Default Need Adhesive for Vellum

I came here at first to ask what brand you use, because I know some shows and some does not. But then I went to my favorite supply sites and couldn't find any brand at all.

So now vellum is "out of style"? My one remaining roll is losing the adhesive ability, probably because it's about 10 years old, so I need more. Please advise if you know where to get some of the brand you like to use.
Thanks,
Bahb

I just use mini glue dots and hide them behind a card element.

Who says vellum is out of style? It's excellent to use with alcohol inks. I get mine at the office supply stores but it's not self-adhesive. I'm referring to the semi-transparent sheets, but maybe you mean the clear acrylic?

I've seen vellum attached with the also "out of style" eyelets and they look great!

If it fits your card design, it can be attached with washi tape.

Or try wrapping it to the back of a piece of cardstock and taping on the back.

Or stitch it on.

And kind of like Lydia said, if you've stamped and embossed the vellum then colored the back, a glue dot behind those colored areas works well.

I'm seeing SO much more vellum being used on cards recently. Here's a search in the gallery: vellum - Homemade Cards, Rubber Stamp Art, & Paper Crafts - Splitcoaststampers.com

I used spray adhesive for my vellum on wedding invitations. Came out perfect.

I bought what was called vellum adhesive and found that you could still see it behind the vellum so stopped using it. I love using vellum so I usually dot small amounts of glossy accents on areas like where I have stamped and the line is thick enough or under areas that will be covered with embellishments etc. find it stays put very well.

Vellum has never been out of style in my book! If you're using it as a panel on the front of your card, cut it an extra inch long or wide (however it's going to be oriented); tape or glue that extra inch to the back of your card.

Have you tried Ranger Multi Medium Matte? I just tried it with both light-weight and heavy-weight vellum; it's virtually invisible. I applied the medium with one of the Fineline Aoolicators, which puts down TINY dots, which I think is one of the secrets, and the other is that this adhesive is matte and not glossy.

I'm so glad you asked this question, because I hadn't tried this on vellum; great to find out it worked!

I'm wanting to use vellum sheets for a recipe book with designer paper behind. Do you know if spray adhesive yellows over time; or any type glue to adhere vellum recipe to designer paper, turns yellow? I find that adhesive 'glue dots' let loose over t ime.

Thinking outside of the box, you might stitch the vellum to the DP with a sewing machine. It would be quick, quirky cool and no worry about adhesive doing weird things. It would also be durable, which in a recipe book that is handled frequently would be a real plus.

Here is a trick I learned from Susan Levassuer of Wow NOLA Creations- pour some white liquid glue like Tombow Multi into a small container; dip a sponge into it; lightly tap sponge on back of vellum to apply liquid glue; adhere vellum

The glue dries clear and the vellum holds well.

Susan uses this method a lot and she makes beautiful, easy-to-follow projects. Here is her blog:

Depending on the vellum, sewing on it may cause it to tear along the stitching. It tend to be stiff but brittle in some ways and the holes give it a perforated effect. (hope this makes sense)

I use spray adhesive on vellum. No lines show.

I discovered last week that if you use something like the Stick It sheets on the back, you get no visible clue on the front, as long as your card base is light, or white. This is vellum onto a pale blue card base.Doesn't work so well on darker cardstock.

You are absolutely right! I forgot to addthat stitches need to be large (long), to avoid cutting the vellum. Small stitches will definitely cause the vellum to crack at the stitch line. Thanks for catching this!

The new Sticky Specks sheets work very well with vellum, they are saying. I have not tried it yet, but here is a link to the product:
