From Stamp to Embellishment

Silhouette stamps are wonderful for creating chipboard-like embellishments...

To create the thick tree embellishment, Penny Black's new Grandeur was stamped on white cardstock with Niagara Mist VersaMagic ink and the sentiment from Gratitude in Onyx Black VersaFine.  Clear embossing powder was sprinkled over the image and heat set.

After trimming the image, it was pounced with VersaMark Watermark ink and heat embossed with clear powder.  This step was repeated a second time.

The card base was constructed from two Labels Fifteen die cuts and edged with Delicata Golden Glitz ink.  A portion of a third Labels Fifteen die cut was stamped with Damask Pattern in Teal Zeal Memento.  The piece was first distressed with Peanut Brittle Memento and then Teal Zeal Memento.

From the photo you can see how the layers were assembled with the addition of a Classic Oval die cut and dimensional foam tape.

Have a fabulous Friday,
