Kinderstampo's 34 Birthday Balloons and Counting


HaPPy BiRtHdAY JESS !!! I hope that this is one of your best years ever !!!! I am so blessed to have had met you and very honored to be part of this birthday blog hop. Anyone getting here from Marilyn at   http://www.facebook.com/l/ddd99XFTg_z6ZxfTq_Hc6tjbFcA;littlethingmemoryartist.blogspot.com/" target="_blank">Enjoying the Little Things

 is on the right track. If you just happened to drop by my blog to pay me a visit and want to start at the beginning of the hop then click on here. I also want to wish lovely Angelica Suarez the best of birthdays also !!!
You have no idea what fun it was to make this card and what wonderful memories it brought back. Vellum or parchment paper cards are a common style of cards in Spanish speaking countries. It is mostly know as "Tarjeteria Espanola" (cardmaking from Spain). It requires a lot of work and detail. For this card I mixed vellum's "Tarjeteria Espanola" techniques but, also added some regular cardstock.

  • From a pattern or clip art, trace the chosen shape onto the vellum paper. White or sepia ink are the ones generally used for tracing.
  • All these details are done on the back of the image:
    • On the back of the vellum where the image was traced, color in the image using markers, chalks, color pencils, etc.
    • Use the appropiate tool to emboss the image in the areas where it is needed like petals, ribbon and "swiss dots" on fan.
    • with piercing tools, add "embroidery" effect.
  • With piercing tool, pierce around the image and inside the bow loops.
                                                                                           

  • Tear away the excess vellum paper by pulling away through the tiny holes you pierced.
    • Shown is a close up of how the image looks once it has been separated from the vellum.
  •  Embellish fan as your little heart desires. I added Swarovsky Crystals, pearls and a tiny rose at the center of the bow.
  • Insert a folded piece of cardstock inside the vellum card.
    • Make a border with Martha Stewart border punch.
    • Stamp sentiment.



Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed my project. Now, it's time to hop on to Patti  at A Scraping Time

  2. Lovin this! A while back I was looking for a birthday card for a friend. I had zero luck finding what I was looking for. I told a group of friends about this problem one night while we were having a few drinks. We proceeded to get smashed and make up a bunch of greeting cards we found funny. I had been writing down the cards we made up and the next morning I read them. Much to my surprise the cards were still funny even when sober.

  67. This is just so lovely! I remember, as a child, my grandmother had a card with what I now know as velum in the frame of her mirror on her dresser. I hadn't thought of this in years--thank you so much for bringing this back to me. I'm going to try to make one of these for my mother for her birthday, although I know it'll take many cards before I could make one as beautiful as yours. I've been a follower for a while--I love coming here to poke around and enjoy your hidden treasures. You can find me at ksjennings at gmail dot com and/or http://karelj.blogspot.com
