This week's project is Spring Blooms, a set with delicate filigree flowers that have a boatload of detail that shows up beautifully when used in polymer clay!
Light Cocoa card stock half-sheet, folded
Pink card stock half-sheet, folded
White card stock quarter-sheet
White card stock scraps
Burgundy card stock scrap
Dark Green card stock scrap
Take the Light Cocoa and the Pink card stock pieces through the embossing folders. Tear the Light Cocoa down the middle and glue it on top of the Pink piece. Scuff the edges of the resulting card base with the Umber ink pad. Set aside for now.
Take the White card stock quarter-sheet and align the Triangle positioning template in the center. Then use Old Rose ink and a piece of blending foam and make a triangle stamping guide and prepare to stamp around the triangle.
Use glitter glue or a glitter pen around the inside of the triangle shape you made earlier.
Cut the stamped triangle out, taking care to cut around the stamped images.
Glue the stamped paper to the card base and prepare to make the sentiment medallion.
MAKE THE SENTIMENT MEDALLION
On a piece of White paper, stamp the "congrats" sentiment in Green Tea ink.
Then stamp the Tiny Flower in Green Tea ink.
Stamp the Leaves in Sage ink.
Then cut around the stamped images and glue the resulting cut-out on top of a piece of Burgundy paper (at the top) and a piece of Dark Green paper (at the bottom. Trim away the excess. Use PopIt! Shapes tape to attach the sentiment to the card, just below the tip of the stamped triangle.
Ready to make the pendant?
MAKE THE PENDANT
Since the instructions for the pendant are exactly the same every time, please refer back to the Nature's Path blog and simply replace this week's stamp set and pendant with the one shown in that particular set of instructions. Once you have finished the pendant, attach it to the card, tie your ribbons, and you're finished!
In today's project, I used the Oval Pendant from Becky Nunn to form the oval centerpiece featured on this card. This photo shows the card with the polymer clay oval only...
OTHER VARIATIONS -
You can always include the metal pendant on your project. This photo shows how you can hide the chain through a small hole cut in the card. In this photo, we show the chain coming out of the bottom of the card simply because it's so pretty!
What do you think? We would love to hear from you!
Until next week, Happy Stamping from Susan and the rest of the gang at Rubber Stamp Tapestry!
