Stampin Up Venetian Romance DSP – MOJO310

Stampin Up Venetian Romance DSPMy special friend, Melody, from N.VA has left to return home, and I feel sad.  However, I am very pleased that we had a fantastic visit, and I hope to see her again soon.  Because I feel sad about her leaving, I chose to create a card that would provide comfort to anyone who has such feelings when a loved one visits and leaves.  Therefore, I am featuring the Stampin Up Venetian Romance DSP and Verve Stamps on my card share today.  The Verve Stamps “Let It Be” Stamp Set has the perfect sentiment stamp for the card:  “Every Little Thing is Going to be All Right“.  This picture provides a close up of the sentiment. Venetian Romance DSP

I think that the design I used from the Stampin Up Venetian Romance DSP is one of the prettiest designs from the DSP.  Its colors are Island Indigo and Pistachio Pudding.  I used the Stampin’ Up! Pistachio Pudding Card Stock for the card base and the Island Indigo Card Stock for a couple of highlighting elements.

I used this past Monday’s MOJO Monday MOJO310 sketch for the design of my card.  The MOJO310 sketch follows.

It is great to have a sketch to follow when creating a card.  Julee Tilman’s sketches are always beautiful.  She is one of the designers for MOJO Monday.

Venetian Romance Designer Series Paper; Fabulous Phrases

My friends, I have a card for you today that spotlights the Stampin’ Up! Venetian Romance Designer Series Paper.  But first I want to apologize for not posting over the last several days.  My brother became quite ill and I had to leave town unexpectedly.  Thus I was unprepared regarding posting projects.

Back to the card.  Notice the arrow in the following picture?  That is the design I used from the Venetian Romance Designer Series Paper for a portion of the card.  This design is not an exact match to the Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder, but it comes close enough that I used the embossing folder with the paper.

 Here is the Venetian Romance Designer Series Paper card: Venetian Romance Designer Series Paper

To make this card, I cut a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of the above-mentioned design from the Venetian Romance Designer Series Paper.  Using the Stampin’ Up! Trimmer (see note below), I cut the piece into two triangles.

I cut a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock, placed it into the Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder, and ran it through the Big Shot.  I covered a brayer with Tangerine Tango Classic Ink and ran it across the debossed side of the card stock.  I cut the piece into two triangles.

I placed one triangle from both pieces onto the Venetian Romance Designer Series PaperTangerine Tango Card Stock card base after inserting three brads on each piece (see above picture).  I used a small piece of the Soft Suede design from the Venetian Romance Designer Series Paper, matted it with Baked Brown Sugar Card Stock, and attached it over the two triangles.

For the sentiment, I stamped “heartfelt gratitude” in Tangerine Tango Classic Ink onto a Very Vanilla circle.  The circle is matted with a Spellbinders die called, Splendid Circles.  

I embossed a small piece of Tangerine Tango card stock with the  Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder and cut out an Artisan Label with the Stampin’ Up! Artisan Label Punch. The label was attached to the bottom of the circle.  To the side of the label, I added two flowers made with the Boho Blossoms Punch.

Stampin' Trimmer NOTE:  If you have not purchased the Stampin’ Up! Trimmer, I encourage you to do so.  I have used lots of trimmers, and I initially decided I would just keep and use my Fiskars instead of purchasing the Trimmer.  However, I placed an order for Stampin’ Up! products and decided to get the Trimmer free with hostess dollars.  I cannot express how very happy I am with the Trimmer.  The cutting space is larger than usual and it cuts perfectly.  The meansurements are exact, unlike some trimmers I’ve used.  So, don’t hestitate to get it.  I promise you will be happy you did.

God’s Blessings!
