Tonight is the night we’ve all been waiting for!  The BIG reveal will happen at midnight EST at Papertrey’s website.  I have to say that this particular new release is one of my personal favorites thus far.  I have wanted reverse images like this for years and it is so exciting to have been able to bring my vision to a reality.  This set has been such a joy to play with, and I know there are just so many other inventive, creative uses that YOU will come up with once you receive your own.

This unique project I created uses a technique I like to call "Double Vision Vellum Window".

061407_one
1. Stamp reverse dandelion image onto vellum.  (A darker, richer ink would be best.)

2. Flip vellum over, with reverse dandelion image side down.  (You will still be able to see the reverse image, just a more muted version.)  Stamp non-reverse dandelion at the edge of the reverse image.  The result is that extra dandelion appears to be a shade darker, when in reality it is just on the opposite side of the vellum.

3. Draw a stem extending from the dandelion with pencil.  Pierce holes the length of the stem.  Use an anywhere hole punch to add holes to the centers of all three flowers.

I added a few finishing touches…
-pierced the stems for the other two flowers as well.
-cut a few leaves from green cardstock to help unify all three flowers.
-cut a window in the front of my orange card and adhered the floral vellum accent to the back.
-trimmed a white frame slightly smaller than the window in the orange card base to adhere to the inside of the cover, covering up the adhesive of the vellum AND adding a nice detail visible from the front.
-the thanks sentiment was matted with green cardstock and trimmed with scalloped scissors.

Just wait until you see all of the BEAUTIFUL projects the design team has come up with for this set.  You will just be oozing with creativity after perusing all the new gallery pages!  And don’t forget, we will also be announcing the latest Guest Star Stamper!  I look forward to seeing you all tonight!

    Wow.

    You know, I have *never* been a fan of reverse images. I have just never seen a card with reverse images that I really liked. You have TOTALLY changed this! The techniques you have shown these past couple of days are BEAUTIFUL. I am now re-thinking all the reverse image stamps that I always just glanced over. I think one of the main diffences is that you include a solid image of the reverse. I think that this is genius and I can’t figure out why no one else has thought of this! I bet that it makes putting a coherent card together SO much easier! Thank you so much for making beautiful images and for sharing such wonderful techniques!
