As the temps outside begin to rise, here on the blog we are also heating up with designer inspiration! Over the next several weeks our designers will be bringing you inspiration and design ideas featuring their trademark styles and produts from our new collection, Sunshine and Smiles. This week Heather Telford joins us with her artistic stamping!
Heather has us a’flutter with her gorgeous inlaid die technique featuring our new Creative Die, 51-139 Butterflies.
Here’s how Heather achieved the look of elegance on her card above.
Step 1 Spritz or paint water onto a piece of cold pressed watercolor paper then add watercolor paint in three or four colors. Let it blend, tilt the paper, move it around with a paintbrush if it is not going where you want it to. Let it dry.
Step 2 Add more paint to deepen the colors which will have dried paler than when you painted them. Add some metallic gold paint and some splatters. Let panel dry, then trim to desired size.
Step 3 With the ‘Butterflies’ die, cut a panel from your watercolored piece and a piece of metallic gold cardstock. Press both panels onto some ‘Cling film-Press & Seal’ to keep all the pieces together.
Step 4 Attach a piece of double sided adhesive sheet (eg. ‘stick it’) to a piece of cardstock larger than your die-cut panel.
Step 5 Remove the liner paper from the adhesive and press the gold ‘frame’ part of the butterflies die onto the adhesive covered cardstock.
Step 6 Transfer the ‘inside’ pieces from the die-cut watercolored panel into the gold frame pressing each one firmly onto the adhesive backing.
Step 7 Attach the remaining border piece of watercolored cardstock around the inlaid die-cut panel. Trim excess cardstock from the completed inlaid die cut panel. Mat with gold card then attach to co-ordinating card base.
