How To Guide - Step 1

Ink up this gorgeous floral stamp, from the Beautiful Soul set, with the no-line ink pad and stamp just to the top left of the white card (6 3/4" square). 

Apply a little of your Premium ink pads to your glass mat, add water and paint your stamped image, as required. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Once the ink is dry, apply a little of the Cotton Pigment ink on to your glass mat, add water and splatter over your artwork. 

Use your heat tool to dry the inks thoroughly, before proceeding to the next step. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Use the heart die, from the Love Always Stamp and Die Collection, to die cut an aperture through your stamped image, as seen here. The heart die needs to be smaller than the stamped image, allowing some of the image to remain "uncut".  

Set the stamped, die cut heart to one side.

How To Guide - Step 4

Apply foam pads on the reverse, around the edges of the card and the aperture, as seen here. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Adhere this on to your white, 7 x 7" card blank. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Use wet glue to adhere the stamped heart back inside the aperture, ensuring you line up your stamped image. 

Set your card aside. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Cut a piece from the white A4 card, slightly bigger than your You & Me die. Set the remainder of the card aside. 

Pop a little of the Limeade and Heather on to your glass mat, add water then smoosh your card in to the ink, ensuring you dry off in between each colour, to avoid colour contamination. 

Dry the ink with a quick blast from your heat tool. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Place the You & Me die on the inky card and run it through your die cutting machine. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Die cut THREE more sentiments from the white card you set aside. 

How To Guide - Step 10

Adhere the three die cuts together, to create a more substantial 3D element. 

How To Guide - Step 11

Adhere the inky die cut on top of the 3D element. 

How To Guide - Step 12

Adhere your 3D sentiment to the bottom right of your artwork. 

How To Guide - Step 13

Finally, adhere sequins on and around your artwork, as required.
