July Papertrey blog hop



Today is the papertrey blog hop and you can find out more info and see the list of participating blogs Here. For this month's challenge you were to use vellum. Other nice thing is that one of the dirty girl challenges this month was also to use vellum so I was happy to be able to combine the 2. I have 3 cards to show you tonight using vellum and all 3 of them use it a little differently.



This first card I stamped the ink directly onto the vellum and then layered the vellum onto white CS with vellum adhesive. The sentimnent was stamped and sponged while still in the nestability die.

Supplies:
stamps- PTI garden of life, birthday basics
CS- summer sunrise, choc chip, white, vellum
ink- summer sunrise, choc chip, spring moss
accessories- nestabilites, satin ribbon, sponge


The second card the vellum layer is placed over the white cardstock which is where the flowers are stamped. I did this to soften the bg and try a different look. The vellum is attached with vellum adhesive.




Supplies:
stamps- PTI garden of life, borders and corners circles
CS- PTI plum pudding, lavender moon, white, vellum
ink- plum pudding, lavender moon
Accessories- Marvy circle punches, plum ribbon, shimmer brads, paper piercer


The third card is a shaker card with the vellum layer run through a cuttlebug embossing folder.



The vellum is attached with adhesive under the image and with the brads. I used kosher salt for the snow inside the shaker. This card is pretty self explanatory and here you can find a tutorial on how to make a shaker card.

Supplies:
stamps- PTI mailbox greetings
CS- bashful blue, brocade blue, vellum, white
ink- palette noir, brocade blue
accessories- copics, silver hardware, taffeta ribbon, snowflakes cb folder, acetate, kosher salt, nestabilities


I hope you have enjoyed my cards for today. Have fun blog hopping!
