Vellum Secret Garden

Hi Friends! Tina here, back with another "Passport Pals" guest post.  Today's card features a lot of retiring items that I just love to play with:

I stamped the images from Secret Garden onto vellum with Versamark Ink and embossed in Pewter.  Then I used the coordinating Secret Garden framelits to cut them out.  To colour the flowers I just used my markers on the back side of the vellum - I love how the colours blend together.  Then I used the Pistachio Pudding and Old Oliver markers directly onto the leaf stamp before I cut it out with the framelit.

The Square Lattice embossing folder is awesome and I'm sad it's retiring, so I just had to use it on the piece of Pink Pirouette card stock.  The 'Hello' sentiment is from another favourite stamp set that is also retiring called Lacy and Lovely and I embossed it in Pewter as well.  And I don't know about you, but I use the Scallop Border Trim Punch allllll the time; if you don't have this punch I'd definately get it before it's gone for good!

  1. Tina, this is gorgeous. I have needed an idea for embossing for a DT challenge and your idea is perfect. I haven't used this set much and don't think the dies have ever been out of the package. I hope you don't mind me taking your idea and running with it. TFS.

  2. What a simple technique but oh what a beautifully satisfying effect!
