Hello everyone 😊
Welcome to the 2018 Stampin' Sunday Blog Hop.

I have a full list of our hop participants closer to the end of this post.

Here are my cards.

For my card projects today I have chosen to use the Heartfelt Blooms stamp that you can earn FREE during SALE-A-BRATION *more info further down.

I chose a monochrome colour scheme of black, grey,white with silver to finish for my first card.

Here is a close up of the layers.

I used a few little bits'n'bobs from previous makes to finish this card. 
The vellum heart frame, the sequin trim and the black leaves are all from previous cards.
I have overlaid a sheet of vellum over the DSP in the background. This was done to soften the look of the black polka dots.

For this card I decided that a splash of colour was needed. I chose to colour one flower image in Melon Mambo and Pumpkin Pie.
I also went with a mixed metals approach adding metallic sequins to the card front and metallic gold thread behind the focal layers.
This card was created using bits'n'bobs that I had been playing with trying some of my new product out and getting a feel for them.
The vellum overlay on this card has only been stuck firmly down in the centre behind the floral image. This was done to give a loser feel to the overall structure of the card.

*Kim's tip

Have you ever wondered how to apply your vellum so it stays flat and have the glued area barely noticed?
Then I have your solution!
Apply Fast Fuse along the edges of the vellum.
NOTE: When applying always make sure that you have no balled up bits of the glue and that it doesn't double on itself - Those two things will make it visible.

I hope you liked my card projects today.

  1. You have used this set beautifully for your cards Kim! I love your monochrome card with all of your "leftover" bit.

  2. Wow Kim ... these cards are amazing! Love that Stitched Rectangle ... very clever!!! The whole black/white/vellum/metallic is a fabulous colour scheme that I wouldn't have thought of using with this set! Fabulous! xxx

  3. Your cards are great, I think the mongrome one is my favorite.
