Welcome to our West Coast Creators team blog hop! This is a super exciting time, as it’s a new year and with that, Stampin’ Up has released it’s newest Mini Catalogue which spans from Jan – June. This catty is super impressive, filled with such creative inspiration! If you haven’t seen it yet, you can access it here!
One of my favourites and the one I gravitated to immediately, is the Fine Art Floral suite. (#155982). Not only does it have an versatile stamp set (with 2-step stamping) and die bundle (#156227) but it also introduces an amazing new gilded leafing technique (#154560), which I haven’t seen before.
In this post, I will be showcasing 2 cards, in the same style but with 2 different techniques, using this suite.
This card uses the large flower (2-step) stamps to give the image a nice dimensional feel to it. It was stamped in Purple Posey and Highland Heather ink. The card base is made with Garden Green cardstock and a 5 1/4 x 4 mat, embossed with the suite’s Painted Texture 3D Embossing folder. (#154317)
You can see the new Gilded Leafing Embellishment technique, to enhance the flower. This is done by using Versamark ink, the applying Heat & Stick Powder (#156110) and using the Heat Tool to active the adhesive. Then the Gilded Leafing is pressed on top and the excess brushed off, to create the final look. Amazing isn’t it?
The 2nd card is a similar design, but instead of the Gilded Leafing, I used Clear Embossing Powder to create a nice glossy look over the flower.
