Happy Sunday lovely peoples! When I was designing my Elias Week In The Life Minibook, I wanted to add both stamping and printing on vellum. This presented a problem since vellum is very water resistant.....so I decided to look it up, and here is what I learned.
(Both the index tab inserts above are stamped on vellum.)
Supplies for stamping on vellum:
- Heating tool
- Ink pad
Step 1 >>> Add ink to your stamp.
Step 2 >>> Stamp onto vellum.
Step 3 >>> Use your heating tool to dry the ink. You will probably notice that the ink color will lighten slightly once it is dry. All done!
Now you can trim your vellum and add it to your project.
Below is the Arrows Transparency that I printed onto inkjet transparency film with my printer and used to make my Handmade Page Protector. I samped the *I love this* onto gold vellum to insert into the index tab attached.
And here is the example of my Handmade Page Protector which you will learn to make in my 10 page PDF. Anyone who purchases a product from my Blume and Grow Market will also get said tuturial as a bonus :D
OK, now for printing on vellum. It is the same idea. Basically just use your heating tool to dry the ink once you've run your vellum through your printer or typewriter, etc.... I wanted to learn how to print on vellum so I could add the journaling for my Elias Week In The Life Minibook. And here's an example of how it turned out. You can see the rest of my minibook pages here and here. Have fun with this new technique!
