Supplies

  • Hampton Arts JD4834 Sentiment Tree Stamp
  • Versamark ink pad
  • Ranger Embossing Powder Gold (EPJ00198)
  • Heat tool
  • Adirondack Metallic Acrylic Paint Dabber Gold
  • 4" x 5 1/4" Recollections gemstones green paper
  • 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" white cardstock for base
  • Encore Ultimate Metallic Gold Ink

Directions

  1. Half fold white card base to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".
  2. Paint edges of top front gold using dabber. For best results, paint folded on a non stick craft sheet and place a larger piece of scrap paper inside the card to protect the bottom half. Set aside to dry.
  3. Stamp sentiment tree in center of green gemstone paper using Versamark ink.
  4. Cover with gold embossing powder. I found if I held the paper at a 120 degree angle and used a generous amount any excess powder rolled off this particular paper quickly and I did not need any kind of antistatic powder to get a good image.
  5. Heat set powder. The powder I used was very dull in color and turned a bright gold when melted so it was very easy to tell when it was set.
  6. Mount green to dry card front.
  7. Stamp your choice of words inside using a gold ink.
