How To Guide - Step 1

Ink up the solid stamp, from Celebrate Today Lamination Collection, with the Hickory Smoke Oxide. Spritz the stamp with water and stamp off the left edge of the white cardstock. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Ink up the same stamp with the Hickory Smoke on the foliage, the Fossilized Amber in the centre of the flower and the Villainous Potion on the petals. Spritz the stamp with water and stamp it on top of, but to the right, of your previous stamped image. 

Dry your artwork off with your heat tool. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Ink up the coordinating detailed stamp, with the Onyx Black Versafine and stamp over your image. If you are unsure how to line it up, the images on the packaging will help. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Add water to your Confetti Paint and use a paintbrush to splatter your artwork. 

Set to one side to dry. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Having decided where you want the sentiment to be stamped, wipe over the vellum with your anti-static bag. Ink up the sentiment stamp with the Indigo Premium ink pad and stamp in postion.

Sprinkle the clear embossing powder over the ink, then getting your heat tool hot first, heat set the powder. Ensure you move the tool as soon as the powder starts to turn, to avoid warping the vellum. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Place the embossed vellum down the right hand side of your artwork, tuck the top and bottom of the vellum over the edges of the card and secure on the back with double sided tape. 

How To Guide - Step 7
