Today’s sympathy card is highlighted by beautiful new products in the Stampin’ Up! Graceful Glass suite (pp. 164-165 of the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog). The Graceful Glass 6 x 6 Designer Vellum has a black embossed pattern on one side and is gorgeous colored with Stampin’ Blends Markers on the opposite side.
Stampin’ Blends Marker Update. ALL previously released Stampin’ Blends Marker colors are back in stock (except Pink Pirouette, which retired). The eleven NEW colors featured in the annual catalog are projected to be available in mid-June! Here’s my helpful video demonstrating the ease and coloring possibilities of Stampin’ Blends Markers.
STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:
Create a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base using the Stampin’ Trimmer and Thick Whisper White card stock.
Adhere a 3 7/8 x 5 1/8 vellum pattern (Graceful Glass 6 x 6 Designer Vellum) with Multipurpose Liquid Glue to a 3 7/8 x 5 1/8 piece of Whisper White card stock. Wrap with Old Olive 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon and tie in a bow. Adhere layer to card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Color the rose pattern (Graceful Glass 6 x 6 Designer Vellum) on the back (non-embossed) side with the Light Cherry Cobbler (roses) and Light Old Olive (leaves) Stampin’ Blends Markers. Cut to 1 1/4 x 4 1/4 and adhere using Multipurpose Liquid Glue to a 1 1/2 x 4 1/2 piece of Whisper White card stock. TIP: I concentrated the glue at the center of the roses to make the glue virtually invisible.
Adhere rose panel to card base as shown using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Using the Stamparatus stamp positioning tool for crisp results and Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, stamp the sentiment from the Painted Glass stamp set on Whisper White card stock. Crop using a Big Shot, Magnetic Platform and the 4th smallest circle die from the Layering Circles Framelits Dies.
Crop scalloped circles with the Layering Circles Framelits Dies in Old Olive and Lovely Lipstick. Adhere together with Snail Adhesive. Add the sentiment circle from above with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the top of the scalloped circle layer and adhere the entire piece to the card base (Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the right to keep things even).

My card was inspired by this simple and pretty version created by Ruth Petsel (a CASE of Linda Schnabel).
