Addicted to CAS Challenge #50 Vellum

Hello lovely ladies and welcome to a brand new challenge over at ATCAS, we have a fantastic code word for you this time round and I should know cos I chose it !!!!!

Yes I’m your hostess for the next fortnight but sorry no drinks trolley this time round due to my immobility but I have created a little bar in the corner , so if you would like to file past in an orderly fashion and help yourselves I would be very grateful. Trying to push a drinks trolley whilst on crutches is a recipe for disaster.

ATCAS - code word vellum

I love vellum and use it in many of my cards especially for envelopes,however this time round I made the envelope and forgot to photograph it and now its too dark .

Now here’s a first for me I actually like a card I made, yep no whingeing or complaining from me I love it and it looks so much better in real life, but where is the vellum you may ask well……

I used my Cameo to cut this gorgeous image it took several goes as this really is a very detailed image it required several passes and a new blade but I got there in the end. I tore up some vellum and laid it at angles behind the image and added two weeny bits of green vellum behind the leaves. I created a frame with the cameo, some foam and a computer generated sentiment and there you have it. Unfortunately the Vellum is not showing up so well in the photo but believe you me it’s there and it looks fabulous !!!! Did I just say fabulous,  wow I may need to go and lie down.

Our guest designer the fabulous Hannelie is still with us and she along with the rest of the amazing DT have come up with some outstanding cards , so why not pop on over to ATCAS and feast your eyes and maybe join in.

We are once again sponsored by Scribbles Designs who are offering three digs to the winner

I love vellum and use it quite a lot as it embosses beautifully , I used my spellbinders heart dies for the centre and then colored a couple of them with pink Pan Pastels. A variety of  embossing folders were used and lovely little die cut and embossing set from SU. Added a few sequins and as you can see I still haven’t learnt how to scatter them in a care free manner and there you have it.

Our sponsor for the next fortnight is Scribbles Designs
