What a perfect start to the day…..some time with my grandchildren!

My son Carl stopped by this morning with the grandchildren.  My daughter in law is flying out to Orlando for a conference on adoption where she will meet a friend and get in some much needed “girl time”.  It’s always a treat to spend time with them and the puppies LOVE it.  They always get extra hugs, kisses and treats!

I have been working on my vellum techniques class for next month.  I showed this card to Kathy B. when she came by last night and she liked it so I thought I would share it with you all.  I did add a bow to help balance it out since last night.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe stamp set I used is So Very Grateful as seen in the Occasions catalog.  This technique is called stained glass.  You stamp the image with black StazOn and then color in the images on the back side with our markers.  I cut the window with our deco labels framelits.

To cut out the marina mist frame all you have to do is nest the smaller framelit inside the larger one and run it through the Big Shot.  To make it even easier use our magnetic platform, which will hold the framelits firmly in place.   I generally use what I call our “green glue” to adhere narrow layers such a the frame above onto my card front, especially if it’s going onto an embossed layer.

The white layer was cut out with the deco label framelit and then run through the Big Shot using the fancy fan embossing folder.  I cut it out first and then embossed it.  I used the cut out portion behind the floral image to make it pop and I didn’t want any texture there.

Hope that all makes sense to you.  I could read it back to myself 10 times and keep changing it.  Let me know if you have additional questions and if it makes sense to you!

Happy Stamping!
