Good morning! Kathy here, creating art for Imagine Crafts! Today I have a new tutorial for you. I must admit I am in LOVE with the Delicata Golden Glitz pigment ink. There are several reasons:
• The color is AMAZING!
• When I don’t feel like using gold embossing powder this works fabulous (and is less messy!).
• It works fabulous with sentiments.
• It is easy to clean up.
So today I have a project for you that uses the Delicata Golden Glitz and some beautiful Tsukineko Brilliance Dew Drops. The card didn’t start out as I planned but I am happy with the finished result. Please let me know what you think in the comments! Let’s make a card.
Skill Level: Intermediate
Time to Complete: Two hours
You will need a top-folding card base measuring 4 1/4 x 5 1/2“. The rest of the panels we will create as we go. So, the first thing I wanted to play with was the Brilliance Dew Drops. I ink blended them all over a piece of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110lb card stock. I then found an embossing folder. I chose an older folder from Spellbinders. I am not sure if it is still available, but it was called the Large Medallion. I dug out my brayer, inked it up with some Delicata Golden Glitz, and rolled it over the RAISED area of the embossing folder. I put in my ink blended panel and ran it through my die-cutting machine. Here is where the plan changed. I pulled out my Gina K Designs Master Layout 2 to get the “perfect” rectangle. I taped the die to the panel. Now here is a tip when you have a panel that is loaded up with ink like mine, BEFORE you pull off the tape, heat it with your heat tool on LOW. Yeah….I didn’t do that and ripped a chunk out of the frame I was going to use. Oh well, moving right along……I used a rectangle die from GKD Master Layout 7 to cut the middle out. I WILL save this card!
I had a lot of gold ink on my brayer, so I inked up a Swiss Dot embossing folder and ran another piece of white card stock through my machine.
I then rolled the excess ink on a piece of white card stock measuring 4.25” x 5.5”. Isn’t it pretty? I HAD to incorporate it!
Cut a piece of white card stock an 1/8” larger than the focal point and with your Sponge Dauber, ink the edges of the rectangle with the Golden Glitz.
Die-cut your sentiment and using the Golden Glitz ink, use Imagine Crafts sponge daubers to apply your ink to the sentiment. Cut a shadow from the vellum. Glue these together. Using the Delicata Golden Glitz stamp the smaller, MY FRIEND, sentiment. Cut this sentiment to size. I also inked the edges of this sentiment.
Now we can assemble the card. The focal point is glued to the gold border and then adhered to the Swiss dot panel with Imagine On Point Glue. The sentiment is also adhered to the panel with glue. The MY FRIEND strip sentiment was popped up with foam tape. Then I added foam tape to the Swiss dot panel and attached it to the background panel.
Finally, I used Imagine Tear It! Tape and attached it to the card base. I added a few gems, and the card is done!
