Hello crafty friends! I’m so excited to share with you today’s project where I use new supplies from the most recent Simon Hurley’s release combined with some I’ve had for a while. I hope you enjoy this tutorial and that it inspires you to do something fun and creative today!
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 at 5½. Cut another piece measuring about 4 x 5¼ to be your front panel.
Step 2: With the Heat It Craft Tool, heat the stamping foam. Once heated, press the stamping foam against the Stippled Circles background stamp to get an impression.
Step 3: Use any of Simon Hurley’s ink pads to ink the entire stamp foam onto a piece of masking paper.
Step 4: After cleaning the round part of the stamping foam, cover half of it with low tack tape and ink the other half using the Weeping Willow and Cookie Dough inks. Use a Blending Tool to remove any harsh lines from the ink pads. Then stamp it onto the front panel cardstock.
Step 5: Cut out the circle stamped image from the masking paper. Put the remaining piece away to use for any future project.
Step 6: Using the circle masking paper, cover the circle image that was stamped in step 4. Then use the Overzealous ink with the Grand Greenery stencil to ink the background of the front panel piece.
Step 7: Next, flip the Grand Greenery stencil to add more to the background using the Later Gator Lunar Paste and the palette knife from Simon Hurley create. Paste Tool Set.
Step 8: On a separate piece of Stark White Cardstock, stamp the flower and leaves images from the Pretty Peonies stamp set using Black Soot Archival Ink for the outline images. To ink the layers, use Slippery When Wet, Rosy Cheeks, Triple Berry, Overzealous, and Clear Skies ink pads.
Step 9: Cut out the images from the Pretty Peonies stamp set.
Step 10: Using the Make Art Stay-tion, assemble the cut out images on front panel and glue flowers on inked half circle using Wendy Vecchi Perfect Card Adhesive and foam tape. Then glue front panel on card base.
Step 11: On Tim Holtz Alcohol Ink Cardstock Black Matte, stamp one of the sentiments from the Pretty Peonies stamp set with the Emboss it Clear Pad. Then heat emboss it using Super Fine White Embossing Powder.
Step 12: Trim sentiment and use Wendy Vecchi Perfect Card Adhesive and foam tape to glue sentiment on part of the flower images.
Step 13: Use Glossy Accents on the flowers and leaves stamped images. Use Stickles Glitter Glue Salt Water to add accents to the background.
Step 14: Pair the card with your favorite-colored envelope and it is ready to be mailed to a loved one!
