Creative uses for Vellum

 
Hello, Friends. Happy Tuesday. The Design Team at Magnolia-licious & Wee Stamps are here to challenge you with…
 
creative uses of Vellum
 
The DT has some gorgeous projects so stop over at the Challenge blog and take a look. I hope we inspire you to create something special with your Vellum.
 
 
I used my new stamp, Sitting Tilda with Butterfly from the Once Upon a Time collection. For my creative use with Vellum I heat embossed the Butterfly Kit stamps also from this new collection with purple and green embossing powders. Then I cut them out and scattered them around my card.
 
I also used a few new techniques on my card this week. I colored some clouds in Tilda’s background with Copics. I love the look of these clouds and the sky. Alyce from Kit and Clowder has a great tutorial on You Tube. I also used Fran-tage vintage heat embossing powders for my Magnolia Floral Swirl Corner die, the corrugated heart tag from Jillibean Soup and the buttons from my stash. What a fabulous product this is and I love playing with this fabulous product. You’ll be seeing more of this fun technique on my cards.
 
 
My papers are from Magnolia, Once Upon a Time collection and Prima. The cardstock is Bazzill as usual. My flowers are Magnolia Peonies die cuts layered and curled for dimension. I add pearl brads to hold them together and finished them with a little Gesso. The chrysanthemum is by Kort & Godt from The Ribbon Girl.
 
 
I masked Tilda on the Spring Fence and colored them with Copics. Both of these are available at Magnolia-licous which is my first place to shop for Magnolia goodies.
 
 
The cute little charm on my heart tag is from Prima attached to my button with some baker's twine by Doodlebug Design.
 
I’m entering my card in the following challenges:
 
Totally Tilda – Heat Embossing
Make It Monday – Anything Goes
 
Please join us for the challenge as you can be entered in the draw for a chance to win a…
 
Surprise from Magnolia-licious & Wee Stamps
 
 
And don’t forget to leave a comment on the DT blogs and/or the Challenge blog for a chance to win a weekly prize.
 
 
For all the details, visit Magnolia-licious & Wee Stamps Challenge.
 
Hope you enjoyed my card today and come join us for the challenge. I’ll be back tomorrow with another lovely Magnolia project.
 
Hugz,
