Hello friends! Michelle here today with a simple floral vellum card using the beautiful Kindness Stamp Set and coordinating die, also digging into my neglected paper stash.
Step 1: Stamp and heat emboss in black the large flower on vellum. Ensure that your heat embossing tool is heated really well before going to the vellum and keep the heat constantly moving to try and minimize any warping of the vellum.
Step 2: Colour the image using alcohol markers on the back side of the vellum to avoid any possible damage to the nibs of the markers from the heat embossing. This will mute the colours a bit, so use brighter than normal if you want.
Step 3: Heat emboss on white cardstock the sentiment using the same black embossing powder, to keep the look cohesive and cut out using the coordinating die.
Step 4: I picked out a black and white patterned paper from my stash, to mount the floral panel on…..I have so much of it, I really need to get using it. Vellum can be a bit tricky to adhere as it is somewhat transparent, so for my panel I I used a clear 3D “foam” tape and added some pieces under the flower and some under the diecut word as well, to try to disguise it. This meant that the right side didn’t have much support, but it seemed to be alright.
Step 5: To finish it I added a few sequins with a liquid adhesive and also hid a bit of the clear adhesive under them as well. I then added it all to my A2 side folding cardbase using white craft foam using a double sided tape.
I hope that you have enjoyed my project for today. A bit more on the simple side, but it just helps to feature this gorgeous floral even more. Thank you so very much for stopping by and I wish you all the most wonderful and crafty day! Until next time,
Summer is a big time for outdoor activities here in Colorado, so I could not resist using the new Camping Out stamp set to create a Colorado-esque canoeing scene. Colorado is also a state filled with dog lovers (I am one of them), so I could not resist the adorable dog wagging ‘hello’ from the lake.
Hello everyone, Sanna here today with one last Christmas project for this season. I created a blue-red-white colored gift tag that will hopefully make its recipient happy. This background is so much fun to make!
Hi! It’s Candy Spiegel returning with another project I created. This one was designed for my husband’s birthday.
For the cover, I started with a piece of Velvet Adhesive Sheet in beige and embossed it with Trendy Tiles 2 embossing folder. I was trying to replicate some sort of brick roadway.
After embossing, I coated the raised portion with Staz-On Ink in black. Then, I created the corners with a corner rounder.
I die cut one Happy Birthday out of black card stock and one out of patterned paper and layered the two to create a shadow effect.
I then transferred my Peel-Off sticker on a piece of double sided adhesive on white card stock and applied Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. I colored my image with Copic markers. Els has a great You video of this technique: Silk Microfine Glitter – Coloring with Alcohol Markers.
For the inside of the card, I used the Lots of Pops die set.
I added “Happy Birthday” on a banner from the Assorted Words Peel-Off sheet.
The saying was printed on the computer. I used the extra dies from the Katie Label Pivot Card to create the labels. I added tiny steering wheels from the Peel-Off sheet to the edges.
I also added a few planes from that same sticker sheet to the background.
My husband loved it … what do you think?
