Gold leafy borders with doily flowers

Welcome to my blog and thank you so much for your visit. Take time to look around and see if any of my projects inspire you!

I am an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator based in the UK, so if you live in Austria, France, Germany, Netherlands or United Kingdom, you are eligible to purchase from me, but regardless of where you are from, I do appreciate your visit to my blog.

Some of the products I have used are available as Last Chance Products – While Supplies last or until 2ndJune 2020.  See below for the specific products included. 

Ok, it’s time to admit that I really like shiny things on black backgrounds!  (I’m sure that I am not alone on this).  I started with a piece of Basic Black cardstock measuring 47/8” x 33/8”.  The leafy border is from the Budding Borders stamp set and the sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set.  I stamped these in Versamark and added a covering of gold embossing powder to them, the excess was shaken off and heat set.  The doilies were originally the Grapefruit Grove colour, I used the Versamark ink pad directly onto them before covering in gold embossing powder and heat setting them. I repeated this process for the doilies to achieve a nice slick and even coverage.  The outer section of the doilies were then snipped off leaving the flowery centres, which I adhered to the cardstock, before attaching the panel to a 3½” x 5” Whisper White notecard.  In tomorrow’s project, I will show you what I did with the outer section of the doilies.
