Scrappy Angie's: Vellum Embossing Color

Today I have a super fun tutorial for you inspired by Kristina Werner. With vellum, a few colored markers and embossing - you can create a stained glass effect for your card. Let's get started!


1. Get a piece of vellum (4" x 5 1/4") and use an anti-static pad to remove the static. You can also opt to use talcum powder.

2. Get a stamp and ink it up with some Versamark embossing ink. Then stamp it onto your vellum.

3. Next, apply some white embossing powder onto your stamped images.

4. Heat it up with the Ranger heat tool. If it warps a little - it's alright. But do not overheat it!

5. Next, grab your favorite markers. Here I am using some Copic markers but you can also use Distress markers or Memento markers.

6. This is important. FLIP your vellum so that your embossed image is facing downwards. Then color in the images - keeping within the white lines.

7.  When you are done, this is how it would look like. Do not worry. Proceed to the following step. :)

8. Now, FLIP the vellum back to the embossed side and wa-la! A stained glass effect.

I then completed the card with an embossed sentiment and 2 decorated borders. Remember this - when you adhere your vellum onto your cardstock - you would want to apply glue on the white embossed areas - not the part where you colored the image in. Hence, why I only glued the top and bottom :) An easy way out :)

Here's my completed card!

Hope this tutorial's been fun for you today.
