Blog Blitz – Day Three – Close to the Heart Clear Stamps | by Tracey McNeely


Welcome back to the final day of the Birch Press Design Blog Blitz! We are showcasing our new butterfly exclusive craft dies and new clear stamp set. What’s a blog blitz?  We’ll it’s a chance for us to show you some designs made with the new products and give you a chance to win.
Today I am showcasing the new Close to the Heart stamp set and matching craft dies.

I am very excited to show you what you can do with these beautiful butterfly images. Here is a look at the stamp set and the matching dies which are sold separately.

To make the projects I am sharing today the butterfly images were heat embossed on white Bristol cardstock with clear embossing powder! To do this you first prep your cardstock with an anti-static tool, embossing buddy or even a dryer sheet. Then you apply Versamark ink to the butterfly image(s) and then apply black archival ink. Stamp on to your cardstock and then sprinkle your clear embossing powder to the image(s). Heat set so that you get a smooth and shiny black embossed image. Once cooled use the craft dies to cut out the images.

I coloured the images using watercolour markers using a waterbrush to blend the colours. For my background I used the previously released Sevilla background dies cut in soft grey and white. The sentiment is from the Close to the Heart clear stamp set embossed in white on black cardstock.

For my second project I created a tag using the smaller butterfly from the set. For the background I used the Sevilla C craft die to create a stencil and applied embossing paste. A couple pieces of greenery from the Brushed Christmas Greetings stamps and craft dies set were stamped in green and tucked in between the tag base and the butterfly.

Another look at the card.
