Vellum Valentine

I just love the new stamp set, Hey, Valentine from the Occasions Catalogue. When I heard that this week's challenge at The Paper Plunge was to use vellum, I knew right away I would be using this set.

This is a simple open top box made with an 8 1/4 by 4 1/4 piece of card stock vellum. It's scored at 2 1/2 horizontally, and 2, 4, 6, and 8 vertically. It's stamped with the adorable fox image, heat embossed in black, and coloured with Blendabilities

Here's a photo without the lamp on so you can see how the tea light (battery powered) shines through the image a bit better. 

Don't you love it!?!  Pull out some vellum and make one for your #1 Valentine. Then head over to The Paper Plunge for some more great vellum ideas. 

Go stamp something!


  1. What a sweet luminary Diane. It's so cute. Love it.

  2. Wow that is awesome!!! I love how you colored the little fox! So cute! Now u can go make 20 something of them for your kiddos!!! lol wink wink!!! hugs!!!

  3. As far as fm2+ is concerned, get use to it because it's going to be around for quite some time.What it brings is additional levels of power control for reduced power consumption a desirable feature to most pc users. The clockspeed per se does not determine the graphics performance entirely and amd's apus are so far ahead of intel that no one with a clue would ever consider an intel apu unless they are braindead. The fact that some reviewers do not even understand how revolutionary amds kaveri apus are shows their technical ignorance.Amd's huma so drastically improves the pc landscape that every major pc industry player now supports it and intel will be forced to copy it.This technology seems to be too complicated for some folks to understand.Kaveri is just the intro to the many advantages of huma. "Well, the real problem occurred when we tried to overclock the processor because its clock rate would drop to the default 3700 mhz or even lower, to 3500 mhz, at high loads even at the default settings.That's a well known problem, actually.Amd apus aren't very fast, so the manufacturer sets too high default clock rates for them to make up for the poor performance.The processor can't work at that clock rate if the load is high.In other words, amd's processors are heavily overclocked even in their specified operating mode.

    There's no point in overclocking if the processor can't keep its clock rate stable.Whatever clock rate you set, it is just going to be dropped at high loads. "Both of these mobos fail, imo.It doesn't matter what the reviewer thinks, pc enthusiasts are going to want to overclock fm2+ mobos to get the most bang for the buck.Apus can definitely benefit from overclocking.These two mobos are half baked crap rushed to marked, very typical of asus.
