2 A4 Sheets Elegance Satin Card 300gsm.
1 A4 Sheet Elegance Satin Paper 160gms.
Signature Embossing Stencil – Renaissance 6603.
Signature Die - Build a Flower SD078.
Signature Die – Leafy Flourish SD013.
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads – Chipped Sapphire and Pumice Stone.
Royal ¾” Stencil Brush available from JS Shop.
Sticky Stuff – I used Pinflair Glue Gel and Cosmic Shimmer Glue.
Using Elegance Satin card cut a piece of card 15cms x 29.7cms. Landscape orientation score in half vertically, do not fold the score line. Right side facing position the Renaissance embossing stencil to the right of the score line and emboss. Do not remove the stencil from the card.
Using a stencil brush and the Pumice Stone Distress Ink Pad, lightly stipple through the stencil to add colour. Remove the stencil. Fold the score line.
Each flower is made up of different size combinations of the 3.1 die from the Build a Flower die set which contain three different sized flower dies and three sets of stamens.
The two largest flowers were made using 2 large, 2 medium and 4 small die cuts. The remaining smaller flowers were made using the medium and small dies. The more die-cuts used the fuller the flower. Cut the flowers using JS Elegance Satin Paper 160gsm.
3.2 Cut out the die.
3.3 Trim the points off each of the three petals feathering the edge when cutting.
3.4 Using the Chipped Sapphire Distressed Ink Pad colour the edge of each petal by either running the edge along the ink pad or using the stencil brush.
3.5 Spritz each petal and allow the ink to bleed.
3.6 While wet curl the petals into a “furled umbrella” shape.
3.7 Cut a small circle of paper approximately the size of a 5p piece. When almost dry cup the petals using a large embossing ball tool.
3.8 Place a blob of glue gel on the 5p piece of paper and starting with the largest petals build the flower staggering the petals and finishing with the smallest petals in the centre of the flower. Use glue gel between each layer of petals. Tweak to shape and leave to dry. I made seven flowers in varying sizes.
Using the Signature Leafy Flourish die and Elegance Satin card cut two flourishes. Colour lightly using the Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink Pad. Optional Spritz and leave to dry to disperse the ink more evenly.
