I've been having so much fun playing with the Gilded Leafing product. This product was introduced in the soon to retire Mini Catalog, but don't fear, it was carried over into the new Annual Catalog.
This card features a technique using the Gilded Leafing as a background. I love how this card turned out and it was so easy to make.
I inked the Stacked Stone background stamp with Versa Mark ink and very lightly stamped onto Basic White cardstock. Applying a light pressure to the cardstock gave me the light and airy background effect I wanted. Next, I applied Heat & Stick Powder and set with a heat tool. The final step is to apply the Gilded Leafing and brush off the excess. Messy, but oh, so fun.
For this card, I applied more pressure stamping onto the cardstock for a completely different effect.
Same card layout, same stamp and products, but two completely different looks! How cool is that?
The Butterfly was stamped onto Basic Black cardstock with Versa Mark ink, and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. I popped it out with the Brilliant Wing Die. Yes, I could have used the Gilded Leafing on the butterfly, but I wanted to show the contrast between the Gold Embossing and the Gold Leafing.
This card was just one of the examples of my June Technique Class. Please click on EVENTS at the top of my blog for my class schedule. I would love to have you join me for a class of stamping fun and fellowship. Life is starting to return "normal" and I'm so blessed that my stampers are returning to classes. I've missed stamping and laughing with everyone!
