AIR #2 October Paper Smooches Tutorial

My Artist in Residence Tutorial for Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko is created using Paper Smooches - which were kindly supplied to the Design Team. It is always fun trying out different stamps and seeing what we end up creating.

Using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® VersaFine™ Archival Pigment Ink full-size inkpad in Vintage Sepia, stamp the Paper Smooches image three times, cutting out using a Paper Cutter and sponge around the edges using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Sponge Daubers™.  Adhere to white card stock cut slightly larger.

Cut card base 10cm x 30cm, score across the middle at 15cm and fold in half - giving a base of 15cm x 10cm.  Cut patterned paper slightly smaller, sponge around the edges using a IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Sponge Daubers™ and IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Dye Ink Dew Drop in Espresso Truffle.



Cut out the Crafty Secrets image, sponge around the edges using a IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Sponge Daubers™ and IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Dye Ink Dew Drop in Espresso Truffle.

Using the GC-001 Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine, cut one (1) A-2 Fancy Postage Stamps Spellbinders® Nestabilities® Card Creator Dies #6 (remembering Spellbinders Dies are numbered from smallest to largest - the smallest being #1).  Adhere the sponged image to the Die cut using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® - E-Z Tape Runner.




Cut three (3) Bitty Blossoms Spellbinders® Shapeabilities® #2 and roll the flowers, gluing onto the base.  Once the glue is dry spray using IMAGINE Crafts® Sheer Shimmer Spritz™ Craft Spray in Gold to add the pretty gold shimmer.  Repeat this process once or twice more depending on the depth of shimmer required - as shown below.




Adhere the three (3) Paper Smooches panels to the lower portion of card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® - E-Z Tape Runner.  Center the layered image and adhere using the adhesive.  Glue the
Bitty Blossoms to the lower left corner of the image - as shown in the photo below.





Using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® VersaFine™ Archival Pigment Ink full-size inkpad in Spanish Moss ink half of the Penny Black Inc. -kisses in the sun butterfly image, followed by IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® VersaFine™ Archival Pigment Ink full-size inkpad in Vintage Sepia around the edges to add some definition on the wings - stamp onto white card - repeat this process a second time.



Cut out the butterflies, cutting in one pattern line inside the wings, to make the butterfly smaller,  Add glue to the butterfly body and adhere the two wings together - at the body only.  Pop up the wings using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® - Dodz 3D Clear Adhesive Dots.



Add some colour to the wings using theIMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® VersaFine™ Archival Pigment Ink full-size inkpad in Spanish Moss and IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® VersaFine™ Archival Pigment Ink full-size inkpad in Vintage Sepia.  Adhere to the top right corner of the image using Adhesive Runner.

Finish the card by adding  Want2Scrap© - Beautiful Bling Borders along the lower edge of the image and a portion of the Swirls Finesse - LeCreme Pearls

peaking out from the  Bitty Blossoms.
