Stamping on Vellum

I found inspiration for this card on splitcoaststampers.com. I used one sheet of Whisper White and one sheet of vellum paper. The vellum is folded over the white and is held on by the twine. I first stamped Lovely As a Tree stamp in versamark directly on the vellum. The greeting is from the Ornamental Pine stamp set. I then sprinkled  white embossing powder and used the heat gun to emboss it.  I masked off the snowy ground on the white paper and using Always Artichoke ink stamped the trees in a random order creating a forest.  I also sponged the white paper with Always Artichoke to make the embossing on the vellum pop up. Enjoy!

  3. Beautiful. I have been wanting to try embossing on vellum and I believe you have given me the courage to do it for 2015 Christmas cards. Thank you. I am going to hopefully find someone selling the Lovely as a tree stamp.

  5. I know this post is years old now, but I'm hoping you still get notifications for it. I have not been able to emboss on vellum without the vellum warping. How did you do it?

    1. I have done quite a bit of embossing on vellum and it's been very successful. I think that you either are using too thin of vellum (I was using Stampin Up vellum) or you are keeping the heating tool too close to vellum. I keep it just far enough so the embossing powder melts but I do try to keep it as far as I can. I have done luminaries with vellum as well and they came out great. Hope it helps and hope that it works! Keep me posted!

    2. Thank you so much. I book marked your page to let you know how it goes. I'm not sure how thick my vellum is (honestly didn't realize it came in different thicknesses). I'm going to give it another couple goes tonight, see if I'm just doing it way too close. If that's the case, I'm going to look for a thicker vellum. Appreciate your input! Thank you!
