Welcome everyone! This is Amanda from Twiddler’s Nook today with a fun little technique to try with your heat embossed images. I paired it with some layering die cuts and the beautiful Pinpoint Radial background die too!
Let’s jump in and get started. First, I chose the roundabout layering dies and a color palette from the Memory Box ombre paper pads. I absolutely love these for layering dies. I decided to go with a glitter cardstock for the middle layer on both cards so that’s where the second pad comes in.
After I die cut all of my layers. I chose background colors from two other Memory Box ombre paper pads as well. I die cut each one from the Pinpoint Radial Plate.
I used liquid glue to adhere all of my layers and then adhered the roundabout ring to the die cut panels. The pinpoint circles made it really easy to line up too.
I had kept the center circles from die cutting the roundabout layers just in case and decided to stamp a sentiment from the Brush Sentiments stamp set for each card on them.
Next, I pulled out the Lovely Butterflies stamp and die set and heat embossed two butterflies in white on vellum. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I pulled out a couple of copic markers and colored on the back of the vellum. Nothing fancy, this just gives the wings a little tint like stained glass.
I repeated the exact same thing twice so that I had butterflies for both of my cards. Then I moved on to assembling the rest of the pieces.
With the roundabout rings already ahered to the pinpoint background, I added foam squares to the sentiment circles and popped them up in the center. Then I added a dab of glue to the body area of the butterflies and held them in place with tweezers for a minute while the glue dried.
Once those were all dry, I added a scattering of yellow and orange fairy jewels to both designs. I just love the beautiful rainbow of colors that these come in and they give just the perfect something to finish off your design.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
