Hello and Welcome !

Todays ‘Blog Hop’ we are all showcasing projects using the gorgeous ‘Spring’ like Stampin’ Up! cardstock colours Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron and Blushing Bride, pictured in the graphic in the header above.

Today I am sharing a technique I shared with attendees of my recent Totally Techniques Creative Retreat Weekends.

Pop of Petals – Stamping with Glue Technique

I’ve seen this technique referred to as ‘stamping with glue’ but I am rather precious of my stamps and didn’t fancy getting PVA glue lodged in the fine details on my stamps.

Showing the Black ‘dot’ on punch and each stamp to help line up

I found this works best using a stamp that has a coordinating punch or die. My images were stamped twice in each ink colour, Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride and So Saffron, on a scrap of Very Vanilla card.  Punch or die-cut shape from another scrap of card to create a mask template.

Next squeeze some Tombow Multipurpose Adhesive onto a Silicone Craft Sheet (oops….mine was elsewhere so I used a plastic lid). Place your mask over stamped image and gently dab glue over image with a sponge.

Mask removed and covered with Stampin’ Glitter

Remove your mask and, whilst Tombow is still wet, pour over Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter, tapping off excess back into tub, and allow to dry. You can also heat briefly with a Heat Tool, to speed up the process.  Gently brush off any excess glitter with a soft brush and you will get minimal shedding from your project.

Pop of Petals punched out (glittered and non-glittered)

To build my card, I cut a Pear Pizzazz card base with a So Saffron layer and Very Vanilla top layer which had been stamped in Blushing Bride using the Crackle Paint background stamp. Edges were sponged using Blushing Bride ink pad.

A smaller Very Vanilla was stamped in Pear Pizzazz ink to add some stems. Flowers were then assembled with the plain petal at the back and glitter petal off-set on the front. I then shaped these in the palm of my hand, before attached above the stems.
