How To Guide - Step 1

Ink up this stamp from the Imala Time To Sparkle Stamp Collection, with the Memento ink and stamp just off the left edge of the white, super smooth card. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Use your Gossip alcohol pens to colour in your stamped image. 

NB: The alcohol ink will bleed through your card and may stain the surface below, so place a piece of card, or copier paper, underneath to protect your work surface.  

How To Guide - Step 3

Lay the Stylized Star stencil on to your stamped image and blend through with the Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide, the colour being darker around the edges and fading out, as you move inwards towards your stamped image. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Blend the Shaded Lilac Oxide randomly through the Imala Gorgeous Snowflake stencil, around the edges of your artwork. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Add the Stickles around the edges of the stencil and blast with your heat tool. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Wipe the anti-static bag over your vellum panel. 

Ink up the sentiment stamp with the WOW sticky embossing ink and stamp towards the right side of the panel. Cover with the white embossing powder and having got your heat tool hot first, heat set the powder, ensuring you move the tool as soon as the powder starts to turn, thus reducing the risk of warping the vellum or burning the powder. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Place the embossed vellum across the lower half of your artwork, tuck the ends over the edges of the card and secure on the back with double sided tape. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Adhere your artwork on to the purple glitter card and then on to your DL card blank. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Use your liquid pearl drops to add a little pearl to the centre of the ribbon bows, on the gifts.
