Welcome to my entry for the DeNami Pretty Pastel Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Michelle Gross: http://studiomsg.blogspot.com/
I am really excited to be part of this hop--it is my first Blog Hop and thank you so much for participating!
Here is my first card:
For this hop, I wanted to do some embossing on vellum. I used Denami J30 Tulips and stamped on a vellum overlay with first Lime pigment ink from Clearsnap, and then with Orchid pigment ink from Clearsnap. I used a stamp positioner to form the layout of the tulip trios, and then stamped each in turn, taking time to do the green leaves first, and then the pink flowers. It took 6 passes, but I think they each stamped and embossed cleanly this way. I then colored the back of each tulip, turning the vellum over, with coordinating colors of Tombow markers. I then adhered the panel to a pink A2 notecard with Xyron adhesive.
Next, I heat embossed CL-GD002 Spring Garden canopy using white ink and white powder on a separate vellum panel. I again colored the back of the vellum with Tombow markers. I cut out around the scallops and then adhered this panel below the tulips with Xyron adhesive. Last, I stamped F148 Thanks a Bunch at the bottom of the notecard with Memento Rosebud permanent dye ink.
This card is great when you need a flat card for mailing purposes. The only dimension is in the heat embossing but the embossing gives it a lovely dimensional look.
But, you might like a more layered look. Here is another card with the same materials and the same technique, but the card has more layers. This time I did not adhere the vellum with adhesive, but used a folded peice of vellum, laying it over a white notecard and attaching it with a ribbon. I added a few extra butterflies this time from the Spring Garden set, and stamped the canopy with Orchid pigment ink before heat embossing with clear powder.
