CTMH Technique Blog Hop - In Love with Vellum

Thank you so much for joining me and some fellow Close To My Heart Consultants for "In Love with Vellum". While CTMH wasn't carrying vellum for several years, did you know it's back?! It is and it's of a great quality - a thicker texture - which makes it easy to work with while including it in your artwork. In fact, you are bound to find some fun ways in which we have used it so be sure to continue through this hop. 

If you are coming from Danielle's Blog, you are on the right track. You can find a complete list of participants at the bottom of this post, if you were to get lost along the way. 
There are many different things to do with vellum although I kept my use of it pretty simple for this card. I used the Archival Black ink pad - the ink we carry that is perfect for vellum because it dries completely with no opportunity to smear once it does. That's a huge plus as not all inks do the same. 
Because I did not want any adhesive to show through the back of my stamped image, but instead wanted the pattered paper to be exposed, I put a little bit where the "extra" banner is stamped and behind the piece of faux washi tape made from a small piece of White Glitter Paper. Doing so was enough to hold the vellum in place. For a few finishing touches, I added a heart out of Bashful Glitter Paper, a few Gold Glitter Gems, and some White Twine.
Not only am I in love with vellum, I also love the stamp I used on it, "Notes of Inspiration". It's pretty inspirational, if you ask me!

Consider leaving a comment before you had over to Haley's Blog to see what she and the other Blog Hop participants have created to share with you. We appreciate you stopping by!

Enjoy the rest of your week!

  1. Melissa, your card came out so pretty. I like the way you secured the vellum to your card and the heart made with the glitter paper is adorable.

  2. Love your card. The vellum adds a soft look to the pattern paper.

  5. Beautiful card! I love glitter paper as "tape".

  6. Great card - I too hadn't noticed that stamp set - need to get it. Also, love the attachment of the vellum and how it softens the paper under it.
