like to do all my die cutting, shaping and coloring first. TIP: Use an antistatic pad to wipe your vellum
and cardstock first before stamping, it creates a static free environment so
that only your stamped image is embossed. When using a heat gun, don’t get too close to
your vellum or cardstock or it will get a brown tinge.
the Garden’s Edge Coneflower stamp set, stamp the row of Coneflowers on white
cardstock using your White Versacolor Ink, then cover completely in white
embossing powder, shake of the excess and heat with your heat gun.I have colored these images using Gelatos.
Gelatos are a water-soluble crayon which is great for blending and shading
over heat embossed images. Firstly, just scribble the desired colors over the
image, green for the stems, butter cream for the flower petals and Mango for
the flower centers and now you are just going to rub it in with your fingers
until blended and smooth, for the highlight add Mango to the bottom of the
flower petal and now rub in with your fingers to blend. When you are happy
with your shading use a cloth to rub of the excess color and it will leave
the white embossed stamp more visible. If you use a damp cloth your color
will be less vibrant, just experiment with your coloring technique.Highlight the flowers centers using the
Pearlescent Chocolate ink very lightly.
the Butterfly Dreams Border Stamp set stamp on vellum using your White
Versacolor Ink, then cover completely in white embossing powder, shake of the
excess and heat with your heat gun.
Using your Blossoming
Coneflower and Backyard Blossoms Stamp sets, stamp your flowers using Archival
Black Ink, I have only stamped the top of the flowers as we will only be using
this section. Color the flowers using your Wilted Violet ink using your Stack
and Store daubers. Trim of the flower centers you will only be using the
petals. Spray the petals with your mini mister and shape using your Deluxe
Flower Shaping Tool Kit.
Cut your card base using the white cardstock 10”
x 6 5/8”. Fold your card in half, I like to run a bone folder over the spine of
the card to give it a clean finish. Using the selected Patterned cardstock from
the Backyard Blossoms Paper Pad, cut your front mat 6 ½” x 4 7/8”, die cut the
Fleur Border Basics Die down the right-hand side.Using the coordinating decorative border die
select the purple contrasting cardstock from the paper pad and die cut 1
matching border. Using the Fleur Border Basics die, die cut the right hand front
side to match your patterned cardstock. I have adhered the decorative border to
the back of the front mat and then adhered it to the card front (this conceals
the border between the layers for a neater effect on the inside of your
card).Trim the selected cardstock from
the Backyard Blossoms Paper Collection 6 1/2” x 4 7/8” for the inside mat. Adhere
the insert mat.
I have trimmed the Butterfly border
into single butterflies, trim them as pictured or play around with where the
flourish sections sit. Adhere the
butterflies with adhesive only down the center of the butterflies so the
wings can be folded up. Adhere your petals over the flowers. Trim down the
row of Coneflowers into single flowers and adhere as desired or as pictured.
Highlight the purple flowers using the Nuvo Aqua Flow Glitter pen. Highlight
the flowers centers and the Butterflies using the stickles.
