Nancy's Nifty Notes

Hand-Crafted Greeting Cards and Paper Gifts

Embossed Vellum Confetti Celebration

Again I woke up one day with the basics of this card in my head. I knew I wanted to emboss a center panel of Vellum card stock and frame it with DSP. It took some fiddling around to make me happy with this one, and I have a different version in mind to make someday as well.

I’m trying something new today, using Stamp Buddy to show you the products I used to make the card. Just click on the picture to go straight to my online store if you wish to order any of them. I do want to point out that the sentiment stamp comes from the Everyday Occasions Cardmaking Kit, which is why it’s listed. I look forward to your feedback on this!

Mojo Monday 359 Perfect Blend

This week I decided to continue my streak of playing along with blog challenges, and went with a long-time favorite, Mojo Monday sketch challenge blog.

IMG_0406

I resisted my first impulse to put a big collection of flowers colored with Blendabilities in the circle because I felt I was using them a lot recently, and challenged myself to use a still-current-but-not-used-recently stamp set. Perfect Blend to the rescue! I paper pieced the cups, first stamping the entire cup on a piece of DSP from the Lullaby set. Then I stamped the lids on Baked Brown Sugar card stock and the wrap on Crisp Cantaloupe card stock. I cut out the lids and glued them over the DSP lids. Before cutting the wraps I put them on my Scoring Tool and scored the lines so they’d resemble the corrugated wraps in the coffee shops. Then I cut them out and glued them over the DSP.

The DSP panels are also from the Lullaby set...it’s got great patterns and is not particularly babyish, so don’t let the name fool you into not buying this paper! I tried the panels by themselves, but decided they needed a small Baked Brown Sugar frame. The circle is cut from Hello Honey with a circle Framelit, and then I used the next size smaller Framelit as a template for my faux stitching around the edge. All of these are adhered flat to the Crisp Cantaloupe panel, then wrapped with the Thick Baker’s Twine in Crisp Cantaloupe and Baked Brown Sugar with a bow tied in it. The ends are taped to the back of the panel, and then it’s adhered to the Baked Brown Sugar base with Dimensionals. The cups are adhered with Glue Dots for just a touch of dimension.

I almost left off the flagged strip that was in the original sketch because I didn’t think the card needed it. But I do like to be true to the sketch, so I searched through my sentiment sets and thought this one from Age Awareness was fitting. It’s attached with itty-bitty pieces of Dimensionals that run along the top and bottom edges, on either side of the Thick Baker’s Twine.

Here’s the original sketch -- how’d I do?
