It's been quite a busy week now that school has started, however I will be doing my utmost to post regularly - at least twice a week. For this week's I tried triple embossing for the first time and really it makes.
The designers at the Paper Take Weekly have asked us to make a card using autumn colours. What better colours than oranges and browns?
Orange papers (I'm afraid don't have the name of producer)
Sizzix clear stamps
Happy Birthday Stamp
Black Staz-on Ink
Tangerine Versa colour ink
Clear Pigment Ink- Ink it up
Gold Embossing Ink - Ink it up
Enchanted old embossing powder - Heat it Up
Gold thread and needle
Paper Trimmer - Scallops and straight cutter
Big Shot Die Cutting Machine
Accents - Die cut
- Using a scalloped trimmer cut a brown panel slightly smaller than the card blank. Prick holes and then use gold thread as shown. Distress edges using the tangerine pigment ink and emboss using clear powder.
- Stamp 3 flowers on light orange paper and cut out. Die cut the accents using the big shot. (Refer to technique used to make the accents on the Paper Pocket). Stick using either foam pads or a glue pen.
- Take a square piece of white chipboard and press clear embossing ink in a stroking manner. Make sure all the cardboard is covered. Cover with enchanted gold embossing and heat it up. Do the same step three more times.
- Before the last layer is added, prepare the greeting stamp by inking it with gold ink. After repeating step three for the fourth time, stamp the greeting before the fourth layer dries.
Sprinkle clear embossing powder and heat to seal the greeting.
- Once ready, trim using the scallop trimmer and then cut a slightly larger piece of paper from the darker orange.
- Assemble everything as shown.
P.S. I am afraid I finished the card late in the afternoon and it was already dark. I will try to take a better photo tomorrow as the card is much better than the photo is doing it justice.
