There are lots of floral “clump” stamps out there….and I’ve wanted to do a video like this for a while, with a way to make a pattern of flowers that will be an overall pattern without having to constantly clean the stamp and line it up etc. It hit me – vellum, and the MISTI!
Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.
It’s a clean and simple card with LOTS of love poured into it….fully ready for the next sad occasion in need of a card.
And one pencil. Yep, just one color!

Thank you for this video tutorial Sandy, I have been trying to use Vellum more in my card designs because I find it beautiful to look at but I don’t find it easy to think of ways for it to be used. I will be trying this out in a future project definitely. :O)
So pretty, Sandy! I’ve never tried colored pencil on vellum. It’s a very elegant effect.
Love this card! Thanks for the tips for doing the all over pattern and for the knot! Stamping the design on cardstock then using it to align the stamp for the all over background pattern is so simple and yet really brilliant! I can hardly wait to give this a try. I’ll have to get out all my flower bunch stamps to see which ones with work with this technique.
Love this technique and can’t wait to try it. This would also make an elegant wedding or birthday card!
This is beautiful, Sandy. I really like the simplicity and elegance of this card. I try to do the same and make sympathy cards ahead of when I actually need one. It is easier that way.
Its gorgeous Sandy, I love that you did the colouring pencil in between the open spaces, that a great idea. I never make my sympathie cards in advance, I try to make the card that is representative of the deceased. But I think this is a great example of what I can do with flowers.
Gorgeous vellum creation!
you make this look so easy!! I love all your tutorials, even if I don’t comment regularly.
Sandy, I love this card! And, it looks like you are totally color-coordinated with it , your nails and shirt. I am a little unclear – did the stamped and colored side go down onto the cardstock? I can’t wait to try this technique and thanks for the ribbon tip, too (I spend far too much $$$ on non-machinable cards). You continue to amaze – thanks!
Face down—-that helps the embossing not stick to the art. 😉
I’m a total weirdo ! Does not matter when I make these cards or who for, I end up crying. I just end up thinking of the last time I needed one and no matter how sunny the day, how up beat the music, the tears roll. But I do really like the vellum idea you have shown us and all the advise given, I am going to try that as the have all the products.x so I’m off to cry then, thanks x
This is a real stunner Sandy. I am one of those weirdo’s who ‘likes’ making sympathy cards. NOT the occasion itself but because of the challenge to make something meaningful and elegant. With that said, I make them ahead (now!) to have on hand for when the need arises and I know then that it is something I am comfortable presenting.
Thanks so much for sharing this as it is so beautiful and a great idea as well.
You hit the nail on the head this morning. I hate making sympathy cards – because it’s always so sad. And I also have a “clump of flowers” stamp that’s never seen ink because I always look at it, and it just looks like way too much work! Ahem – I also tend to leave the vellum in the package – go fig! This idea should take care of a whole bunch of my stamping gremlins! Thank you again, for all you do – and for knowing us so well!
