Ellen Hutson Bloghop: How to stamp on vellum – with dies!


Welcome to the Spring 2015 Essentials by Ellen Release BlogHop! I’m so happy to be a part of it….I’m so proud of my friends Julie Ebersole and Ellen Hutson for taking the leap into producing more awesome products to help our wallets stay lean! Today for my hop cards, I want to show you how to stamp on vellum – with dies!


How to stamp on vellum with dies

When I received the new release stamps and dies from Ellen Hutson, my mind went right away to big bold floral cards. And oddly – to pink and purple!? (Who has taken over this body?) And also to the vellum that Ellen makes, too – it’s nice and thick, makes inks look even softer from the back, and since in my card shared in their newsletter didn’t have a video companion, I wanted you to see the vellum in motion. Thus, stamping with dies was born for my cards! Watch the video below, or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube!

These cards were helped along by the Craft Assistant and Magnetic Material of course…I’ve shown the use of them with airbrushing, but they made all the difference in holding the paper steady so I didn’t get fingerprints or grease on the paper. It really is amazing what you can do with these products when it comes to learning how to stamp on vellum!


The bloghop fun begins in the CLASSroom and there is also a Grand Giveaway! To enter, be sure to leave a comment there, and at every stop along the hop by May 5th!  Winners will be announced May 8th.

I am the lucky one to give away the Amazing Women stamp set! WOOHOO! Since my cards are intended for amazing women in your life, write a comment in the form of a quick note “to” an amazing woman in your life, then go email or text her that comment. (Why not, right? We really do need to encourage each other more!)


Keep hopping!

Wasn’t that fun? Once  you learn how to stamp on vellum with dies, you can make a whole sheet to get a bunch of cards out of it! I love when multi-use takes the cost out of our craft supplies.

I hope she knew she was very loved.

Thanks so much, Mama!
