Highlighted Saran Wrap Technique Video


HAPPY SATURDAY!!!  It's a gorgeous day here in Wisconsin so I'm getting my video loaded early so I can spend my day outside!!!

Here's a super easy technique that produces a super cool wow!!!  I'm calling it Highlighted Saran Wrap...I'm using saran wrap to create a background and then going back with a little bolder color to highlight my stamped images.  This card is a lot more spectacular in real life - REALLY - the photos just don't do it.

Sneak Peek!!!

I'm playing this morning...when I should be making my Christmas gifts....but if you were here know that my preorder from the Sale-A-Bration Mini and Occasions Mini Catalogs came yesterday!!!!  And I just had to do a little playing - right???

This is one of the stamp sets you can get free in January - HOLY COW!!!  It's called Bliss and comes with 5 beautiful images.  I immediately thought "wedding!"  I saw a card made by fellow demonstrator Gretchen this morning with a vellum overlay and the light bulb came on.  Here's my vellum overlay card:

TIPS:  The first time I tried to stamp "BLISS" on the vellum - I forgot that vellum is non-porous - meaning that the ink has no way to be absorbed - and of course stuck my finger right in it and smeared it everywhere.  I always use StazOn ink on vellum - but I really wanted to stay with my color theme and use Rich I stamped my image in the ink and then embossed it with clear embossing powder - TA DA!  When stamping on vellum - you can use regular Classic Ink (as opposed to a Craft (pigment) ink that would normally be used for embossing) because it stays wet - won't absorb into the paper.  Perfect for embossing on vellum.  The other tip I want to share - this is Vellum Cardstock - it's heavier - a better choice for the embossing folder.


I love the "peek-a-boo" feature of using vellum.  I stamped my greeting on the vellum and then stamped the beautiful swirly image on the cardstock underneath.  It's that soft look under the vellum that gives your card a look of elegance.

I also wanted the inside of my card to carryover the "elegance" of a wedding card.  I used the Full of Life stamp set - one of my favorite greetings for weddings - and embellished it with a string of our Pearl Jewels - how pretty!  When I stamped the swirly image with Soft Suede ink, I stamped off once before stamping the inside of my card.


Here's a close-up of the pearls.


One more thing...I almost forgot about the little Mr. & Mrs. tag...what a wonderful accent to any card.  These images come from the Tiny Tags stamp set - a perfect embellishment!  I stamped off with the swirly image, stamped it on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock, stamped the greeting over top and then punched it. The tag is adhered to the ribbon with a Mini Glue Dot.
