Hello everyone ! Lounon here !
Today is all about making the most of your EAP (Effortless Artistry Paper).
You must be familiar with them by now, but just in case for those who don't know, what are they? EAP is a paper pack containing pre-colored sheets, designed to coordinate perfectly with stamps and dies. They have been pre-colored for you with alcohol markers so you can create directly with them!
For today's card, I used the Crafty Meraki EAP - Whimsical Magnolias, Whimsical Magnolias Stamp Set, and Para-Dies. I could have used the EAP pre-colored images by themselves, but I decided I wanted to add some shine, so I embossed them.
So first, I placed my sheet from the Crafty Meraki EAP - Whimsical Magnolias on my stamping platform.
Then, I placed my stamp from the Whimsical Magnolias Stamp Set on top of it. I aligned them. Small tip: check your alignment with the sentiments. I stamped my images with a watermark inkpad. I added gold embossing powder and embossed them with my heat gun.
I used the coordinate Para-Dies to cut them! Ta-daaa ! You now have beautiful embossed flowers ready to use !
After that, I cut two 5.5" x 2 5/8"rectangles: one onto white cardstock and one onto vellum. I inked the white one with pink ink, splattered some ink and water on it. I cut three circles on my panel.
Then, I used my Crafty Meraki Shape Shifters Stencil on top of it and applied gold texture paste.
I stamped my sentiment from the Crafty Meraki Paper Hugs Stamp set onto my piece of vellum with a watermark ink pad, and I embossed it with gold embossing powder. I glued my vellum panel behind my pink one.
I matted and layered it with a bigger 2 3/4" x 5 3/4" gold rectangle.
Finally, I glued my flowers on my panel.
Et voilà !
May the craft me with you !
