Embossed Image Vellum Card using Tres Jolie Mixed Media November kit.

 Hello everyone. I am back and I am on a roll with making mixed media inspired cards this month.  I am back with my third card where I focused on using the Vellum and the Embossing Powders that came in this month's kit to create the card. 


First I stamped with Embossing Ink on the Vellum. Be sure to wipe off the excess powder before you take the heat gun to it. I just love the way this gold embossing powder pops.  



Then I colored the back side of the vellum with distress oxides inks. I made another set off camera to create a 3D type of effect. 


I trimmed out the second flower set and glue it down onto the vellum. 

Finally, I hit it with my favorite splatter technique and the card is done.

Tres Jolie Mixed Media Alcohol Ink, Vellum, Gilding Flakes and Embossing

 Welcome back everyone. Liv here and I am on a roll making cards this month. Sometimes, I just have to follow what inspires me and I think this month's Mixed Media kit is perfect to make some really unique cards.  


So first up, I pulled out some of the Yupo papers from my stash to use with the Alcohol Inks. I went ahead and combined the colors to create the background for the card. 

Now alcohol inks can dry pretty fast so before it was fully dry, I took out my gilded flakes and spread it to stick to the tacky parts of the ink. I brushed off the excess and love the gold residue it left on the project. 

Next I trimmed the paper down and placed it into one of my Embossing folders...I know you have some of those in your stash so pull them out and dust them off. 

I used some ink  and more alcohol ink to make the embossed area

Once I was done with that, I used one of the gorgeous chipboard pieces made at Tres Jolie to ink up and emboss in a matching gold color

Then I assembled the card all together. I did layer the embossed panel onto the vellum and then attached it all to a card base. 

I hope everyone enjoyed this project. My video also goes through the sets of making a grungy but beautiful Mixed Media and Fall inspired card.

Tres Jolie Mixed Media Alcohol Ink and Vellum Fall Theme Card

 Welcome back everyone. Liv here and I am loving the November collection. Fall is my favorite time of the year.  For this project i am using items from the Mixed Media kit to create a card. 

Now you can definitely use alcohol inks on vellum but it very important that you tape it down and allow it to fully dry before you starting using it.  

I tape it down I just use washi tape and it holds very well. Next go ahead and apply the alcohol inks. I so love fall colors and this month's alcohol inks set is perfect for that. 

Once I let it dry for about 24 hours, I then went back and used some Spellbinders dies I have recently gotten and cut out multiple leaves. 

Then I glue them down on a white card base using Art Glitter glue. Once they were glued down I had to add some splatters cause it was just too much white for me. 

And the final step was to add the sentiment and then add some Nuvo drops. 

And here is my finished card.
