Stampin' Up: Graceful Glass Suite

Graceful glass suite

The Graceful Glass suite really caught my eye.  I just love the beautiful calligraphy style font of the greeting. It reminds me of when I was a teen and used to dabble in lettering with a fountain pen - making place cards for family events.   The greeting style is so different to anything else we've had in our range - I love it. 

The 6" x 6" vellum pack is great to work with.  Use it as is or add some colour with Stampin' Markers, Stampin' Blends or pencils.  Some designs are full sheets and some are great to snip into thin or wider panels or squares so you'll get a lot of projects from one pack.  We had fun at my casual team gathering on Friday morning having a play with them and trying the different colouring mediums to find our favourite.  Markers give a nice bold colour - I think that's my pick. 

Vellum 2 Vellum




There is a stamp set and thinlits pack too - get them in a bundle and save 10%.  The greetings in this are very versatile and suit some of my most frequently needed occasions for a card. 

Graceful glass bundle

The thinlits cut delicate pieces - our multipurpose glue is great for adhering them to your project.  Tip:  Leave it to dry just a little after application but before attaching to your project and you'll find less oozing out the edges. 

You can also use the new Big Shot embossing mats with the thinlits to get an embossed background instead of cutting the shape such as in the top right card here.  Get more value from your thinlits collection this way. 

Graceful glass projects

I hope your weekend is an enjoyable one and you've got some creative time in your month during June. 

Happy stamping!

Cheers, Sue
