Tuesday Tip/Technique

Hello friends
Today's Tuesday Tip/Technique was featured previously on the Crafty Power Blog
but I have received quite a few requests to detail it again so here goes...
This is a technique using Spellbinders® Expandable Pattern dies.
I've used Botanical Swirls for this demonstration but it also looks
wonderful with Butterfly Magic.
You need one 3D Foam Creative Sheet - remove the backing sheet (keep to one side)
and stick your 3D Foam Creative sheet onto a piece of white card.
On the other side, position your die template and run through your die cutting machine to cut –
no need to emboss.
This is how it will look when cut.
Begin to remove certain sections of the layer sheet - pokey tool works perfectly for this.
I chose to reveal the leaves and swirls, leaving the background in place.
Cover with glitter and then tap off the excess.
Using the backing sheet you put to one side, lay over the glittered surface and
burnish lightly with a bone folder.
You can then remove the remainder of the top layer and cover with a different colour glitter.
Again tap off the excess, burnish and your sheet is completely decorated.
I then chose to die cut with Spellbinders® Classic Hearts.
A simple card to keep the beautiful hearts as the main feature.

Fun and sparkly to do!
Take care friends, back tomorrow.

Hi Christine, that is a stunning effect, I must try this, need to buy some decent glitter first I think I also liked your tip about spritzing through this die with glimmer mist.
Take care,
