Make It Monday #210: Using Vellum to Soften Patterns

I needed to get going on my Mother's Day card so I sat down to play with some Palette ink and a daisy stamp set called Hello Sunshine from Hero Arts.  After I got going, I thought it would look much better if I added some vellum as to soften it a bit and this Make It Monday Mother's Day card
was born. My MISTI assisted me of course! Here she is:
Lizzie has some great tips and I think I need to get some 3m
 vellum tape since you can spot the adhesive !
Overall, I was quite happy with the outcome.

Supplies: PTI: Tucked In: Mother, Royal Velvet CS
Palette Hybrid Ink: Belle Rose, L'Amore Red, Claret, Bordeaux, & Lavender Sachet.
Hero Arts: Hello Sunshine, clear embossing Powder
Avery Elle Pigment ink in Sugar Plum
Vellum and Simon Says Stamp:Stitched Rectangles

Have a Fabulous Day and Thanks for stopping!!

Make It Monday # 207 Double Partial Die Cutting

Thanks for joining me today as I discover how we can stretch our dies even more, thanks to
Laura and this weeks Make It Monday.  Why not check it out and join in on the fun!

I ended up using one of the Phrase Play Dies(the one with Enjoy, # 4 I think),
Tipped Tops Happy Die and then on the bottom section I used the Slide Frame 
Die so I'd have a window of sorts. I also used Petite Pots and Dies and Birthday 
Classics: April, for the "Easter" stamp.  Lemon Tart, Hawaiian Shores and White CS.
Hawaiian Shores, Lavender Moon, New Leaf and a variety of distress Inks for my BG.

Any questions? Please ask away and I love to read your comments!
