New Sale-A-Bration items are coming in March! Stampin’ Up! is releasing a second batch of brand-new limited-edition FREEbies will be here soon, including the So Very Vellum pack. There are three different colors, Pool Party, Soft Sea Foam, and Purple Posy, and each one features this cool dot pattern that feels both delicate and industrial mixed in with a little pop. I pushed the design in each of these directions for these cards featuring the So Very Vellum.
I combined this with a simple image from the Varied Vases stamp set stamped with Pool Party and Highland Heather ink with the outline stamped in Jet Black Memento. I added the centers to the flowers with the Light Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blend and tied a piece of Baker's Twine around the front. The card front is attached to a Pool Party card base.
I stamped the roses from the To A Wild Rose stamp set in Petal Pink ink on Whisper White cardstock. I added the centers with Crumb Cake ink. I cut these out with the Wild Rose dies. I also cut leaves from the Soft Sea Foam So Very Vellum as well as other leaves from Soft Sea Foam cardstock. I layered these on the card front.
I cut a tag from the Soft Sea Foam So Very Vellum using the Wild Rose dies. I adhered this to the card front by putting liquid adhesive where the greeting would be added. This way, the sides of the vellum are loose and you can't see where it is attached. I tied the card front with a piece of White Seam Binding that I colored using a Light Petal Pink Stampin' Blend. Then, I added an oval cut with the Stitched Shape dies and stamped with "thanks" from the Here's a Card Stamp Set. Finally, I adhered the card front to card base using Crumb Cake cardstock.
For the Eiffel Tower itself, I used the Parisian Dies from the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog. I cut the tower from Gray Granite cardstock then I heat embossed it by sponging the front with Versmark ink and covering it with silver embossing powder. To age the Eiffel Tower, while the silver embossing powder was still hot, I sprinkled on Copper embossing powder and heated it again.
To a Blackberry Bliss card base I added a Blackberry Bliss card front that I had run through my Big Shot with the Subtle 3D embossing folder. I added the sunset to the front of that and then the Eiffel Tower.
The sentiment is from the Parisian Beauty stamp set. I stamped it in Blackberry Bliss ink on Whisper White cardstock and layered it on Basic Black cardstock. I attached it to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.
I can't wait for these products to become available for FREE in March! Check back here on March 3 for more details.
