Cool—Same elements, I just switched the colors for my second version, including Crisp Cantaloupe Thick Baker's Twine.
Dazzling Vellum Leaves Card—I used the same overlay technique on this card, but I added some glitz to the background, too!
This is the version we'll be creating at class.
Background Basics—I started with a 4" x 5-1/4" Whisper White layer on a Wisteria Wonder card base. I added a Wisteria Wonder Chevron Ribbon banner flush at the top.
Focal Point & Sentiment—I layered the 3" x 3" leaves vellum over Pistachio Pudding In Color DSP Stack paper with SNAIL, then mounted it on a 3-1/4" square of Elegant Eggplant. For a little glitz, I added Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to all of the leaves with a 2-Way Glue Pen.
I embellished the card with a butterfly created with a Butterfly Thinlits die-cut from Elegant Eggplant card stock and a Bitty Butterflies Punch from Wisteria Wonder. It's finished with a Rhinestone Jewel and an Elegant Eggplant sentiment from Too Kind.
Two Cool—Second version is in Island Indigo and Basic Gray. I switched to Island Indigo Chevron Ribbon.
Brayered Vellum Card—This time I colored the vellum by applying ink with a Brayer. It's super quick and so pretty!
This is the color we'll be creating in class.
Background Basics—I started by stamping the Dictionary background stamp in Basic Gray onto a 3" x 5-1/2" piece of Whisper White. Then, I brayered Blushing Bride ink onto the back of a 3" x 5-1/2" piece of the floral vellum pattern. It takes a little time to dry because of the smooth surface, but when it's dry, adhere it to the stamped piece. That is layered onto a 3-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of Basic Gray card stock and adhered to a Strawberry Slush card base.
I added a strip of Basic Gray Epic Day Washi Tape flush with the background element.
Sweet Sentiment—I stamped a Hello There hostess stamp greeting in Memento black onto Whisper White, then punched it out with the 1-3/4" Circle Punch. It's layered onto a Strawberry Slush Flower Medallion punch-out and popped up with Dimensionals over a 3-3/4" x 1-1/4" Blushing Bride banner.
Two Cool—The second version is in Bermuda Bay and Pool Party colors. I like the vertical banner on this one.
3" x 3" Butterfly Thank You Notes—The final two projects from the class are these sweet little butterfly notes! Each card has a different 2-3/4" square Sheer Perfection Vellum background. I punched a Whisper White circle foundation with the 2" Circle Punch and popped it with Dimensionals.
Focal Point—I die-cut Tempting Turquoise and Rich Razzleberry butterflies with the Butterfly Thinlits. Then, I stamped the small butterfly from the Butterfly Basics stamp set in Pool Party and Perfect Plum and punched them with the Bitty Butterfly Punch. One is topped with a Rhinestone Jewel, and the other with a Pearl Jewel. I popped one layer up of the butterflies with Dimensionals; on one card it's the back butterfly and on the other it's the front. Mixin' it up!
