Create this lovely piece yourself By Sharon Hudson
Thank you for stopping by, I thought I'd do a step by step photo tutorial showing how I created one of my samples for Pearlywinks show on Hochanda.
You dont have to use the exact colours & embossing powders as I do , I just prefer these with this card.
You will need:
Card stock, I used 6 x 6 " cardstock from Pearlywinks. I found i needed about 2 of their cards which are scored in the middle. I cut them down to make 4 separate pieces.
- Embossing powders, you can use any colour you wish. I used white, gold & clear
- Your chosen matt & layer cardstock. I used black satin & gold mirrored cardstock
- Embossing ink, versafine black ink, distress ink I used baby pink, glue, scissors, stamping platform & anything else you may use
Step 2: Once dry stamp the butterfly stamp in 4 different sections of one of the cardstock at different angles and emboss in white embossing powder
Step 3: Stamp another butterfly in pink ink (or another colour) on white or coloured cardstock and clear emboss then cut out.
Tip: If you find you can't cut out detailed stamps very well, leave an outline and fill it in using an alcohol pen in the same colour as the stamp
Step 5: Cut down your spray coloured backgrounds to the correct size so you can matt & layer them with your chosen layers. I used black and gold mirrored cardstock.
Step 6: Stamp out your chosen sentiment onto same coloured cardstock you're using as a background and emboss in clear embossing powder . Cut out and matt & layer
Step 7: Using one of the small element stamps from Pearlywinks sentiments stamps, stamp in black around the edges of the other background card to create a border
Step 8: You now should have all elements to start making the card. Use foam tape or silicone gel to mount them . Stick the butterflies over 2 of the white partly stamped ones on the main background and glue sentiment on
Tip: When using foam tape, spread some glue onto the sticky side to make it easier to centre the card when Matt & layering
I've used 2 different colours on each card here, pumpkin orange & vintage teal on one & hot pink & pumpkin orange on the other.
Very effective & the inks are so vibrant. The bloom & flight stamp has to be one of my favourites so far.
Thank you so much for stopping by
Have a lovely day
