StampinByHannah Go for Greece Blog Hop Beautiful Day Birthday Card
I’m back blog hopping today with the fabulous ladies from Go for Greece! I have been having so much fun (and learning a LOT!) from this wonderful bunch of women…. and being able to join them for another blog hop is so exciting!
I actually made this card during a really organised few days at the start of the month… before we had attending Stampin’ Up! OnStage, and learned about some of the upcoming changes to out inks and colour families. I have a full blog post about the changes, that you can find HERE! One of the changes though is that Night of Navy will move colour family from the Regals into the Neutrals. I LOVE this idea… as I use Night of Navy as a neutral so often, and it is one of my ‘go to’ card base colours too.
I have been playing with Vellum a lot recently, I just LOVE the soft effects you can create with it. This card has a layer of Vellum over the top of the stamped butterfly. The trick with using Vellum on cards is getting it to stick! Here I have used glue does behind that big fat bow, and a small piece of Tear & Tape behind the heat embossed sentiment. I’ve used Tear & Tape because its clear, and so when you use it on Whisper White card stock it disappears! Awesome!
Today’s card is finished with a pretty double bow of the retiring Night of Navy Crinkle Seam Binding Ribbon, I am so sad to see this go I’ve used it SO much! The other ribbon is the 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon which I was excited to see is in the new Annual Catalogue! I will be sharing more about what is coming, and how you can get a catalogue from me really soon, but in the meantime do hop along to the other ladies on this fabulous blog hop… I’m sure some of them might just have a couple of sneak peaks for you!
