Hi Friends! I hope you had a nice weekend! They sure go by fast though, don’t they? Yesterday I filmed my video demonstration of card #2 featuring the Stampin’ Blends Vellum Technique using the “Better Places” stamp set (new host reward set available May 4th).
While the video was uploading I spent a few hours outside cleaning up my front flower beds. It was 22′, blue skies and sunny and absolutely GORGEOUS! Today I’ve got my video finished & uploaded it for you…
I just LOVE how this card turned out! I love the colours, the texture from the Painted 3D embossing folder and the Gilded Leafing. Imagine using greens and reds or shades of blues to make Christmas cards using this technique! Or pinks and reds with heart stamps for Valentine’s, anniversary or wedding cards! The possibilities are endless.
Here’s my original card, using different colours of Stampin’ Blends Markers…
Using 99% Rubbing Alcohol (isopropyl) makes a huge difference for this technique (vs 70%). You can also use our Water Painters or Stampin’ Spritzer or even a sponge instead of a paint brush to apply the alcohol to the vellum. You’ll get a different look for each but they’re all going to be beautiful!
Products used on these cards that will be available on May 4, 2021 from our new Annual Catalogue are:
- 2021-2023 In Colour Stampin’ Blends markers: Pale Papaya #155519, Polished Pink #155520, Soft Succulent #155521, Fresh Freesia #155518, not used was Evening Evergreen #155517

- Beauty of Friendship Stamp Set (for sentiment) #154983
I hope you enjoyed today’s card & video! I’ll have my next video featuring my third card with the “Stampin’ Blends Vellum Technique” ready for you later this week.
Enjoy the day, stay well & HAPPY STAMPING!
