Wrapping up Vellum Tips

Hello Friends, Last week was really fun sharing my vellum tips with you all week. I can't thank you enough for showing your support on the Penny Black blog! All of the time and effort really was worth it because of you all! THANK YOU :) In case you look back at my previous posts & things look different don't think you are crazy because I edited the posts to condense them. I still have to pick the winners so I hope you understand I'll be a day late and announce them on Monday.

This is my tutorial on what I call "reverse embossing" on vellum.
Wishing you...
Using Versa Mark stamp onto your pink vellum with a steady hand. Emboss with white embossing powder and set aside.  Stamp the dress onto another piece of vellum with Staz on ink. Heat set it for a quick dry and flip your paper over. Emboss the back of your stamped dress with a background stamp for  a lacy effect using your white powder again. Cut out dress and set aside. Now you want to stamp your image onto a die cut  with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and color your images. I like to add black lines to the tuxedo and some white highlights to the flower bouquet.
Wishing you...
Use a butterfly punch to cut from your embossed vellum scraps.  Use a Tombow marker to color a portion of the sentiment ONLY and stamp on some white paper. Punch out with a cloud punch and color the could with some markers. Assemble your card. Place tiny dots of glue in the corners of the vellum and some in the middle of the vellum that will be covered. Use dimensional foam for a more dramatic effect.

Use your scraps to layer up the inside. Use your Tombow marker to color directly on the "happiness" portion of the stamp. Stamp on some scrap card stock.
Wishing you...
I just had to add some eye lashes and a little bit of cleavage. 

Here are  two ways to I like to fold vellum.
Score your vellum at at 1/2" then add 1" to score and keep adding 1/2" and 1" increments. Let me know if I have confused you and send me an email if I have.

This stamp is from "To You" 330-067 Copic markers and Tombo markers.

For this I used my paper scraps from the Penny Black's new mix and match papers with an SRM Sticker (purchase here). See you Monday with five winners. Hugs, Kathy

hi Kathy, your tips were amazing. I am truly inspired and enjoyed all your projects. The results you have achieved are really impressive. I enjoyed your week on PB.

wowie what a great card you've made, so sweet!

Katie said...

Wow, I like the inside of the card as well as the outside. I did not see that on the PB blog. You did a great job on your vellum cards for the blog last week. I was excited to see what you came up with each day! You are an amazing artist. By the way, I love your vellum folds, so subtle yet sophisticated (I don't know how to describe it, but seeing it for the second time, I like it even more, seems like this would be a great technique for a wedding invitation). Have a great rest of the weekend!

Love the pleating info - not confusing at all. This week has so encouraged me & I've loved reading your tutorials & posts - I'm very new to using vellum but so excited by the possibilites of combining it with stamping & colouring. And to see that featured by one of the major Stamp Companies really made my week. Thank you so much for all your hard work & also for your lovely encouragement personally.
