One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop header

It’s time for the July OSAT Blog Hop. This month’s theme is Creature Comforts. and we’re featuring animal themed projects. For my projects today, I used the Kindness & Compassion stamp set with the Graceful Glass Designer Vellum to create a thank you card and a box for the bird lover in your life.

There is an accidental technique used on these projects. I colored the vellum on the back with Stampin’ Write Markers and let them dry. Then I used a sponge to spread glue all over the back, and the ink smeared and created a marbled effect. I liked it so much that I repeated it on the second one.

Here’s what I made:
