Hi Stamping Friends!

So I've hemmed and I've hawed and I've finally decided that I must go against my own philosophy <gasp>!  Yes, I've decided to feature the Sale-a-Bration Sheer Perfection Vellum for April's Stamper Sampler class on April 22, even though it's no longer available to earn.

I try to make it a policy not to focus on products that my stamping friends are no longer able to buy or earn, but I truly did not get my fill from this awesome, basic gray printed vellum paper!  And, I'm still having too much fun with it not to share! 

Fortunately, I hoarded a bunch of Sheer Perfection Vellum packs during the promotion, so I'm able to offer a limited number of spots for this class!  I'm still working on the projects & class details, but I wanted to give you a sneak peek of one of the cards we'll be making! 


Sheer vellum - two cool

My favorite pattern from the Sheer Perfection Vellum pack is the butterfly pattern, and I know I'm not the only one who loves it!  I created a couple projects with that sheet, using markers to color the butterflies!  

Sheer vellum - olive sky 

CASEd from Claire Daly at Art With Heart.

Colored Butterfly Vellum—I started with a 5-1/2" x 2" strip of the butterfly vellum, turning it over and coloring it on the back side with several different Stampin' Write Markers on the back side.  If you have Blendabilities Markers, they work very well on this paper! 

This is the card we'll be creating at the Stamper Sampler class.

Sheer vellum - olive sky3 

I used Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Sky and Lost Lagoon markers to fill in the images.  It takes a little time for the ink to dry on the smooth surface.   You can use a heat tool on the low setting to speed up the process.

Background Basics—Once it was dry, I adhered it with SNAIL to a 5-1/2" x 2' piece of Whisper White card stock to make it pop.  It was then layered onto a 5-1/2" x 2-1/4" Soft Sky mat and adhered to the Old Olive card base.

Sheer vellum - olive sky2

Fluttering Focal Point—I cut a 2" x 3-3/4" piece of Whisper White card stock and rounded the bottom corners with the Corner Rounder Punch for the focal point banner. I stamped the Butterfly Basics phrase in Memento Tuxedo Black ink in the center.

Next, I stamped the Nature's Perfection (also no longer available) butterfly in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Lost Lagoon, and punched it out with the Elegant Butterfly Punch.  It's attached with two Glue Dots in the center, leaving the wings free to flutter, and topped with a Pearl Jewel.

Before mounting on the card front with Dimensionals, I tied some Painted Blooms Cotton Twine in the Soft Sky color into a bow around the focal point layer. 

Sheer vellum - strawberry skyl

Two Cool—For my second card, I started with a Soft Sky card base and layered my butterflies background onto a strip of Old Olive.

Sheer vellum - strawberry sky3

This time I used Lost Lagoon, Old Olive and Strawberry Slush markers to fill in the images.

Sheer vellum - strawberry sky2 

Finishing Touches—I used a different sentiment from Butterfly Basics this time.  It's finished with a Strawberry Slush butterfly embellishment and tied with some retired Lost Lagoon Silky Taffeta Ribbon.
