Well today is the 5th weekend in the month.

I generally have 4 scheduled challenges a month for My Time To Create Challenge Team.

I let them opt to take a break this week! I should have taken one myself! LOL!

Anyway-I decided to do a technique challenge instead. I hope you find it fun and inspiring 😀

Dry Embossed Vellum

I LOVE using Vellum Cardstock. Today’s challenge is to DRY EMBOSS it!


If you play link your creation HERE

Here is a quick video to give you the HOW TO! My card for this technique uses a stamp set from My Favorite Things Presents: Sara Williams Spring Sprouts.Bloomin vellumvellum-2.JPG

I had just picked up this fun and funky patterned paper. I felt that the flower and butterfly from this set not only MATCHED my paper, but showcased how fun and EASY this technique can be!

The open lines of the flower and butterfly are raised up. So cute in person.

All you need is:

An OPEN line image

Permanent ink

Vellum Carstock

Embossing Stylus with mouse pad/embossing/piercing pad

Copic or other markers

Close up dry embossed vellum detail


Obviously it is very difficult for you to get a visual of the actual effect this has on your creation, but trust me, its that little extra POP that makes it a WOW! The detail is raised up and pops out at you!

A fun and easy technique.

Just stamp you image in permanent ink.

Turn over

Dry emboss area/areas of choice (don’t press too hard!)

Flip over to front, and gently color!

Use glue dots to adhere to layer of choice-

and DONE!

Now its YOUR turn.

So have fun with it.

I cannot wait to see what YOU come up with.
