Healing Hugs Rose Cards - new Stampin' Up! set

 I am super in love with the beautiful rose stamp in the Healing Hugs stamp set from Stampin' Up!   Of course you know I love roses, and you know I love COLOR... so I had to combine those and create some super colorful cards for today's post!!

 

Stampin' Up! Healing Hugs rose stamp set - gorgeous stamped in Grapefruit Grove, Poppy Parade and Granny Apple Green!  Cards by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

 If you haven't discovered the Healing Hugs stamp set yet, it's in your new 2018-2019 Stampin' Up! annual catalog, on pg 11o, and you can also see a couple more samples on pg 104/105.  This is one of the new "Distinktive" designs (read more on pg 110) and I just stamped each rose in a separate color as shown here, but, I'm going to try the layering color technique with sponge daubers, next!!

My bright, fun, zippy color combo for these cards: Granny Apple Green, Grapefruit Grove & Poppy Parade!

Detailed Trio Corner Punch paired with the Stampin' Up! Healing Hugs rose stamp set - gorgeous stamped in Grapefruit Grove, Poppy Parade and Granny Apple Green!  Cards by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

My little secret weapon for this card is the darling corner detail.  I used the new Detailed Trio Corner punch on the upper left corner of each of the 4x4 Whisper White cardstock pieces.  I punched with the corner rounder and the little detailed image to create this look. You'll find this punch on pg 211 in the catalog, #146320

Above: I created this card with both Poppy Parade Cardstock and with Grapefruit Grove cardstock.. I love them both!

The sentiment on this card was created with 2 stamps from the Botanical Bliss stamp set, mounted on the same block.

Graceful Glass Vellum coloring tutorial / video

 Today we are going to chat about coloring tips and other great tips for creating handmade cards featuring the Stampin' UP! Graceful Glass vellum, and Stampin' Blends markers!  The vellum has all the designs already printed on the sheets, and I've colored them with the Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. (watch the video below in this post for more info).

The card below also featured the Garden Trellis embossing folder background on Gorgeous Grape cardstock!

Please enjoy this VIDEO TUTORIAL with lots of vellum tips!

 

If you are unable to view the video, please click HERE to view it on my YouTube Channel

 

 As I mentioned in the video above.. did you see the amazing difference between placing a colored piece of cardstock or a white piece of cardstock behind the colored vellum!?  Wow!!

I know I've mentioned this before, but it's worth repeating... to adhere your vellum to the cardstock without any glue lines or spots showing, simply dab some Multipurpose glue with a Stampin' Sponge onto the cardstock piece, then lay the vellum down... press, and voila... perfect seal and no "glue lines" :)

Multipurpose glue tip for adhering vellum to cardstock without any glue lines showing!!!

 

There are 12 different patterns preprinted on the Graceful Glass vellum. I am showcasing one of them today!

Below: check out the very different looks you can achieve with the Graceful Glass vellum, depending on your color choices with the Stampin' Blends markers and also the color of cardstock you place behind the vellum!!
