Create the illusion of depth and dimension with the Double Stamped Vellum technique. Lisa and I loved experimenting with our favorite stamps, along with embossing powders and translucent paper. The effect is amazing and we think you'll love it too!
Double Stamped Vellum Tutorial
Dust a piece of vellum with an anti-static powder.
Stamp the Ever After leafy stem image onto the vellum repeatedly using your favorite clear embossing ink. (Club Scrap's Watermark ink works great for this!)
Cover the images with white embossing powder.
Heat set to melt the powder. NOTE: Be extra careful so you don't scorch the delicate vellum.
Flip the panel over so it is face-down on your work surface. Stamp the reverse side with the solid leaf image using Spruce Ink.
Make a frame for your card using die cut shapes (or a craft knife and grid ruler). Attach the vellum to the frame using Bookbinding Glue in a Needle-tipped Applicator. Trim small pieces of black foam adhesive and add them to the perimeter of the vellum/frame panel.
Create a backing for the stamped panel from a piece of white paper trimmed slightly smaller than the vellum.
Adhere the piece to a Dark Green mat, then mat again with a white panel. Finally, attach the layered pieces to a black card base.
Complete the card with a stamped sentiment.

Use the same steps above to create a slimline card featuring the Farmstand pumpkin stamp. One side is embossed in white, the reverse side in Orange Hybrid ink. Complete the card with additional hand-colored stamped images, as well as die cut shapes/sentiments.
