This is my place to share with family and friends. You might find handmade cards, digital scrapbook pages, photos or a little chatter because those are the things I love. My blog is a work in progress, so be patient with me. Most of the time I think I will be talking to myself, but hey, I'm used to that!

Mellow Moss and Handsome Hunter .........

Two more Stampin' Up! colors that will be retiring in July. I am not sure how I will get along without Handsome Hunter. This one has been my "go to" Christmas tree color and I have used it a lot. We made this card at this month's Grace Stampers club and everyone thinks this is a winner for a nice masculine card. I would classify this one as very simple to make. Make sure to allow enough time for the craft ink to dry on the vellum. You can use the heat gun to speed the process along but be careful not to curl or scorch the vellum. Thanks for visiting!



Supplies:
Paper: Mellow Moss, Handsome Hunter, and Whisper White card stock, Vellum paper,
Ink: Stampin' Up! White Craft and Handsome Hunter Classic.
Stamps: Background from SU's "Sprinkles" set, sentiment from SU's "Kind and Caring Thoughts" and the leaf is from an old Club Scrap unmounted set.

Love this card! Great colors! Vellum is so tricky for me to use, but now you have inspired me!

Hi Cathy,

Ahhh! I never considered stamping my own pattern on to vellum. I love that idea. Stampin' Up! has got some terrific products. I have been very impressed with many of the demonstrations I have seen so far.

Sending sparkly fairy magic to you and your muse for a creatively perfect day.

Cheers! =D

Beautiful. Love the stamped vellum-it looks so cool. I am going to miss Mellow Moss. It's always been so popular.

I know what you mean! That craft ink never seems to dry quick enough and I end up smudging it! Love the card...in mourning still for some the retirement colors!

Very, very nice. The vellum really makes this card, and to think I never use it.
