Love in the Clouds

  Have you seen how cute this Sent with Love stamp set and matching DSP is??  Well if you haven't you should check it out, it's only available until April 30 and it's perfect for travel themed projects or for sending your love long distance.

  This was one of the cards we made at my stamp club at the end of March.  I wanted to show off the Sent with Love bundle (Stamp set, DSP and matching Calypso Coral baker's twine) and teach my ladies how fun it is to emboss vellum.

  The base is Island Indigo.  How cool is it that Island Indigo will be sticking around as regular color?  We used the Cloudy Days embossing folder to emboss the sheet of vellum.  If your Big Shot tends to be tight you might want to open up your platform and use no tabs to make sure that the vellum doesn't tear.  Also, you can see adhesive through the vellum so make sure your card layout will account for hiding the adhesive behind another layer.  On this card we attached our strip of DSP to the front of the vellum and then used it to hide a strip of adhesive on the backside to attach the vellum to the card base.

  To make the cute little airplane tag we used the single stamp Basic Label (Item #132669).  Stampin' Up! also just announced that the current offerings of single stamps will stay available until July 31!  So if you forgot to add some of them to your last order you're still in luck!  We stamped the Basic Label with Island Indigo and then cut it out with the matching Label Framelit.

  Next, the airplane and contrail stamp from Sent with Love was inked up with markers and lined up inside of the label.  A punched heart in Red Glimmer paper was added to the contrail heart….not a perfect match but close enough!

  Next we added a ribbon tie on one side using the now retired Sycamore Street Sale-a-bration ribbon.  To balance the other side a small scalloped circle was punched out of Pool Party Core'dinations cardstock.  Pool Party is another color that is being added to the regular collection!  Woo-Hoo!  The whole tag piece is popped up on dimensionals.

  Don't wait to get this cute set, it will be gone before you know it.  It is also available for MDS for those digital scrapbookers out there.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
