Hi crafty friends! Today, I’m excited to share with you another card using the Kaleidoscope Flowers background stamp and the Succulent stamps and dies from Simon Hurley’s latest release. I hope this tutorial gives you some inspiration to do something fun and creative!
Step 1: Create an A2 card base out of Stark White Cardstock. Cut the 8½ x 11 cardstock down to 4¼ x 11. Then score it at 5½.
Step 2: On a separate piece of Stark White Cardstock, heat emboss the Kaleidoscope Flowers background stamp using Emboss It Clear pad and Super Fine White embossing powder.
Step 3: After the stamped image is heat embossed, color blend the background using these Simon Hurley ink pads: Shooting Star, Prom Queen, Crown Me, and Shady. Then trim the background to 4 x 5¼.
Step 4: Next, use Dylusions Shimmer Spray White Linen to add extra shimmer to the inked background.
Step 5: On a separate piece of Stark White Cardstock, stamp one of the succulent images using Jet black archival ink. Next, stamp the same image on masking paper and trim the succulent image with scissors.
Step 6: Cover the succulent image that was stamped on Stark White Cardstock with the trimmed masked image from step 5. Next stamp another succulent next to it. You will repeat this step to use the layering stamp to color the inside of the image with Later Gator and Viper ink pads.
Step 7: Use the coordinating dies to do a partial die cutting of the most open succulent stamped image. Trim the partially covered succulent with scissors to make them both look evenly die cut.
Step 8: After finishing the partial die cutting and trimming, stamp sentiments from the Succulents stamp set with Jet Black archival ink.
Step 9: Glue the inked background to the card base using Wendy Vecchi MAKE ART Perfect Card Adhesive.
Step 10: Add adhesive to the piece that has the succulent images and tape it to the bottom of the front panel.
Step 11: Add Glossy Accents to the succulent images, and Gold Stickles Glitter Glue to the center of the Kaleidoscope flowers.
Step 12: Pair the card with a matching envelope and it is ready to be sent to a loved one!
