Painted Glass Bundle & Graceful Glass Designer Vellum

Painted Glass

This is one of the cards we made at my June Handmade is Awesome class featuring the Painted Glass Bundle and coordinating Graceful Glass Designer Vellum.  The ladies in the class loved this card, and the vellum over the bright new in-color, Pineapple Punch, really makes it pop!  Our new Stampin’ Blends color so well on our Graceful Glass Designer Vellum, and the vellum comes with the images pre-printed so you all you have do is color!

TIP:  You can color either side of the vellum with the Stampin Blends. For a darker effect, used the side with the raised black outlines and the Dark Blends.  For a lighter effect, color the “flat” back of the vellum.

TIP:  Use just a little of our Liquid Tombow Glue on the corners of the vellum to attach it, and you will not see the glue through the vellum.

If you would like to attend one of my classes, email me today!  Or you can place an order for any or all of the products used in this card by going to my online store (link above).

Building my New Site – #Imbringingbirthdaysback

I am in the process of building this site so that I can share my love of stamping with you! To kick it off, I wanted to share a birthday card I sent out this morning to support the Social Media Campaign that was started by Shannon West, #Imbringingbirthdaysback.

The campaign was created to help bring back the sending of cards for birthdays and other occasions.  Over the past few years, technology and Social Media have caused us to send fewer cards.  Instead, we just email, or post to a Facebook wall, or Tweet, or whatever to the person wishing them Happy Birthday.  Stampin Up wants to change that!  Even with Social Media, who doesn’t still love to receive a card??  Let’s face it, a post on a Facebook wall just isn’t the same.  Yes, it is cheaper and more convenient, and with the reminder Facebook sends you, it’s on time and you didn’t have to be organized or embarrassed if you forgot.

In order to participate in the campaign, myself and some fellow demonstrators have posted on Social Media that anyone that wants to can send us their birthday and mailing address, and we will send them a handmade card for their birthday – no questions asked.  We have received an enormous response with this!!

Today, I am sending this card that I received from Marilynn Bennett using the Beautiful Bunch Stamp Set and coordinating punch as a swap from #OnStage2016.  Isn’t this just lovely!

I am going to have a Menu heading on this site that I will post all the birthday cards that I send and another Menu heading for all the cards that I received at #OnStage2016.
