Simply Saturday Vellum

Another week has passed  and we hope that you have been inspired and you will use your vellum a bit more now... or give it a go if you have not tried to use it yet.
Today, Gay has made a couple of beautiful samples for you: candle holders (love those!!) and a lovely card.
Can't wait to read your thoughts about Gay's samples and about the vellum week in general.

I embossed the vellum and swiped over with Brilliance Moonlight White, when it was dry I stamped with Tim Holtz text stamp. 

The perfect adhesive to attach them is the Quicky Glue pen. I used my water spritzer to form the cylinder and adhered the vellum to itself with super sticky tape.
The embellishment is a Spell binders die cut out in Vellum and rubbed with Brilliance Cosmic Copper. 

The whole cylinder will be adhered to the candle lamp with a glue dot. 

My battery operated candle lamps are a little run down I think I need some new ones!

I used
Dreamweaver stencil, Damask
Brilliance inks in Cosmic Copper and Moonlight White
Spellbinders dies, Ironwork motifs
Tim Holtz Stamps French Marketplace

I die cut the flowers and the flourish and the petal shapes cut from the flowers I layered back onto the flowers to give them a little interest, black centres and a sentiment to finish. 
The glue pen just doesn't show through.

I used
Spellbinders Morocan Motifs and Nestabilities, Classic Circles Small.
Tim Holtz, Elegant flourishes
Sentiment by Crafty Secrets, Sweet Kids

  1. Fabulous inspiration from Gay today and the rest of the week has been great ........ as always. This candle display is stunning and would make the perfect centerpiece to any dinner table.

  2. The candle holders are a lovely idea & so seasonal now that the nights are drawing in. I love the simplicity of the embellishment on it that allows the light to shine through.

  3. I love, love, love the candle screens..gorgeous! AND I never knew you could get battery candles! This would be ideal with a young child around! Your card is simply gorgeous retro and pretty! Bravo and TFS!

  4. What a lovely project. Those vellum candles are fantastic and I love the flowers, so novel. Thanks for the glue tip. Vellum is so tricky to stick without it showing.

  5. Candle covers are such a lovely idea but I'd need some battery ones first! Great use for vellum.

  6. It's really lovely and fantastic idea. Thanks also for saying well the way of doing it...have a nice week-end. xx

  7. Love those candles, will try to make some for my Christmas table.
