Sheer Perfection Correction

I just realized that there is a mistake in my post from yesterday. In my description of how I created my Butterfly card, I stated that I layered the Sheer Perfection Vellum over the First Edition Specialty Designer Series Paper. I should have said that I used the Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper. First Edition was from a previous catalog. Sorry for the confusion.

Tip ~If you don't have the Typeset Paper, you could also use the Dictionary Background Stamp to create the word background.

Again, sorry for any confusion.
Happy Stamping ~

Sheer Perfection!

I know ~ it's been a while! I posted this card on a sharing site, and got such a great response, I thought I would share the details here. Thank you everyone for all your kind words, it really means a lot to me!

This card was created using the Sheer Perfection Designer Vellum Stack. This 6x6 Paper Stack is one of the new items added to the list of things you can choose for Free during Sale-a-Bration! With every $50 spent (before shipping & tax) you can choose one exclusive Sale-a-Bration item Free!

This is a great little stack. There are 2 sheets each of 12 different designs ~ 24 sheets ~ Free! Here are 4 of the designs. There are also tiny polka dots, 3 floral patterns and dashes & diagonals. So fun!

It's so easy to add color to this vellum. I used my Stampin' Write Markers, and colored on the back side with Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, and Crushed Curry. It worked great! I also used my Blender Pen to do some shading. I layered the vellum over the First Edition Specialty Designer Series Paper and stapled the two together using the new Handheld Stapler found in the Occasions Catalog. Vellum can be a little tricky to adhere because you can see the adhesive. This little stapler came in quite handy! That is then layered on the Crumb Cake card base. I used my Fast Fuse adhesive to add a strip of 1-1/4" Burlap Ribbon, and Mini Glue Dots to add a strip of Coastal Cabana Ribbon and coordinating Button. The Best Year Ever Accessory Pack includes 3 colors of ribbon and 24 buttons, and is another item you can choose for Free during Sale-a-Bration!

There are only 11 more days of Sale-a-Bration! Be sure to check your Wish Lists and place your orders to earn your Free products before it's over on March 31st!
