Welcome everyone! Today I have a video over on the MFT Youtube channel featuring heat embossing on vellum. It’s something I don’t do very often because honestly, vellum always intimidated me but it’s so gorgeous.
I’m also going to be ink blending with the new MFT ink pads and colors.
You can view the video down below or HERE on the MFT Youtube channel.
I couldn’t decide which color combo to use so I created two cards. This first card is ink blending Caribbean Sea and Sour Apple using a blending brush and smooth white cardstock.
For both cards, I’m heat embossing the Wild Poppies image onto Vellum with gold embossing powder. Then using the coordinating die to cut it out.
I created this amazing splatter look by heat embossing the Brush Splatter stamp set onto the background. On one card, I heat embossed it in white and the other is in gold.
Then I used a sentiment from the Well Hello stamp set heat embossed on black cardstock with white/gold embossing powder.
This card features Fire Coral, Candied Yam, Lemon Chiffon, Sour Apple and Caribbean Sea to create a rainbow.
I think one of the biggest struggles I have is how to adhere the vellum to the card. I am using a Quickie Glue pen today. I added bits of the glue because a few spots of the heat embossed area and after attaching to my card front, I weighed it down with something heavy for a bit.
This seems to hold really well and the glue is not showing through the vellum.
The MFT inks blend beautifully and have a gorgeous color selection!
If you haven’t tried heat embossing on Vellum before, give it a try. It add such a delicate touch to the card.
