June's Top Winner will receive 3 digital sentiments made by yours truly, and each stamper who's card is showcased will receive 1 digital sentiment made by yours truly! ;) Here's the best part--THE WINNERS get to choose what they want their sentiment to say and what style! If this doesn't sound like something you'd like, you could choose from some sentiments that I already have made. :)
This is how it will work--please email me within 5 days with the sentiment(s) that you would like and choose from the following styles: classic (ie Times New Roman type font), elegant (ie cursive font), whimsical (ie swirly/kid type font), or fun (handwriting font). More information will be mentioned when the winners are announced!
Faux Pressed Flowers
Paper flower(s)--FLAT ones
Paper leaves (optional)
Dry embossing folder
Dry embossing machine/die cut machine
Smallish piece of cardstock (mine is 3"x4")
1. This is an optional step--glue your paper leaves around your piece of cardstock to create a leafy border for your flowers.
2. Glue your paper flowers as desired on top of the leafy cardstock--use a glue stick to do this so that when you dry emboss, the glue will mash in and adhere the flowers really well.
3. Place your panel into a dry embossing folder and run through your machine. I did this 3 times in order to get really good detail. A smaller/close together dry embossing pattern is the best choice for this step.
4. Add embellishments to your flowers to create a garden scene.
5. Add to your card.
So, how are YOU going to use this technique? I can't wait to see all the fabulous creations you all come with! If you'd like to see more details of my card, please visit my personal blog, On a Stampage. Happy crafting, friends!
