Create an Ombre Background Using VersaFine Clair and Vellum Flowers

For today’s card, I heat embossed few flower images with white embossing powder on vellum. I used my sharp pair of scissors to cut them. To create the background I have used Versafine Clair inks which are very highly pigmented and also blend beautifully with each other. I used a jumbo dauber to add the colors. The sunset ombre looks so beautiful and then arranged the flowers on the card. To finish the card I added few splatters of the shimmer spray and a sentiment.

Learn How To Make A New Years Eve Necklace And Earrings

by Kyriakos Pachadirolgou

The leaf shape of the new Dewlet dies to inspire me to create a piece of jewelry everyone can make. Combining two different colors of metallic sheets, a gold one and a silver using SHEET Metal from Imagine, you can shape a shiny but still elegant necklace with a matching set of earrings. This project would make excellent New Years Eve celebration jewelry.

Skill: Advanced
Time: 1 hour

Directions


Step 1

Cut leaves from the SHEET Metal ATC cards and the gold colored aluminum foil. For this set, you will need 10 pieces for the necklace and 2 pieces for each earring.


Step 2

Lay the leaves on a flat surface, place them in the desired design and take a photo to follow the shape later.


Step 3

Use the round shape embossing tool and press into the leaves to create a hammered look.


Step 4

Set a small piece of Tear It! Tape on the back side of each leaf and add a drop of jewelry glue. This step will keep the leaves together in order to proceed to the next one and allow time for the jewelry glue to dry well.


Step 5

To set the waxed cord you can either punch holes and use jump rings or you can just glue it to the back of the leaves. The second option gives a more a steady result on the form of the necklace.


Step 6

To make the earrings, attach two leaves together, punch a hole and place the earring hook.

How To Create A Dewlet Shape Flower Centerpiece In A Scrap Layout

With the new Dewlet die-cut making cute little elements using your Dew Drop ink pads have just become so much easier.

There is a world of possibility with this clever die-cut just imagine all the effects you can create.

Skill: Advanced

Directions


Step 1

Use your VersaMagic Dew Drop in Night Sky and stamp directly onto a smooth piece of white cardstock. Leave to dry or heat set using a heat gun.


Step 2

Use Brilliance Dew Drop in Starlight Silver and stamp directly over the first VersaMagic Dew Drop stamped shape.


Step 3

While the Brilliance ink is still wet sprinkle with Embossing Powder in Clear. Shake off the excess and return to the container. Heat set using a heat gun until fully melted.


Step 4

Use your Dewlet die cut shape and cut out the embossed shapes on your die-cutting machine.


Step 5

I used my Dewlet shapes on my layout to create a beautiful flower element rising out from above the photo matt. These Dewlet shapes are perfect as flower petals but can be used for so much more.
