Hello stampers and happy Friday to you. Some people think vanilla is boring but today I am going to share with you Very Classy Very Vanilla. I have made a very elegant monochromatic card combining the Festive Florets dies and the Merriest Moments Hybrid Embossing folder. Add in some gold embossing and the result is rather stunning if I do say so myself!
Very Classy Very Vanilla
Did you know that the oval dies in the Festive Florets collection layer together beautifully? The insides of the detailed ovals cut out for plain ovals on which to stamp your greeting and the detailed ovals can be layered as well with a stunning effect. I was inspired by Gail Ellis to layer these oval over the Merriest Moments Hybrid embossing folder. It’s a little counter intuitive since that folder has a rectangular opening in the middle but it works perfectly as you will see for yourself.
Tone on Tone Poinsettias
For this Very Classy Very Vanilla card I kept the poinsettias monochromatic as well. I stamped the poinsettias in Versamark on very vanilla cardstock and embossed with white embossing powder. A few pearls were added to the centre of the flower for a lovely effect.
Prime Time With the Pampered Stamper
When COVID started I began Prime Time as a way to keep my business afloat. Members pay ten dollars a month in three month increments and in exchange they get a weekly exclusive video tutorial and a monthly 16 project pdf tutorial. The videos are posted each Thursday and the supply list and measurements are posted on Wednesdays. Members tell me that this is like a weekly class and because they pay a small monthly fee, they take it seriously and it keeps them stamping and using their supplies. It makes me so happy to hear that! You are also most welcome to join! You can do it here. This was the card that we made this week.
Thanks for joining me today, it’s always nice to see how many people come and read my blog posts each day. Did you know that I also have a YouTube channel? Every Tuesday and Wednesday I post videos there at 10am EST. Teaching the joy of card making is what I love to do and I hope you join me and subscribe!
