Make It Monday #7: Petal Garden Designer Series Paper

Make It Monday #7: Petal Garden Designer Series Paper

Vellum is a beautiful, versatile and fragile type of paper that can add uniqueness to any project. There are lots of ways to use vellum and today I’m going to share with you just one idea.

I love the  Petal Garden DSP, but I find that it is bright and vibrant, and I sometimes struggle to use it.  So I’ve challenged myself to use it.

I’ve started by selecting different patterns from the Petal Garden DSP, the flowers seemed to be to vibrant and bright for me and took away from the greeting which was my main focus on this card. So I placed a piece of Vellum the same size as the floral piece to soften it a bit.

I stamped my greeting from Thankful Thoughts stamp set and cut it out using the Layering Circle Framelits.

Masculine – Die Cut Inlay

Masculine – Die Cut Inlay

A Die cut inlay is not a new technique it has been around for some time.  Die Cut Inlay is when you cut an image or shape and put it back in the same place, this give it a bit of dimension as appose to leaving your image just stamped.

I’ve created my background using a sponging technique and various colours (Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Cherry Cobbler & Cajun Craze).  Sponging is one of the most easiest and cheapest ways to add contrast and character to your project.  Learn more about Stampin’ Up! Sponges HERE

Vintage Leaves, Thankful Thoughts

I’ve stamped my image from Vintage Leaves Stamp Set in Versamark Ink and Gold Embossing Powder.  Next I Die cutted the image using my coordinating Framelits Leaflets Framelits. After adhering my sponged cardstock to my Cajun Craze Mat I replaced my die cut image with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Tricks & Tips

  • Hold your sponge tightly and start my sponging off the cardstock to remove any excess ink and then gradually in a circular motion sponge onto the cardstock til you have the desired effect.

Watercolour Smooching

Watercolour Smooching

I thought it would be fun to play with a few of the classic ink pads on some cards, creating a watercolour smooching technique

Watercolour Smooching

Tricks & Tips

  • If you don’t have acetate or a plastic sheet on hand, use an acrylic block. The benefit of the acetate is that you can bend it, and have more control over the placement of the ink than you get with a stiff acrylic block. The results are similar enough that it doesn’t really matter which you use!

Heat Embossing on Vellum

Patterned paper is just one of the little joys of being a card maker. (The colours! The designs!) In fact, many of us collect patterned paper! However, sometimes it isn’t easy incorporating busy patterns onto small cards. That’s where vellum works wonders in creating perfectly patterned cards.

Vellum, Heat Embossing

I’ve heat embossed my greeting from Thankful Thoughts Stamp Set in Versamark Ink and then heat embossed with White Embossing Powder.  Using the 2nd largest die from the Banner Framelits to cut out my greeting.

I’ve finished it off by wrapping some Whisper White Baker’s twine across the top of my greeting and adhering my greeting to my patterned paper using liquid glue.  This way you’re able to hide the adhesive by placing it directly behind the Baker’s twine.

Vellum, Heat Embossing

Tricks & Tips

  • Ensure your heat tool is hot before melting your embossing powder, this will prevent the vellum from warping
  • If the vellum is getting too hot, move the heat away for a few seconds and then try heating a different area, this will help prevent warping on the vellum

Shadow Stamping

Shadow Stamping

Hello there. Today’s video shares how to do Shadow Stamping.  The fun technique of “stamping shadows” is so-very-easy to do, and yet gives really fun results.

Shadow Stamping

I arranged a cluster of solid images from the Garden in Bloom Stamp Set in one corner of  a piece of coloured cardstock from the Brights Collection.  I’ve stamped my image with Whisper White Craft Ink.  I then rotated the paper and stamped them again in the opposite corner.

I then stamped the same images again and this time, stamped them with same colour as my cardstock to match.  The overlapping of the Whisper White Craft Ink  and the coloured classic ink gives the illusion that three inks were used instead of two.

Shadow Stamping

I finished off the cards by white heat embossing a variety of Sentiments from Stylized Birthday and Thankful Thoughts Stamp Sets in the center of the of the cards. I adhered all the panels to white notecards.  This would be a great set of notecards to give as a gift.

Shadow Stamping

Tricks & Tips

  • Stamp your second image slightly off center from the first, this will the illusion of depth to create the shadow technique
  • Craft Ink takes longer to dry.  Dry your cardstock with a heat tool or set aside for the ink to dry completely before adding your greeting
  • Rub an Embossing Buddy across your cardstock to remove any static before stamping your greeting and heat embossing
  • This technique works best with bold colours (brights colour family)
