Lots of Lavender

Hello and welcome to a new week with a new theme, well, sort of J! In case you missed it, the countdown to the end of Sale-A-Bration is near and the last day to qualify for $50.00 or $100.00 rewards is March 31st. This week I will be showcasing the stamps that you can earn, so don’t delay and get your order in today!

Today I will be featuring the Lots of Lavender stamp set, which I used to make this stained-glass technique card, along with some heat embossing, die and fussy cutting.

The card base is Basic Gray, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”. The first base layer is Wisteria Wonder, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and the second base layer is from the Wood Textures DSP Stack, cut at 3 ¾” x 5”.

First, stamp the bouquet stamp on a piece of Vellum cardstock and then set aside to dry. Next, I stamped the Wisteria Wonder cardstock with the Post Script background stamp in Wisteria Wonder ink. For the Wood Textures DSP, the Post Script background stamp is used again with Versamark ink and then heat embossed in Silver Embossing Powder (don’t forget your Embossing Buddy!)

The stamped Vellum cardstock should be dry (you can use the heat tool to finish drying, be careful or it will burn!), flip it over and color from the back using Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant Stampin’ Write Markers for the ribbon and the flowers and then use Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers for the leaves.

For the Big Shot work, you will use the largest Lots of Labels Framelits to cut out the flower from the Vellum cardstock and a piece of Whisper White cardstock. The frame is created from layering the largest and the 2nd largest Lots of Labels Framelits on a piece of Wisteria Wonder cardstock. Use a Fine Tip Glue Pen to adhere the Vellum Cardstock to the Wisteria Wonder frame, then on the back, place Foam Adhesive Strips down the sides and a Mini Dimensional at the top and bottom, line up with the Whisper White cardstock and then adhere all together.

To put the card together, adhere both base layers to the card base, place some adhesive in the middle of the embossed layer and place the Lots of Labels piece on top.

The butterfly is from the Blossoming Basket stamp set, stamped on a piece of Whisper White cardstock in Memento ink three times, colored in with Smokey Slate and Wisteria Wonder Stampin’ Write Markers, and some Wink of Stella. These are then cut out, two are adhered with Mini Dimensionals and one with a Mini Glue Dot. The edges are then sponged with some Basic Gray ink.

Demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia and was first introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2004 when I attended my very first card class with my Mother-in-Law and I was immediately hooked! I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and figured I could just do it for a hobby, but now I am going to branch out for all to world to see. So grab your favorite beverage, sit in your favorite chair, and join me as I share my cards and crafts with you! Enjoy!
