Spring has Sprung!

Hello everyone...I hope you are all having a great weekend!!!!  The weather finally decided to cooperate and it feels like Spring has Sprung.

We had a great time at my workshop and I wanted to share some of the cards we made.  The first one I totally CASED from my sideline Roxanne, she has awesome talent for flair...
Swallowtail - 129216 Clear
The great thing about this card is not one turned out the same.  They were all different and beautiful, just like my customers.  We used Versa Mark and the colored embossing powders along with the triple stamping technique.

Using various colors I cut the card stock to size of 4" x 4", 3" x 3", 2" x 2" and then cut Whisper White cardstock to 3-3/4" x 3-3/4", 2-3/4" x 2-3/4", 1-3/4" x 13/4".   I then removed the colored cardstock and layered the whisper white cardstock pieces on top of each other using a repositionable adhesive if you like.  You do this for your stamping.


Prepare the embossing colors you wish to use and have your heat tool ready.  Use your embossing buddy and rub on your whisper white cardstock. This helps to prevent the embossing powder from sticking where you do not want it to stick... 

Now take your Versa Mark pad and ink up your swallowtail butterfly.  Press onto the layered white card stock, the entire swallowtail will not fit completely in this space, and that is OK.  Moving quickly sprinkle (you do not want the versa mark to dry) the colors where you want on the wings of the butterfly. I also used a little sprinkle of Dazzling Diamonds to give some added sparkle, tap off excessive powder into powder tray or spare piece of paper and then discard.

Once you have everything where you want it, you heat your embossing powder.  Remember the embossing heat tool can get very hot and can burn your paper.  Move in a slow and circular motion not to burn the paper or embossing powder.  You know when it is complete when your powder turns to a shiny sheen.

Here are the other cards we did:
Secret Garden Stamp set and Framlits - Bundle 131099 Clear

Fresh Tulips using the Wing on the
Bird Builder Punch - 117191
