Sweet Stamps- Anything Goes+ Parchment Technique

At Sweet Stamps, we are combining our Monthly challenge- Parchment- with our weekly challenge- Anything Goes : )
 These fun stamps were just released last month and I was itching to ink them up!  I used the antistatic pad over the Parchment vellum and used the Sweet Stamps White Dye ink and White embossing powder on the flowers. I colored with Copics on the back of the vellum, and it gave the flowers a greenish hue, so I colored them again on the front. I pierced around the edges of the vellum as well. I love the soft look of the Parchment vellum.

  The accent pieces are chipboard accents called *GLOBECRAFT & PICCOLO*  by, and I love how detailed they are and easy to emboss using the enamel embossing adhesive- and I love the fab embossing enamels- the colors are so pretty plus they are mixed in with a shimmery/glittery metallic- love the way they look!

Here is a quick look at how quick & easy the Enamel embossing powders are to use- and hope you can see the fab sparkle  )
 Dab the Enamel Embossing Powder Adhesive onto the swirls.

 After gently rolling the powder in the bottle, I pour it over the chipboard using a coffee filter. Can you see how sparkly it is???  I take a piece of the chipboard sheet that is unused after removing the shapes and make a sample and attach it to the top of each of the bottles- you can see this in my adhesive picture above.

Here are the Sweet Stamps products I used this week:

Love the way the flowers turned out on the vellum, Shelly! I have to dig out my embossing powders. I was reorganizing and put them in a box somewhere because I hadn't used them in ages. Now I'm inspired to do some vellum work. Thanks for the inspiration.

Donna K said...

So lovely, Shelly! The blue, yellow combination is so very sweet. Thanks for sharing how you apply your piccolo items as well...they are a perfect touch!

Great card Shelley, love the baby blue card against your patterned papers. The embossing on the vellum really stands out and the green really pops.
