Oh! my, I have the best tip to adhere the vellum to your paper projects for you all today. It is the best way that I found on how to adhere vellum and no glue is showing through the vellum. It is clean and the vellum stays flat on your projects.
First I want to give a big shoot out to my friend Linda Bawin I learn this amazing tip from her. Thank you, Linda, for sharing this amazing tip.
In the video, I share how to adhere to the vellum plus a few extra tips for today’s card. You can view the video below or on my YouTube channel.
The best tip to adhere vellum
Squeeze a few drops of liquid glue on to a silicone craft sheet. Tap a sponge on to the liquid glue and sponge on the back of the vellum. Repeat till you cover the entire piece of the vellum. You do NOT want to have any drops of glue, sponge the glue very light and smooth. Then press your glued vellum onto your project. Yes, that simple and no glue will show. I suggest cutting the stamping sponge in fourth. All is shown in the video.
See this close up picture, the vellum is very clear and we surely can not see the glue streak or marks.

- Blackberry Bliss or Poppy Parade 5¼ x 4
- Peaceful Poppies 5 x 3¾, 5½ x ¾ inside
- Vellum 1½ x 3¾
Two Color Overlay Emboss
Another tip that I share in the video is how to stamp in 2 color ink and emboss on the vellum. It is very simple. Yes, you can emboss with our water-based ink. I stamped the light color first (Poppy Parade) then stamp the second greeting with darker color ink (Blackberry Bliss) overlay on the first greeting. Apply your clear embossing powder and heat emboss. Voila, you have your 2 tones color overlay and it is embossed.
Glitter Enamels Dots
The glitter enamel dots don’t come in the blackberry bliss or the poppy parade. Well, the easy solution is to color the Gorgeous Grape enamel dots with the Dark Blackberry Bliss and the Melon Mambo with Dark Poppy Parade stampin’ Blends. A simple solution to get the glitter enamel dots the color you need to match your projects.
This video has lots of tips for your paper crafting. Trust me it is worth 7 minutes of your time!
