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 45 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.

556 Now cut a small freehand circle out of the centre of the frame or again use a small labels 22 die to remove the centre piece.

6 67 Snip across the frame to open up the piece and start to concertina the vellum back and forth to get small pleats. Repeat this on the 2nd frame and set aside.

7 78 Now stamp and emboss the kaleidoscope image onto vellum using the same lapis pearl lustre embossing powder. Just the small inner area is needed for the centre of the flower.

8 89 Cut the circle design out of the piece & place this in the cup of your hand & use your finger to mould the vellum into shape.

9 910 Repeat the process and cut another image but leave more of the pattern to create a larger centre piece.

10 1011 Take the 3rd embossed frame which was cut out using the labels 22 die
& form a circle of 3d gel glue.

11 1112 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.

12 1213 Take the 2nd frame and curve this into more of a spiral shape. Add another dollop of glue in the centre of piece & add this vellum to build the flower.

13 1314 Add more glue if it`s needed.

14 1415  Choose the small or larger centre of prepared vellum and add into the flower. Add more glue if it`s needed.

15 1516  Cut a small ditty flower out of vellum to make the centre piece of the flower.

16 1617 This will just add lots of extra layers to the finished piece.

17 1718 Either use an A4 sheet of platinum card or if you are using 12” x 12” card then place it on the Spellbinder base plate & trim to size.

18 1819 Tape down largest Spellbinder labels 22 die in the centre of the card & cut and emboss the shape out using the Grand Calibur™ machine.

19 1920 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.

20 2021 Press the beads into piece to make sure there are no loose beads.

21 2122 Trim the panel that was left from cutting out the large labels 22 die into a square and run a single embossed line around the edging.

222223 This is how the flower will look once the elements are assembled later on. Add some patina gilding wax to the edges of petals on the vellum flower.

23 2324 Stamp & emboss another frame but this time it is going to be used to create some co-ordinating corners to the project.

24 2425 Cut the frame into 4 sections making sure the curve of the design is retained on the corner of the vellum.

25 2526 Place one of the sections onto the corner of the card & fold the edges down.

26 26

27 Trim away any bulky excess off the vellum making sure enough is retained to stick & hold the corner in place.

27 2728 Repeat this on all of the remaining corners to complete the look.

28 2829 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.

29 2930 Add some Cosmic Shimmer glue to the reverse side of the micro bead panel & place it down in the centre towards the upper edge of the card.

30 3031 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 3132 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 3233 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.
