Just Emboss It with Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration

Just Emboss It...
Our inkspiration today over at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration is to emboss on a card.  I decided to use heat embossing.  I am not exactly sure how I feel about this card... I really like how it looks like the water.  I stamped and embossed on Stampin' Up! vellum.  

Are you wondering how I made the coral sparkly?  I embossed it using the heat and stick powder (instead of regular embossing powder) and then added Stampin' Glitter.  I set the glitter using my heat tool.  I also embossed the seashell (Costal Cabana), the seahorse (Crushed Curry) and the fish (Metallic Silver).
I made sure to stamp the inside of the card as well as line the envelope using the High Tide Designer Series Paper.  It's hard to tell but I also used this same paper underneath the vellum layer.  Check out the supplies at the end of this post!

Come back tomorrow for my individual post!  You are going to LOVE the tutorial!

Such a cool idea to emboss onto vellum. It DOES look like water! Great job, I'll have to give that a try!

I have been into the vellum lately since I just ordered some... I am pleased with how it turned out! Definitely a stretch for me!
