Anything Goes SSI Blog Hop

Welcome to July's SSI Blog Hop.  We have a wonderful variety of projects for you today because ANYTHING GOES with this Blog Hop!  Today I am featuring projects using our fabulous white vellum.  This specialty paper can add a fun and elegant touch to any project and you can use it in so many ways.  

As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left stop number 10 on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog Hop - Jennifer at Happy 2 Scrap 4 Life. If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn't work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.

First up I have an easy way to use vellum, layer it over a particularly busy piece of DSP to make a bold pattern a little more subtle.  

Here I used a piece of DSP from the Pretty Petals stack, layered on the vellum and added the large butterfly from the Butterfly Thinlits.  Of course I needed to add pearl to the body.  The sentiment comes from the And Many More stamp set.

Next up I tried my hand at embossing a piece of vellum.

My color palette here is Bermuda Bay, Tangerine Tango and Smoky Slate.  I embossed the vellum with the Boho Chic embossing folder and used the Watercolor Words set for the flowers and sentiment.  I added a little bit of Bermuda Bay thick twine under the sentiment.  I really do love how the vellum looks embossed!

Next up I used a small piece of vellum and heat embossed a sentiment on it.

Here I used some Pacific Point card stock and a piece of DSP from the Pretty Petals stack.  The sentiment comes from Friendly Wishes.  And how about that cute flower?  I was inspired by my fellow design team member Carrie!  I added an antique brad to the center of my Mint Macaron flower!

And finally I have little bits of vellum used from punches.

Apparently I was in a butterfly mood.  The DSP is also from Pretty Petals and its layered on Mint Macaron and Calypso Coral.  The sentiment is from Butterfly Basics and I added the net stamp in Mint Macaron over the Pacific Point text.  I punched the butterflies in card stock and vellum and then layered them and finished them off with some rhinestones!

Thanks so much for looking at my projects!  If you don't have any vellum, now you see a few cool ways to use it.  And if you have it, what are you waiting for?  Time to use it to add a special touch to your creations!  

Up next is Diana at Stampin Fun with Diana.  I can't wait to see what she has in store for us.
