Hello! Today it's Vellum!

 

 I made this card for the Around the World Stampin Challenge


It's fun to push yourself out of the box and try something unusual. 
Vellum is a little tricky to use because you need to hide your adhesive. Glue dots work great!



I die cut the feathers with a new set in the Holiday Catalog called Feathers Framelits dies.
It has stamps to match called Four Feathers but I just used embossing folders and the Bigshot to add texture


 I used the Hearts Border Punch, Handheld Stapler with Mini Staples.
The twine is Calypso Coral, which isn't a perfect match but close enough.

 Colors are Basic Gray and Melon Mambo with Vellum

Thanks for Stopping by!

Have a great day!

Nuts about You!

Hello again!

Today I made a cute card with the Nuts about You Hostess set

 



 I embossed the tree with VersaMark ink and Embossing Powder in Early Espresso



 I stamped the leaves in Gumball Green (retired), cut them out and popped some of them up with Dimentionals
It did take a few minutes but looks so cute


 I used 2 greens for the grass, Old Olive & Gumball Green

 Here I used the Ticket Duo Builder punch,
 for the green one i just cut the ends off and glued it on the whisper white.


 I had some tiny brads that look like a regular & a philips head screw and i cut the brad off.
Then I put them in a shaker frame.





Have a great day!

Congratulations! Baby Card

AW26 Product



 

 Here's my card
 I used Watercolor Paper, Lost Lagoon Ink pad smooshed onto the cover, and a paintbrush.
 I still don't have an Aqua Painter which may be easier. I sprayed the Watercolor paper first with water
in a Stampin' Spritzer then inked up my paintbrush and swiped it across the paper. Put more ink where you want it darker.


 I fussy cut the elephant & giraffe and popped them up with Dimensionals



 Banner Punch, Banner Blast Stamps which is from Sale-a-bration, 
The grass stamp is from the Hostess set Nuts About You
and the leaves are from Kinda Eclectic


 I notched the end of the banner with the Banner Punch
