To Vellum or Not To Vellum...that is the question.

FWF my sporadic entries:

Ok and we are back.  School is back in session, my oldest is off at college and my guest have left.  My house still remains a complete disaster but I just had to do something creative with paper because otherwise I would have not excuse to buy anymore stuff.  This week I wanted to try to do something with vellum.  I have seen so lovely card on Unity Stamps Blog and on the Unity Show and Tell on Facebook using vellum.  I made the first card, than decided to take the vellum off as it did not seem bright enough for me.   Than I made a second with it on.  I really had fun using spray mist and the back ground stamp.  A little messy but I think it was worth it. You be the judge.

Unity Stamp Company: Love {in the background}KOM 8/14,
Paper: Studio Calico 
Misting ink: Huey Misting spray
embellishments: random in stash and MME enamel dots
Twine: American Crafts
Ink: Memento 
Vellum: Paper Studio

Also the stamp sentiment is straight it is just that I have been drinking wine all day and can not take a decent picture...only joking...or am I?

Thanks for looking.  Have a great weekend.



  1. I love your card - hey if you are drinking wine all day I hope it is good

    1. Sadly it was coffee, but I need an excuse for my poor photographic skills.

  2. Love this! I love using spray inks!

  3. Very pretty! I love the heart background and I think I like the one without the vellum more. The colors just really POP!

  4. Works we'll either way. So pretty.

  5. Both cards look great, but I agree with you, the one without vellum does have more *oomph*. :)

  6. They're both very pretty, depending on whether you like a crisp image or a softer look - each works well!

  7. I like both of them, but I'm partial to the happy, bright colors!

  8. Love both versions of the card and LOL about your photo taking skills, I suffer the same affliction!!

  9. Love the way the background fades away to make room for the sentiment!

  10. Thanks Mary Anne, that is what I was going for. You made my day.

  11. Both are great but I like the one without the vellum better.

  12. Super cute! I like the one without vellum!
