Here is a Card made by crafters at our regular workshops. It uses Phills new 8×8 Stencils with glittery Sparkle Texture Paste! It also features his gorgeous DL Collage stamps with three different colours of embossing powders.
Stage 1 – cut out all the layers and die cut pieces needed as below:
- Card Base- 18x18cm
- Layer 1 – 17x17cm coloured/Texture Paste
- Layer 2 – 14 x 14 plain
- Layer 3 – 13.5 x 13.5 colour
- Layer 4 – 12.5 x 12.5 plain
- Layer 5 – 11.5 x 11.5 colour/embossed
- Maggie Die and Topper
- Oak Leaf Swag
- Succulent Garden
Stage 2 – choose your 8×8 stencil and 2 or 3 sparkle texture paste colours. Our main card uses the Summer Meadow stencil and platinum, new gold and copper sparkle texture paste. Tape down the stencil over the card layer and apply the texture paste, using smooth strokes in the same direction. Set aside to dry.
TIP – Be careful to wipe your spatula when you change colours or blend so as not to contaminate the other pots.
Stage 3 – choose your DL Collage stamp and co-ordinating detail embossing powder to use on the top layer. Wipe with an anti static dust bag. You need to tackle this layer in two halves! Apply perfect medium to the stamp and stamp the image on one half. Apply the detail embossing powder one colour at a time in separate areas. When all three colours are applied use a heat gun to set. Repeat on other half.
TIP – make sure you apply the embossing powder one at a time and tip the excess powder back into the pot after each colour!
Stage 4 – if you wish to stamp your flowers use the same method above with the anti static bag etc. Work with a couple of flowers at a time to apply the embossing powder. Choose your sentiment for the topper.
TIP – you can apply the embossing powder to all the flowers first and then heat them all at once
Stage 5 – apply the layers, using foam tape where you wish. Shape the flowers and assemble!
