  1. This is simply sweet as can be, Darlene!

    It’s been a pleasure visiting your blog today. I’m new here! Have a great week. 🙂

  2. Dale Rose says:

    Love this card–it is simple and elegant at the same time. Thanks for sharing your creativity.

  3. Diana W. says:

    Darlene – sweet, sweet card. And I had no idea there was such a thing as Vellum bond. Thanks for showing how that works. I need to get some. You never cease to amaze me.

  4. Robin in WA says:

    Beautiful card!! Thanks for sharing. I like how you cut away the vellum from the top of the star, therefore not getting overwhelmed with all the tiny stars. Very ingenious!

  5. Celeste Goff says:

    What a fun card Darlene! I have yet to try heat embossing on vellum yet but will keep that brand in mind for future use.

  6. Maria Rodriguez says:

    Oh Darlene, I just came home from running some errands and all I wanted to do was to see if you had posted your video. I love this card, it’s simple but beautiful, the starry stamp is a must have, it was out of stock but now, it’s back so I’m getting it. I didn’t know there was a special glue for Vellum, I always have the hardest time using just regular white glue and the glue dots are always visible from the front. Thanks for the information about it, I’m also getting that ASAP.
    Thank you for your videos and for the time and effort to make them and share them with us.

  7. Gloria Taylor says:

    I love how you cut out the star & embossed it with grogeous colors. What I really want to mention is how you lay the embroidery on the card by just using the adhesives in the back and not worry on putting it in the front. Yes simply card but absolutely awesome. Thank you, Darlene!

  8. Sharon Hayes says:

    Darlene, I am always inspired by your videos. Your blog is bookmarked on my iPad, and I check your site daily eventhough I know your videos are on Wednesdays. Thank you for the tips on vellum and your expertise that you share.

  9. Casey Thrush says:

    I love it!!! Very Awesome!!! I love that you re-use things such as that star background because when I saw you use it previously I had to have it so now I have it and can use if for this card!

  10. Anita Holmes says:

    Gorgeous card Darlene, thanks for sharing. I am now at the end of 2011 of your video’s and just read the drama you went thru’ with SU. So, I just want to say, I am so glad that you did not take down any of your amazing video’s ( which I so enjoy ) and that you made the right decision. I, like you, enjoy all the different products in the paper crafting world and could not imagine just using one line.
    You have a wonderful talent and are so inspirational to everyone that comes across your site.
    Again, TFS
