Stampin’ Blends Ombre Card

Stampin’ Blends from Stampin’ Up! are one of the most versatile coloring tools…

you can use them for shading when coloring

or

create an ombre effect as I did on this card.

With the DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge spotlighting Stampin’ Blends this week, I thought it would be a great opportunity to play a bit.

Graceful Glass Sympathy Card

Time for the DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge, this week it is a “Sketch Pad” Challenge.

DSC#279 Sketch Pad Challenge

Sympathy cards are not fun and exciting to make and quite honestly I avoid them…

BUT,

I know that I shouldn’t because usually when you need them is not a great time to come up with an idea on the fly.

So, I thought this week is a good time to create a sympathy card for a couple reasons….

  1. I need two of them
  2. I tend to avoid them (which I disclosed earlier).

This card was relatively quick to put together put it looks more difficult than it actually is.

I love layers and textures of this card: subtle embossing, velvet ribbon, colored vellum.

 For DSC#279 Sketch Pad Challenge featuring Stampin' Up! Graceful Glass Suite. For details, click through to my blog #stampinup #crackedpotstamper #paintedglass #loveitliveitshareit

What did I use to create this beauty? (scroll down for complete supply list and links)

Stamp Set: Painted Glass – coming June 1st

Paper:

  • Rich Razzleberry (card base: 4-1/4″ x 11″, embossed layer: 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″)
  • Very Vanilla (1″ x 3-1/2″)
  • Graceful Glass Designer Vellum (1-3/4″ x 5-3/8″) – coming June 1st

Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Stampin’ Blends: Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry combo packs

Accessories: Big Shot, Triple Banner Punch, Rich Razzleberry Velvet Ribbon – coming June 1st, Stained Glass Thinlit Dies – coming June 1st

It’s All in the Details: If you look closely, you will be able to see some embossing behind the vellum layer,

I created that by using the Stained Glass Thinlits and my Silicone Craft Sheet, to emboss instead of cut…Isn’t that super cool!

 

For DSC#279 Sketch Pad Challenge featuring Stampin' Up! Graceful Glass Suite. For details, click through to my blog #stampinup #crackedpotstamper #paintedglass #loveitliveitshareit

Graceful Glass Sympathy Card
  1. Color Graceful Glass Vellum panel with Stampin’ Blends.
  2. On Very Vanilla cardstock, stamp sentiment with Rich Razzleberry ink, punch ends with Triple Banner Punch. Stamp butterflies and die cut with Stained Glass Thinlit Dies.
  3. To create embossed layer make a “sandwich” and roll through Big Shot: Big Shot Platform, Precision Base Plate, Silicone Craft Mat, Rich Razzleberry card stock, Thinlit, Standard (clear) Cutting Pad.
  4. Adhere embossed layer and Vellum panel onto folded card base. TIP: Adhesive will show through on Vellum layer, use care to strategically hide it behind the sentiment banner.
  5. Ribbon adheres to Vellum with SNAIL adhesive and banner is attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  6. Address an envelope, write a message inside and drop in the mailbox to show someone that you care.
