Wanna try a cool technique with vellum?

It’s sort of a combo technique!

If you love heat embossing, this project is for YOU!

Or maybe you love playing with vellum? Then this is really up your alley!

Perhaps solid stamps and getting some neat textured looks is what you’re after?

Then you’re in the right place!

Take a peek at the card we made in yesterday’s Facebook live!

Add some neat :”texture” to your pumpkins with hardly any effort at all!

Who said your stamping couldn’t be cool, textured and fun all at the same time?

We played with the Pick of the Patch bundle yesterday.

It’s my favourite for fall and Hallowe’en in the 2023 Holiday Mini Catalogue from Stampin’ Up!!


Because you can use it for fall ideas (minus the pumpkin face!) just like I shared in this rubber stamping for awesome card making.

And it’s ideal for Hallowe’en too!

Let’s see what we made together (and don’t miss the other ones I shared in the video!

How’d She Do That?

You know what really gives me a charge?

Besides plaing and crafting and having fun in my studio?

Showing you new ways to use the stamp supplies your already own.

Today, it’s about pairing up your vellum cardstock with your regular Classic inks, a bit of clear embossing powder and ‘Kapow’, you’ve got a fantastic new way to showcase your stamps.

While you can always use regular Vellum Cardstock for this technique, we amped it up with the Vellum Basics 12×12 Specialty Vellum for today’s idea.

(Make sure you see the video to see how exciting it is when you start to heat up that embossing powder. It just comes to life!)

If you’ve missed this bundle in the catalogue, you can see it here!

Don’t you love how cute that punch is?

And don’t miss the little crow! (See how I pulled him in to today’s card too!)

Let’s see this neat technique and how to make this card!

What do you notice first about those pumpkins?

Is it the shiny colour?

The slightly bumpy texture (which your friends are going to want to run their fingers over, believe me!)?

Or maybe it’s how the leaves are showing through?

Which part is the BEST for you?

Cool cool texture is. so easy to create!

No matter which of the three backgrounds you use from the Vellum Basics paper, you’ll get a cool exure look with this technique!

You probably want to focus on solid stamp images. Ones like the lightbulbs from the Merry & Bright bundle or the Cheerful Daisies!
