Vellum Balloons – Video

by jenniferrzasa

Good morning…Jen here!  The new Altenew inks produce clean and crisp impressions on paper and cardstock – amazing!  But since they are water-based, they take on a new look when stamped on vellum.

To see how I made this ethereal birthday card (and for an introduction to our line of inks), please watch the video at the end of this post!

This card turned out fantastic. i’m eager to get my hands on your inks. By what I’ve been seeing they may become my new favorite inks. If that becomes the case, I’ll be pestering you for more colors!

Love the idea for stamping on both sides of the vellum! What a great card! My color wants/needs for your ink would be a family of blues, and a family of purples. I love to stamp hydrangeas, and I think your inks would be great for that. Wouldn’t your vellum technique look fabulous with hydrangeas? I’ve ordered two of the cube families, and I can’t wait until they get here. Thanks for sharing.

This is a great card: fun and unfussy!

I mentioned ink colours elsewhere before I saw this article, but I’ll repeat them here too: I’d love to see blues, purples and teals (and maybe some neutrals, e.g. greys and taupes). I’m definitely a “cool colours” person.

I’m thrilled you offer the crisp inks in cubes! I immediately ordered the three sets that are currently available. And I eagerly await additional colors and cube sets. Thanks again for making the new ink available in cube sets! 😀

Awesome card! Love the look you got with the new inks on vellum. Do the inks work well with Copics, especially the black?

I am using your inks and this exact same stamp set and following right along with the video. I’m not sure if I am pressing too hard butbon a few of the balloons, the outline has a dark ring around the edge. I’m not sure if I’m pressing too hard or not? I think it will take some practice but I think I’ll get there…..
