Hello Friends and welcome to Day #3 of the Taylored Expressions August Release Sneak Peeks! I sure love this week!!!
Today I am highlighting this gorgeous new Damask Embossing Folder on my wedding card. I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this embossing folder! I can already think of many amazing uses for it! The photo below shows it embossed on Sugar Cube Cardstock... I hope you can see it well. Click on the photo to enlarge the view, if needed. I also used the Notable Blooms and In & Out Wedding stamp sets along with the new TE Sugar Cube Pigment Ink! BEST WHITE INK ON THE MARKET!!!
I have a tutorial below... take a peek on how I made my card and colored my flowers!
Step 1: Cut Toffee cardstock 4 ¼” x 11” & score at 5 ½”
Step 2: Trim Cupcake cardstock 4 ¼” x 5 ½” & trim with the largest scallop frame from the Frame in Frame 2 Cutting Plate Dies. Attach frame to Toffee card base.
Step 3: Trim a piece of Sugar Cube Cardstock 4 ¼” x 5 ½” & trim with the largest scallop frame from the Frame in Frame 2 Cutting Plate Dies. Take the inside piece and emboss it using the Damask Embossing Folder. Attach to card base, inside the Cupcake Scallop Frame, using foam adhesive.
Step 4: Stamp sentiment using Sugar Cube Pigment Ink on Cupcake Cardstock. Heat emboss with white embossing powder.
Step 5: Trim the sentiment with the Stitched Banner Stacklet and trim the ends so it fits inside the frame. Attach to the card base.
Step 6: On watercolor paper, stamp the smallest flower from the Notable Blooms stamp set using Sugar Cube Pigment Ink and heat emboss with white embossing powder. Trim with coordinating dies.
Here's how I colored the flowers:
Step 1: Using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, add Mid Green and Olive Green ink to the leaves. Leave some white space for blending. NOTE: If I have multiple flowers to color, I usually like to color one complete flower first to make sure it turns out the way I like it.
Step 2: Next I use a water brush to blend the two shades of green together. NOTE: You won’t need much water to do this because the area is very small. If you get too much water, dab it with a paper towel, let it dry for a few minutes and add more color to the area.
Step 3: Add Yellow & Bright Yellow to the center of the flower and blend with the water brush.
Step 4: Add Light Pink to each flower petal – make sure to leave some white space for blending.
Step 5: Next add Sugared Almond Pink to each flower petal.
Step 6: Finally, add Tea Rose Pink to each flower petal and then blend with a water brush. NOTE: If you want more of one color, just add it from the marker and blend again with the water brush. I find it helpful to have a paper towel handy to dab excess water off my water brush.
And this is the end result. I added some glitter to the center of each flower and then attached them to the corners of the sentiment.
