Step by Step Instructions
1 Select the scrollwork stamp from the `Stamps to Die For…` range along with the Spellbinders labels 22 die set as this co-ordinates with the stamp plate.
2 Swipe an anti static bag across a piece of parchment. Ink the scrollwork stamp up with some perfect medium ink.
3 Stamp the image onto the vellum and apply the Cosmic Shimmer lapis pearl embossing powder over the just stamped ink.
4 Repeat the process so you have either 3 or 4 stamped images and emboss the frames using a heat tool set the embossing powder. In this project 4 frames have been used.
4 5 Either cut around the edge of the embossed frame making sure a small border of vellum is left to prevent the embossing powder chipping off or cut the frames out using the co-ordinating Spellbinders labels 22 die.
11 12 Take the pleated frame and stick the edges of the vellum into the glue. Make sure the vellum stands up at an angle to create the flower effect and curve any excess vellum around into the middle of the piece.
19 20 Now cut another largest labels 22 die shape in the adhesive film (DO NOT emboss this piece as it will crack the backing film) Add the sticky shape to the cut die shape & apply micro beads to the panel.
27 Trim away any bulky excess off the vellum making sure enough is retained to stick & hold the corner in place.
28 29 Now emboss a piece of platinum card using the Creative Expression A4 tapestry folder making sure the Spellbinder raspberry plate is used along with the base plate and a shim of card if needed. Trim the card to size & mount onto a piece of silver mirri card. Apply some patina gilding wax just around the edge of the emboss card.
30 31 Add foam tape to the framed card & place over the micro bead panel. Move the beaded frame around whilst it is still wet to make sure it`s in the correct position before leaving to set. Add the vellum piece to card using 3d glue for added dimension.
31 32 Stamp the `Friendship` sentiment on a piece of platinum card using the Adirondack `bottle` dye ink pad. Cut the sentiment out & mount onto a piece of silver mirri board. Attach the sentiment to the bottom of the card & add a crushed silky bow to the corner of the aperture. Here a glazed flower left over from the UTEE Workshop – Part 2 has been added to complete the project.
32 33 Here is the finished project. Something a bit different with the `Stamps to Die For… ` stamp. It`s always a great challenge to see what different uses you can find for just one stamp. Have a go as it will open up your eyes when stamping.
