Woodgrain Botanicals – Hibiscus by Alison Stroud

Craft Skill Level: Beginner

Time To Make: 30-45 mins

(approx.)

Card Blank is C5 size.

Cut a piece of Fabulous Fuchsia cardstock  2/8” smaller than the blank and Mandarin Burst 2/8” smaller than the Fuchsia, mat and layer these to the card blank using foam tape.

Cut a piece of Pure White cardstock 2/8” smaller than the mandarin burst card.

Using two pieces of removable tape mask off a panel in the centre of the card and using the two contrasting colours of Distress Oxides and smoothies randomly ink the two outside panels making sure you don’t colour right over the tape.

Once the ink is dry remove the tape.

Using two new pieces of tape carefully place a piece on each side of the white panel, with the tape being over the coloured panel. This will ensure that the stamped image will not mark the coloured sides.

Wipe the white area with an antistatic pad.

Ink up the stamp using embossing ink and stamp the bottom section of the card so the bottom of the stem is at the bottom edge. Re-ink the stamp and stamp the top section of the card to just meet the first stamped image. (You could add the  silver embossing powder to the first stamped image so you can see where to stamp the image again more easily).

REMEMBER to remove the tape before heat embossing.

Add silver embossing powder over the whole section and heat to set.

On a spare scrap of white card stamp and emboss the image twice more, and  fussy cut three flowers.

Using the oxides and a water brush, colour the middle of all the flowers with picked raspberry,( I then dabbed with a piece of kitchen roll to take a bit of the colour out). Then, using the same process colour the outer of the flowers with the carved pumpkin, and then the leaves with the bundled sage.

Using foam tape, add this layer to the card blank.

Attach the flowers to card, as in the photo, to give some dimension and to hide the join between the stamps.

Stamp the sentiments required using the embossing ink and coloured powders alternating colours, then cut out using the stitched torn dies. Attach to the left side of the card.

Complete by adding a large pearl in each corner.

Friday Live – 15th May

Here’s the card that Phill made during his Friday Live on 15th May.

Its made using the A6 Medley Stamps, Flower Dies, Compendium of Sentiments and A4 Essentials Premium Paper Packs. The card in the photo uses the Bluebell and Sage Papers and Coffee Bean Cardstock.

THE FULL CARD

Stage 1 – Cut out all the layers and die cuts needed as below:

  • Card Blank – 20 x 20cm
  • Layer 1 – Coffee Bean Card – 19x19cm
  • Layer 2 – Paper Layer – 18.5×18.5cm (Scuffed Edges)
  • Layer 3 – Paper Strip – 18cm x 6cm (Torn)
  • Oval Frame – Coffee Bean Card
  • Oval Shape – Pure White Card
  • Elegance and Enchanting Flower Dies – cut using the papers
  • Lush Leaves Die
  • Essential Tags Die – x2 (paper and card)

Stage 2 – Ink the edges of the Paper Layer using the Acorn Versafine Clair Ink Pad using a ‘patting action’. This helps it to be blend more subtly onto the paper and gives it a shabby finish. Then use the Sakura Real White Gel pens to draw a stitched border pattern around the layer. Using the Four in One Flower Border Stencil gently ink some flowers onto the paper layer. Use the Woodware Edge Crimper to shred the edges of the paper and shabby up the edges. Phill also went round the edge and tore the paper a little. Adhere to Card stock layer.

Stage 3 – Tear the edges of the Paper Strip. If you stay close you will get a larger white border. Use the Life Quotes Extras Textures to add a pattern onto the paper strip. Phill did second generation stamping.

Stage 4 – Assemble the layers onto the card blank, using foam tape where you wish. The Coffee Bean Frame is underneath the paper strip, so only the top and bottom half is visible with the white stitching border.

Stage 5 – Stamp up the A6 Medley Stamp onto the plain oval with the Versafine Clair.

TOP TIP – when a stamp is larger than the die cut shape, use a sheet of paper and a tiny, tiny blob of glue to keep it in place. (see video). Stamp the Medley Image again onto scrap paper as you will need some extras to cut out and decoupage.

Stage 6 – Use the Watercolour Brush Blending Pens to colour in the main oval image and the extras you wish to decoupage. Adhere the oval image to the card blank. Stamp the sentiment onto the small tag.

Stage 7 – Shape and assemble the flowers onto the card blank. Add the Lush Leaves as you go. Add pearls to the centre of the flowers and add glitter where you wish.

Stamp the front paper layer with a texture stamp and Pure White Embossing Powder.
