Happy Monday stampers,

Today’s Make-It-Monday card highlights the Graceful Glass Suite in the new catalog.  The stamp set is gorgeous with its many greetings and some lovely images.  In addition to the stamp set the coordinating framelits makes creating beautiful designs easy-peasy.  One of my favorite items is the vellum Graceful Glass Designer Series Paper.  The vellum is pre-printed with gorgeous images that can be left as-is or colored in with either Stampin Markers, Stampin Blends, or Watercolor Pencils.  Here’s one of the many cards I’ve made with this beautiful suite:

It’s been cloudy and it was difficult to photograph this card, but Granny Apple Green is a bright and cheerful color.  I’m surprised that I keep reaching for this new color since green has been one of my least favorite colors, but I really like Granny Apple Green.  Let me jump into the tips & tricks section of my blog post so I can share some helpful info with you.


  • The in high demand Stampin Blends are back in stock and you can starting ordering them today, June 11.  Many new colors were added to the collection. Stampin Blends are alcohol based markers and are great for color blending.
  • I used the Stampin Blends to color on the back of the vellum for a softer effect, but I did add shading with the darker blends on the front side as well.  You can probably see it in some of the flowers.
  • I backed the stained glass panel and the butterfly with Whisper White cardstock.
  • If you use water based markers such as the Stampin Markers make sure that you cover the areas you finish coloring with a piece of scratch paper as you move to another section.  Water based markers take longer to dry so you might smear the colors if you don’t protect your piece.
