Technique Tuesday May Release
Hello there! Welcome to Technique Tuesday’s May release blog hop day! On today’s blog I’ll be sharing with you how I created these two floral greeting cards featuring the new Green House Society Sending Roses Stamp Set & Sending Roses Crafting Dies.
By the way, I’m your fourth stop on the lineup. If, you are in right track you should have arrived here from Sheree Forcier Blog. If, not… don’t worry down below you’ll find the full lineup list for you to start over, or to keep hopping along with us. As, we hope you get inspired with all of the inspiration projects that we had created using the new Stamps & Crafting Dies from the May’s release.
That being said, keep on reading the tutorial. ↓
For the first example I started by stamping with Black ink the whole image from the Sending Roses Stamp Set in a piece of white card stock. Right after the stamping, I waited a few minutes for the ink to dry out. Next, I used a few pencil colors to color the rose with Pink tones, and the leaves with green tones.
Soon after I was done coloring, I used its coordinated crafting die to die-cut the clustered image out of the white card stock. In the meantime I ran through the die-cutting machine an embossing folder to dry-emboss the card panels that I was going to use for both cards.
Once, the card panels were dry-embossed I used the paper trimmer to cut all the edges a little bit smaller than the card bases, because I wanted to leave a little frame around. Finally, I adhered the backed of one of the card panels to an A2 size white card base with foam mounting tape, and I started the card layering.
For this card layering I added a big piece of Metallic Silver embroidered thread in the exact place where I was planning to place the rose image. Next, I adhered the backed of the rose image on top of it with foam mounting tape adding a little bit of dimension. Then, I white heat embossed one of the sentiments that are included in the Sending Roses Stamp Set in a piece of black card stock. Once, the heat embossing was melted I trimmed the sentiment down and I adhered it on one of he side of the card with foam mounting tape. To complement the sentiment I used the Sending die included in the Sending Roses Crafting Dies to die-cut 2X out of white card stock, and 1X as soon as the die-cuttings were done I stacked them all together creating a dimensional die-cutting. (you can see I left the black one as the base as I wanted to add a little shadowing to it.) Right afterwards, I adhered the Sending die-cutting above the sub-sentiment that I had previously adhered to the card with liquid glue. Finally, to finish the card off I adhered a tiny white pearl to the title for the i + a few more here and there as embellishments. Also, I added Nuvo Crystal Drops to the Sending die-cutting for a glossy-shiny look.
For the second example I kept the same design, and I repeated the same steps as the first example. However, I decided to do a no-line coloring. For the card panel, I used the reversed side of the dry-embossed card panel. (I hope you’re able to see the difference between both examples)
For the sentiment I gold embossed a different sentiment which is also included in the stamp set, and I used once aging the Sending crafting die to die-cut 3X out of white card stock. For the card layering I decided to chance the placement of the rose, but I kept the same idea as the previous example as you can see in the picture above.
