Shopping Our Stash #390 - Fabulous February


Greetings & salutations crafty friends!!

Thanks for stopping by to check out the latest challenge from the SHOPPING OUR STASH crew!

This week MIMI is our host and our theme is Fabulous February.

That means we want to see something inspired by February (amethyst, violet or iris) on your project.

February is my birth month, purple is my favourite colour and amethyst is my favourite gem, so I used those for my card.

For my image, I was inspired by a birthday card I received this year from my crafty friend Betty, the image was coloured on vellum and looked like stained glass, so I wanted to give that a go.

I heat embossed the image on one side of the vellum, then coloured on the back of the vellum with distress markers then layered it on a piece of green design paper to pop it off the purple design paper.

I made the sentiment with my label maker and cut some gems from the same pack of design paper.

I really love how the colours pop on the vellum!


Shite I used to make this card:

  • White cardstock (Fireworx)
  • Vellum (Recollections)
  • Label maker (p-touch)
  • Versa mark ink
  • Black embossing powder (Recollections)
  • Stay Magical design paper (Craft Smith)
  • Winged Things stamp (Tim Holtz)
  • Twisted Citron, Picked Raspberry, Spun Sugar, Mermaid Lagoon distress markers (Tim Holtz)
  • Tuxedo Black ink (Memento)
As always, we would love for you to join our crew and play along!
