Elegant Fan Elements Clear Stamps

Today I get to show you three different projects that I made with the Elegant Fan Elements Clear Stamps.

This first one is more of a Victorian fan. I liked mixing the classic and the fresher colors. I wish I had taken photos along the way as I was creating the card.

I stamped the fan stamp on teal paper and embossed with white embossing powder. Afterwards I die cut five out using the JustRite Vintage Fan Dies. I also die cut five of the tab elements and one Vintage Flourish One Die. Everything was easy to layer and glue down. I tucked portions of a paper doily behind each fan blade and added jewels. The flower, bow, and feathers were added to give it that Victorian feel. I needed a medium shade of teal for the left side. Since I didn't have one I stamped the Burlap Background Cling stamp on the teal paper. It gave it just enough color to anchor the fan.

This is the Elegant Fan Elements Clear Stamps set. This clear set has 13 stamps. The fan shape fits in the Vintage Fan Die. Plus it has 2 SVG Digital Download files available for it.

This fan was the first one that I made. It is very bright! I followed the same steps that I did for the teal set.

Here is my third card using the Elegant Fan Elements and the SVG Digital Download files. I think this one is my favorite. I like the smaller square card size. As I was stamping and die cutting this set I thought it would be nice to have an SVG for the other two large elements in the stamp set. Next came an SVG Envelope and notecard! This card was so easy to put together. 

To warm the pink card stock I stamped it with the Burlap Background Cling stamp. (That might be one of my all time favorite stamps!) After I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the envelope I stamped and embossed the flaps. I cut an extra "flap" to use as a header on the card. I layered the offset cut for the border to create the edge of the card. I dabbed ink on the pink SVG cut borders to give them a deeper pink tone.

These two images show the two different SVG Digital Download sets you can get.

The SVG Elegant Fan Elements has both exact and offset cuts for the stamps. They are so easy to use.

I have one more project to share with you. My sweet niece, Bekah, had surgery this spring on her hips. I was able to spend a week with my sister and her family. It was so nice to be able to spend time with them. I will have to share their incredible journey with you soon. One of my favorite things to do with Bekah's sister, Kayla, is craft. Kayla has a keen eye for design. I can't wait to see how God will use my talented niece. 

I took a huge box of stamps to test. I knew Kayla would be the perfect helper. Here is a project that Kayla made along with our selfie. I love it that the stamps are made with such quality. I knew that the stamps would hold up to lots of stamping.

Hope you enjoyed the projects today. Here is the list for the rest of the hop. Make sure you visit each one. The Design Team made amazing projects!
Happy Stamping!
Grace & Peace,
