Thanks for popping in. Monday’s blog is trees and flowers, right? So how about shedding a little light on a fabulous stencil of ours, called The Frameless Floral Forest …
In fact, there’s another fab stencil design called the Frameless Floral Flourish (Say that when you’ve had a few sherberts!!) Here they are in a set, complete with their mini stencils too. CLICK HERE to investigate
Out with the 8”x10” Gel Press and matching megamount . Set the stencil on the Gelpress, then dab dab dab Distress Oxides all over the stencil with our Spot-On sponges, or make-up sponges. Here is the link to our Distress Oxides department!
Peel the inky stencil carefully off the Gelpress and lay it down (half of it) on a couple of Clarity Stampboards, which are already positioned on the bottom plate of the Gemini die cutting machine, ready to be run through the mangle! This trick will work with any die-cutting machine; I just like the Gemini. That’s why we sell it!
Wait till you see the emboss on the Stampboard. Blimming brilliant!! If you haven’t got any Stampboard yet, I think it really is excellent. I didn’t use a magnetic shim or a rubber shim. Just the outer plates and the frosted one.
But look! How classy does this look?!?
Spritzed the stencil with a little water and ran it through again…beautiful
Now for the Gel Press. There’s a load of something good on there too!
Spritz the Gel press with water to clean, and maybe even pull a second ghost print? Bingo. Very arty…
So let‘s go to the Gel press print first. Chop it up into 3 inch squares and edge with a Sharpie pen.
Mount the little squares on a white 3.5” square, then on a 5” x 5” Black Card blank. One random scrap print yields six lovely notelet prints.
All we need to add now is a little meaning. Let’s speak to the heart.
What a neat little set to wrap up with a ribbon and give as a gift.
And here’s another couple of cards, made with the fabulous Stampboard!
All the sentiments come from the Feel Good factors Booklet of stickers.
Amazing what you can do with a little frameless floral forest stencil ! And I’ve still got all the offcuts! said the frugal crafter….
