Vellum and Posies

Dear Ones~
Just got back from a walk. It's GORGEOUS here today!!! Actually going to be stellar all week!!

Today's offering was made for this week's Make It Monday Challenge over at Papertrey Ink. We are to use vellum to soften patterned paper. I love vellum, so I was delighted to have a reason to use it.

Here's my card:
I used the Papertrey Ink Rosie Posie stamp set here to make my own patterned paper. It's a 2-step set, but I only used the base stamp. I thought it would be fun to just stamp the images in lots of different bright colors. I'm really pleased with the way it turned out. After applying the vellum over the top of the whole thing I used Enamel Accents to randomly place little white dots. Then I die cut the "hello" several times and stacked the cuts together for dimension. I think it's a pretty cute card.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Blue Raspberry, Sweet Mango and White Card Stock.
PTI Rosie Posie Stamp Set
MFT Die-namics Hello Die
GKD Inks in:
*Sweet Mango
*Red Hot
*Blue Raspberry
*Grass Green
*Sweet Corn
Ranger Enamel Accents

This will also be entered in:
Simon Says Monday - anything goes.
Simon Says Wednesday - anything goes.

That's it for me today. I gotta go back outside. Hope your day is lovely. Oh, and I adore your comments!!


  1. It is a pretty and cute card! LOVE the colors of your home made background paper, fabulous! And the layer of Vellum just softens it all and makes it look even more beautiful! I also really like how you added the white dots on top of it, so clever! The dimension on your 'hello' looks great, I find it so fun to make your own chipboard accents. Well done!

  2. Sure is absolutely gorgeous my dear! Love that you made your own background paper with those beautiful roses how fabulous! The vellum definitely softens the look! Have a Blessed day!

  3. I love the way it turned out, Judy, and I really like the little dots you added, too. I bet it's even prettier in person when the vellum is more visible! Thanks for sharing it with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!
