The sentiment, “Our thoughts are with you,” is the message I want to send today.

Vellum Bliss


To go along with the sentiment, I decided to make some vellum flowers with heat embossing.

The flower is from the Botanical Bliss stamp set, which I stamped in VersaMark on Vellum cardstock. Then, I sprinkled the three flowers with White embossing powder, and used the Heat Tool to set the powder.


Happy with the shiny outlines, I began coloring the flowers on the backside with Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers. You’ll find the Stampin’ Blends colors I used in my Product List below. 

TIP: It does not look pretty on the side you are coloring, but looks terrific when you turn it over.


After coloring, I fussy cut the flowers with my Stampin’ Up! Paper Snips, the best scissors around! I discovered that cutting around a heat embossed image is especially easy, because the raised line provides a nice cutting edge.

Wanting a clean and simple look for my flowers, I kept the background Whisper White with Subtle Textured embossing, and adhered this to a Thick Whisper White card base. The two white branches were cut with a die in the Botanical Tags die set, and glued on an angle. The flowers are attached with Mini-Dimensionals at their centers.


The sentiment is from the Lasting Lily stamp set, a Sale-A-Bration stamp set, FREE with a qualifying order and available through March 31st.

“Our thoughts are with you” was stamped in Black ink on Whisper White cardstock, and cut with a Layering Ovals die. It received the Subtle Textured treatment also, and was placed on Dimensionals.


In case you missed my card from a couple weeks ago, here it is:
