Stampin Up has introduced a new kind of vellum. Its vellum with a variety of images embossed in black onto each sheet. It is called Graceful Glass designer vellum and it is awesome!
This vellum coordinates with the new Painted Glass stamp set and framelits bundle. If you love to color, this is the perfect vellum for you. If you don't love to color- this is also great for you, because it is so easy to color because of the embossed lines. It makes it simple to stay "in the lines" with little effort.
Here I colored the stained glass window vellum with Stampin Blends alcohol markers. The markers dry nicely on the vellum. I layered a piece of whisper white cardstock behind the vellum to give the effect of light coming through the glass.
Did you know that our Liquid Multi- Purpose glue will not show through vellum? Its perfect for attaching vellum to any cardstock.
The Stampin Blends that I used are rich razzleberry, old olive, daffodil delight, night of navy and calypso coral. It really was so easy to color in. The black embossed images made it easy to stay in the lines. In this picture, if you look close you can see the embossed black lines.
Here's another close up.
I layered soft seafoam and basic black as the card base. I think it highlights the stained glass's soft glow.
The Graceful Glass vellum has many beautiful patterns. Here's another one I did with a row of birds on a wire.
I used the same colors here, in addition to the pool party Stampin Blends. I also layered whisper white behind the vellum here as well.
I added a bermuda bay striped ribbon around the front of the card.
The Graceful Glass vellum is so elegant and such a lovely stained glass look. The greetings on both cards are from the Itty Bitty Greeting stamp set. Its perfect for a small sentiment on these cards. However, the coordinating Painted Glass stamp set also works wonderfully as well.
There are so many beautiful designs and images in the Graceful Glass vellum pack, these are just two of them.
I hope you give this vellum a try. Its gloriously beautiful and fun to color, for sure.
Thanks for stopping by today.
Until the next time...
Keep on Stampin and Come back again soon!
