Good Morning Stampers,
Happy JULY!!!!! Can you believe that half of 2013 is over?
Today I wanted to share with you a version of a card I created from my June Technique Class. I created this one with a couple of things in mind…I needed a wedding card form my nieces wedding on June 21st and I wanted to show my Technique Class how to color velum.
It is a beautiful technique and gives a very soft look.
Using the Secret Garden Stamp set I stamped my vellum with VersaMark and applied white Embossing Powder. Remember to make sure you use the Embossing Buddy over the area you are going to emboss. Just as you would when embossing on card stock.
Heat set the embossing powder and cut each flower out using the matching framlits and Big Shot.
On page #184 of the new Stampin' Up! catalog you will see on the bottom right the NEW Magnetic Platform Item # 130658.
This makes using the framelits SO SO SO easy now. That Magnetic Platform holds the metal framelits in place…no more using post it notes to hold them in place. That never really worked 100 percent of the time. THIS WILL!!
Now for coloring your velum. Once you have the flowers cut out you want to turn them over and using a Stampin' Sponge you want to color the back ver gently. Gently because Velum is delicate and you don't want to rip it.
You can either use the reinkers or your classic ink pads to color your sponge before sponging the back of your flowers. I rubbed the sponge in a circular motion and then pounced on the color. Allow your colored flowers to dry for a bit before adhering them to your project. I used glue dots to adhere them to my card. You can simply hide the glue dot with a pearl over it as I did in my card.
Hope you give this technique a try.

Happy Stamping ~
