Stamping on Vellum

Fall is a favorite time of year to pull out my warm and cozy paper-crafting products in a beautiful array of colors.

It’s Jill Cornell here today to share a Thanksgiving card idea with you, and this time I even incorporated stamps! I adore the “Harvest Lane” collection from Simple Stories and featured the line on this card. I cut the “thankful” bingo card in approximately half and then tied twine around it before tying it in a bow around a heart sticker.  A couple of sentiment stickers adhered to stamped leaves – “blessed” and “grateful” – keep with the Thanksgiving theme.

Here’s a look at the dimension of the card…

And I’m going to share a simple tutorial with you on how I stamped the leaves. The set is “Mod Leaves” by Cocoa Daisy. I used pigment inks from American Crafts with clear embossing power. And yes, I stamped on vellum! I love the softness that vellum brings to my projects. (Note: Do not hold heat gun too close to the vellum when embossing and keep the gun moving so the vellum does not melt.)

Stamp the image with a coordinating ink color. (Note: I have found that I am able to get a crisp image by using a foam mat underneath my paper.)

  Sprinkle with embossing powder and apply heat gun.

Cut out the image and adhere to project.

Stamping is a great way to add pops of color to projects and the heat embossing helps preserve the images.

Happy Thanksgiving!

    • I liked the card and the fact that you aren’t scared share your new ideas not kwoning if it’ll work or not. I think that’s what Crafting/stamping/scrapbooking/card making is all about discovering your inner talent not bothered by the end results. I also love the fact that you have your own way of doing your tutorials you aren’t trying to copy others ways. Great job for you!!!
