I was really sweating over this topic and today I finally embossed some vellum and tried 3D Crystal Lacquer. I applied it mainly to colored portions of the sheet, but along edges and corners and I really cannot see any of the adhesive {grin}. Thank you everyone for your wealth of experience!!!

I've decided vellum isn't worth bothering with. Same with transparencies. Except I still have a large ziplock bag of pretty transparencies. I don't want to throw them out, but they are of no use to me. Maybe I'll donate them to the thrift store.

I don't know why some smart manufacturer doesn't just make vellum products/transparencies with an adhesive built-in or already attached. Now THAT I would be all over.

I understand the frustration Angie.

This was my first time using vellum, and I tell you - I thought I would seriously break out in hives. But I thought, really? Am I this afraid of paper? Nah - the worst that can happen is that I throw it away from high levels of ugliness.

But if you look at how the 3d Crystal Lacquer (I am sure any super clear thin glue will do the same) remains invisible, maybe you won't be so aggravated by this.

I used it nillly-willy all over: I thin lined the edges of the sheet, put globs behind the flowers, and pressed it down using a tissue to wipe up the goopy squish-out parts. It dried fast and I still cannot see the adhesive.

I colored the back or de-bossed areas with Copic markers and just used a blender pen to remove excess. If you decide to try again, here's to you ♥

Some time back I asked for suggestions to glue parchment to make little bags and reported on what I tried and what worked or parchment freezer bags and waxed paper. I was trying to make bags similar to the glassine ones and parchment came the closest. Then someone posted that to glue parchment or vellum you use the same product as used for pergamano. Sorry can not recall the name but I will look for these glue dots for adhering to cards. Thanks ladies.

I found Vellum tape! Tombow now has it, and they also have refills which I picked up at my LSS.

Default Vellum adhesive

I use spray adhesive from Michael's. It's great for adhering vellum to cardstock.

This is my re-post from another thread: I just watched a video from StampTV (older one) where she white embosses some skeleton leaves on vellum, then used an full piece of silhouette double sided tape on the back (sheet was same size as the vellum) it worked great but I am not sure I would use all 8 sheets in the package if I were to buy it. The vellum tape I purchased years ago did not work as well. Does anyone know where to get the thicker vellum like SU used to sell? they had 2 thicknesses.

. I don't know what mm thickness you're looking for, but Ellen Hutson sells vellum; in my opinion, it's as nice as any.

Ginny, I know it has been awhile since your post, but if you have not found a source for your vellum, Marcos Paper has three different weights. They also have colors and envelopes. I looked for adhesive and they have a spray that is recommended also. Hope this helps!

I found something called Perga glue... never tried it, so I don't know if it's any good.

Another way is to cut the vellum about an inch longer..*fold* the top and bottom over the edge of the project....the 1/2 inch part can be glued and not seen once the vellum is attached to the card stock.

If not clear....I'm sorry, having trouble explaining, but will try a different way if wanted LOL

I saw a video by Connie Stewart where she lightly sponged Tombow Mono all over the back of the vellum and she said the glue didn't show.

Great idea. One I'd not heard of in my 18 or so years of being a card maker. I still like the one Connie Stewart shared on one of her Tuesday you tube videos the best.

I liked Connie's Stewart's idea as well but when I tried it, I found that the vellum really curled and I had a difficult time getting it centered on the CS, which was cut larger than the vellum piece. I also had a hard time keeping the piece I was sponging in one spot on my mat and wound up with extra glue on the front of my vellum piece.

I think I need more practice because Connie makes it look so effortless.

I run the vellum through my Xyron. It works perfectly.

Wink Xyron on transparencies

I am wondering if I bought a Xyron machine, larger than the X, could i run a transparency phrase through that and have the adhesive be totally covering my item and totally invisible?

I tried it using a strip of acetate because I didn't have a transparency. You can see the edges of the acetate, but it didn't affect the color of what was underneath at all. I stuck it on some DP.

Printer transparencies usually have a rough side, don't they? That in itself might be visible. But I would say that if you hold the piece on top of whatever you want to attach it to, then what you see is what you'll get using a Xyron.

Maybe I should clarify: the acetate didn't "disappear". It's glossy, so you can see that.

Just wanted to fully disclose before you went and bought a Xyron. Although I can't see ever regretting getting a Xyron. I have the sticker size (2.5 inch) and the 500 (5 inch). The refills aren't cheap, but I don't use it except when it's the best solution, and when it is, there's nothing better. As I said, it entirely solved my vellum adhesive problems.

On this card, the blue vellum doily behind the focal image was attached using my Xyron:

I don't have any problems with vellum adhesive. Xyron is my answer. Love using my Xyron 5" creative Station Lite for vellum. You can buy a 3" or 5" refill for it. amazon and hsn have good prices.
