Rich plum card has been use for a firmer shape to the piece & one of the baubles has micro beads completely over the whole design , the other has the oval image design cut out first & added back to the bauble once the micro beads have been added. This makes for a clearer image.

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1. Select the Creative Expressions snowy brook bauble stamp along with the Sue Wilson vintage bauble festive collection die. The project also requires some vellum, self adhesive sheets & some micro beads. This project comes in 2 part with part 1 starting the build up to the micro beads version or you can opt for a stronger card version. The whole project was designed as I wanted something 3d and I always like to try think of another use for a standard stamp and I think this ticks that box !!!

11

Step 2. Take a piece of the self adhesive sheet secure the largest solid bauble die shape over a sheet using some low tack tape. Cut another piece of adhesive sheet to go underneath this rectangle as you`ll be able to cut 2 baubles at a time.

2 2

Step 3. Cut out the bauble without embossing the piece as this can crack the adhesive backing and the embossing wouldn`t be seen either. Turn the bauble around & cut through both layers again. You`ll now have the 4 sticky sheet baubles for the project.

3 3

Step 4. This piece has been cut out in copier paper and just shows you how I planned the design. It`s a bit like making a pattern and you`ll find you start to see different uses for the die once you play around with waste pieces of paper.

4 4

Step 5. Cut a piece of the old vintage gold card to 3 1/8” x 3 1/8 ” & then cut a metallic vintage gold piece of card to 3” x 3” and emboss a line around all 4 edges of the darker gold piece. Use some foam tape to attach the 2 pieces together for added dimension.

5 5

Step 6. Cut 4 of the corner / bauble decorative hanging die shapes out of pearl white paper or card.

6 6

Step 7. In order to get the corner pieces to fit onto the gold base you`ll need to trim off some of the flourish pieces. This is fun to get the 4 pieces to fit like a jigsaw. Do this on all 4 corners.

7 7

Step 8. Set the pieces onto the gold base to make sure the pieces fit nicely together.

8 8

Step 9. Use some Cosmic Shimmer dries glue to stick to pieces into place.

9 9

Step 10. Place the snowy brook bauble stamp onto an acrylic block as it`s already mounted onto a foam backing. Ink the stamp using the clear and resist ink pad ( or Perfect Medium). Swipe a piece of vellum with an anti static bag before stamping the image onto the vellum.

10 10

Step 11. Tip the Cosmic Shimmer bright gold embossing powder over the clear ink & tap off the excess.

11 11

Step 12. Repeat the process until you have 4 baubles stamped & the embossing powder added. Now heat set the embossing powder using a heat tool.

12 12

Step 13. Place the solid bauble die over the stamped image & secure in place with some low tack tape.

13 13

Step 14. I find it best to remove the other stamped images from the prepared panel as it saves the other pieces being run through the die cutting machine. Sometimes you can get odd piece of card stuck to a embossing plate so this saves any small marks being transferred to the vellum or the embossed lines of the bauble being pressed over and over when passed through the die cutting machine.

14 14

Step 15. Cut all 4 stamped baubles pieces out.

15 15

Step 16. Take a pair of decoupage snips or small scissors and go in & cut the oval scenery shape out in one continues piece. Be careful when starting the cut as you want it kept neat as this is top layer and will be seem once the bauble has been assembled.

16 16

Step 17. Repeat this process on all 4 baubles. The reason for doing this is because the bauble is going to be turned upside down to create the unique shape on the finished piece. The oval will be turned around & added back into the bauble for different use to this stamp.

17 17

Step 18. Add the stamped vellum bauble onto bauble shape adhesive sheet. Make sure you leave the backing on the other side of the adhesive sheet. The bauble will fit perfectly onto the sheet and will leave a sticky oval centre ready for the oval to be added.

18 18

Step 19. Now go in and turn the oval stamped centres before adding them to the upside down bauble panels ( make sure you turn the baubles so they are placed in correctly )

19 19

This is the finished piece. I love the effect the vellum has on the finished bauble design as the oval help hold the shape & the micro beads added on the reverse allow the piece to be nice & soft. So check back next week and all will be revealed

             Happy Crafting x

& a side view revealing the corner die cut shapes inside the piece.

Step 20. Here is a different look of a piece, it`s made using the rich plum card as the baubles will stand more upright . The tulle makes a wonderful soft feel to the embellishments of the piece.

____________________________

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1. Select the Creative Expressions Sue Wilson festive collection vintage bauble die & the Sue Wilson festive collection pine bough die sets along with the Creative Expressions festive wreath stamp & Creative Expressions mini frames scrollwork stamp.

1 1

Step 2. For this project you`ll also need the following , Self Adhesive Sticky SheetMicro Beads, Creative Expressions floral brocade PinPoint embossing folder, coconut card, silver shadow double sided card & foundations rich plum A4 card stock.

2 2

Step 3. Stick a piece of parchment or (thin paper) to the back of a piece of self adhesive sheet leaving the top backing on the adhesive sheet. Now add the 2 vintage bauble dies sets onto the sheet securing in place with some low tack tape. The tape will only just hold the dies in place as the backing on the adhesive sheet is slippery but it will hold enough to cut the dies.

3 3

Step 4. Cut the die sheet through the Grand Calibur machine & TOP TIP

DO NOT emboss the adhesive sheet as it will crack when trying to remove the backing off.

4 4

Step 5. This is a photo of the bauble dies once they have been passed through the Grand Calibur twice. You`ll see the areas towards the middle of the piece have not cut straight through the sheet, this is because there is often less pressure in the middle section of the die cutting machine. To correct this just turn the dies around so the uncut areas are now near the edges of the cutting plates. Pass the sandwich through the machine 1 or 2 more times to create the even cut bauble.

5 5

Step 6 Once completed the die cut piece will look like this, fully cut through the self adhesive sheet.

6 6

Step 7. Although the piece is cut you might need to ease the cut areas out using a pokey tool or tips of some decoupage snips. The pieces will easily come out.

7 7

Step 8. Alternatively cut 2 piece of parchment out using the same dies.

8 8

Step 9. Use some of the sticky thumb tape runner to stick the pieces in place or even use some Cosmic Shimmer dries clear PVA glue.

9 9

Step 10. If using the adhesive sheet, remove the backing off the die cut piece & with the bauble in a plastic box lid tip some Clear micro beads over the sticky bauble.

10 10

Step 11. Press the beads into the sticky sheet to ensure a full coverage of the bauble piece.

11 11

Step 12. For a different look turn the beaded piece over & swipe a distress ink pad over the parchment. Here seedless preserves distress ink pad has been used to tone in with the rich plum card stock with will be used in the finished card.

12 12

Step 13. Take a piece of cut`n`dry foam and wipe away any excess ink from the parchment . This will just soften the look too.

13 13

Step 14. Turn the piece back over to reveal the beaded soft purple bauble piece.

14 14

Step 15. Another way to add texture to the bauble is to add the sticky thumb tape runner over the joined parchment bauble.

15 15

Step 16. Sprinkle over the Cosmic Shimmer iced snow glitter jewels.

16 16

Step 17. Alternatively sprinkle some Distress stickles dry glitter ~ clear rock candy over the sticky sheet or taped bauble. These are just some of the different ways to add texture to the bauble.

So you choose which effect you want for the project and maybe go with just one effect but in different ways as will be shown in the coming steps.

17 17

Step 18. If you used the sticky thumb tape runner and added the iced snow jewels you can go in and clear some of the webbed effect should you not want that look. There are no right and wrongs , just use what you feel happy with, these are just some suggestions to give you some ideas.

18 18

Step 19. Once you have cut some of the bauble hanging pieces in the rich purple card it`s best if you return the dies to the sticky area on the die packaging. Here I have placed the carrier sheet into a poly grip sealed bag to make sure the small dies are nice and safe.

1919

Step 20. Cut and emboss 4 of the pine bough die pieces out using the coconut card. Lay the baubles out to get an idea on the shape you want the design to take. This is where I decided I wanted the purple micro bead bauble and then I am going to make 2 micro bead recessed baubles.

20 20

Step 21. For that you will need to add some of the self adhesive sticky sheets to a piece of Coconut card. Cut the solid baubles out using just the outside die only. I used a small off cut so that is why the tips of the white baubles are straight but they won`t be seen so all is well. Cut & emboss a large and medium bauble out of coconut card. Distress the baubles using the seedless preserve ink pad.

21 21

Step 22. Add some clear micro beads over the sticky sheet of card.

22 22

Step 23. Add the purple baubles over the top of the micro bead solid bases using some 3D glue for added dimension. This will give a lovely caged feel to the piece.

23 23

Step 24. Pass a piece of the 2 tone purple / green ribbon through the loop on the purple bauble topper. Secure the ribbon back down on itself by using some double sided tape. Glue can be used but it might show through the fibres of the ribbon so be careful if trying this. Cut the ribbon off in a point to neaten the edges off. Add a solid piece of silver shine card to the back of the purple micro bead bauble. When making the smaller shorter ribbons for 2 of the baubles then fold a piece of the ribbon down the centre and secure in place with some double sided tape, then loop it through the bauble topper & secure with some more tape as in the larger ribbon piece.

24 24

Step 25. Select a piece of foundations rich plum card & place it in the Creative Expressions floral brocade PinPoint embossing folder. Emboss the folder through the Grand Calibur machine but only go a quarter of the way down before reversing the folder back out of the GC. Turn the embossing folder and plate stack around ( not flipped over just around to the other end ) Now pass the embossing folder through the GC again and just go about half way before reversing the folder back out again. This is an optional step and it`s just been done to create a plain section on the embossed panel in the card . This will bring out the baubles more in the finished piece. Now lay the baubles onto the card to find out how long to leave the ribbon tips.

25 25

Step 26. Cut the plum card to 7” wide by 8” deep. Make sure the plain border strip in the card is more towards the top of the panel. Join 2 pieces of silver shine card together making the join / folded spine fall across the top . Cut the card to 8” wide x 9” deep. Mat the plum embossed card onto a piece of the silver shine card. Now arrange the white fir pieces starting from the left hand side of the card & attach them to the card using some Cosmic Shimmer dries clear PVA glue. Trim off any excess pine bough pieces that have fallen over the edge of the card. Once the glue is dry curve the edges of the fir up to add dimension to the fir. Attach the panel to the base card using foam tape.

26 26

Step 27. Stick the baubles onto the card using foam tape behind the baubles & using the Cosmic Shimmer dries clear glue on the ribbon to hold them down onto the white fir branches. Make 3 small bows using the same purple ribbon & add them to the tops of the ribbon to finish the baubles off nicely.

27 27

Step 28. Stamp the Creative Expressions festive wreath stamp & Creative Expressions mini frames scrollwork singles stamp out onto a piece of silver shine card using the Cosmic Shimmer silver shine embossing powder. Cut around the edges of the scrollwork frame & add the sentiment in the middle of the frame having cut that out around the edges of the sentiment. Add some foam tape to the reverse of the sentiment for added dimension.

28 28

Step 29. Add some faux pearls to the corner of the card using the Cosmic Shimmer purple violet PVA glue. Be careful when adding the glue directly over the embossed areas as it might make the dots of glue drag whilst settling. To eliminate this you can always make the glue pearls on a non stick craft mat & once the faux pearls are dry glue then add them to the card for a perfect finish.

29 29

Step 30. Add the sentiment to the corner space left in the bottom right hand corner of the card.

30 30

 Here is the completed project Lots of texture as well as different tones of purples to bring the project all together.

The dies are a STUNNING design and I’m sure they will be admired on my mantle piece this Christmas and for years to come.

Happy Crafting

____________________________

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1. Select the Creative Expressions Sue Wilson Festive Collection Classic Poinsettia die & the Filigree Poinsettia die along with the Creative Expressions Merry Christmas Singles stamp set & some olive green wrinkled edged or crushed ribbon.

11

Step 2. Take a piece of the silver shadow double sided card & swipe it with an anti static bag. Ink up the Merry Christmas stamp using the clear & resist ink pad ( or use Perfect Medium ) and stamp & then add the Cosmic Shimmer silver shine embossing powder over the ink. Heat set the embossing powder to reveal this wonderful detailed Christmas panel.

22

Step 3. Stamp other image using the same embossing powder so that the image can be decoupaged. This will also add some dimension to the piece.

3 3

Step 4. Cut the stamped image out leaving a small border around the edge of the design. Here the piece has been cut to 4½” x 3¾”. Also cut the other image out in sections around the edge of each piece, this being the `Merry` , the small poinsettia image and if you want cut another poinsettia out and cut it out using the inner embossed line as a guide.

4 4

Step 5. As the poinsettia area is going to be covered over then use the bottom space to decide which colouring medium you want to use. Here the Cosmic Shimmer lava red watercolour has been used along with the holly green watercolour.

5 5

Step 6 If not why not use the Tim Holtz distress ink markers to colour in directly onto the card itself. As you are using a shimmer card the ink will lay nicely on the surface.

6 6

Step 7. Depending on the colours you have in the distress markers stash you may not have a couple of colours so you can mix and match the inks by making up your own ink station. Using different tones of red ink will help shade the poinsettia, so here festive berries , fired brick & worn lipstick have been added to a cello pack with a piece of white card inserted inside. Write the initials next to the ink so that you won`t get them mixed up when using the inks. Colour the poinsettia images in using the distress inks.

7 7

Step 8. To bring some of the Christmas tones into the project as well as some texture I have taken a piece of white card slightly larger than the Merry Christmas topper & swiped the Tim Holtz Shabby Shutters or Peeled Paint distress ink pad directly over the edges only on the card. Also make an even larger piece of white card to mat underneath the green but this time use the festive berries ink pad to colour the edges.

8 8

Step 9. Also make a slightly larger mat using the same green ink to go under the `Merry` section on the topper piece. Use some foam pads to add the pieces onto the topper piece & again when adding the green mat underneath.

9 9

Step 10. Now add the red prepared panel using foam pads to complete the topper layering.

10 10

Step 11. Pick out the leaves & berries on the topper & colour in using the distress inks. Cut the poinsettia flower out of the off cut that was embossed when making the decoupaged piece. Colour the flower in & use some 3D glue to raise the flower up and give it some dimension.

11 11

Step 12. Cut & emboss using the classic poinsettia & the filigree poinsettia dies. Here the 240gsm foundations coconut card has been used. Place the filigree dies close the edges on the Grand Calibur base platform when cutting them out as that is where the added pressure is, sometimes you may need to cut the dies out using an extra pass through die cutting machine as the filigree design is intricate but as you can see this card cut perfectly & this was achieved using just 2 passes as I always wind the boards through the machine & back so I get the boards to release back in front of me ( less reaching too )

12 12

Step 13. Carefully take the filigree poinsettia flowers out of the die & use the Spellbinders all in one tool to remove the excess pieces easily from the dies. For this project you will need 2 larger filigree flowers , 3 medium filigree & 3 small filigree. Also needed is 2 classic poinsettia shapes & 1 medium classic shape. This will make the 3 flowers needed for this project. Add some of the fired brick distress ink onto the filigree flowers leaving some of the white showing on the card.

13 13

Step 14. Here are the coloured poinsettia flowers & now use the shabby shutters ink to distress the white areas of the flower. This will give a life like effect to the flowers

14 14

Step 15. Distress the solid classic shapes using the Shabby Shutters distress ink & then go in and curve some of the leaves using the closed blades of a pair of scissors.

15 15

Step 16. Place the green poinsettia leaf onto the reverse side of a piece of foam pad & gently move a ball tool in a circular motion around the centre of the leaf. This will bring up the leaves & give a lovely lift to the base leaves. Repeat on the other 2 green solid leaves.

16 16

Step 17. Add some 3D glue into the centre of the green solid leaf shape & add the largest filigree flower over the glue. Cosmic Shimmer dries clear glue could also be used if you wanted less lift on the centres of the flower, this means you would just have to lift & curve the petals up further to achieve the dimension.

17 17

Step 18. Repeat the process and make the 2nd flower up. For the smaller flower bend the petals in half so that 2 of the petals remain on the surface & then glue the other petals onto the green base leaves. This will allow the smaller flower to be tucked into the larger flowers when it is assembled on the card.

18 18

Step 19. To make the silver base card then just score a piece of the silver shadow card stock at 3” in from the left hand side. Attach another piece of the card under the flap & cut the excess off to make an 8” x 8” card.

19 19

Step 20. Take another piece of the silver shadow card & cut it to 7” x 7”. Use the poinsettia stamp from the Creative Expressions wreath stamp set & stamp at random over the edges & around the inner circle of the card using the clear & resist ink pad. Use the Cosmic Shimmer silver shine embossing powder to cover the clear ink & then heat set the piece. Cut a piece of silver mirri card slightly larger than this piece to mat it on.

20 20

Step 21. Add some Cosmic Shimmer dries clear glue over the poinsettia panel & add the silver mirri or alternatively add some double sided tape to the edges of the panel & turn back 2cms of the tape to form a tab effect.

21 21

Step 22. Place the panel onto the silver mirri making sure the piece has a border which is the same width all around the edge. If it isn`t then just lift the panel and adjust before pulling the tabs off the tape & securing the piece in place.

22 22

Step 23. Add some of the olive ribbon over the left hand side of the card and along the top side of the panel. Secure the ribbon on the reverse of the card leaving a little slack in the ribbon. Place a thread or in this case an off cut wire from a flower embellishment ( always save them as they are so useful for this technique) and pass it under the cross over piece of the ribbon.

23 23

Step 24. Now pull the wire up gathering the ribbon as you go & twist the wire to secure the ribbon in place.

24 24

Step 25. Add some foam tape around the edges of the reverse of the card. Being a fine ribbon then there will be no bulky areas & the foam will sit nicely over it.

25 25

Step 26. Add the piece to the prepared base card before adding the 3 poinsettia flowers to the corner of the card. Make a bow using the same ribbon & then add a smaller bow to cover the knot of the ribbon.

26 26

Step 27. Here you can see the dimension & tones on the filigree flowers.

27 27

Step 28. Add a faux pearl using the Cosmic shimmer spring green PVA glue to the centre of the flowers.

28 28

Step 29. Once the glue has dried it will give a lovely finish to the poinsettia as well as drawing the green tones throughout the project.

29 29.

Step 30. Here the bow has a small ribbon added to the knot of the bow or you can use one of the many Creative Expressions embellishments to cover the knot.

30 30

Step 31. So there are lots of silver tones running throughout the project, this has allowed the lovely red & green shades to shine through. For a richer feel why not use the antique vintage gold card along with some bright gold embossing powder.

31 31

Step 32. Here is a close up of the centres of the 2 tone poinsettias.

32 32

 Here is the completed project. The Creative Expressions Merry Christmas panel stamp makes for a STUNNING centre to a Christmas card. It also takes a lot of the worry when making an   8”x 8” card as it`s a great size stamp & there is so much detail in the stamp design. The Sue Wilson poinsettias are a perfect embellishment to complete the Christmas card off. Just what you need when making lots of Christmas cards.

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1. Here is part 2 of the workshop where in the last step the fan was added to the tied together parchment, then the dried vintage ribbon was added to the base of the fan. The black vintage button embellishment was added over the knot of the bow to complete the bow off. So to continue to finish the base card & to make the wrap to give an elegance to the card.

122

Step 2. Use the teal sky PVA glue to make small faux pearl on each of the cross over sections that are visible on the parchment tied together pattern. If you are unsure when making these pearls then practise on the non stick mat until you are happy with the glue flow.

223

Step 3. Make each pearl the same size & allow the piece to dry.

324

Step 4. To bring out the detail in the flowers in the fan section, the Tim Holtz distress markers have been used. Select the broken china & the forest moss pens & shade in the floral areas on the ends of the fan blades.

425

Step 5. To make the parchment wrap stamp over one whole piece of parchment using the broken china ink pad & the same floral bold stamps that was used earlier. When the ink is dry emboss the whole sheet using the tied together embossing folder.

526

Step 6. Select a 2nd piece of parchment & measure 16cms in from the left hand side of the parchment. Then continue stamp using the broken china ink with the floral bold stamps leaving the measured space clear. Now emboss the whole sheet using the same tied together embossing folder.

627

Step 7. Once the 2 pieces of parchment have been laid together you`ll see you can get the pattern to match up.

Step 8. Marry the underneath design up by placing the patterned parchment overlapping the plain embossed area and just meeting the stamped floral design. The embossed area will easily just slot into place over the embossed pattern underneath. This wrap has been designed so that the plainness of the parchment underneath will help the stamped image to flow throughout.

829

Step 9. Add a small pencil mark where the end of the top parchment needs to go & then add some adhesive by using the sticky thumb tape runner, Just add one layer of the tape around the plain parchment areas as this will not be seen once the parchment has been added over the top.

930

Step 10. Add the parchment over the tape making sure the pattern lines up as you did in the lining up stage. Crease the 2 stamped flaps back up be either side of the 16cms base point. Now you will have the easily made wrap which will co-ordinate with the base fan card. Round off the corner edges using a corner punch for added detail.

1031

Step 11. Wrap a length of the Limoges vintage ribbon around the closed up wrap & tie one bow. Now make a scrunched bow like the one made for fan card. Attach the bow to the just made bow but make sure the glue doesn`t stick the ribbon to the card as this ribbon will need to slide off sideways for the wrap to open rather than being untied. Stamp & cut out 2 or 4 flowers using the bold floral stamp & the broken china ink pad on a piece of blue card. Finish with a black vintage button embellishment.

1132

Step 12. Here is a close up of the fan card with the raised slanted fan blades which add dimension to the piece.

1233

Step 13. The finished project ~ the fan card complete with the matching wrap. The great thing about a design is that you can take elements of the workshop to make you own design up and maybe use a new Sue Wilson pinpoint embossing folder or use the workshop in full to recreate the project. Crafting is a great thing as you can change the colours to suit your needs.

1334

Step 14. Just the fan card on it`s own.

There are different fan stamps in the JustRite range so please check out the Creative Expressions site to view them or if you are on the blog post then please follow this link.

1435

Step 15. The wrap was made with lots of room to house the depth of the card, so great for decoupaged images. If you have a bigger 8” x 8” card then just adjust the blank panel measurement to suit your needs.

1536

Here is the completed Tied Together Parchment Wrap & JustRite Fan Project.

Happy Crafting ~ Suzanne

 _______________________

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1. Select the JustRite vintage fan die set along with the JustRite clear floral fan stamps which go hand in hand in working together. Also the new Couture Creations A4 tied together embossing folder is needed to create the wonderful parchment wrap to encase the fan card inside. 

11

Step 2. This photo just shows how perfectly the clear fan stamps goes inside the vintage fan die.

22

Step 3. Place the clear fan stamp on an acrylic block & ink it up using the clear & resist ink pad. Stamp the image onto a piece of sky blue foundations A4 card before adding the Cosmic Shimmer Viola Black Aurora embossing powder over the top of the ink. When stamping the fan be sure to leave enough blue card around the edge of the design so that the fans can be die cut afterwards.

3

Step 4. Once the fans have been heat set then place the die cut side down over the fan & secure it in place using some low tack tape. Cut the die & card through the die cutting machine making sure cut edge of the die faces into the cutting plate.

44

Step 5. It`s best to work in odd numbers , like in flower arranging so this project uses 5 fan shapes, but you might want to work in 3`s or 7`s. Here just 2 of the fans are going to be cut using the die shape with the embossing on. Cut & emboss 3 more fan shapes using just the plain blue card.

55

Step 6. Cut 3 of the fan stamped images out around the outline, this is easy to follow & this will mean you can raise the image up onto the fan die shape below. Use a black marker pen to just catch the edges of the card as this will eliminate the blue core of the card & give a neat finish to the piece.

66

Step 7. Use the small sentiments from the fan stamp sheet to ink & then emboss the sentiment using the clear ink & black embossing powder. Here the `Happy Birthday` & `To a dear friend` sentiment have been used on the 2 flat fan blades.

77

Step 8. On the other 3 fan blades the solid flower stamp was used with embossing powder, but as you can see it leaves a mass of embossing powder and isn`t very defined. So it`s best to stamp the flower image onto a piece of the sky blue card using the broken china distress ink pad. Cut around the flower & then curve and stick the flower to the fan blade using a 3d glue.

88

Step 9. It is optional but now is the time to distress the edges of the fans using the same broken china ink pad on a piece of cut`n`dry foam. Gather the fans blades, it`s easier to use the Spellbinders all in one tool through the hole in the fan, this with help position the fans & give you an idea on spacing’s too.

99

Step 10. Fix a brad through the hole & bend the back of the fixing back on itself to secure the brad in place.

1010

Step 11. Cut some small long pieces of foam tape & place on the side of the fan edges on reverse side of the 2nd, 3rd , 4th & 5th fan shapes.

1111

Step 12. Remove the backings off the foam & begin to stick each blade to each other.

1212

Step 13. Keep flipping the fan from front to back to make sure the blades sit the correct side of the stamped sentiment before sticking the blade down.

1313

Step 14. Continue until you have all 5 of the blades stuck in the correct position.

1414

Step 15. Cut a piece of parchment to 7” x 4¾”. Stamp at random using the same solid single flower head along with the slightly larger stamp with a double head of flowers on it. Stamp using the broken china ink pad.

1515

Step 16. Use a heat tool to gently dry the parchment as excessive heat with warp the parchment. Open the Couture Creations tied together embossing folder up. Line the stamped parchment up so that the edges of the parchment fall on the cross over points on the pattern as this will allow you to place the faux PVA pearls near the edge of the piece giving you a lovely frame to the piece. This larger embossing folder makes it possible to do this technique without any joins to the parchment.

1616

Step 17. Use the Grand Calibur base plate , the tied together embossing folder with the parchment inside followed by the tan mat & the raspberry Spellbinders plate.

TOP TIP ~ Please make sure you never force any plate sandwich through your machine, this combination was used and it created no resistance at all, but your machine may be different. Any worries please look at the Creative Expressions website to see which plate combination is advisable.

1717

Step 18. The panel was embossed easily in one pass and the pattern is just the same in the middle as the outer piece of the folder. So a great embossing folder. Mount the parchment onto some blue card using the sticky thumb tape runner. Mat this onto a base card which has been made again out of the blue card using foam tape.

1818

Step 19. Remove the brad from the fan blades if you are adding a button embellishment . Add a single foam pad to the base of the fan & then add 2 or 3 foam pads high to the top of the fan as this will tip the fan up more giving it added dimension.

19

19

Step 20. Add some broken china ink to a non stick craft mat & then spritz a small amount of water over the ink. Scrunch a bow made out the blue Limoges vintage ribbon into the ink & work it around.

20 20

Step 21. For extra depth & colour ~ scrunch the just coloured ribbon directly onto the ink pad as this will pick up the creases on the bow. Heat set the ink onto the bow or set aside until the piece has air dried.

21 21

Step 22. With the fan added to the tied together parchment on the base card using the foam pads, now attach the dried vintage ribbon to the base of the fan. Add a black vintage button embellishment over the knot of the bow to complete the bow off.

22 22

Here is the completed

tied together fan card which will be completed next week with a matching parchment wrap in part 2.

 _______________________

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1. So now you have tied the bow at the end workshop part 1, it`s time to complete the following steps to finish the project.

120

Step 2. Pull the 2 loops each side of the bow towards the top so the tails of the ribbon fall downwards and this will make the nice shape to the bow. Cut the 2 ends on either side off at an angle to neaten them. Place a sparkle embellishment over the knot of the ribbon to finish the detail off.

2 21

Step 3. Cut a piece of antique gold card to 6” x 5½” & Ink up the garden frame stamp using the clear and resist ink pad or some perfect medium ink. Stamp just a small width of the border stamp , and work around the edge of the card. Turn the card and start to work around the other edges of the card until you get to the last untouched area of card. After you have stamped the piece then add the Cosmic Shimmer gold embossing powder over the ink.

322

Step 4. There will be a small section of card left, so just ink a small area of the stamp & stamp over the blank area to fill it in.

4 23

Step 5. Once completed and the embossing is all heat set, you`ll have a lovely gold border all around the edge in detailed gold embossing.

5 24

Step 6. One tiny area wasn`t stamped properly with the ink, but if this happens to you don`t worry as the parchment wrap will cover that or if not then a butterfly is great in covering a small mistake !!!

6 25

Step 7. Attach some foam tape to the reverse of the parchment wrap prepared panel & stick in onto the gold embossed panel.

726

Step 8. Cut the piece of pinpoint parchment to 7 7/8” wide x 8” length. Run a line of gold accent pen around the edge of the embossed parchment before matting with foam tape onto a piece of antique gold card. Then mount onto a base panel of white card of 8¼” x 8½”. Add some 3mm wonder tape around the edge of the pinpoint parchment    ( just above the gold line ) & remove the backing from the tape.

8 27

Step 9. Place the card over a piece of scrap paper & tip the Cosmic Shimmer iced snow glitter jewels over the tape. Work all around the tape and press the jewels in firmly to the tape and knock of any loose excess jewels.

9 28

Step 10. Take the Creative Expressions pearl spray & unwrap the pearls before twisting 3 strands of the pearls back up together.

10 29

Step 11. Cut the wire off so that just a small amount of wire remains with the pearls gathered together. ( Make sure you use some wire clippers or old scissors & not your best scissors !!! )

11 30

Step 12. Place a piece of self adhesive sheet onto a piece of parchment & secure 2 of the filigree magical butterfly dies from the Sue Wilson finishing touches range. Pass the dies through the Grand Calibur die cutting machine a number of times.

TOP TIP it doesn`t matter if it takes 6 or 7 goes as it`s much quicker than cutting a die out !!! ~ just remember the dies will cut better down the side of the cutting mats as there is more pressure on the sides of the die cutting machine . The die will resist the self adhesive sheet but it`s worth the extra runs through the machine. DO NOT emboss the sheet as it will crack the adhesive sheet.

12 31

Step 13. Now you will have the carrier sheet off the self adhesive sheet which will be used to colour blue and will just be a delicate underneath to the sticky top layer.

13 32

Step 14. So colour the carrier sheet using the tumbled glass brush end of the distress marker pen. Leave the sticky butterfly clear & add some dry glitter rock candy over the top of the sticky butterfly.

1433

Step 15. Add the grouped spray of pearls to the top area of the parchment wrap using some silicone glue before adding the blue layer of the butterfly to cover the metal end of the sprig.

1534

Step 16. For the half butterfly curve the edges of the wings using a pair of decoupage snips or small scissors.

1635

Step 17. Add this butterfly to the corner of the card where the small amount of not embossed area is , this will cover the mistake or just add where you want as I’m sure you won`t have the same mistake !!! ~ this was just shown to say it`s easy to cover up small issues. Add another butterfly to the bottom of the wrap if you wish. Stamp and emboss a `Best Wishes ` sentiment using gold embossing powder.

1736

Step 18. Here is a close up of the delicate butterflies set over the different layers of parchment for a lovely soft feel to the project.

1837

Step 19. and a close up of the butterflies.

1938

Step 20. The gold accent pen feature which just gives a lovely feel to the project or you could emboss the piece using gold embossing powder and heat set it. This technique is achieved by inking up the edge of die before embossing it through the Grand Calibur machine , and then you add the gold embossing powder and heat set it.

2039

Step 21. Here is the finished card. The pinpoint embossing folder is just perfect to add that wow factor to the background, here it just adds another texture to the piece.

Happy Crafting ~ Suzanne

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1. Select the Creative Expressions garden frame singles stamp along with the Sue Wilson Beverley Hills Californian die & the finishing touches magical butterflies die.

11

Step 2. Before starting the project I wanted to share why the Spellbinders `All in one Tool `will help eliminate those uncut areas when die cutting. Plus it`s fun too !!!

When using any die is it very important to remove all the little pieces of card or parchment left in the die. This is done using the Spellbinders `All in one Tool`. Angle the die so it`s not flat on a work surface and run the bristle end of the tool over the die. The pieces will easily fall out and should any of the dots remain in the die just take the pokey tool end & poke the pieces out.

2 2

Step 2a. The tool has also got a handy storage core to it to house the pokey tool & scoop attachment , just turn the centre to reveal the hollow centre section. ( I`m only showing this as like many crafters we don`t read the instructions when getting something new and wouldn`t know the compartment is even there !!! )

2a 2a

Step 2b. To remove the end attachment tool, just press the end back onto the next circular notch and it will release the attachment when it`s pulled out & place then in the storage area as this will keep them safe (all is explained on the reverse of the tool packaging too).

2b2b

Step 3. Use low tack tape to secure the 2 outer dies from the Beverley hills die set to the parchment. This will make sure the die will stay evenly spaced when passing it through the die cutting machine.

3 3

Step 4. Here the left hand die shape was cut without the die being cleared of any pieces beforehand & pieces of the parchment are still left in the cut shape. These can be poked out afterwards but sometimes you will get the odd piece that isn`t cut & it might tear when it`s being taken out of the die. The right hand cut shape was cut with a clean die and it came out perfectly with the first cut & emboss. Using the tool just makes the job so quick and easy & you`ll find you will be cleaning your dies just for the fun of it . For the project you will need 3 parchment shapes.

4 4

Step 5. Add the Creative Expressions garden frame onto an acrylic block & ink it up using the Adirondack snow cap ink.

55

Step 6. Just ink half the stamp up as you`ll be stamping off the die cut going in from both edges.

6 6

Step 7. Turn the parchment die cut shape on an angle & stamp the image starting roughly from the centre of the parchment piece. Add some Cosmic Shimmer clear embossing powder over the top & either heat set now or after you have stamped the other edge.

7 7

Step 8. Turn the piece around and repeat the process on the other edge. It doesn`t matter if there is a small border left across the middle of the parchment as it adds to the effect of the design.

8 8

Step 9. Go ahead and repeat the process on the 2nd & 3rd parchment pieces. Try and get the stripes of stamped image going in the same direction as it will look uniformed.

9 9

Step 10. Emboss a piece of A4 parchment using the Sue Wilson floral brocade pinpoint embossing folder, the base place and the white embossing plate along with the embossing folder will be used to emboss the parchment. When embossing the blue card cut a small piece of sky blue card measuring 4¼” x 4 7/8”. This will be used to make the centre for the parchment wraps to be placed around.

10 10

Step 11. The parchment can also be embossed using clear ink & white embossing powder for a brighter effect but here I just wanted a light soft image on the parchment .Take the embossed panel & lay it on a scoring board. Score a line on the top side down the centre of the piece. Now crease the pieces backwards so the embossed design is on the outside of the panel.

11 11

Step 12. Prime the Ranger gold accent pen & then just go around the outside edge of the parchment. This is easily down by holding the parchment in the air & drawing around the edge. The photo will show this crisp edge to the piece. Make sure you don`t touch the gold once it`s laid on the parchment as it will dull the gold until a few minutes when it will be dry. The gold edging looks STUNNING on the edge of parchment as it adds a lovely luxury element to the piece.

12 12

Step 13. Take the folded parchment piece & glue the panel on the reverse side of the sky blue panel ,the debossed side.

13 13

Step 14. Do the same with the other panel so the 2 pieces line up nicely together.

14 14

Step 15. Turn the card over & now draw a gold line along the top & bottom edge of the sky blue embossed card.

15 15

Step 16. Take the 3rd embossed parchment panel which wasn`t scored down the centre & use some Cosmic Shimmer dries clear glue to stick the centre panel under the embossed area.

16 16

Step 17. Place the parchment centre flap onto a cutting mat & punch 4 small holes around the single hole as this will make a nice pattern to the piece & also make a larger hole for the ribbon to go through.

17 17

Step 18. Take 2 long lengths of the Limoges blue ribbon & thread them half way through the holes just made.

18 18

Step 19. With the ribbon still folded in half grab the 2 lots of 2 ends & tie a knot in the ribbon.

19 19

Step 20. Tie the ends into a neat bow to secure the parchment wrap closed.

2020

 Here is the completed project which will be completed next week in part 2 of the project.

Something delicate but so easily achieved using the

STUNNING new Sue Wilson floral brocade pinpoint embossing folder & the finishing touches magical butterfly dies
