After the 2021 January – June Mini Catalog came out, Jackie, Buffy (of our Stamp Off Challenges) and I were talking about the products in the catalog. Buffy and I both loved the Fine Art Floral Suite that included the stamp set called Art Gallery, the Floral Gallery Dies, Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper and other embellishments. One of the embellishments is the Gilded Leafing. Buffy and I both purchased it right away but Jackie did not want anything to do with it. So, Buffy and I talked and decided to send Jackie some cards we made using the Gilded Leafing. Jackie called it an “evil plot”. Well, guess what? It worked! Jackie ended up loving the Gilded Leafing and purchased it.
This is the card I sent her to help her decide that she really needed these products. The stamp set called Art Gallery is a two step stamp set. This means that it can take two or more stamps to make an image. In this case, I first stamped the larger flower in Flirty Flamingo Ink and then the second stamp in Poppy Parade on top. I stamped the smaller flower in Poppy Parade and the leaves in Mossy Meadow ink.
In order to add the Gilded Leafing you first stamp in Versamark Ink. Then you sprinkle some Heat & Stick Powder on top of the Versamark and lightly heat it with your Heat Tool. If you heat it too much it will lose it stickiness. After you heat up the powder you press the Gilded Leafing into it. Actually, I pressed the card into the Gilded Leafing. Now, I have to say the Gilded Leafing is very light and can float around so you need to be careful. I decided to pour the entire container of it into a box with a lid so I pressed the card against it. Then I took a Stampin Sponge and wiped off the excess. This is a close up of the flower. I love how shiny it is.
After adding the Gilded Leafing I cut the flowers and leaves out using the coordinating dies from the set called Floral Gallery. I layered these on a piece of Basic White cardstock that I had embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I stamped the sentiment in Poppy Parade Ink and cut it out using another die from Floral Gallery. Lastly, I added the bow of Linen Thread using a Glue Dot.
Now, I don’t think this plot was very evil at all! It was just showing a friend what they were missing out on!
