Va-Va-Vellum
Beautiful Projects



Hi Everyone,

If you saw my last Finding Friday Inspiration Post and video, you know that I am back to crafting with vellum. My weekly class this past Wednesday was all about vellum and all the wonderful things you can do with it. My advanced stampers brought a brand new stamper, so she was in for a challenge. Boy was she great. She kept right up and all her projects turned out great. We embossed the vellum both dry and wet. We colored the vellum and we punched out the vellum. I hope you enjoy the projects.

As you can see, when you run the vellum through the Big Shot
with an embossing folder, you get the vellum cracking white
which makes a great affect. We sponged the backside
with Peek-a-Boo Peach and Watermelon Wonder.

Okay, who doesn't love the Floral Boutique
Designer Series Paper? This rich Night of Navy
is so beautiful. The Remarkable You flower was
embossed with silver and then we water colored
the back with Night of Navy ink.

By water coloring, you can create flower that has
a lot of dimension. So beautiful!
As you know, I like to take inspiration from a lot of things. I also like to C.A.S.E from other stampers. I got a card from a swap a couple of years ago and I had an idea from the layout. I hope you enjoy.
The card on the right was created by Christy Tobin. I decided to
C.A.S.E. her layout and show you what I came up with.

This bright project uses the new In-Color Berry Burst Card
stock, ink, and ribbon. It also has been partially embossed
with the gently falling embossing folder.

At class, we created this flower using the Eastern Medallion
Thinlits. The saying is from the new Eastern Beauty Stamp set.
So cute!
Well these were our projects and congratulations to Linda for persevering. Her projects were great, and she was very proud of herself. So, if you haven't tried working with vellum before, now is your time. Take a chance. I bet you won't be disappointed.
