Twelve Days of Christmas Day 7: Heat Embossing Vellum

Happy Saturday dear friends!! I'm a little bit behind as I didn't feel well last week, but the Twelve Days of Christmas continues!  Today's post was inspired by PTI's Make it Monday 144: Heat Embossing Vellum. I made two card as I just had to try to emboss the City Scene Stamps like the amazing Melissa Phillips did and of course I had to do a take in my own style.  I stamped the beautiful bells from PTI's Bells and Boughs onto the vellum in Versamark ink and then sprinkled the bells with Pink Embossing Powder and then I embossed the bells once more with Versamark and then sprinkled with gold embossing powder.  How fun to have two toned embossed bells!!


Just in case you haven't noticed, gold is my "go to" color this year! Everything is coming up golden!!  I used some old October Afternoon papers for the card base along with some scraps of Pink Paislee's Snow Village to embellish. 
 In the next card I used a scrap of Webster's Pages papers for the card base.  I heat embossed the village on vellum and I'm really loving the colors.  I wish the Zing and Ranger embossing powder was a little finer grained, but I'm loving the color choices, so I won't complain too much!!  Both cards use non traditional colors for Christmas Cards and I'm loving it!!
I'm going to have to play around with the City Stamps a little more.  There will be so many different possibilities with those stamps!!

 Supplies Used:
Papertrey Ink City Scene Stamps and Dies
Papertrey Ink Bells and Boughs Stamps and Dies
Papertrey Ink Rustic Wreath Die
Papertrey Ink Stamper's Select White, Gold Shimmer and Vellum Cardstock
Zing Blush Embossing Powder
Ranger Red Pepper Embossing Powder
Fine Gold and White Embossing Powder
Simply Chartreuse Felt
October Afternoon and Pink Paislee Papers and embellies from my stash

Thanks for stopping by and I will see you throughout the next several days for the rest of the Twelve Days of Christmas Series!!

I just love non traditional Christmas colors. These two cards are stunning! The bells with the joy and wreath is my fav ...such a beautiful layout. But I also like the paper you used with the cityscape!

Kristii, both are beautiful, and fun scenes on the vellum, but just loving the bells framed with Rustic Wreath. Haven't put it away since it came. Truly a versatile stamp and die! Love your extra dimension with the fir sprigs!
