Simple Stems

SimpleStemsI needed to come up with a demo card for a workshop I have tomorrow night and decided it would be fun to show all the gold ‘stuff’ that is in the mini.  I wanted to use the great new vellum and the gold Washi Tape (I have been on a bit of a Washi Tape kick lately).  As I was looking for some inspiration for my card, I happened upon The Paper Players challenge for this week and although I didn’t follow it exactly, I really did base it on it.

Here’s the details –

  • Whisper White – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Gold Foil Vellum – 5 x 3 3/4, add to card front
  • Whisper White – 4 1/2 x 3 1/4, add the three different gold Washi Tapes.
  • Stamp the greeting using StazOn Jet Black right on the solid Gold Washi Tape.  Add panel to card front using dimensionals
  • Stamp flower and stem using versamark, gold emboss, cut out and add using dimensionals.

Pretty easy card really…but uses LOTS of fun stuff!

Set(s): Simple Stems, A Dozen Thoughts
Paper: Whisper White, Gold Fancy Foil Designer Vellum
Ink: StazOn Jet Black, Versamark
Other: Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape, Gold Embossing Powder, Dimensionals

Until next time…HAPPY STAMPIN’!

  3. Mary, you just convinced me to buy every single product you used on this beauty! Wow! Very, VERY pretty! Thank you so much for joining us this week at the Paper Players! 🙂

  4. Beautiful card! But, just wondering which stamp set the sentiment is from? It isn’t part of the Delightful Dozen set, as you’ve indicated above. Thanks.

  5. Received your email reply; thank you. I see you’ve updated the post 🙂
