Helmar Blog Hop: Working with Vellum

Hi there! I hope you are enjoying the Helmar/Pink Paislee blog hop this week! Today is the final day. I have a couple of cards for you today using Pink Paislee’s Luxe line with Helmar’s Tape Runner and Zap Dots adhesives.

Let me share a few tips!

On the Happy Day card, I used the polkadot paper from the Luxe line and cut it so that the dots were more on the bottom of the card, so I could have white space for a title. The Luxe copper alphas are SO pretty and shiny! I added a chipboard arrow and black arrow rub on from the line and finished with a “happy” stamp from my stash. The vellum stars were adhered with Helmars Zap Dots. The dots do show through the vellum a bit, but I love how it looks as if the stars have little centers. The Zap Dots were really easy to use, loved them!

Check out all that shimmer! Metallics are so hot right now!

On the WOW card, I added more Luxe chipboard arrows, copper alphas and black star rub ons over the background paper. They go on very smoothly. I adhered a strip of the Luxe chevron paper to the top with Helmar’s Tape Runner.

The Luxe line is really great for creating cards that look so high end and boutique-ish!
