Stamp Off: Inked Textured Embossing Folders

Welcome to another Stamp Off Challenge with
Buffy, Susan and Jackie.

Our challenge today is a technique; using an inked
Textured Embossing Folder on a card.  This is a lovely,
alternative way to use these folders.  You can run the inked
folder through the big shot, or simply squeeze it to apply
the ink to paper.
 For my challenge card, I inked the Decorative Dots Textured Embossing Folder (p 176) with Whisper White Craft ink (p 163)
and used Vellum.  I also stamped the leaves image
from Awesomely Artistic (p 125) with White Stazon, on to
a second layer of Vellum.  Layering those two sheets of vellum
yielded a neat texture.
This is a photo of the two layers, before they were placed
on the card.  I layered Pool Party behind the velum sheets
to pop the white inks.  The Wetlands (p 116) sentiment was
cut out with the Large Oval Punch (p 165).   The 1" Dotted
Tip Top Taupe ribbon was added as the finishing touch,
with the card then layered on to Tip Top Taupe.
Now please hop on over to check out the creative ideas
for your Textured Embossing Folders 
offered by Buffy and Susan!

Beautiful card, Jackie. I always forget about Vellum. I'll have to get some out and try it.

This is definitely a "WOW" card, Jackie. I love how you layered the stamped vellum with the "stamp-bossed" vellum. (Yeah, that's really not a word, but...) This is so soft and pretty. Now I'm going to pull out that vellum that's hiding on the shelf.

This is so neat Jackie. Now I know what I can do next with my vellum. The two layers idea is inspired. Lovely, lovely, lovely!
