Vellum "Lace"

I was so taken with Godelieve's cards using the new lace background stamp on vellum that I decided to try it with the stamps I have. For this first one, I used the new cling Heart Flourish as my "lace", stamped on a pale pink vellum and embossed in white. This same heart flourish design is on the new blush print flowers!

Supplies: CG169 Heart Flourish, CL156 Treasure the Moments, CH205 Blush Print Flowers, pearlized pink and white cardstocks, pale pink vellum, Versamark and Worn Lipstick distress inks, white embossing powder, white buttons

And on this one, my choice for the lace was Flower Wallpaper. That was stamped on white vellum, heat embossed with white, and then put over the same pearly pink cardstock base. My added flowers, also made of hearts, were stamped on white vellum and heat embossed in white, adding a pink button to each and securing them together with white embroidery floss tied in bows, then popped above the surface of the card.

Supplies: CG123 Flower Wallpaper, CL151 Share Laughter, Northwoods sentiment, pearlized pink and white cardstock, white vellum, VersaMark ink, white embossing powder, pink buttons, white embroidery floss

  18. Hi Patricia, I sent you an email re: your questions, but I don't know whether it will go through, so, in short almost everything on both of these cards is from Hero Arts, including the flowers, which are called Art Flowers....these particular ones are from the blush set, and all the stock numbers you will need are listed in small print under each card. I encourage you to go to Godelieve's site (I inked it in my first paragraph) and from there to her blog, and search under "vellum"; she does wonderful things! Hope this helps!
