The Stamp Ink Paper design team is back with another challenge for you this week and for this challenge, we’re featuring a product; vellum.
Now if you’re like me, you have a love / hate relationship with Vellum. I love the appeal that it adds to my creations, but I hate that you can usually see the adhesive peaking through the front of that little beast we know as vellum. So when I was tasked with this challenge, I immediately thought; I hate that thing about vellum! Buttttttttt, I just got a bunch of new 2nd release Sale-A-Bration items and so I was super excited to incorporate those too!!
And then I decided to try something completely different and didn’t even know if the thing I was going to attempt was gonna work… Incorporate vellum in a way that’s still pleasing to my eyes and doesn’t show the adhesive. Sure I could have layered and layered AND LAYERED, which I normally do without hesitation. But for this challenge, I decided to attempt heat embossing onto vellum. Guys. Guess what? PROBLEM SOLVED!
See the three glorious flowers?? They’re HEAT EMBOSSED ONTO VELLUM and you can’t even see the Stampin Dimensionals that I used to pop them up!!!
So while we on the design team provide you these challenges as a way to push your creativity, we are also pushed to use products in new and different ways TO inspire you all to play along. Is it my favorite card ever? Nope. BUT I tried something I hadn’t ever done before and I really love the concept of heat embossing on vellum. Maybe it’s been done before, probably that’s true. I just hadn’t seen it and therefore knew that I must try! And now that I have, I’m super excited to try this technique with other heat emboss powder colors!
