Frosty Friends on Vellum

I saw this technique last year, and I have been wanting to try it ever since.  I finally had vellum and a cute snowman stamp to try it out with.  It's a pretty fun technique, and even makes your snowmen a little puffy.....although, it is hard to tell in the picture.

  • Frosty Friends Stamp set
  • Four the Holiday stamp set (retired)
  • Staz On Jet Black ink
  • Stampin' Write™markers - Pumpkin Pie, Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Real Red
  • Cherry Cobbler classic ink
  • Vellum card stock
  • Cherry Cobbler card stock
  • Silver Glimmer paper
  • Red Glimmer paper
  • Stylus
  • Snowflake punch (retired)
  • 1/2" Circle punch
  • 1" Square punch
  • Snow Burst textured impressions embossing folder (retired)
  • Big Shot
  • Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Crystal Glaze
  • Glue dots
Baker's Tips:
  • Stamp your image on a piece of vellum with Staz on ink.  Let dry, or use heat tool to speed up drying.
  • Flip your image over and use a stylus on the back side of the vellum on the areas that you want to turn white.  You will need to do this on some type of foam/rubber mat, such as a mouse pad.
  • Use the markers on the back of the vellum as well.  It is less likely to smear.
  • To adhere the vellum, use a very tiny drop of crystal effects near one of the corners of the paper you are going to adhere the vellum on to.  Place the vellum down and gently spread out with your finger.  Do this in all four corners, add more along the edges as needed.  Be sure to place the drop far enough in from the edge, so the adhesive doesn't ooze out when you spread it out.  A little goes a long way.
